F.A.T. International Ice Race Aspen recap


In early February, the famed F.A.T. International Ice Race came to the United States for the first time, and we were fortunate to be a part of this exciting event. Fresh snow, an incredible fleet of cars, and even better company all made this event one for the history books.

Road Scholars and the Ingram Collection brought out the 1955 550 Spyder chassis 550-0073, 959S chassis 004, and the Keen Project 1978 911 SC to take to the ice for some low-grip laps around the course. These cars were in great company- flanked by the last 550 Spyder ever made, chassis 550-0090, and the Revs Institute’s Targa Florio winning 1960 Porsche RS-60. Our friend Dieter Inzenhofer was on hand to keep the cars running their best and to re-jet 550-0073 for the Aspen altitude.

As part of Mobil 1’s 50th-anniversary celebration, 11 Mobil-1 sponsored cars with an all-star cast of drivers took to the ice. One of the highlights for us was the 1998 Le-Mans winning GT1 was piloted around the track by none other than one of the legendary drivers who piloted the car to victory- Stephane Ortelli.

It was sensory overload for any car lover, and a wonderful change of pace to spend a laid-back weekend with great people and some of the best cars in the world in a very unique Après-ski atmosphere.
