This month’s 911 driving has been a little different. Few things teach you more about car control or the balance of a vehicle than driving on ice. Proper ice. Earlier this month, I parked the C4S in a frozen car park at Gatwick and headed to Sweden for two of the best days driving of my life.

Every year, Below Zero Ice Driving takes 12 classic 911s of various ridiculous provenances to a large frozen lake in Sweden to allow lucky participants to spend two days sideways grinning.

Day one starts with the cars on short button studs. Day two and the studs, circuit, drifts and grins get longer as you start to exploit the full expanse of the circuit. Get it wrong and you’ll spend a couple of corners trying to rectify it before you inevitably depart into a snowbank. It is, without doubt, the most fun you can have in a car.
