Making Trails in the Bentley Bentayga Off Road

 

During our recent track day Bentley was gracious enough to lend two well appointed Bentayga’s for the event. Even though they knew what we had planned for the day, they were gracious enough to send them out for us to use. While planning the track day we asked the staff at Brainerd International Raceway if they could construct an off-road course. They enthusiastically organized something special for our guests that wasn’t nothing short of amazing. The course they designed for us really had a good mix of elements to test the Bentayga and the optional All-Terrain specifications. The course started on a long hard packed dirt road, common in the north woods, while it didn’t challenge the Bentayga it was representative of what most people will encounter in Minnesota.

Further down the road we found deep sand which really showed off the ability of the terrain management’s sand mode, allowing us to dig through the ever changing conditions as the day went on. To show off how special the Bentley’s W12 engine was, we had two choices when it came to the inclines. One was a slow speed hard packed uneven terrain requiring a massive amount of torque. The other was a steep, loose sand trail requiring the speed that the 600 horsepower allows you to put to the ground. After taking customers around our course we had one more surprise for our passengers. We thought after showing the off road prowess we might as well show what this 5,400lb SUV could do from a dead stop to 60mph. Spoiler Alert: It’s 4 seconds flat

Monster Jam MPLS – Saturday – December 10th

I’ve been told I’m not allowed to swear in the newsletter, but this is the bleeping Monster Jam COMING BACK TO MINNESOTA!! “KIDS SEATS ARE STILL JUST $5!!” which might not be the case anymore, but “YOU CAN PAY FOR THE ENTIRE SEAT, BUT YOU’LL ONLY NEED THE EDGE” stays this time around. From what we’ve seen tickets start around $40 and go up to well over a hundred. We want to make sure to tell you about this one well in advance because you should be as excited as we are. Is Bigfoot still a thing?!?

Adult Night at the Zoo – Thursday, August 18th

13680693_10154276214630281_9216852424303448190_n

Sure it’s great to take the kids to the Minnesota Zoo and watch them experience all the animals, but half the time they are just running away and you aren’t able to see anything for yourself. Well, now is your chance to see all the animals during adult night at the zoo. You can even grab a drink and some food while you’re there and experience a special keeper talk at 6:30 & 7:30 p.m. at the Lakeside Terrace about different animals.

Victoria Classic Car Night – Wednesday, August 3rd

 victoria

This Wednesday night hundreds of classic cars will descend on downtown Victoria, Minnesota, for Victoria Classic Car Night. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – this show is a great reason to get out during the middle of the week and see an eclectic mix of cars that you might not see at your typical show. It’s looking like it will be a hot one weather wise, so I recommend bringing a convertible.

Flying Legends of Victory Tour – July 26th through July 31st

flying_legends_poster_0_1468501022

Having spent my fair share of time breaking (I really have a knack for it) and subsequently repairing vintage vehicles, I’m always a bit baffled at how airplanes exist. Particularly vintage airplanes. With this in mind, it is really quite remarkable to get up close to legendary warplanes and see their inner mechanical workings. The Flying Legends of Victory Tour provides such an opportunity and if you’re brave enough to take to the skies in a vintage plane they’ll even take you for a ride in a B-17 Flying Fortress.

 

Thursday Night Car Show at the Minnetonka Drive-In – Thursday, July 28th

minnetonka drive-in

If you find a refreshing absence of activity in your Thursday night family calendar I’d recommend swinging down to the Minnetonka Drive-In for its Thursday night car show. It’s a great opportunity to go for a cruise around Lake Minnetonka, enjoy some classic drive-in food and explore an eclectic mix of vintage rides. The only thing that would make it better is a classic ride of your own. Fortunately, we have 33 you can choose from. We’ll even buy your dinner if you decide to bring one of our cars down.

 

Loring Park Art Festval – Saturday, July 30th and Sunday, July 31st


Loring

If you’ve not yet got your fix of summer art festivals you should consider checking out the Loring Park Art Festival this weekend. Expect a selection of artistic creations from over 140 artists, local food vendors supplying your favorite fair food and an absolutely great view of the city. 

German Grand Prix Viewing Party – Sunday, July 31st


German Grand Prix

Dust off your lederhosen and consider joining us for our German Grand Prix live screening hosted at Morrie’s Luxury Auto Sunday morning. Since the race starts bright and early at 7am we’ll hold off on the Sauerkraut, but that doesn’t rule out German breakfast sausage does it? Or better yet maybe a little strudel?
