Audi driver Rahel Frey visited the famous downhill ski run ‘Freier Fall’ (‘Free Fall’) in St. Moritz on Thursday and met with ski racer Marc Berthod. They had accepted an invitation by the 2017 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships St. Moritz and Audi. At the start of the ‘Freier Fall’ men’s downhill run at Corviglia with a 100 percent descent, the World Cup downhillers accelerate from 0 to 140 km/h in six seconds. Even for experienced racers like Rahel Frey or Marc Berthod, who are used to going to their limits in terms of extreme centrifugal forces, this is an exceptional experience. “For me as someone who is not a professional skier, it is nearly impossible to imagine that you can reach the finish unharmed on this run,” Frey said in awe. Afterwards, the Audi St. Moritz Ski Champions Golf Get-Together in front of the quattro Bar at Corviglia was on the Swiss’ agenda.
