A fleet of HSVs, an expert team of instructors… and ice?

0 min read

HSV have always had a strong relationship with their customers, and as the weather heats up in Australia, we look back at one of HSV’s cooler activities.

Deep in the mountains of the southern island of New Zealand lies the Southern Hemisphere Proving Ground (SHPG). The SHPG is a privately owned 400ha winter automotive testing facility. It provides auto companies around the world first class facilities to test new models and technologies during the northern hemisphere summer.

It’s also the site where you can slide a big roaring V8 HSV around on the snow and ice. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s known as the HSV Ice Drive Experience.

HSV offer this amazing experience every winter to a strictly limited number of HSV enthusiasts, picked from a pool of people who have previously registered their interest.

The package includes a full day of ridiculous, heart racing, stupid grin inducing fun with 12 vehicles, 13 expert instructors, 2 nights accommodation in Queenstown and a HSV Ice Drive Experience gift pack.
