It is serene. A sheet of blue-white nothing on which to practise consequence-free supercar drifting technique, which approximates tickling the throttle in third gear and then winding on as much of the surprisingly available steering lock in the shortest amount of time as is humanly possible. Bliss. But then, on one glorious arc, there's a crack and a snap and the rear of the Agera dips drunkenly. Momentum carries us through, but it's obvious that being in a car on this ice is a stupid thing to do. So it's time to get out of the car.
