GP Ice Race The GP ICE RACE 2023 is cancelled due to warm weather

Zell am See, 12.01.2022: The GP ICE RACE 2023, which was planned to take place from 27 - 29 January 2023, is cancelled due to the ongoing and exceptionally warm weather situation in the Austrian Alps. The organizers reached this conclusion after consultations with partners and sponsors.

Tickets already purchased will be fully refunded - there will be no replacement date.

After meticulous preparation and excellent ice conditions at the beginning of December, the weather change during the last weeks reduced the existing ice reserve below the minimum required, and did not allow for further ice production. Despite intensive work on alternative solutions, it quickly became apparent that the necessary conditions for a safe and smooth running of the event were not in place.
All tickets purchased through the official GP ICE RACE ticket store will be automatically refunded to the account from which they were paid. Therefore, there is no immediate need for action on the part of the ticket holders to obtain a refund. We ask for some patience and understanding as the refund process may take up to two weeks.

For questions regarding ticket (refunds), we ask all ticket holders to contact us by mail at

Racing cars on ice

Two days of motorsport under extreme conditions and in an alpine setting are on the agenda. Amateur drivers and professional racing teams meet and compete in various classes for victory on the ice race track. An absolute highlight!

Skijoring & automotive time travel

In addition to the ice race, skijoring (where a skier is pulled by a car) as well as show and demo runs await you. For car fans, the race weekend will be a journey back in time: In addition to modern dream cars, there will also be historic vehicles to admire, and the look into the future will highlight the topics of sustainability and electromobility.
