Whether you're just looking into booking a supercar experience, or you've already booked one, if you're on this site then you've already imagined what it will be like when you hear those first rumbles of the engine of iconic supercars like the Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari California T, or the Aston Martin DB9.
Booking a supercar driving experience promises an unforgettable journey into the world of automotive dreams. However, from the moment you arrive at the track to the heart-pounding moments behind the wheel, there is a lot that you will need to take in, so we thought we would guide you through some key points.
Important Note: All tracks are different, but this blog covers a selection of main points that are present at most locations. It is always important that you listen carefully to the team upon your arrival and follow any instructions and directives they give you, to ensure your day runs as smoothly and safely as possible.
The excitement begins the moment you step onto the site. Before you unleash the raw power of these incredible machines, there are a few important steps to follow.
Firstly, don't forget to bring your driving licence. This is a mandatory requirement unless you have booked a No Licence Required or Junior Driving Experience. It's crucial to provide a valid licence to ensure you can participate in this high-octane event.
Upon arrival, you'll go through a quick sign-on process. Most venues offer an optional Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) during registration at this time. While the decision to opt for CDW is entirely up to you, it provides peace of mind during the experience, so that in the unlikely event the vehicle sustains any damage, you wouldn't be liable for its costs of repairs.
Next comes the drivers' safety briefing - a crucial step to ensure everyone's safety on the track. The briefing covers essential information to keep you and others safe during your time behind the wheel.
Understanding English is vital, as you need to absorb the instructor's instructions and guidelines effectively. The safety of all participants is of utmost importance, and adhering to the guidelines will guarantee a thrilling yet secure experience.
Before hitting the track, you'll then be provided with the necessary safety gear for your relevant supercar experience. This usually includes a full-face helmet, though it might vary depending on the location.
Now comes the moment you've been eagerly awaiting - choosing your dream supercar! If you've booked an experience that allows you to select from a range of cars, take your time to explore the available options.
Engage in conversations with the knowledgeable instructors about each car's unique features and capabilities. Factors like weather conditions on the day or your personal preferences can influence your choice. Soak in this opportunity to make an informed decision, ensuring you make the most of your time on the track when you do finally get out there.
On the other hand, if you're on a car-specific experience, it's time to acquaint yourself with your chosen automotive beast. Get a feel for the car, familiarise yourself with its layout, and revel in the anticipation of the experience that awaits.
As you've chosen your dream car, it's essential to understand its controls thoroughly. An experienced instructor will guide you through the intricacies of the vehicle, ensuring you feel confident and comfortable when driving on the track. Safety remains the top priority, and the instructor will emphasise crucial safety measures to follow throughout the experience.
Don't hesitate to ask questions or seek clarification - the more you understand, the more enjoyment you'll derive from your supercar adventure.
