The driving day begins with the chance to put the Ferrari 360 to the test. Turning your hand to the Nissan GTR, you can experience its sheer power and performance, before sampling the unbeatable speed of the single seater shootout. Moving to the off-road course, you will have the chance to power around aboard a Ford Fiesta ST Group Rally N, before you experience powerslides aboard a Caterham 7. And finally, this diverse and exciting motorsport masterclass ends with a once in a lifetime lap on the Grand Prix circuit.
The Grand Prix challenge kicks off with registration at 8am, followed by breakfast and a brief introduction to the day’s activities, then it’s straight into the action. Three driving sessions will take place before your well-earned two course buffet lunch. Then it 's back onto the track for your three remaining experiences. The action concludes with your chance to drive the famous Silverstone Grand Prix circuit. Then it’s time to depart, taking with you memories which will last a lifetime. Across the course of your day, you will drive the following powerful motor-vehicles: Ferrari 360 F1 Modena, Nissan GTR, Ford Fiesta ST Group N Rally, Rage Buggy, Caterham 7, Formula Silverstone Single Seater and Megane Renault Sport 250.

I got a gift experience voucher for my husband to do 'The Silverstone Challenge' for his birthday. He said it was the ideal gift for him as he's a bit of a motoring fanatic and he got the chance to drive supercars off road vehicles as well as proper racing cars like in Formula 1. He had a full day of driving and came back grinning from ear to ear!

I Robert Francis Dunkley have driven the Grand Prix Circuit at Silverstone! I just had to put that in writing to believe it actually happened! The most amazing day in the world ever - I drove a Ferrari a Porsche and a Lotus went off-roading in a Land Rover and a quad bike raced rally cars and even a speedy little Caterham 7! And I drove the GRAND PRIX CIRCUIT!!! (Did I say that already?!)
