The Continental GT3-R's ice driving debut

Making its debut for the 2015 Power on Ice programme is the rarest and most dynamic member of the esteemed Continental family of Grand Tourers, the Continental GT3-R.

Inspired by the Continental GT3 race car, the limited edition GT3-R blends proven track and road credentials; a unique interpretation of performance-focussed luxury.

The Continental GT3-R will be driven in its debut on the frozen lakes piloted by four-time World Rally Champion and Bentley Boy, Juha Kankkunen.

An exhilirating driving experience

As exhilarating as it is exclusive, Power on Ice is a four-day event that allows guests to push a range of Bentley cars beyond the limitations of every-day driving.

Running throughout February 2015, the programme features two full days of extreme driving delivered by Kankkunen and in-car tuition from the vastly experienced Bentley Ice Driving Team.

Each ice track is personally designed by Kankkunen, before being ‘shaved’ into the six-foot thick frozen surface using specialist equipment – creating a new and exciting experience, even for returning customers.

Unique experiences in Bentley luxury

Guests can also enjoy activities at a slightly different pace, with snowmobile rides and ice-karting available throughout the trip.

Hosted in characteristic Bentley luxury, the home of the event is the boutique hotel of Chalet Ruka Peak.

Telaxing evening meals savouring contemporary Finnish cuisine and a traditional smoke sauna afford guests time to unwind after an adrenaline fuelled day.

A night-time Husky-sled safari adventure to a historic reindeer farm completes the immersion into Finnish culture and ensuring a truly unique experience.
