Why Not Try Winter Sports on Wheels?


From 31 January to 13 February 2015, Opel will be hosting two- and three-day winter training events in Thomatal, Austria. The Insignia, Mokka, and Antara will be showcasing their cutting-edge all-wheel drive technology on the snow and ice in this idyllic Alpine setting. Participants will also have the chance to meet with dealers, media representatives, and VIPs, as well as Opel employees and customers at the events in St. Michael, Austria.

The third edition of Opel Winter Training promises exciting winter sport activities behind the wheel. A course has been set up that allow drivers to test the handling and driving dynamics of the vehicles. And lest we forget, there will be plenty of opportunity for drifting. A night-time drive in an SUV is also on the agenda. For the first time ever it is now possible to book a third training day as well. This includes a special mountain training session in the Insignia OPC along routes that are normally closed to traffic.

Approximately 400 participants from across Europe are expected to attend. Opel employees only have to pay €950 to attend the two-day event (normally €1,100). The price includes theoretical and practical driver training plus one night’s stay at the Eggerwirt wellness hotel in St. Michael (travel not included).
