A highlight in the new Aston Martin’s “Art of Living” season is “Hokkaido On Ice”, an opportunity to experience a range of Aston Martin models against the spectacular backdrop of Japan’s northernmost island. Under the tutelage of expert drivers, guests will learn how to control a car in slippery conditions, pushing themselves and the cars to the limit. Further driving focused events are scheduled for 2018, including the wilds of Norway, starting with the breathtaking views of the famous Atlantic Ocean Road. A drive through the Scottish Highlands will take guests through rugged mountain ranges, stunning lochs and historic castles and, for those looking for the warmth of the sun, a trip to South Africa to cruise along the coastline close to Cape Town awaits.

For racing enthusiasts, imagine heading out to Barcelona ahead of the 2018 Formula One season to watch the new cars being put through their paces before the teams fly off to Melbourne, Australia, for the first race of the year. “Art of Living by Aston Martin” guests will have exclusive access to the Aston Martin Red Bull Racing garage and the chance to meet the F1TM drivers and team members as they prepare for the new season. For guests looking for some racing action, there is plenty to offer. Formula One fans can attend the most glamorous F1TM race of them all: the Monaco Grand Prix, where they will enjoy the highest levels of passion, drama and performance like never before.
