Go V8 racing for the ultimate thrill. This V8 driving experience will have you strapped in and raring to go for a spectacular 4 laps around a real racetrack. You'll be taught pro driving techniques and talked through your experience through an intercom, getting you to speeds of up to 200kph!

 What's Included 

    • You drive 4 laps
    • Race suits and helmets will be provided
    • Driver briefing is held before the race event

Your V8 race car drive day begins as you register at our reception prior to your pre-drive tuition. This will prepare you for driving a race prepared V8 race car with information on handling the car, cornering, braking and the track map. Then it's time to suit up! Put on your professional helmet and hook up for discussion with your in-car instructor. You'll be fitted into your race suit and you'll feel the anticipation rise as other cars zoom by. Prior to your drive, you'll be asked whether you would prefer to drive a Ford or Holden! You are then strapped in behind the wheel, introduced to your personal in-car coach and off you go for your drive of a lifetime! Through your intercom, your in-car coach will talk you through advanced gear changes and brake points so that you can drive fast and safely. You will be able to drive on a fantastic circuit with long straights, thrilling undulations and challenging cornering. There's no limits on speed, so if someone on the track is lagging you're encouraged to boot it right past them. You can choose to purchase a Super Photo Souvenir and In-Car digital video recording with telemetry on a USB stick on the day for $49 each.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 59 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by A worthy experience The experience was good, the only criticism would be that a warm up lap isn't in addition to the paid laps. A warm up lap to get use to the car and corners would enhance the overall drive. 7 May 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by I was excited with anticipation and it fulfilled my dreams I have always wanted to do car racing eventually. This has wetted my appetite to do more. 6 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great experience, enjoyed every minute I enjoyed the whole experience, the staff were friendly and very helpful, the event easily lived up to my expectations. would defiantly recommend this to friends and family. 5 May 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by More laps = more fun! This was a gift. 4 laps only just allows enough time to get the hang of the track and therefore and least 8 laps would be more beneficial. The option to upgrade with more laps from the outset would be very good. The car I drove was a little clapped out and I expected more power. Seemed to be more of a money making sausage factory to me and the photo package should have included a 'real' shot whilst actually driving. 4 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exciting I purchased my drive so I could be with my son in law having a good time. We had a fantastic experience! From the professional instruction and in car coaching to the responsive speed of the car it was a blast. My only reget is that it went so fast. Perhaps I'll have to have another go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Two words....Bloody Awesome..... As I said above, just bloody awesome. My girlfriend purchased this for me as a Christmas present she lives in Sydney and came over for the weekend to watch me. The whole event, from the briefing, to suiting up, photo shoot, and then the drive WOW my only complaint is 4 laps was not enough but I'm not complaining I had the time of my life and will be back very soon to do it again with a whole load more confidents. The video taken and recorded on USB was awesome also top quality. I would certainly recommend this event to everyone I know keep up the good work and thanks again see ya soon :) Kindest Regards (and still smiling) Tony Percey 30 April 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Fun but Don't bother with 4 Laps My experience was 4 v8 hot laps that I recieved as a gift. I will get straight to the point, I did enjoy my drive but with only 4 laps I stepped out of the car dissatisfied at how long the briefing/suiting up/travel to get there was compared to the actual drive time. My advise to you is to not even bother with a 4 lap experience because it is too short and you hop out of the car with a feeling of dissapointment not achievement. 4 laps simply is not enough time to conform to the car and memorise the track. I will not recommend this experience to others as I believe that the 4 laps is a waste of money and if you want to experience the v8 hot laps either have at least 6-8 laps or do not bother at all. 29 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Experience I bought this has a gift for my brother in December. The wait was well worth it. He loved it and was very excited he said the drivers who did the coaching were totally awesome. Very professional and fun guys to be around. The weather was great the track was dry and the Adrenaline was pumping. Totally great day. 28 April 2013
