Woman at the Wheel

Here at Winvian Farm, we’re always happy to point our beloved guests to the many fantastic destinations in our greater neighborhood here in Northwest Connecticut’s Litchfield Hills. And we’re especially excited to offer a special package this year in which we partner with one of those well-known destinations to help women gain confidence and reach for new heights

We’re talking about our Women at the Wheel Driving Experience, which gives you the opportunity to slip into the driver’s seat and experience firsthand the thrill of a high-speed racing circuit. Our partner? Well, naturally, the nationally renowned racetrack just a stone’s throw from our resort: Lime Rock Park.

“Our mission for this program with Lime Rock Park is to present women with the opportunity to learn to empower their lives through learning one of the most challenging sports in the world,” Winvian Farm Managing Director Heather Smith says. “Truly one of control that will help lead to self-empowerment and determination in other aspects of life and making it an equal world for women.”

Our Women at the Wheel Driving Experience is a pretty one-of-a-kind opportunity, and we were happy to see it profiled recently in The Chicago Tribune. Let’s run down the basics of the offer!

A Women’s Empowerment Weekend at Winvian Farm & Lime Rock Park

Book the Women at the Wheel Driving Experience on the available weekends between April and November 2018, and you’ll receive two nights of accommodations for two at the Winvian Farm cottage of your choice, embellished by a bottle of champagne and a three-course dinner for two at our on-site restaurant.

But that’s simply the luxurious backdrop to the main event: your thrilling adventure behind the wheel on the racetrack at Lime Rock Park! Our package gives you the unique setup of a half-day private training session here (either morning or afternoon) under the on-the-go tutelage of a professional driving instructor. You can choose your revved-up classroom: either Lime Rock’s easy infield course or the harder road course. And you can also decide between experiencing the course in your vehicle or in Lime Rock’s own race-tuned model.

It’ll be an unforgettable experience, not least as your introduction to racecar-driving goes down on such a legendary track: site of many notable races, including the famous 1959 Formula Libre that helped launch modern American road racing.
