Bentley Power on Ice program will return in February 2013

Article by Anita Panait, on November 2, 2012

The Bentley Power on Ice program is set to return in February 2013, to be starred by the carmaker’s touted perfect Grand Tourer, the Bentley Continental GT. The Bentley Power on Ice program will be the perfect venue for the Continental GT’s driving prowess, as the vehicle is fitted with an all-wheel-drive system that assures maneuverability in all conditions, snow and icy conditions included.

The program offers existing owners, enthusiasts and aspiring drivers the perfect opportunity to explore the extreme limits of the Continental GT on the frozen lakes of northern Finland. Participants of the Bentley Power on Ice program will be led by a team of expert instructors, who will guide them on exploring a range of driving techniques they could employ while riding the Continental GT.

One of these expert instructors is no less than four-time World Rally champion and modern-day Bentley Boy Juha Kankkunen. Kankkunen is considered as an expert at driving Bentleys on ice – as he broke his own Ice Speed Record in February 2011, driving a Bentley Continental Supersports Convertible to 205 mph (330 km/h) on the frozen Baltic Sea off the coast of Finland.

Participants will be flown to the town of Kuusamo and will be then escorted to the exclusive ski resort of Ruka, which is around 60 km from the edge of the Arctic Circle. They will be billeted at the luxury Chalet Ruka Peak boutique hotel. The two-day Bentley Power on Ice program focuses on driving both the V8 and W12 versions of the all-wheel-drive Continental GT on the ice of the local lakes, on tracks prepared by Bentley’s winter driving team.
