  • Description

    Snowmobile enthusiasts in Idaho, United States, have found a new way or racing their machines while waiting for the snow to fall -- face them on grass or dirt.

    Recently, the North Western States Grass Snowmobile Championship was held proving that there are now enough teams who want to carry on the sport ... even if it's held on grass. The Champion was Denny Wheats from Bore, Montana.

    These machines are capable of running up to more than 80 miles (129 kms) an hour. The only problems confronting a racer are keeping the rubber track lubricated and keeping the engines cool with ice.

    This film has a full commentary from TVN reporter Todd Owens -- a cued transcript for guidance only is given overleaf.
