Remember the scene from 007 Die Another Day where the Aston Martin Vantage and Jaguar XKR race across the frozen ground in Iceland? Bentley is offering you a chance to live that scene out with its Arctic Circle Driving Experience. Of course, your experience will feature the finest automobiles from the British marque, but there won’t be any machine guns popping out of the hood either.
In conjunction with international charity Care2Save, Bentley has pledged two spots for its very exclusive Power On Ice event held in Finland. So beginning December 1st, 2014 and running through January 8th, 2015, the public will be able to pledge as little as one British Pound to be entered in a contest to fill the two spots up for grabs. That’s not a bad deal for all the power sliding you can imagine yourself doing, especially when you consider that proceeds from the drawing will go towards improving excellence in hospice and palliative care around the globe. In addition to the two spots in Power On Ice, Bentley is also donating exclusive gifts for those who buy a number of entries into the competition, including a tour of Bentley’s Crewe, England factory.
The four-day-long Power On Ice event will allow drivers to push Bentleys to their limits on the frozen terrain, including the opportunity to pilot the Bentley Continental GT3-R, all under the professional direction of four-time World Rally Champion Juha Kankkunen. The tracks will be designed by Kankkunen himself, and of course the whole event will be held in typical high-luxury Bentley standards.
Over the course of the four days, the lucky winners will also have the chance to participate in snowmobile rides, ice karting (uh, awesome!) and night-time Huskey sled safari adventures to reindeer farms. Remember, all it costs is the equivalent of a dollar and some change to enter for a chance to win your spot in the one-of-a-kind experience.
Bentley has been a long-time advocate of Care2Save, which was created by the fundraising team at St. Luke’s Hospice in Cheshire. “Bentley has been a long-term supporter of St Luke’s, valuing its contribution to the local community and the important role it plays in caring not only for Bentley employees and their families, but the wider community as well. We look forward to working with Care2Save more and supporting the invaluable work it does to help hospices around the world”, said Marlies Rogait, Bentley’s Member of the Board for Human Resources.
