Release Retreat driving course

Driving enthusiasts looking for a special winter break can take advantage of a new adventure package recently announced by Release: Private Retreat. The package features advanced winter driving courses in the resort of Lake Wanaka in the South Island.

Accommodation provider, Release: Private Retreat has teamed up with the Southern Hemisphere Proving Ground, a vehicle testing facility situated high on the Pisa Range above Lake Wanaka. On offer is a six night package that will allow guests to experience the buzz of driving on the challenging surfaces — snow and ice packed roads, under the instruction of professionals.

The training focuses on advancing driving capabilities and testing skills on a snow-packed autocross course behind the wheel of leading European marques. The next stage refines newly learned skills to an instinctual level to take on the advanced snow flat, ice handling track surfaces and exercises.

“Release is about unique, memorable experiences,” said Release’s co-founder Nick Frame. “We can tailor the ultimate winter holiday, whether it’s making the most of our amazing adventure activities or enjoying a gourmet dinner using world-class local ingredients. The winter driving courses offer a unique experience for a group of enthusiasts or for a corporate group.”

The “Experience Winter Driving” package also includes a personal in-house chef for a night. Other activities available while staying at Release include skiing or snowboarding at Lake Wanaka’s four ski resorts or heliskiing in the Southern Alps.

Nestled in native bush with views across Lake Wanaka to Treble Cone Ski Resort and the mountains of Mount Aspiring National Park, Release: Private Retreat is an architecturally-designed luxury retreat with a commitment to eco-friendly tourism practices.

Release accommodates six adults comfortably. Exclusive use of the retreat includes the full concierge service to arrange Release adventures, private chef or sommelier or any other details required.
