Ski World Championships 2003 in St. Moritz
Spectacular – the Audi Ice Lounge in St. Moritz. The drinks were served on ice, in the true sense of the word at the heart of St. Moritz. A work of art, illuminated in blue-turquoise light against the backdrop of the Engadin evening sky during the Alpine Ski World Championship 2003.
The “Audi Ice Lounge” measured 22 metres in diameter and was almost five metres high. A total of one hundred and eighty tonnes of clear and smoked ice were used. Building preparations started three months beforehand. The “Audi Ice Lounge” was assembled over the course of 16 days from 1850 ice blocks each weighing 100 kilos.

Nick Heidfeld with BMW Sauber F1 Team at the Nürburgring
Fascinating - Nick Heidfeld’s journey into history. It has been over three decades since the greatest racing cars on the planet came face-to-face with the world’s most challenging circuit. The BMW Sauber F1.07 was the first Formula One car for 31 years to grace the Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife track. A full day in the Eifel mountains with the BMW Motorsport racing arsenal.
In front of a crowd numbering 45,000 BMW Sauber F1 Team driver Nick Heidfeld was extremely enthusiastic after three laps in the F1.06:
“This drive was simply incredible. I thought it would be great to drive on the Nordschleife before I started out. But it was even better than I had expected. This racing track is the best in the world. I’d really like to have emptied the tank. It was a very special moment when I left the grand prix circuit in the direction of the Nordschleife. I was really shaken up at the Bergwerk section and on the Döttinger Höhe. I’ll never forget today as long as I live. Another particularly special experience has now joined the many fantastic childhood memories and racing successes.”
