Video: Speedhunters Toyota 86-X earns third place at Gatebil on Ice!

Posted 2013-01-26

This weekend, Fredric Aasbø and the Speedhunters Toyota team brought the 86-X to Gatebil on Ice. Organized much in the same spirit as the summer festivals, the Gatebil on Ice allows drivers and teams to test their equipment on a frozen lake deep inside the Norwegian woods.

Fredric brought a set of WRC studded rally tires, which provides the best possible grip in the harsh and slippery conditions. The grip levels of these tires almost surpass the grip you’d normally have on normal, paved race tracks, which makes for incredible speed on what is essentially black ice.

A fuel problem hampered the car’s performance and with only about 200 horsepower on tap for the Breisladd competition, Fredric had a hard time trying to keep up with the competition. Still, the KRB Trading team, who helped out with the pit duties for the weekend, and Fredric, earned the third podium spot as well as the Car of the Show award.

- Thanks for a great weekend!, Fredric cheered after the icy rooster tails had settled. – This was a great first test of the 86-X, and I can’t wait to kick off the 2013 Gatebil summer season!
