Up to 10,000 motorsport fans used to attend the historic ice races in Zell am See. Thanks to a spectacular two-day programme, the new 2019 event promises to be just as successful.

Already committed to attend are some of the world’s most exciting racing, road and classic cars, not to mention those which offer a glimpse into the future thanks to their alternative propulsion systems. You’ll be able to see them on the traditional race tracks at the old airport taking part in skijöring, ice racing and celebrity demonstration laps.


St. Moritz, Winter Olympics 1928. Riderless horses pull skiers on the race track at maximum speed. Skijöring is becoming a cult and will soon embrace motorsport. Ten years later, the first motorised Renntandems cross the ice in Zell am See. Soon after, the first ice races for motorcycles of all classes and automobiles take place. Extreme driving distances and sporting precision, rubber and spikes, hot engines and the smell of gasoline in the ice and cold – the races on the frozen runway have lost none of their fascination over the years.

  • 1937First motorcycle skijöring on the Zeller See.

  • 1952Paul Schwarz (1928-1993) wins the newly founded Dr. Porsche Memorial Skijöring Race.

  • 1953Cars are allowed for the second skijoring race.

  • 1956The international motorcycle and auto ice racing is launched.

  • 19575000 visitors attend the race. Otto Mathé (1907-1995) records the fastest lap at 102.3 km/h.

  • 1958Because of extreme snowfall, the race has to be cancelled several times.

  • 1964Tuning legend Otto Lantenhammer sets a new track record at 109.7 km/h.

  • 1969Re-launch of the race, now on an ice track in the Alpenflugplatz area.

  • 1973Börje Sjöbom dominates the races with an average speed of 114.28 km/h.

  • 1974The race is still due to take place, despite the oil crisis, but is cancelled at short notice due to an accident with a clearing vehicle.

  • 2019For 45 years no ice race has taken place; the tradition has almost been forgotten. GREGER PORSCHE CLASSIC CARS GMBH revives the ice races and brings motorsport back to Zell am See.
