SUTHERLANDS LAKE - Frigid temperatures could not keep snowmobile-racing lovers away from Sutherlands Lake Saturday.
"What an adrenaline rush!" said Kevin Cooke, 19, of Great Village shortly after completing one race and heading into another.
About 80 participants from throughout the Maritimes revved up for a day of competition on the 660 foot long lake during the fifth annual event.
More than a thousand spectators took in the action throughout the day. Some huddled together for warmth while others abandoned all sense of the cold weather (about -20 degrees C with the wind chill) and cheered on racers with shouts and clapping that was sometimes muffled by all the layers of mittens and gloves spectators wore to draw some heat.
