Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines! If exhilaration is your forte, you’ll love this incredible experiential package. Rally car racers are without a doubt, some of the best racing and stunt car drivers in the world. Rain, sleet, snow, rocks, and trees are no match for their skills. As you learn to rally drive from some of the best pro racers out there, your heart rate will increase just as fast as your skill and confidence behind the wheel.

There are no oval, Indy-style race tracks here and no pace cars to get in your way. Just pure, unadulterated fun as you put the pedal to the metal. During this two day, hair raising experience, you’ll learn to left-foot break, j-turn, pull a reverse 180 and pendulum turn during your one-on-one instructional. Once you’ve mastered the basics and can slide around a slalom course with complete precision, you’ll get the opportunity to test your limits during a group rally competition. Afterwards, there’s an award ceremony for participants.

Rally racing vehicles and helmets are all provided of course, as well as a professional photo and video coverage. A two night stay at a luxury resort is also included along with breakfast, lunch and dinner both days. Choose the “briter” option and enjoy your flight from New York by private plane as well as a sports massage at the hotel.

Somewhere deep inside most all of us, there’s still that kid inside, yearning to get out! That special urge we feel that takes us back to summer camp with our best friend, horseback riding, canoeing, doing jumping jacks and eating s’mores…oh, the s’mores! Somehow, exercising was more like a game then, instead of the workout that it is today, and we smiled when we did it. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get that feeling back again and a little of that energy too? Well guess what, now you can!

Together, you’ll run around Connecticut farmland doing fun fitness circuits and all those things like you did when you were a kid, including hiking, horseback riding, drum pounding, canoeing and kayaking. There’s also a blowout dance party and partner yoga that will laugh the stress right out of you.

During your two-night stay at the Winvian Resort & Spa, you’ll camp out in one of their luxury cottages and your meals will be prepared by resident Chef Chris Eddy.
