Main description

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. You are then ushered to 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 encourage you through your drive with advice on gear changes and brake points so that you can drive fast and safely. While not a race, there are no limits on speed and overtaking is common during this thrilling drive experience!

You can choose to purchase an Speed Stick (In-Car USB Recording) and/or Super Photo Souvenir on the day. These are sold for $49 each.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great fun, too short so will have to do again Well organised, it was clear what to do and where to go. Good pre drive experience mingling with others and watching the group before us - perfect weather helped. Briefing excellent. Prep staff pleasant and helpful. Not having driven a manual for 10 plus years, I probably would have benefited from it being 10 laps. Coach very helpful and informative. Car felt and sounded how it should for such an experience. Great fun!!!!!!! 9 May 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome once in a life time experience! I had such a great day. Everything was run well and everyone was fantastic, especially all the coaches and strappers. The staff made me feel confident in myself and helped to get the most out of my experience. My coach was Justin and he certainly helped me to push past my nerves and fear and helped me get the most out of my driving experience. I would certainly recommend this to anyone whether you think you are a confident driver or not it doesn't matter because all the staff were there to make sure you made the most of your experience. 5 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great experience, great gift idea! My boyfriend loves cars and going fast, and finally he was allowed to do so in a safe and legal environment. It was an extra bonus that the drive was recorded and professional pictures taken. 23 April 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Was the best experience You see the V8 Supercars driving around Sandown and you get to experience the same by driving your favourite car at the high speeds on an actual race track. Best experience ever. Also having the USB recording of your drive, then you can show your family and friends over and over again. It's a must do for V8 fans. 7 March 2013
