In an unconventional crusade of sport, Russian car enthusiasts banded together in 10-person teams to go curling with Oka micro-cars recently, reports Carscoops.

The automotive curling action took place in Yekaterinburg, Russia, with four teams taking to the ice to see who could place their cars closest to the centre ring, in keeping with standard curling rules.

The cars were launched under human power, and had their engines and brakes disabled, with one team member left with the unsettling job of steering the curling-car along its high-impact course.

The city of Yekaterinburg awarded the winning team with 100,000 rubles ($2,300 CAD) for a bang-up job on the ice.
