Portuguese football icon Jose Mourinho said his adrenaline soared when Finnish Driver Tommi Karrinaho full throttled the Jaguar F-PACE S they were test driving through the laps of a highly isolated extreme driving facility somewhere near the North Pole.
According to Mourinho, the only experience he could liken it to was when he walked into a football game in front of 80,000 fans. And it’s not hard to imagine why. This extreme driving facility belongs to Jaguar Land Rover and is located in Arjeplog, Sweden, just 40 miles from the Arctic Circle.
Sitting on top of a 60km frozen lake, the facility offers the Jaguar Ice Drive Experience to customers of this high end car all over the world. Recounting his experience, Mourinho describes it as magnificent. With temperatures as low as -30 degrees, his driving skills were tested to the limit inside the capable Jaguar F-PACE and improved on with the help of the professional driver Tommi Karrinaho.
In the end, Mourinho can confidently claim that he has mastered drifting at top speeds and in the harsh driving conditions offered by the isolated facility. It was a rare opportunity for him to learn to drive like a pro, an opportunity that Mourinho gladly took. According to him, he is always learning and would love any experience where he would learn something new. He said that even in football, there is always something to learn every day.
The extreme isolation of the facility woke up Mourinho’s philosophical tendencies as the three-time Prime League-winning manager contemplates on his next move. He reflects that he has been a football manager for as long as he can remember, it is his passion.
This second time that he stopped coaching is just a pause in his coaching career and he is sure he will soon be pulled back into the game.
Mourinho currently owns a Jaguar F-TYPE Couple but is eagerly anticipating the arrival of the recently-ordered new Jaguar F-PACE which he just test-drove with Karrinaho. The Jaguar F-PACE is exceptional performance-wise and this is even highlighted given the extreme testing weather condition they were in.
