Not for the faint hearted: our scariest driving experiences

Not for the faint hearted: our scariest driving experiences - News

Beware the full moon, and the spine chilling roar of an engine, for out on the circuit track, monsters of the four wheeled variety are unleashed in a reign of terror… OK, not quite. But at Driving Experience this Halloween, we have a selection of driving day packages which are only for the most fearless and are sure to give you a scare that no horror movie can match. Read on - if you dare of course…

  • Ariel Atom Blast and Thrill (from £45, nationwide venues)

It’s hard to explain what the experience of driving or riding an Ariel Atom is like unless you’ve been in one yourself. So let’s imagine the most powerful supercar you’ve ever been in. Now double, even triple that in terms of power and performance. To say you need to buckle in for this one would be an understatement.

Unsurprisingly given it’s university kit car project origins, the Atom lacks much of the hi-tech gadgetry and comfort of your Ferraris and Aston Martins in design. But this simplicity is part of what makes it such an uninhibited beast to drive, as free of these extra frills, it comes into its aerodynamic own, and requires a driver of supreme skill and expertise to tame it.

If you think that you fit this bill, the Atom is yours to wrestle to the wheel of at venues including Bicester Heritage Centre in Oxfordshire and Perranporth Circuit in Cornwall from as little as £45.

  • Ultimate Stunt Driving Experience Half Day (£249, Silverstone)

Getting to learn some of the most hair-raising of stunts is the order of the day on this most extreme of driving experience packages. A team of professional stunt drivers will be on hand at this unique half day, helping you get to grips with handbrake parallel parking, executing the perfect J turn and drifting.

And this is all before you take on the ultra challenging Slalom time trial course in an attempt to become the prize Stunt Driver of the day. Will you be able to hold your nerve and keep your cool whilst attempting to pull off driving that would put Evil Knievel to shame?

This fantastic Stunt Driving package is available at a specially prepared stunt course at the historic Silverstone Circuit, the home of the F1 British Grand Prix.

  • Big Boys Toys Monster Truck Driving (£230, Blacklands Farm)

There’s no deadlier demon to unleash when it comes to driving experiences, than that when climbing into the cabin of a supersized Monster Truck like ‘Grizzly’. Grizzly by both name and nature, this no holds barred driving day package at our Blacklands Farm venue in Sussex will satiate the appetite of those petrolheads who like things big and bold.

Powered on a terrifying 7.5 litre V8 engine, with 5ft 5” high tyres, this really is the big bad wolf of the Monster Truck world, as you’ll discover as you’re strapped into the roll cage cabin and it crushes two saloon cars in its warp and weft out on the Rallykart trial course.

There is also another Monster Truck available on this package, a Toyota hilux called Black Ice, with 44” Ground Hawg tyres that you’ll get to take out prior to your turn in Grizzly on a Green Lane course over a variety of wet and dry terrains.
