Rubber To Ice Classes

The basic classes in ice racing (and the ones with the largest number of competitors) are the "rubber-to-ice" classes.

These classes are restricted to winter tires with no studs or other materials in the tires - hence the name given to the classes.

High performance winter radials from many manufacturers are used in these classes.

Other than an approved helmet, no other specialized safety equipment is required for rubber-to-ice classes - the manufacturer’s original three-point safety harness is acceptable.
