Wrooom Ice Race
The 20th edition of the Wrooom Press Ski Meeting concluded today with two spectacular races on the frozen lake in Madonna di Campiglio.
Felipe Massa, the Brazillian F1 driver, won the first, in Panda 4×4 cars. Casey Stoner and Nicky Hayden, along with Fernando Alonso crossed the line fourth ahead of Giancarlo Fisichella and joined the Brazilian on the podium.
Helmet manufacturer Schuberth, based in Magdeburg, proved once again the importance of using sophisticated, high-tech materials and fabrics: The T 1000 carbon fibre protected Brazilian Formula 1 driver Felipe Massa from serious injury during his accident at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Schuberth specialists spent about 3,000 hours working on the development of a Formula 1 helmet. Special attention is paid to the development of carbon fibre, a material which today can be used in the production of Formula 1 helmets only thanks to the skilful application of Schuberth specialists.
