NASCAR comes to ice racing: Merry Christmas!
Ancient Yuletide carols were trolled at the alpine resort of Alpe d'Huez recently when one racer tried to deck a fellow competitor.
It happened in the midst of an Andros Trophy ice buggy race when fifty year old Olivier Panis, a Grand Prix driver know mostly for crashing and one lucky win, did not accept being shoved into hay bales as a Christmas greeting.
The well wisher was 25 year old Adrien Tambay, son Patrick, the 1980's Ferrari (and Beatrice Hass) driver.
Oo-la-la, Oooh-pop-pop-pop.... C'est d'homage.
A Gallic version NASCAR ensued.... unfortunately, unlike les amis Americain, French tv cut away just when it was getting good.
Ah, Christmas .... Axis of Oversteer wishes you a merrier one.
