I know its not Grand Prix or F1....one thing I'd like to do is go to an Andros Trophee Ice Race in the French Alps. Does anyone know if any of the Motorsport Travel companies include these on their lists of events?

I could try and arrange everything myself but for a weekend, might be easier to go on a 'package' holiday as it were. I've seen the dates for the 2014/15 season, would need to be in 2015 as I'm already booked for the Dec 2014 dates.


Thanks in advance

Book a skiing holiday but don't bother with the ski hire or the lift pass.


I was snowboarding at Alpes D'Huez one year and the Andros Trophy and been there the week before. The track was still there and I got a couple of posters from the lobby of a nearby hotel.

Am attending the Andros Trophee in Lans-en-Vercors Fri 20th / Sat 21st Jan 2017. No package tour operators, so have booked [almost] everything myself...flights to/from Lyon [Thurs 19th, return Sun 22nd]....train Lyon - Grenoble & back, hotels in Grenoble [19th] and Lans-en-Vercors [20th & 21st] and VIP Tickets for the Ice Racing which runs from 17.00 - 23.00 hrs both evenings. I booked VIP tickets...well, rather than stand on an icy bank in freezing weather eating from a french burger van, I can watch from indoors, food & drink laid on !!

Just got the local journeys Grenoble - Lans-en-Vercors to sort out nearer the time, there are buses...it's getting back on the Sun am in time to catch my train that is the difficulty, may even take a taxi [it's only a 35 - 40 min drive]....

Looking forward to it....
