What is a Driving Experience?
A driving experience can be whatever you want it to be. A gift for a family friend, partner or loved one.
A unique present for a birthday, Christmas or any other special occasion. The opportunity to turn your dream of driving a supercar into reality. A bucket list fulfilling day spent learning to drift or a heart-pumping session learning what’s what with rally cars. It can be anything and everything, and with our huge range of packages, it can be different every time.
Drive a Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari 458, Audi R8 and many more of the worlds fastest and most sought after supercars. Put your foot down at the home of British motor racing with a Silverstone driving experience, or visit one of many top racing venues on offer in the UK including Brands Hatch Circuit and Donington Park.
As well as purpose-built tracks like Hooton Park near Ellesmere Port, supercar experiences run at a number of airfields and converted MoD sites such Bovingdon Airfield in Hertfordshire, Prestwold Hall in Leicestershire and North Weald Airfield in Essex.
If the prospect of a Lamborghini track day doesn’t get your heart racing, take things to the next level with a race car experience. We offer a number of packages that get you out on the tarmac in real racing thoroughbreds like the Ferrari 458 Challenge, Radical SR5 and McLaren MP4 12C GT3. These machines were built with performance and speed in mind, and that’s something you’ll very quickly find out for yourself.
Supercars and race cars, not your thing? Try your hand at a rally driving experience. We work with a number of established rally schools with locations around London, Northamptonshire and Essex. All of which boast a highly skilled roster of professional instructors that’ll have you kicking up mud around a rally stage in next to no time.
Learn to drift at a drifting course near you, with drifting experiences available in Birmingham, Hampshire and Oxfordshire. You’ll go from novice to pro and competing in drift championships quicker than you can drop the clutch to get those tyres smoking. The drift schools we work with use specially modified drift cars like the Lexus IS200, making it easier to get sideways and learn the techniques needed to sustain a drift.
For those looking to do something a bit different, and at a slower pace, our lorry driving experiences are perfect for you. Hop in the cab of an HGV and see the road from an entirely new perspective.
We have a selection of supercar experiences for juniors, meaning you don’t have to be over 17 with a driving licence to get in on the action. We also offer young driver lessons with professional, qualified instructors at a huge number of locations in the UK. These driving lessons take place in dual controlled cars and are designed to give those under the age of 17 a head start before they learn for real and take their driving test.
Who can do a Driving Experience?
Adult track day and car experience days are generally available to anyone over the age of 17, with a full UK driving licence or international equivalent. There are exceptions, with some venues and experience providers catering for non-licence holders. So if you’ve just passed your test and want to experience speed in a safe and controlled environment, without having to worry about your black box, a trackday experience is for you.
Junior driving experiences and kids driving days are generally available for young drivers between 10 and 17, although some providers require children to be between 11 or 12 and 17. There are also minimum height requirements for junior drives. All of this information is available on each individual package, so double check before purchasing.
For kids 6 and over, we offer a great range of high speed passenger rides in supercars, movie cars, classic cars and even monster trucks, meaning they don’t have to miss out.
