The lake at St. Moritz is freezing over slowly this year and the mountains are not yet totally enrobed in snow. However, at this altitude (1,800 metres), by 24-25 February, they no doubt will be and the organisers of the International Concours d’Elegance (The I.C.E) will be assembling some 50 cars on the frozen lake for a Concours with a difference. Only three years old, the event will have a new, two-day format, with the cars on static display in a traditional concours on Friday while the judges do their work, while on Saturday, the owners and drivers will be able to let rip on the frozen racetrack used by the winter horse-racers earlier in the month. Marco Makaus and his team aim for elegance in a unique fairy tale setting, while making sure the event remains relaxed and friendly for all participants.
