One thing that we have continually prided ourselves on here at Driving Experience is that, wherever you're based in the UK, we're always sure to have a fantastic driving experience or experience day package to enjoy at a venue near you. So we thought we'd shine a light on some of the best that we offer in each region of the country. And hey, it may just give you a bit of inspiration for what you decide to get behind the wheel of next…
One for those with a keen interest in the World Rally Championship, this great value Rally Driving experience is hosted at both Blyton Park in Leicestershire and Sandtoft Airfield in North Lincolnshire, and offers those with their eyes on becoming the next Colin McRae or Sébastien Loeb the chance to enjoy driving two awesome rally spec motors, from a choice of either the Ford Mk1 Escort RS, Subaru Impreza WRX STi and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X. You'll get to drive both of your chosen rally cars for 3 miles each, all under the guidance and support of an expert rally instructor.
Hosted at the renowned Snetterton Circuit in Norfolk, the McLaren 720s is our most high spec model from the British performance car giant that has been the power and precision behind numerous motorsport winning cars for the likes of Formula 1, the FIA GT1 World Championship and much more besides. And being as it takes place at a dedicated racing circuit, it's absolutely the best place to feel the performance this stunning powerhouse of British supercars offers, with its M840T 4 litre Twin Turbo V8 engine and lightning quick acceleration from 0 - 60 mph in under 3 seconds. You'll get to enjoy a taste of driving the 720s for 3 miles under your expert instructor's tutelage, and will also take home a driving certificate as a lasting reminder of your day!
For those F1 fanatics that want even the smallest taste of the excitement and adrenaline rush that the likes of Max Verstappen and Lando Norris experience, this driving experience in the single seater Formula Renault 2000 at the famous "Nürburgring of the North", Three Sisters Circuit in Wigan, will be the perfect introduction. Your instructor at the venue will welcome you on the day, and take you through a full safety briefing and expectations for what to look out for on the circuit layout. After you've kitted up and had your familiarisation lap behind the pace car, they'll pull out as you get to show off what you can do over 5 unaccompanied laps!
This is one heavy duty driving experience day that's guaranteed to be good craic, as they say in these parts! For this is a "parful" chance to climb into the cabin of an all American Truck at Balmoral Park in Lisburn. The choice of which truck you drive is either a Kenworth W900L, that is a visual byword for Stateside haulage, or the all new, fully automatic Ford F650 Super Duty Pick Up truck. For less than £70, you'll get approximately 10 minutes' driving time one-to-one at the wheel of your truck, as you drive and manoeuvre it around a specially laid out short course.
Over at Lochgelly Raceway in Fife is our most exclusive Supercar Platinum Thrill package, with the opportunity to drive your choice from our platinum fleet of turbocharged marques. The models available include the galloping thoroughbred that is the Ferrari 458 Italia, the roaring beast that is the Lamborghini Huracan, the God-Zilla of the JDM car world in the Nissan GTR, and the forward thinking, hybrid powered BMW i8, amongst many others. You'll definitely get the most out of your time behind the wheel of your chosen platinum set of wheels - 6 miles to be exact - and you'll be presented with a commemorative driving certificate before you head home too.
Recently launched over at Bovingdon Airfield in Hertfordshire, which is just over an hour outside of Central London, this all new Drifting Experience will see you get to take on the clash of the drifting titans and see what's the true king of burning some serious rubber when driving sideways! An expert drifting instructor will offer you extensive coaching and tuition throughout the day, particularly on the four sighting laps you'll receive (including a sideways high speed passenger ride with the instructor at the wheel), before you swap over and take the driver's seat to navigate a custom street derived course with a series of Japanese Zen Garden roundabouts in both the Nissan 350z and BMW E90 Drift Taxi for four drift laps each!
Since our All Star Driving Experiences were launched in November last year - and which are hosted at Perranporth Airfield in Cornwall and Castle Combe Circuit in Wiltshire - they have quickly become some of the most popular driving day packages we've ever had available to book here on Driving Experience. And little wonder really; because both this double experience, and the single and triple variants offer you the opportunity to pick and mix from pretty much our entire fleet to drive - supercars, classic cars, muscle cars, performance cars, movie cars, trucks. There's no end to the combinations you can create, plus a high speed passenger ride in a performance saloon car will round off the experience in style - and all for less than £100 to boot!
Since the first of the Fast and Furious films made their big screen debut back in 2001, they have quickly attracted a devoted and loyal following with both movie goers and performance car fanatics alike. And over at Llanbedr Airfield in the stunning Snowdonia National Park in the north west corner of Wales, this absolutely 'lush' opportunity to drive two of the most instantly recognisable cars from the films, including the Nissan Skyline R34, Toyota Supra, Chevrolet Camaro SS and Dodge "Dom's" Charger are available for you to get behind the wheel on for 6 miles each - all with a high speed passenger ride included to finish off a day that's best enjoyed by those who live their life a quarter mile at a time!
Whichever side of the "Who produced the best vintage cars" debate you sit on, this fantastic package hosted at both Tockwith Driving Centre and Elvington Airfield in Yorkshire will let you drive your choice of two classic British and American motors for 3 miles each. The Brit selections are represented by the sleek and timeless Jaguar E-Type and the small but mighty 1968 Mini Cooper S, whilst batting for our Stateside friends across the pond are the AC Cobra and the Ford GT 40 to name but several. You may even discover a new icon that becomes an instant favourite as a result!
