Ski race - Antarctica 2010
The third expedition of the season 2010-2011 was made to assist a ski race to the South Pole, similar to the project Arctic Trucks people and vehicles supported during the filming of BBC‘s „on thin ice“. This expedition took place from December 10th to January 10th.
For this expedition, two new AT44 6x6 made their maiden trip to the South Pole along with two new AT44‘s. Additionally two of the 2008 vehicles were used to support and film the ski teams for the first 150km from Novo up to the high plateau where an airplane picked them up and flew them to 320 km from the South Pole where the actual race started.
From Arctic Trucks, Gisli Jonsson and Aron Reynisson went as expert driver/mechanics and Guðmundur Guðjonsson as driver/paramedic. A film crew from the German ZDF and Austrian ORF will join along with crew from the organizers of this race Extreme World Races.
