Breaking Away

The BMW xDrive Experience allows you to experience driving like you’ve never experienced it before.

BMW4

Participants meet in Pec pod Sněžkou and have the opportunity to test BMWs equipped with the xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive. In addition to riding along regular roads, part of the ride is on a closed track at one of the nearby airports.

During the journey the BMW product experts share their knowledge about BMW cars, technologies and the driving attributes.

Driving exercises are tailored to the particular model and enable the participants to improve their driving capability under extreme conditions.

The whole experience takes approximately three hours and the winner will be invited to join the BMW team for lunch or dinner.

You will also win an experience of a different kind as Kempinski High Tatras has yet again generously donated a luxurious break for two at the spectacular Grand Hotel High Tatras in Slovakia.

HALADA carefully and professionally selects only the best cultured pearls, which they then highlight with refined design. Each design embodies both a fascination with the ocean and the power of human creativity.

Eric Halada says “Just as ocean currents shape objects into varied forms, so the hands of experienced goldsmiths created the HALADA Reef Collection, with delicate pearls set into irregularly shaped matt and glossy pink gold, further enhanced by freshwater pearls in pastel pink tones.”

 Product details:

  • Freshwater Pearl 8,5-9mm
  • 5 Brilliants 0,025 Carat TW-si
  • 18 Carat Rosegold

The HALADA Reef ring will be on display in the live auction at the 2016 Charity Gala. #LIVE16
