Speed Days on Lake Baikal Ice
Lubov Elizavetina, Executive Director of Club GT, visited the Baikal Ice Speed Days festival. The Baikal speed festival is held in natural conditions on an ice track. The coefficient of traction in such conditions is 150 times lower than on the asphalt, and it takes a huge distance for the participants to speed up before the test section and then to stop. The risk of side slips is also high here. It is for these reasons that the Baikal track stretches more than ten kilometers in length and has a special 300-meter safety lane.
