Vespa (Ape) On Ice!

No folks, this is not a festive show featuring beloved childhood cartoon characters held at Wembley Arena, but instead a form of scooter racing to while away the winter months… The Sole Valley is a valley in Trentino, northern Italy and when the skiers have gone, the locals get their Vespa/ Piaggio Ape three-wheelers out for a bit of fun. This film from 2011 was shot in Pellizzano and features various modified Apes from tuned 50cc versions up to the larger 213cc and tweaked diesel engine’d versions.

So if you’re suffering winter scooter blues, or are looking for an alternative sport to take part in over the winter, then check out the madness of Ape racing in the snow!
