Formula Snow – level 2

10-12-2015 07:00

Everybody knows Formula 1 but what about Formula Snow? The snowmobile racing event took place at an Austrian resort.

Off-duty racing drivers, mountain bikers and motor-bikers made up the teams. The event lasted for three days and attracted celebrities including Boris Becker and Pamela Anderson.

The Bike ’n Soul team won this year.

Difficult words: resort (a place where people come on holiday), off-duty (not working at that time), last (to take place).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
