V8 Race Car Driving Experience - 9 Laps WA

Code: VRE912
  1. Valid for 12 months
  2. Free exchange

A rare opportunity to DRIVE a V8 race car on a full-length championship race track, Barbagallo. Experience 9 laps in a V8 under professional tuition. You'll be encouraged to put your foot to the floor as you feel what it's like to bring out the legendary Supercar driver within!

What's Included? 

    • You drive 9 laps (Total of 21.6KM's) around Barbagallo 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 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, hooked 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! (Please Note: Automatic Vehicles are NOT available) 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. 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.

This experience voucher is valid for 12 months from date of purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by One of THE BEST things I've ever done!! If you've ever wanted to drive a V8 Supercar I absolutely recommend you buy some laps and experience this!! From the moment you get kitted out in the race suit and helmet, to sitting in the car and getting strapped in (and no, are are not going to move around in your seat!) the adrenalin is just pumping! My coach told me to get comfortable with the accelerator and the gears before we took off and I tell you what when I revved the car I was like OMG!!! So we take off for the first lap and it's quite slow so but only so you familiarise yourself with the car and the track, where to brake, where to change gears etc... then you let it rip around the track!! ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT and would definately do it again!!! 21 April 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 Absolutely Brilliant, very professional organization, I will be recommending your V8 experience to a number of family and friends. My ride was given to me by my son as a 70th birthday present. I have followed motor racing all my life but had to wait till now to actually experience driving a race car. THANKYOU. 22 August 2012
