Every Sunday in the winter the Lakes Region Ice Racing Club holds races on either Berry Pond or Lee Pond in Moultonboro – conditions permitting, of course. If you’re driving along Route 25 the event is hard not to notice. The club has been in existence for 30 years, and they race cars on a 1/3 mile oval track on a frozen pond … something that sounded pretty strange at first to us Northwesterners. Their biggest event, the Latchkey Cup, is held in January and raises money for a local cancer society. Although we never went to any of the races, we did stop one Sunday to watch from a distance and get a few photos. This has to be one of the best ways to have fun in the winter!
The first two photos here were borrowed from the Lakes Region Ice Racing Club website; the rest are mine. Enjoy!
