What's all this about?

It's a Bentley driving experience event, which sounds glamorous enough already, without us telling you what's involved...

And what IS involved?

Well, the Power on Ice 2015 event runs throughout February in Finland. Guests can book to go on any of the four-day trips running during this time, which involve two bookend travelling days and two solid days of adrenaline-filled driving.

You're being evasive about exactly what driving is involved.

This is an ice driving event, if the name hadn't given the game away. Lined up will be Bentley's Ice Driving Team and no less a bod than Juha Kankkunen, four-time world rally champion and all-round top driving bloke. Guests get tuition on how to drive a number of Bentleys on ice at speed from these people, and included in the machinery line-up is the new GT3-R, the most focused Continental yet.

Now that does sound like fun. Can I go along?

If you're fairly well off, yes. The package includes accommodation at the luxurious Chalet Ruka Peak hotel in northern Finland, the use of a traditional smoke sauna and even night-time Husky-sled safaris, but it'll cost you at least €11,340 (around £8,956) per person. If you're still interested, go to events.bentleymotors.com, or call the Bentley Driving Team on 01675 445945 for information or to book a place.
