  • beenhere What is needed from the equipment?

    Most importantly, you should be dressed in accordance with the weather - warm jacket or coat, gloves, trousers, shoes. We will provide you a shovel and a helmet. The obligatory requirement is neatly gloves. Very thin gloves do not guarantee neither heat nor safety. Participation in events without gloves is prohibited. Actually without pants too.

  • beenhere Is it safe?

    It's as safe as basketball, football or volleyball. Some bruise could be obtained, but that's all. We, of course, recommend elbow protectors in individual runs and knee protectors in doubles.

  • beenhere How much does it cost?

    Individual discipline - 66.30 EUR.

    Doubles - 81.60 EUR.

    Combined discipline 'Individual + Individual + Doubles' - 191.25 EUR.

    We also recommend attending training sessions where you can try out Showelrace in a non-competitive environment as well as refine your driving skills.

    In training you pay for the number of runs. The more runs, the lower the price for one run.

  • beenhere What to do if the outside is warm or raining?

    The race season takes place regardless of the weather. The track is completely covered, so there is no need to worry about that case. Refrigeration equipment is capable of providing high-quality ice even in all summer weather.

  • beenhere How are the events evaluated?

    The evaluation of men's, women's and doubles events takes place in two categories:

    1) According to the best (fastest) time shown in the sum of two race runs.

    2) After two similar runs. The one who has the closest run to other run is the winner of the race. The key is to make the two runs as similar as possible.

    You can find a complete description of the ranking by category in the event rules at the top of the Showelrace homepage.

  • beenhere Is it possible to prepare or do some training exercises?

    This is not only an opportunity, but we strongly recommend to do that. Trainings are a great opportunity not only to improve your shoveling skills, but also to try out what's in Showelrace, not in race mode. If you are shy to take part in the event, then trainings are perfect fit for you.
