For those of you who are going to be in the Northeast in March, here's some kicks that'll keep you warm.
This looks like a great opportunity for China's smaller manufacturer's to combine some low budget cold testing with some fun.

Auto race to be held on frozen Heilongjiang River

China Daily January 18,2008

The Fifth China Mohe (International) Automobile Racing Contest on snow and ice, which is also the 2008 China Auto Rally Series Mohe stop, will be held in Mohe, the northernmost county in China's Heilongjiang Province, between March 16 and 19, the organizing committee announced in Beijing on Wednesday.

The event, inaugurated in 2004 as an automobile challenge competition on snow and ice, will be held on China's side of the frozen Heilongjiang River for various prizes.

Sixty cars driven by professional athletes from China, Russia and Hong Kong SAR will take part in the competition organized by the Federation of Automobile Sports of China, Heilongjiang Sports Bureau and Mohe People's Government.

Mohe County officials said they aim to take advantage of the contest to showcase the unique charm of Mohe and the origin of Heilongjiang River and make it a new comprehensive economic growth area of the region.
Hope Mohe County puts someone in charge of hazardous wastes so no oil will seep into the river during the event.

For the more adventurous out there, and for China manufacturers wanting to see if the heaters and defrosters work in the real world:
The annual Mohe race on the frozen tundra of northern Manchuria will begin this weekend. Starts Sunday March 8 and goes through Tuesday March 10. This will be the event's 5th season.
