While many of us have endured enough snow this winter to last a lifetime, car racing in snow is a whole different experience.
It’s fun, fast and watching cars drift through – well, real snow drifts – there’s just no comparison.
The NBC Sports Network on Saturday kicks off its coverage of the 2014 Rally America National Championship season with it’s telecast of the Sno*Drift Rally, which took place in Atlanta.
Snow drifts in Atlanta? Yep, but not the one in Georgia, the one in Michigan. (Look it up on a map, it’s there, about 225 miles north of Detroit)
With drivers reaching 100 mph cutting through the white stuff, the Sno*Drift Rally is the only dedicated snow and ice event on the Rally America schedule, and kicked off the eight-race season.
Check out an example of what you’ll see in the video below.
The RANC is the premier rally racing series in the U.S., comprised of eight events that traverse the country on surfaces from dirt to gravel to snow, and from Portland, Ore. To Newry, Me.
Be sure to catch the Sno*Drift Rally on Saturday, right after Formula One qualifying, at 2 p.m. ET on NBCSN.
