Driven by passion. Powered by “Elferspot Experience”
After years of matching up Porsche 911’s with new happy owners we have now finally taken the step to offer experiences to match the sheer passion and commitment between all the 911’s fans around the world. There are plenty of performance driving experiences on offer in the market but we at Elferspot have chosen only the best!
Spirit of Speed Arctic
Have you already attended mainstream winter trainings on near road tires? Then it is surely time for something entirely new! Why not instead experience the real deal, where you can push the cars to the limits? An entirely unique winter race training with specially prepared air-cooled Porsche 911’s. All cars fitted with real World Rally Championship Tires. A thrilling combination of real ice and rally tracks becoming the ideal playground to challenge yourself and “your” Porsche 911.
Spirit of Speed Arctic is a unique experience that reaches far beyond what is offered elsewhere. If what we already offer is still not enough, why not take Tom Kristensen as your personal coach! When did you last time get instructions from Mr. Le Mans himself? Common for all – learn to control a Porsche 911 on the limit but still having fun.
“With Spirit of Speed I want you to experience the spirit and passion that I have been so fortunate to experience myself during my racing life…”
“Perfect balance of luxury and excitement. Having been on many ice driving experiences I would urge anyone NOT to attempt to compare them with this. It’s an incredible and challenging driving program which will leave a lasting impression on both experienced and novice driver alike. Luxury food and accommodation and wonderful ambience. Incomparable!”
Spirit of Speed by Tom Kristensen
With a 9 times Le Mans winner behind the program, only the best is good enough.

Spirit of Speed – ARCTIC CONTROL
Experienced or first time on the ice? Don’t worry, we start out slow and finish fast. If you are inexperienced we will do a short introduction and then we aim for you to master the fine art of ice driving. Together with your instructor, you will define your perfect driving program with a combination of section training and full track driving to fit your individual skills and goals. Our unique intercom radio system makes communication with your instructor easy and comfortable.
Lots of driving time spiced up with our very special night-driving sessions are not to be missed, just like a tailor-made data acquisition system will add to our common aim to create the perfect drivers’ paradise.

It is all about speed and excitement under the careful eyes of Tom Kristensen! As during the Arctic Control program we aim for “driving heaven” but it does not stop here! We add the stopwatch, we let you rally through the forest on long hilly curvy tracks. Result is a real rally experience including pace notes – and you can race against your co-driver and the others in the group. To achieve this aim – we don’t just tell you how to drive a stage, we teach you how to drive it as fast a possible – and let you push to and over the limit.
