French customizer Ludovic Lazareth has designed the Snowtrack to revolutionize winter motor sports. By adding two driven tracks to the front of a snowmobile (replacing the traditional skis), the tracks will provide additional traction under acceleration — increasing cornering speeds, eliminating slides and making it possible to get on the power earlier.

As Hell for Leather reports:

Anyone who’s ridden a traditional snowmobile knows that the experience is dominated by power slides — fun, but ultimately not the fastest way to go around a corner. Think of the way in which cars like the Subaru STI and Mitsubishi EVO have redefined what performance cars are capable of. Their all-wheel-drive systems have replaced the tail-happy nature of traditional supercars with less dramatic, but faster cornering, also making higher speeds accessible to the less talented. We would expect the same from the Snowtrack.

Currently just a concept, Lazareth is known for wild one-off trikes, quads and bikes, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see a working prototype once winter rolls around.”

I’m putting my Xmas list in early this year…
