Watch two cars sink in the St. Lawrence River during an ice race

Bryar Lawrence, who runs the event, said, “We all know the risk we take as soon as we get on that ice and everyone understands this sport we love, comes with these types of risk.”

A driver not involved in the sinkings said the ice was 14-16 inches thick and the race’s minimum for holding the event is 10 inches, so he said the ice thickness was not a factor. Though, well, obviously, seems that it was. 

Nobody was injured, and the two sunken cars were recovered the next day.
