You could earn the chance to drive a Continental GT3-R on ice

Fancy driving a £250,000 Bentley Continental GT3-R – on ice? That's the €11,340 prize – in fact there are two up for grabs – in a seasonal competition from the luxury car maker.

But it's also a fundraiser for the Care2Save, the charity that grew out of the fundraising team at St Luke's Hospice, in Winsford, Cheshire, which is not far from Bentley's headquarters in Crewe .

The charity works to help people around the world in need of palliative and hospice care.

Entries to the Bentley competition are £1 each, with no limit on how many times you can enter, with all proceeds going to Care2Save. On offer are two spaces on Bentley's Power On Ice – a driving experience on the lakes of northern Finland in February.

The winners will get the first-ever chance to drive the new Continental GT3-R, Bentley's most dynamic and powerful luxury road car, on ice. During the four-day adventure, they will also be able to drive a range of Bentley cars. You can enter the competition – which runs until 8 January 2015 – at
