Sometimes, what you watch is just too incomprehensible to believe, and only someone with loose screws in his head could possibly pull something off - and have a smile on his face while doing it.

In a nutshell, that’s what this video is all about. Ever the bold and daring type, EVO Magazine’s features editor, Henry Catchpole, is determined to take an open-top Caterham Supersport up a French mountain, which, incidentally enough, has snow on it. Undaunted by the task, Catchpole bravely - and we use that term loosely - ascends up the mountain on a car that’s missing a roof and is probably not as suited as most in that kind of environment.

Never mind the fact that it’s probably freezing up that mountain; what gets us is his seeming nonchalant, devil-may-care attitude as he tries to muster up every last ounce of power on that Caterham’s 140-horsepower, 1.6-liter Ford engine as it slides along the snow-covered road.

You can’t say that Catchpole isn’t trying; but for the sake of keeping his body temperatures in check, he might opt for a Caterham with a roof for his next snowy mountain escapade.

I think I’m starting to like Snow driving. I want to try this to feel the great intensity and thrill.

I’m more than amused with this; I’m actually impressed on how efficient it is on snow.

LOL the man and the car are both highly amusing and impressive. I wish I’d see more of them!

They are really having fun playing on the ice with the vehicles. I’ve seen a very impressive car performance; I’m really entertained.

Haha, this man is epic. Because of him, I saw the capability of the open-top Caterham Supersport. They’re both impressive, the car and he.
