Group Driving Events
At Ultimate Drives we arrange group driving tours and events across Europe, combining the best roads and latest generation cars with the best sights, activities and tastes along the way. We understand a single type of event doesn’t fit all. Therefore we provide a wide range of options based on your group's needs or motivation - from Supercar Test Events, to Scenic Drives or Adventure Tours. These can be organised as an all-inclusive package including event planning, cars, hotels and support team, or simply as a one day driving experience with cars and guides as part of a wider event / meeting itinerary already in place.
Below is a short summary with examples describing the type of events we can arrange.
TOP GEAR STYLE 'TEST EVENTS'
Here, the focus is on the cars – during the course of the event everyone has the chance to drive a range of the latest high performance or supercars. For groups with a passion for cars, these packages work perfectly. Think of these events as a 'Top Gear' group test, all participants test all cars, and we score at the end. It's even possible to create a 'Top Gear style' magazine after the event.
Example – an all-inclusive 4 night test event in the Alps with 6 supercars, 12 persons, over three days, all drivers test all cars, with a Top Gear style review / scoring at the end. Prices from around 5000EUR per participant, group size typically 10 – 18 PAX
DESTINATION / SCENIC DRIVES
Here the focus is on the destination, combining the drives with local sights and activities. For example, a tour through the Swiss Alps with a visit to / hike on a glacier or a tour through Tuscany’s Val d’Orcia with a cooking class at a local farm. Scenic drives can be combined with high performance cars. However we also offer a wide range of other 'fun' cars, such as Mini Cooper Convertibles, BMW 4 Series Cabriolets. We can provide cars and styles to suit all tastes and budgets.
Example – an all-inclusive 4 night scenic driving tour through the Swiss Alps in the latest generation Mini Cooper S Cabriolet with a 1 day visit to / hike on the Aletsch Glacier on the middle day. Prices from around 2000 EUR per participant. Group size 10-20PAX.
ADVENTURE TOURS & TEAM BUILDING
Here, the focus is on an adventure drive into a remote destination, often combined with team building activities
Example – a 3 night Range Rover adventure into the Scottish Highlands, with afternoon activities on each day of driving – for example fly fishing, shooting or team building. Prices from around 2500 EUR per participant. Group size 10-20PAX.
1 DAY EXPERIENCES FOR MEETINGS & EVENTS & SPECIAL OCCASSIONS
Where you have already planned a meeting, event or convention and you are looking for an activity as part of the overall program, we offer possibilities in several of the leading event destinations. The concept here is a one day experience in amazing cars on totally unique scenic routes in the surrounding region.
Example – Supercar drives in the Alps Maritimes / National Park Verdon, behind the Cote d’Azur – take 15 of the latest supercars, loop up / around the beautiful National Park Verdon, then returning back to the coast. Group size up to 60PAX (15 cars, 2 per car, 2 half day drives).
All events are professionally organised by our experienced Event Planners. Once on the ground the events are hosted by our professional Tour Guides. All of our routes have been driven / tested in advance to ensure suitability for groups and offer the best driving roads.
