RACING CAR DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Want to feel like Lewis Hamilton and experience real downforce? Now you can on the fastest race circuit in the UK.

You don´t so much sit in a Formula Renault as get physically attached to the car. Tightly strapped into the cockpit, you become part of the car. Every bump, camber and vibration is transmitted through the driver and you know and feel exactly what is happening with the slick tyres and wings giving razor sharp responses.

BRIEFING:

Our unique driving experience briefing details the important information you need to know before getting behind the wheel and heading out on track: circuit layout, racing line, turn in, apex, exit, braking, throttle control, driving Position, steering and pedal control, gear change, paddle shift, chassis dynamics weight transfer, oversteer, understeer and overtaking and flag signals

INSTRUCTOR DEMONSTRATION:

We use the brilliant Porsche Cayman for this element of the experience - The best sports car on the market. Our advanced ARDS qualified race instructors will help guests learn the circuit and get the most out of the car and enjoy their time on track (2 laps)

YOUR TURN TO DRIVE THE PORSCHE CAYMAN:

Three laps driving the Porsche Cayman. Nowhere else in the UK will you drive such an expensive and new car as your introduction to a driving experience. With 3 laps behind the wheel you?ll not only have a huge smile on your face but be ready to take on the next car, no doubt feeling like the next Lewis Hamilton (3 laps)

YOUR TURN TO DRIVE THE FORMULA RENAULT RACING CAR:

Watching Formula 1 will never be the same again after you´ve experienced driving a proper single seat racing car on a proper race circuit. Many of the current crop of F1 drivers have raced in this formula with Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton both winning the UK series. Once seated with the racing straps fitted around you the engine bursts into life you´ll feel like a Grand Prix is about to start. Once up to speed, everything clicks into place as you and the car become one, getting quicker every lap, the car responding instantly. A truly unique experience and one that will be remembered (5 laps)

HIGH SPEED PASSENGER RIDE IN OCTAVIA VRS:

Hold on tight as our resident Stig takes you out for the white knuckle ride of your life. Experiencing a car at its full potential with a professional racing driver at the wheel. It´s simply incredible! (1 lap)
