Watch An Audi RS6 Go A Record 209 MPH On Ice

It's one thing to break 200 mph. It's a totally different ballgame to do it on ice.

The people behind this run are Nokian Tyres, who set the previous record with 206.5, beating out Bentley's more stately record before that.

Technically this run was 208.6, not 209. Still wildly impressive.

The fact that this is on ice brought up a physics question in my mind:

If you're driving on ice at 20mph, you probably don't need to take into account the extra weight from downforce. But 208mph? How much force was the Audi exerting on the ice because of the air traveling over it at 208mph? At what point would it just push the car through the ice?
