The McLaren Ice Driving Centre encompasses three lakes and over 100km of almost permanently frozen roads and hillside trails. It is here you will test the limits of both ythe driving and the McLaren 570S. Over two days of driving activity you will rotate through multiple frozen track configurations working with your McLaren Ice Driving Specialist as you master the basics and then advanced driving skills, and ultimately understand how to get the most from the power and agility of your McLaren.

 

The Experience

Join McLaren for a very special experience 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle. As the temperature plummets in Northern Finland, the landscape crystallises and sets the scene for what will be an unforgettable driving adventure. Within one of Finland’s most expansive winter testing facilities, you will discover the power and agility of the McLaren 570S by pushing your driving skills to the limit with the help of their professional coaches. With its ice tracks specially designed for McLaren, this is the perfect winter wonderland to put the McLaren 570S and your driving, to the ultimate test.

Set within a dedicated winter testing facility in Finland, the McLaren Ice Driving Centre encompasses three lakes and over 100km of almost permanently frozen tracks, making this the most varied ice driving experience in the world. The facility has been expanded for 2018 to offer more track configurations, challenging even those more advanced drivers.

When you’re in need of respite from the exhilaration of drifting around the ice and snow, you can relax by the warmth of the roaring fire in the McLaren Kota – a traditional Finnish building. You’ll also want to refuel and the Kota will provide refreshments and catering throughout the day. Lunch is a particular highlight with your delicious Finnish meal being cooked right in front of you over the open fire.

 

In the Driving Seat

Learning to drive on ice is a unique experience, one that will stay with you long after the snow has melted. And of course, being behind the wheel of a McLaren 570S makes it all the more exhilarating.

Working with one of their Pure McLaren Driver Coaches you will manoeuvre at your own pace through a variety of track configurations encompassing both ice and snow surfaces. Across two days, there is plenty of time to develop your skills in this one of a kind environment.

Your experience will begin when you venture onto the frozen playground that is the McLaren Ice Driving Centre. When on the ice the slightest of steering and throttle adjustments can invoke a drift. Your coach will help you understand how to manipulate the car and use the slide to your advantage.

 

Adventures in the Snow

The fast pace does not end on the track. Explore a magical winter landscape of snow-capped forests and frozen lakes with a snowmobile safari and husky sledding experience. The non-driving guests will have the opportunity to further explore the Finnish wilderness with snowshoeing and a visit to the Sami reindeer herders. Here you will learn about the Sami way of life and hand-feed these magnificent creatures. Away from the Arctic cold non-drivers can also indulge in a luxury Finnish spa day with a traditional sauna.
