Pure McLaren has announced its inaugural ice driving experience, taking place in January 2017. Set against the backdrop of northern Finland, 320 kilometres into the Arctic Circle, the Pure McLaren Arctic Experience will be the only ice driving programme in the world to offer the thrill of the multi-award-winning McLaren Sports Series.
The programme is designed to give guests an extraordinary experience on snow-covered roads and an ice track. Like all Pure McLaren events, the exhilarating programme is tailored to the drivers’ needs to help them achieve their goals, whether that’s mastering the famous Scandinavian flick or building their confidence in challenging driving conditions.
The team of professional driver coaches from Pure McLaren are working with renowned winter testing facility Test World, a leading proving ground based in Ivalo, Finland, to provide one of the most varied ice driving experiences available. Test World’s expansive grounds coupled with Pure McLaren’s professional drive team will provide a safe and secure environment to learn and practise in.
Guests will experience the McLaren 570S Coupe, tackling a variety of track configurations that encompass both ice and snow surfaces. The exhilaration continues away from the track, with Pure McLaren teaming up with local travel provider Luxury Action to offer an exciting programme of winter activities, including a husky safari and snowmobile expedition.
Accommodation will be provided in the beautiful Javri Lodge, the former home of the longest-serving President of Finland, Urho Kekkonen. Guests will enjoy the very best of Finnish hospitality in a remote location nestled within the untamed Lappish wilderness, amongst vast lakes and forests. It’s also in an ideal position for viewing the Northern Lights.
The Pure McLaren Arctic Experience will take place from January 15 to February 3, 2017. It offers groups of up to 14 guests a three-night stay. The event is open to drivers and non-drivers, McLaren owners and non-owners, and will be the first Pure McLaren activity of a busy 2017 schedule.
