HIGH PERFORMANCE DRIVING ON ICE AND SNOW
Our Arctic Driving Days is based in "Tahkovuori", East of Kuopio in Finland. You 'll fly less than an hour from Helsinki to Kuopio. Both Finnair (One World) and Blue 1 (Star Alliance) fly on this route. Baltic Airline flies from Rika to Kuopio. From Kuopio you'll travel just about an hour by car to our base.
The training cars are front wheel drive Ford Focus, Mini and rear wheel drive BMW ice race cars. Each participant will have the chance to learn both types of car. The tyres are special ice racing studded tyres with long spikes. This gives the participants the experience to feel a stronger centrifugal force and find the problems and recovery of high speed slides and drifts. This will help later in unforeseen tight situations on normal roads in everyday traffic or in rallies.
The training days are divided in sections; this gives the possibility to combine training of specific safety methods with pure fun of a perfect car control. The groups are kept small; hence every participant will get personal attention during the training. This improves the learning success.
The primary note is set on individuality. The smallest size of each course is minimum 6 participants. The program of the training is based on fun, new experiences, which will lead to a better overall vehicle control and a higher personal traffic safety.
The participants must have a motorcar or motorcycle driving licence and should have normal physical health. We recommend alpine skiing underwear, winter jacket and winter shoes for car training. Large polar boots are not suitable for car driving.
In case of snowmobile driving all equipment including helmet and warm boots are supplied.
The price includes all costs in accordance with the program from the group arrival to the group return transfer to the Kuopio Airport. All alcoholic beverages and damage to vehicles and equipment are to be paid by the participant.
The entry confirmation fee is half of the price and is to be paid during one week after reservation. The reservation is not valid if the payment is not paid on time. The remaining part of the fee is due on eight weeks before event. In case of cancellation the confirmation fee will be charged as a cancellation fee. If the cancellation is four weeks before the event or later, the total price will be charged. We withhold the right to change the program, postpone or entirely cancel the
event in case of important reasons. In case of entire cancellation the entry fee will be returned. All further requirements for any loss or damages are excluded.
In case of overbooking we reserve the right to limit the number of participants.
The participant agrees in case of a dispute of this agreement of conditions or any incident or requirement arising in connection of this event to settle the case only in a Court in Turku, Finland according to the Finnish Law.
Those who are interested in an additional snowmobile safari, should ask us for an offer depending on the length of the safari and size of the group, a possible extra hotel accommodation and return transfer.
We are looking forward to see you in Tahko and enjoy an unforgettable training with you.
With kind regards, Aaltonen Motorsport
