Pirelli holds Audi Ice Driving Experience
Earlier this month Pirelli held a Premium Ice Driving Experience; hosting YHI and selected customers to reward their Pirelli sales performance.
The unique experience included training with qualified instructors; learning how to navigate snow driving techniques at the purpose built Southern Hemisphere Proving Grounds, in the Cardrona Valley just outside of Queenstown, and the opportunity to test the Pirelli Sotto, Sotto 2 and Scorpion Winter tyres, specially created for snow and winter conditions; fitted to a range of the latest high performance Audi models.
We were guided through the basics of acceleration and braking, controlling and navigating over-steer and under-steer in snow conditions, before moving on to dynamic driving. The drifting and dynamic control provided the chance to experience the thrill of drifting in a snow slalom situation. The day’s activities finished up with timed laps, and a helicopter ride back to the airport providing views of the breathtaking Queenstown scenery.
