Tom Cruise has had a lot of driving experience. But this was his 1st time in a Formula One racing car. And as you can see from the video he managed to get up to top speeds of 181 mph. David Coulthard even said that if he kept up with the training he would be running really good lap times. Tom must be a bit of an adrenaline junkie, cause even after racing around the track he decided to go up in a helicopter and did a loop.
Unfortunately it is not possible to try out driving a real Formula One car ourselves. But you can still be at the heart of the action with one of our Grand Prix Packages.
When you go away on a short ski break, I am sure you would want to make the most of your time on the slopes and won’t want to be spending your time at A&E or recovering from bruising.
Recent news has been filled with reports on skiing accidents such as Michael Schumacher and Angela Merkel. Also if you have been watching Channel 4’s The Jump, you will also see that many of them spent more time falling than skiing!
As you know, there is always a factor of risk to skiing. Nevertheless we have some safety measures you can take to reduce your chance of injuries.
The most important tip is to prepare your body well in advance of your short ski break. There are a number of video’s and articles on the internet that will show how to do this best.
While in resort, it’s important to keep your energy levels up, so ensure you have a protein fueled breakfast in the morning. We would also suggest that you don’t drink to much the night before. It’s not advisable to go skiing if you are hung-over. When you do get on the slopes, take the first half an hour just warming up before building up to steeper runs. Throughout the day, ensure you have plenty of water to drink and make sure you stop for lunch.
Most accidents happen because of chairlifts and being in the wrong place. So be vigilant when you are near the lifts and when you are stopping. Ensure you stop at the side of a piste and never over the brow of a hill. Its also important to know you own skiing skills and don’t try to go outside your comfort zone.
