So once again, much of Britain grinds to a halt under the weight of some unexpected early snowfall. Cars abandoned at the roadside, schools closed and many people deciding to ‘work from home’. In just about every other country affected by harsh winters, driving on snow or ice is considered the norm and causes little disruption to people’s daily lives.
This is demonstrated in no better way than the legendary Erik Carlsson who is up there with the best when it comes to driving on the white stuff. Here he demonstrates that you don’t need four-wheel-drive and snow chains to get about.
Two things strike me about this video. Firstly, just how much fun the whole thing looks. Secondly, how much I really want another Saab 900 Turbo. So that’s another car for the list of potential purchases in 2011.
