Overview

Discover just how impressive the gleaming Aston Martin V8 Vantage can be on a track, with its 19” slicks and 8000rpm redline with this track experience for one. Organised to ensure you get the most out of the Vantage V8’s incredible power, speed and handling, your experience will take place on a custom-built track and includes practise laps and one-to-one instruction. You’ll receive a briefing that covers safety, track day etiquette and more from the personable team after they’ve welcomed you, and then get ready to drive. You’ll get a sighting lap in a track prepared sports car with your instructor driving, followed by a high-speed passenger lap, before you jump into the Vantage and get 10 laps with an instructor by your side to offer professional tips! With a perfectly positioned V8 engine and at full power, a stunning 400bhp, the Vantage V8 will more than live up to your expectations.

  • Two track sighting lap as a passenger in one of the track prepared sports cars (Evo X, Subaru STI or M3)

V8 Vantage
05 September 2020
The best part of the drive was the sound, a close second was the handling. I was very fortunate to have James as my instructor, as he guided and encouraged me throughout the drive, without being intrusive. The lap was very short so I was thankful I had 10 laps to experience as awesome car.

Fulfilled a wish
01 September 2019
My family insist that I have been mentioning driving an Aston Martin for years and so they bought me this experience to fulfil that dream. I thoroughly enjoyed the day, despite the rain, and the experience of driving on a track was completely different to normal driving. The instructor was helpful without intruding too much into the experience and I would recommend the experience to others.

Aston V8 - poor experience!
20 July 2019
This gift was billed as some kind of unique experience, driving a 'supercar' round a circuit - or so I thought! The actual experience was rather different. An unappealing setting amongst portacabins, was followed by counter staff less enthusiastic and polite than a busy Tesco checkout! The unique experience was in fact in company with about 40 other people all being shuttled into various cars ,some of whom would be sharing the track together! The driving itself was way short of what the build up led me to believe - a very short circuit, mainly a large oval made up of various bends with virtually no straights, was probably shorter in length than most go kart circuits! As such no great speed or appreciation of the car could be achieved, as evidenced by the fact that the car remained in 3rd gear for the whole ten laps! Which lasted no time, all for well over £100, plus £35 for an accident waiver which surely should be included in the price? Very disappointed, certainly wouldn't bother with it again, and wouldn't recommend. The track is just too short, and only of use if all you want to do is drive round a series of tight bends at speed? And then only if other cars already on the track don't slow you up! There are two very short passing areas, and the fact they are there indicates how tiny the circuit is! The whole smacked of the company trying to get as many people through and round the circuit as possible, thereby maximising profit. You would be much better spending your money by taking your own car to a proper 'track day' on a decent circuit, or going to a recognised circuit with one of the big manufacturers and using one of their high performance cars.

Great experience
16 October 2018
I gave this driving experience to my boyfriend for his birthday. The booking process was very easy,we booked through the website,chose a date and gave our voucher details. We arrived by train in Hemel Hempstead and took a cab to get to the circuit. It took us only a few minutes to get there. When getting there we gave drivers licence and chose the full insurance,what cost an additional 25 £ but is worth the money if you want to be on the safe side,in case you have an accident etc. Before starting you do a briefing in a conference room about the cars,how to drive etc. After you can order additional laps or cars for a much lower price, what is great if you fancy driving another type of car. Whilest waiting for your turn to drive,they do a few laps of explaining in a different car as a passenger to get to know the circuit etc. The driving itself has been amazing.even though you only drive in 3rd gear it was completely enough to test the car to feel it’s power and to go fast. Very kind and helpful staff. Definitely recommendable

For fun and driving skills
17 November 2017
10 laps seemed the perfect start for a track experience with time to get to know the track and to see the progress you're making with the real-time advice of the instructor. Driving an Aston Martin was one of my dreams, check! The team is also very conscious that people wan to enjoy their experience in the best conditions. Whether you are being slowed down by other cars on the track or you are constantly asked to pull over in the slow lane, instructors only count the laps you completed without being disturbed.
