Experience fill blown racing in the private atmosphere of Silverstone with specialist Audi branded equipment tailored to one’s size. There is even the opportunity to have access to the British Racing Drivers Club for a gourmet lunch and taught off the track by the legendary Allan Mcnish and specialist race team. At the end of the day the person will receive a giveaway helmet signed by the Mcnish himself, golden branded helmet and footage of the day.

Ice Driving

For the ultimate in car experiences and take off in a VW Golf and Porsche Carrera on frozen lakes in Sweden. Imagine this once-in-a-lifetime thrill of driving flat out on a frozen lake in the middle of Scandinavia – SIDEWAYS! There will be a team of experienced ice and snow driving instructors to guide one on the snow and ice, keeping control of the car. From arrival to departure one will receive first-class hospitality in a purpose designed lodge, with a restaurant offering exceptional dining with views over the valley and a menu offering both Swedish and local specialities such as Moose, Deer and Trout.

Rally Finland

Arrive in Finland and be whisked north to a custom designed rally track on a frozen lake! This is home to 4 x Rally champion legend Tommi Mäkinen, where one will be given tuition by first hand by Tommi and learn the skills associated with becoming what many consider to be the most adrenaline fuelled of all motorsports.

Ultimate Track Days
Whether in the principal UK circuits and legendary overseas destinations such as; Le Mans, Spa Francorchamps and the infamous Nürburgring Nordschleife, Quintessentially Escape provide some exhilarating track days. The current instructor squad includes some of Europe’s most respected and talented drivers some of whom will always be on hand to offer help and advice to anyone new to track driving and those looking to improve.

Supercar Tour

Alongside the stunning lakes and up into The Dolomites in Europe is only a fraction of what someone can see on the supercar tour in June 2012 with Quintessentially Escape. People will stay at some fantastic spa hotels, all members of The Leading Hotels of The World, starting on the West side of Austria and winding our way up to some of the great passes in The Alps. The tour then takes everyone to the shores of Lake Worthersee and take a well-earned day-off at the 5* castle hotel alongside the lake.

On the final day of the tour, people will get the chance to drive through the beautiful Austrian countryside and across to the newly opened Kempinski Hotel on the banks of the Danube in Bratislava. Everyone can enjoy some of Europe’s finest Michelin Star meals along the way all in the company of the experienced Club GT Events crew. This year Quintessentially Escape is planning for a helicopter flight mid-week in The Dolomites and dinner on top of a mountain another. This is too good to miss out on.
