The Deep Freeze: Yamaha R1 vs Porsche 911 GT3 RS


250km/h on ice? Why the hell not!

This time, it's a 180bhp Yamaha YZF-R1 against a 450-horsepower Porsche 911 GT3 RS, both of which go head to head on an exact replica of the 5.8km Paul Ricard circuit, recreated on ice, in Lapland, in Finland. The temperature is -25 degrees and any grip available is only provided by the 2,320 spikes which the Porsche is wearing on its tyres, and the 470 spikes which the R1 is relying upon. And then, for good measure, a Mitsubishi Evo 9 and Yamaha 450WRF also decide to join in...
