2022-01-25T11:09:13.259Z

NEWS - At the initiative of the 2 CV Méhari Club Cassis, once a year, 2 CV enthusiasts indulge in the joys of driving on ice. Guaranteed sensations!



The skiers do not believe their eyes.

At the foot of the Lans-en-Vercors ski lifts, around thirty Citroën 2 CVs from all eras, original, prepared to the extreme or transformed into buggies, and their van and Dyane derivatives sweep the entire width of the track and advance in crab, when they do not draw arabesques, on the ice circuit of this winter sports resort nestled on the heights of Grenoble.

To the left.

To the right.

One could believe in a choreography, so the ballet seems perfectly orchestrated.

Except that, sometimes, a competitor, perhaps a little more impetuous than the others, comes out of the ranks.

Red flag.

End of session.

Nothing serious but the 2 CV stuck in a wall of snow obstructs the trajectory.

The technique of countersteering

On the pre-grid, the drivers of the following session could not hide their impatience, heating up the famous twin-cylinder of 602 cm3 with great blows of gas.

Others wait in silence: their mount is converted to electric thanks to the R-Fit kit developed by the 2 CV Méhari Club Cassis, the company behind the Coupe 602 initiative in 2019. regularity - it's not a speed race - is damned addictive.

For a moderate cost including registration (€620) and a set of studded or contact tires approved for the road, the whole vocabulary of driving on ice is called upon.

Braking in support, call against call... This Cup allows you to indulge in the joys of sliding and to become familiar with the technique of counter-steering with no other stake than to have fun.

The pace is never very high: hardly any risk of getting hurt.

On the track and in the paddock, the behavior is similar to that of gentlemen.

Faced with the enthusiasm generated by this formula, its organizers are now considering creating a championship of four or five meetings per year.

We can only encourage them.
