Follow in the footsteps of your racing heroes - drive a speedy single seat racing car for five laps on the UK's fastest circuit!
Discover the thrill of true speed with this exhilarating racing car experience at Thruxton – the fastest circuit in the UK! You’ll learn the lines and techniques with three laps in the fantastic Porsche Cayman, before driving unaccompanied for five unforgettable laps in a Formula Renault single seat racing car! This is as close as you can get to driving an F1 car, and a great way to follow in the footsteps of your racing heroes. That’s not all though – your high-octane experience will also include a white-knuckle high-speed passenger ride in a 260bhp hatchback!
Upon arrival you will be welcomed in to the driving centre, where you will receive a 25 minute briefing which will be shared with up to 18 drivers in total. You’ll then be introduced to your instructor and you will receive two instructor-driven demonstration laps (approx 4.7 miles) in the Porsche.
Next comes the moment you’ve been waiting for – your turn to take control and tear up the tarmac! You’ll drive three laps (approx 7 miles) in the beautiful Porsche Cayman 2.9, before meeting a new instructor and driving five exhilarating laps (approx 11.7 miles) in a Formula Renault single seat racing car. The excitement doesn’t end there though – you’ll also be treated to a high-speed instructor-driven passenger lap in a Mazda3 MPS!
Your experience will end with a presentation of your Driver Analysis Card and commemorative certificate. Photos and in car DVD available to purchase on day, as well as additional laps in cars (subject to availability).
