The majority of Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) sanctioned team and individual meetings are held in Russia, Sweden and Finland, but events are also held in the Czech Republic, Germany, the Netherlands, and occasionally other countries.
Countries that dominated and won the majority of titles in Individual Ice Racing World Championship (held since 1966) and Team Ice Racing World Championship (held since 1979) were the USSR and since 1991— Russia.
The World Championship event has been dominated by the Soviet Union/Russia, who have won all but seven of the World Championship titles since 1966 up to 2021 with 44 wins! Sweden has won four times, Czechoslovakia twice and Finland once. Jawa/ESO has been the preferred machine.
