What are the chances of your car breaking through the ice? I'm a bit wary of this because I'm probably a bad driver and with my luck my car would just sink.

there are a few bids on YouTube. Search for the lake name.
It looks like there is still snow on the surface so it might replicate driving conditions similar to a snowstorm followed by rain. Either way it looks like a ton of fun!

I'm still waiting for my confirmation email. Hope they go out soon

I am sorry to say that we will NOT be Ice Racing on Sunday, January 25th. Unfortunately, we are just short (thin?) of enough ice, and there is a fair bit of snow insulating it at this time. We are going to check around the lake to see if there is enough ice anywhere else. Keep your fingers crossed for a Super Bowl Sunday Ice Race!

Hasn't happened yet, as the ice is not yet thick enough.
