Andros Trophy – Rally Cars Racing On Ice

Whilst skiing in GrandValira in Andorra yesterday, I happened to notice some cars racing on ice literally.  The idea of an ice racing series first became an idea when professional racer Max Mamers (French Rallycross Champion 1982 and 1983 with Talbot Matra Murena) and the owner of the Andros company (jam and compote producers), Frédéric Gervoson, met as rugby fans in 1985. They spent the winter racing with friends on ice circuits.

On 27 January 1990, the idea of a series came to life at Serre Chevalier with the first round of four.

The series quickly grew, with a round at Paris (Pelouse de Reuilly) in 1991 creating a five round series; and a seven round championship in 1992.

In 2003, the trophy gained an international aspect with a race at Sherbrooke in Canada, a race that was held for three seasons. For the 2005/06 season, the trophy remained mainly national, the exception being one round held in Andorra.

You know me the female voice for menswear always trying to get different stories about men. Just as exciting, great to see the first ever women to partake in this epic extremely fun race. Yes make sure you put on your seat belts.
