Where can you find a Porsche GT car like the one that won Le Mans, an F1-powered Supra and many other crazy rides competing in something totally out of their element, like on ice? The F.A.T. Ice Race Aspen Driven by Mobil 1 this weekend, February 8-10.

They're taking a lesson from Formula 1 - day tickets are $1,911 per day and the weekend pass is $7,800. No joke.

In reply to BoulderG :

That's definitely higher than many tickets for Monterey Car Week. I guess they want a very select clientele present.

Super cool event by a really rad organization, the museum I work at sent a Targa Florio winning Porsche RS-60.

I don't think they own the mountain. Take a hike to vantage point and they can f-off
