Skaters at Evergreen Lake on Jan. 11 were treated to car races on the ice — radio-controlled cars, that is.
The small race course was in a corner of the rink, and skaters came by to watch as the cars, 14 inches long by 8 inches wide, moved deftly around hairpin turns and through straightaways. Think video games, only much more real and out of doors.
Sunday’s races were part of a 10-event series called the Colorado Rally Championship. The races take place October through April, and the cars race on all sorts of terrain: gravel, mud, snow and now ice.
