Driving on ice and snow can be frightening – unless you are on a winter driving experience with Jaguar. Than it’s all fun and games!
I had the chance to finally get that winter wonderland feeling this week – by travelling from dry and moody Vienna to a snowy and icy Tamsweg (Salzburg). Piles of snow and clear blue sky, whirring of stirred up snowflakes – a true frozen funpark was awaiting us.
Jaguar Winter Driving experience
Now the best part: This Jaguar Land Rover winter driving experience is bookable for everyone. For 450 euros you can ride a whole day in Tamsweg including lunch. If you want to stay longer, there’s also a package with an overnight stay in beautiful hotel Gambswirt (maybe a perfect valentine present for your better half?). During the driving experience you can choose from the whole range of Jaguar’s PACE models. And as the participants switch cars all day long you will get the chance to test drive every single one of them.
Ready, set go…
After a short theoretical part you are ready to go. And if you are afraid of colds – no problem. After 2 laps of driving even reptile blood gets boiling. But the Jaguar winter driving is not just for speed heads, but also for people who want to get more comfortable while driving on ice and in snowy conditions. After this day you won’t only have had tons of fun and adrenaline rushes while racing, but also learned a lot about handling a car in winter.
To top it all off you also have the chance to drive my favourite car at the moment: the Jaguar I-PACE. Although on ice it’s a little harder to drift with this car it still is my weapon of choice. The cause for not letting you drift that much is that you can’t shut off all the electronic assistant programs. In case you want to know why: 294 kW (400 horse powers) untamed continuous power from the first touch – that would be a bit too risky without a safety net :) But after some instruction from the winter driving crew that baby was also moving it’s tail. And I left with a huge smile, as did the other participants!
