Your Racing Car Driving Experience
Of all our experience day packages we offer on Driving Experience, our Racing Car experience, as the saying goes, does exactly what it says on the tin. It’s a series of laps around a race track or circuit track in a car that’s been specifically tailored to meet the demands of racing and competing on the track.
Your day will always begin with a full safety briefing from one of our professionally trained instructors, helping you to get to grips with on-track safety, optimal driving techniques and track etiquette, so that you’re in the best position possible to get behind the wheel.
A few of our day packages include sighting laps, a practical way for you to get a view of the circuit track and all its challenges from the passenger seat under the guidance of your instructor - there may even be a high speed lap for them to show you what these powerful machines can really do.
Then it’s time for you to demonstrate what you can do. You’ll do several laps under the guidance of your instructor, to help you build your confidence and increase your speed safely. Once that’s mastered, you can really feel the turbo charged suspension and steering that makes driving a race car around the track an unmatchable driving experience.
Racing Cars and Tracks for Driving Experiences
All of the models on our Racing Car Driving Experiences really are the genuine article. Grand Prix specced single seaters, cup versions of their retail equivalent to cars that will never be on the public roads, these are built for speed, performance and the ride of your life.
The Ferrari 458 Challenge is a perfect example of this, as it is one of the competing vehicles in Ferrari Challenge, their single series racing championship. It’s also true of the McLaren MP4-12C GT3, a competitor in both the FIA Group GT3 series and the FIA GT1 World Championship. Then there’s the Renault 2000, used in the Formula Renault series that was a one time competition for a nascent Lewis Hamilton.
We offer this experience package at a variety of race track and circuit track locations across the country, most of which are within easy access of major city centres - Blyton Park near Sheffield, Hull and Leeds, Three Sisters near Manchester and Liverpool, and Bovingdon Airfield and Dunsfold Park - the site of Top Gear’s famous test track - near London.

Essential Booking Information for Racing Car Driving Experiences
If you buy an open gift voucher for a Racing Car package, the standard validity period to use the voucher is 10 months. However, please make sure you check this first, as some Racing Car vouchers and special offers may have a shorter or longer validity.
If you are booking directly onto a date for a driving experience, please note that you are making a booking request, and the date and time that you choose will still be subject to availability.
We usually confirm bookings within 48 hours, but we ask that you do not make any arrangements in conjunction with your booking request until you have received your final confirmation email. The receipt we send you after making a booking request is not your confirmation.
Other important things to consider when purchasing Racing Car driving experiences are that the driver meets all requirements in terms of age, weight, height and driving licence. These requirements are unique to each driving experience, so please ensure you have read the important information thoroughly.
If an experience is for junior drivers only, we will usually mention this in the name of the package, but not in all cases. If you place a booking for a driving experience, and the driver doesn’t meet the requirements on the day, then it is unlikely they will be able to drive the vehicle.
