Why buy from us?
Experience the rush of driving a single seater race car with our Formula Renault Blast package. These Formula Renault 2000 cars are similar to those driven by many F1 stars including Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen, so you can be sure you’re following in the footsteps of motor racing greats.
Upon arrival, an expert instructor will welcome you and give you a full briefing of what to expect, with full safety measures accounted for so you can focus on relaxing and enjoying the day. After kitting up, you’ll start with an initial lap following a pace car to find the optimum race line.
Then the pace car pulls in, and it’s time for you to head off for five more unaccompanied laps around the track, to properly experience the thrill of a carbon-fibre, single seater race car complete with racing slicks and full aerodynamics. For a total of 6 laps, you’ve got a great driving day out for racing enthusiasts everywhere.
