Modified slightly to be able to handle ice driving, the MX-5s used spike tyres and slightly different suspension and raced around a 5km course.

Day one saw the Australian team in the lead, and according to onlookers, everyone was impressed by the Aussie's tribute to our summertime - wearing their speedos on the outside of their race-suits - Tony Abbott eat your heart out.

Day two saw Australia extend its lead until close to the end where a spin enable the Russian team to overtake and take the chequered flag, with the Aussies coming in second place.

Below you'll find a video of some of the action.
