Experience life in the fast lane as you get behind the wheel during this V8 race car driving experience at Sandown, Victoria. You're adrenalin will go through the roof as you drive 9 laps in a powerful V8 race car around the championship race track. Sit down, strap in and speed up!

What's Included? 

    • You drive 9 laps (Total of 27.9 KM's) around Sandown Raceway
    • 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 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. You are then ushered to the pit lane and fitted with your own race suit and helmet. Prior to your drive, you'll be asked whether you would prefer an automatic or manual, Ford or Holden to drive! 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 an intercom system built into the helmets, your in-car coach will provide encouragement as you drive, with advice on gear changes and brake points so you can drive safely...and fast! While not a race, there are no limits on speed and overtaking is common during this thrilling drive experience! 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.
