The experience starts with a driver safety and technique briefing, followed by circuit demonstration laps in a performance vehicle, where you will learn the basic racing lines. You'll then take the wheel of the Formula F1000. Sitting just centimetres off the ground you'll feel the thunderous power as you shift through the gears on your 30 breathtaking laps of the track. You will also receive a high-speed passenger ride in a performance car to put the icing on the cake to the experience.

Tom who took me out of for the morning was very calm and reassuring, even after having a moment out on track! The car was great fun and the track is dedicated to the specific car so no other drivers to worry about!

Never drove a single seater before so I was a bit nervous. However Rob’s training beforehand allowed me to have the best time!

This car is aggressive, and really gives you an indication of how physical single seater racing is. I did the 30 lap experience, and by the end of it I was completely worn out. The severity of the experience is extreme, like being in control of your own roller coaster. I would highly recommend this if you are an F1 fan, as it has given me a new found respect in what gladiators they really are.
