Goodwood is one of the country's most famous race circuits. Graham Hill drove his first single-seater race here, and Stirling Moss drove his last - it truly is a beautiful course, with a real racing heritage. Add a Formula Ford 2000 single seat racing car to that track and you have a true driving dream team. The F2000 single seat race car is capable of speeds up to 150mph, and was the stepping stone that drivers such as Emerson Fittipaldi, David Coulthard and Jensen Button used before they graduated to Formula One. The day will start with a welcome, introduction and complete safety briefing from a highly trained instructor. You'll be kitted out in protective wear and safety equipment before being taken onto the track in a sports saloon. You'll be tutored for 2-3 laps as the ARDS qualified instructor takes you around the course, giving you tips on racing lines and driving technique. Next you'll take the wheel of an Alpha 159 for 2-3 laps to familiarise yourself with the circuit. Then comes the main event: you'll get to rip up the track in a Formula Ford 2000 single-seater race car. This is your chance to emulate the likes of Hill, Moss and Button. With 4 laps you will really be able to get a handle on the circuit and set some great times, and you'll even receive an individual commemorative certificate to mark your achievement.

Poor, really poor

1 out of 5 27 August 2015
Location: Age: 35-44 Bought For Friend Occasion: Birthday
4 laps only in the single seater and you are not allowed to drive it and 'set great times' as they describe, you are told it is 'an experience' 'not a race day' and have to drive around at a pedestrian speed for a race car. Super disappointed and not as described. If you try and go even slightly fast they threaten to not let you do 'the experience'. When driving the 4 seat Alfa between 60 and 70mph, I was told repeatedly 'to slow down' and I was 'going to fast' (!?!?!) and then received a 10 minute lecture from the instructor. You could go as fast/faster on the road. Ridiculous & Pointless. A massive disappointment.
What would you improve for next time? More laps and either let people drive, or honestly describe the experience.

Hi Thanks for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that your experience wasn't as expected. Our suppliers must always provide speed restrictions for the safety of all participants on the track as you may appreciate, it can be very dangerous to drive at a high speed whilst other cars are on the track. There are some points on the track where you are asked to slow down such as bends or tight corners, all of which are for the safety of the participants. I'll ensure that your feedback has been raised with our supplier for future review. Thanks again for your feedback.

This was a birlliant day and would recommend it to anyone who dreams of driving a Formula One car. Leaning back in the Formula Ford 2000 holding tightly to the steering wheel as I sped around Goodwood circuit with the air rushing past my head.

Driving a single seater through the tunnel in to one of the most important motorsport locations in history the hairs on the back of my neck stood up. Words can't express the feeling you get putting your foot to the floor in a true racing car on your own around a race circuit like Goodwood - absolutely awesome and unforgettable! What a day! You MUST have this experience. Eat your heart out Lewis Hamilton!
