NORTHERN EXPOSURE Jaguar Land Rover launches an Ice Drive Experience at its Test Centre on the Arctic Circle in Swedish Lapland Take all your driving experience and unlearn it. Arjeplog in northern Sweden is frozen for half the year under snow and ice. Driving here means ice driving, and it’s like nothing else on Earth. To the locals, this surface is second nature. The metre-thick ice that covers the vast lakes that surround the town is carved into circuits to test the world’s toughest vehicles and most daring drivers. Jaguar Land Rover engineers come here to test the durability and capability of their vehicles in bracing temperatures as low as -50°C. The Ice Drive Experience 2017 is your chance to join them. Ice driving requires far greater throttle sensitivity than normal conditions. When you come into a corner, you should maintain steady throttle even as you begin to slide. Forget your panic reflex. Don’t touch the brakes. Then as you slide, you should counter-intuitively turn into the slide rather than away from it. As you will learn from the expert Jaguar Land Rover instructors over the course of your epic Ice Drive Experience, controlled driving on ice is a unique and exhilarating experience.
