Why buy from us?
Here's a great chance for you and a loved one or friend to experience the rush of driving a single seater race car not once but twice with our Formula Renault Thrill for 2 package. These Formula Renault 2000 cars we offer to drive 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, and following sign on at the check-in desk, an expert instructor will welcome you both, 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.
Following a debrief with the instructor, the track is yours again for one more familiarisation lap and another five laps, before your partner for the day gets to experience the same sessions of laps around the track as you. A perfect driving day to double up on in more ways than one!
