Speedy Goat Time Trials on ICE

Barnes Lake

About this event

Doing racecar things with racecar friends

Join us on February 26th & 27th, 2022 for a two-day weekend of Time Trials on ICE, also known as ICE Attack!


This event is subject to a minimum driver count and a minimum ice depth. We require a minimum of 15 drivers and 10" of ice. We will monitor the conditions as time processes, but have not been able to control the weather.
Volunteers/ additional friends to run the corner stations would be greatly appreciated, however drivers may be required to rotate between corner stations and driving should additional help not be found.


Time Trials on Ice (Ice Attack) offers a safe environment for both new and experienced drivers wanting to improve their driving, find the limits of their car in low traction conditions, and have some fun. We aim to create an inclusive community for participants looking to do something different during the winter months.

Time Trials on Ice is similar to a Lapping or Time Trials track day, but on ice. You will be able to continuously lap for 15 minutes as if you were at Mission Raceway or Area 27.

Drivers are required to have experienced an ice event prior to signing up, however a special group may be created if we have 3-5 new drivers grouped together. All drivers in this novice group MUST have the same type of winter tire (Eg, studded or non-studded). Co-driving is possible, please email the registrar to help organize run groups.

Winter tires are required, but may be either studded or stud-less (rubber only).


The event is held on Barnes Lake, near Ashcroft, BC, Canada and is approximately a 4 hour drive from Vancouver. The travel time may vary depending on weather, however you should be prepared considering you plan to RACE ON ICE! A number of participants stay overnight in Ashcroft or nearby town Cache Creek for ~$80/night for a two bedroom stay. For those wanting a true out-door experience some participants chose to camp overnight next to the lake (You must be prepared for the weather).

This event is capped in the number of participants (25) - Each run group of 5 must be using the same type of winter type (studded or stud-less)

This event will follow BC COVID-19 protocol

We require a minimum of 15 drivers to participate.
Between 15 and 20 drivers, pricing will be based on the number of participants on a linear scale. A refund will be granted if we have more than 15 drivers.
