Bentley will host an extraordinary driving experience in February and March 2009 …with the remote snowscape of Finland as a backdrop.
The Bentleys awaiting the participants in this driving extravaganza will be 560-610 hp cars from the Continental series. After receiving a briefing from accomplished instructors the drivers will take to the road across a frozen lake in the centre of Finland. Temperatures as low as -30 degrees are no rarity in the region, yet they also help ensure that the ice presents a perfect surface on which to drive. The motoring conditions at this location a mere 60 km from the Arctic Circle are no less unique than the programme itself.
Quite apart from the thrilling hours spent at the wheel of a Bentley guests can expect first-class service in specially designed accommodation. In the small town on Ruka, approx. 800 km north of Helsinki, Bentley is creating its own private holiday village consisting of a small boutique hotel and a number of exclusive chalets. Guests will enjoy all modern conveniences, with staff on hand around the clock. Food will be prepared by renowned Finnish chef Jarmi Pitkänen. The programme also features guided snowmobile trips and a dog-sledding excursion, with guests free to try their hand at driving a team themselves.
The price of this all-inclusive package lies between 7,590 and 8,990 euros. Detailed travel and booking information is available on www.bentleydriving.com/poweronice or from your nearest Bentley partner.
