Racing Jeeps on frozen lakes is a winter sport. I, Zeb the Duck, did not race. I did not drive on frozen lakes, but some humans do. Georgetown, Colorado located 44 miles from my house, is a great destination.
We shop there, eat there, view autumn leaves there, ride a scenic train there, but now we have watched Jeeps racing on ice there. Last Sunday morning we watched Bare Rubber Ice Racing. Humans and vehicles were on the ice already.
First stop for humans is the registration area.
To race, you must have a Tech Inspection. This inspection can be done here early the morning of a race and is good for the season. You also need a Driver’s waiver, Driver’s License, Proof of Insurance, and cash to pay your entry fee. This red Jeep is racing.
When driving, snow was spraying, Jeep was accelerating and sliding in turns. This blue Jeep was also racing.
Of course, with action, you need to see it; no action in still photos. After racing, the Jeeps return to the registration area.

Dress appropriately and you will have fun. In a different area of Lake Georgetown, some were ice fishing.
Whether you want to race, ice fish, or observe, this is a beautiful location.
We always have fun in Georgetown.
