The Thrill of the Track: Father’s Day Celebrations at Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake

June 18, 2023,
Hangzhou at West Lake, China

This Father’s Day, Four Seasons Hotel Hangzhou at West Lake unveiled an extraordinary celebration for dads and kids alike. Car-lovers of all ages were invited on thrilling racetrack adventures, curated in partnership with Zhejiang Xingbaohang Automobile Co. Ltd., the Mercedes-AMG & Maybach Customization Center in Hangzhou.

“Automobiles are the ultimate toys, beloved by fathers as well as children. And what better occasion than Father’s Day to celebrate and share the joy of driving a great car?” says General Manager Michael Branham.

The high-speed experiences hosted by the Hotel were received with great enthusiasm and enjoyment. Participants not only enjoyed an adrenaline-fuelled adventure but also created the memories of a lifetime with their families.

One of the experiences launched on Father’s Day was the West Lake Grand Prix at Four Seasons, which will continue to be available at the Hotel all through summer. This delightful kids’ activity is complimentary for in-house guests.

Mercedes-AMG G63 and AMG GT50 Test Drive Experience. Car-loving dads were treated to an unforgettable test drive along West Lake, known as “Heaven on Earth” for its stunning lake and mountain views.

With two extraordinary Mercedes cars to choose from, drivers were able to experience high-performance features such as powerful and stable acceleration, excellent handling and suspension tuning, and brilliant braking performance. All test drivers also received a “Charity Journey Blind Box” surprise gift.

West Lake Grand Prix at Four Seasons. Designed for kids to discover the thrill of being on a racetrack, this fun-filled experience features special Mercedes cars for young drivers. Replicated according to vehicle data ratios, these electric cars come with a stylish cascade grille and are perfect for a dynamic driving style. As kids take the wheel and zip through colourful checkered flags, they experience the magical feeling of being racing champions.

It’s an engaging activity that not only allows kids to build their confidence and skills, but also creates a precious opportunity for dads (and moms) to pass on their love of driving to the next generation.

Suitable for ages 3 and above, the West Lake Grand Prix at Four Seasons will be held regularly all through summer and is available on a complimentary basis for in-house guests.

Father’s Day Brunch. Along with racetrack experiences, the Hotel treated fathers and their loved ones to an exquisite culinary spread by Chef Wilson. Crafted with prized ingredients such as nine-year-old kaluga caviar and hand-carved 5J Iberico de Bellota ham, the Father’s Day brunch delighted dads with discerning palates. Also on offer were hearty all-time favourites such as charcoal-grilled Florence style wagyu T-bone steak and roasted USDA beef prime rib eye, along with a wide selection of seafood, salads and sushi for those who preferred to eat light and healthy.

Chef Wilson and his team also curated special snacks for the West Lake Grand Prix. Young drivers and their proud parents enjoyed a delicious array of treats, including homemade chocolate cigars, gelato, ice cream, fresh fruits and juices.
