Your Single Seater Driving Experience
No other car is more suited to a race track in quite the same way a single seater is. Now is your chance to jump into the cockpit of one of these speed demons, with Driving Experience’s awesome Single Seater Driving Experience package.
Whilst the dream of being an F1 racing car driver is still an unticked bucket list item for many, this experience day will let you get as close as possible to the feeling, the speed and acceleration that they can provide.
The models we have available, including the Formula Renault 2000 and Formula F1000, are very similar to the Formula 1 models, and obviously require a careful and controlled driver behind them, but under such hands will you have the best driving experience possible.
In the case of some of our single seaters, you can expect to reach record breaking speeds of 100 mph in less than five seconds. How’s that for super speed? No surprises then, that it’s the fastest single seater experience of its kind in the UK.
Locations for Single Seater Driving Experience
The variety of our race track and circuit track locations we have on our books at Driving Experience means this Single Seater day package is nearer to you than you might think.

Or if you’re down in the South of the country, Castle Coombe and Bovingdon Airfield are perfect venues for those motor enthusiasts in Wiltshire or Hertfordshire.

You can purchase an open 10 month gift voucher for this experience - a great gift idea for the Formula 1 fan in your life or a treat for yourself. Or you can pick an available date and time of your choice from our events calendar above.
Essential Booking Information for Single Seater Driving Experiences
There are two easy ways for you to purchase a Single Seater Driving Experience. You can either purchase one of our driving experience days as an open 10-month gift voucher or book directly onto an available date of your choice using our events calendar.
If you cannot see any dates on the voucher page, then simply e-mail or call us and our customer service team can give you the most up to date availability. If you wish to make a bespoke package, or are interested in making one of our driving experiences into a group event or corporate event, please contact us by going to our corporate days page and filling in our enquiry form.
If you buy an open gift voucher for a Single Seater package, the standard validity period to use the voucher is 10 months. However, please make sure you check this first, as some Single Seater 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 Single Seater 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 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.

In Profile: The Formula Renault 2000
Question for you: what do Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Räikkönen and Felipe Massa all have in common? Well, apart from the obvious, the Formula Renault 2000 was the single seater car they all started out their illustrious racing careers in. And if you fancy following in their footsteps, you can do so through Driving Experience’s Single Seater experience package.
It looks, handles and performs exactly as you’d expect a single seater would - and then some. With a 1600cc engine roaring out 190 bhp, it goes from a blistering 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds, maxing out a top speed of 150 mph. As you take it round many challenging straights and corners, you’ll finish your experience feeling ready to beat them all to pole position.
