Stirling Moss, Nigel Mansell, Lewis Hamilton – just three of the World Champion Formula 1 drivers that Britain has produced. Secretly, we are all envious of them. It’s every kid’s dream to be a racing driver, and it is an vision that age never dims. Unfortunately, only a handful of people in the world ever get to be Formula 1 drivers and so it’s an ambition that most people never get to fulfil....until now! No tricks, no cheats, no lies, this experience lets you drive a genuine Formula 1 racing car - either Luca Badoer’s 1996 Italian Forte Corsa, or Aguri Suzuki’s 1994 Arrows race car! Obviously you can’t be expected to just leap into the cockpit of such a specialised car and drive off into the sunset, you need training and this whole day package will give you the skills you need to be able to get the maximum out of the race car.

A Very Happy Husband A fantastic day that starts in a saloon car and works its way upto the ultimate F1. Butterfies and smiles all round. There were 9 drivers in total so there wasnt as much waiting around as expected. Lunch was a buffet which was nice. Husband came away with photo, film of drive, basball hat and ornament. 19 October 2012
It takes a long time to get the grin off your face Most people's reaction when you tell them about an F1 driving day is that it's daft to imagine that they can take anyone off the street and let them drive a real formula one car. On arrival at the Three Sisters Race Track to a warm welcome from the instructors and a very professional briefing it becomes obvious that you are in good hands , and any reservations you might have had about being 'up to it' melt away as the day goes on thanks to the sheer level of excellence of the instruction. When the time comes you can't wait to get your hands on the beautiful thoroughbred. It takes a long time to get the grin off your face.90% of what you learn carries over to road driving;some bonus! 25 March 2011
This was the ultimate boy racer experience! Mega fast mega powerful Formula 1 and Formula 3 race cars in my hands real genuine ex-Grand Prix ones and no speed cameras! The overnight at a hotel with dinner was great for the wife too so she didn't feel too left out! She went shopping for the day while I was having my racing adventure! 16 November 2010
I have been a fan of Formula 1 motor racing ever since I can remember so this experience was a dream come true! I could not believe I was actually driving a Grand Prix race car! The overnight stay and delicious evening meal meant that me and the mrs could make a real hotel break of it too. Brilliant touch to make the experience complete. 16 November 2010
