Experience an exhilarating event where you get to ride in a V8 race car on a high-speed Clubman circuit configuration at QLD Raceway. For 5 amazing laps, you’ll be driven by one of our experienced V8 race drivers in the front seat.

Your V8 drive day begins as you register at reception before heading down to see pit lane where you’ll be fitted with a race suit and helmet. After you’re completely kitted up in the race gear, you’ll have your photo taken with one of the V8’s prior to your drive. At this point you can also choose a Holden or Ford – a very easy choice for most motoring enthusiasts! When it’s your turn we’ll strap you in next to a professional (experienced) V8 race car driver. You’ll be treated to 5 Hot laps around the circuit and we guarantee the thrill of the race will certainly be in your veins! After completing your 5 laps, you can collect your laminated photo certificate to prove that you really were in a V8 race car

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome!! I was gripping my seat and didn't breath for 5 laps! The first lap was terrifying, but after that I began to enjoy the ride and trust that the driver was so amazingly skilled.

Rated 5 out of 5 by This was the most awesome birthday present ever Being a V 8 racing fan this was my 60th Birthday present from my husband. I am also a breast cancer survivor of 6 years and I am doing things that I never ever thought I would do because life is so precious and so short that we have to fit in as much fun things as we can. I was initially scared, but doing this experience proved to me that I am O.K. and that I can do anything if I set my mind to it!!! Absolutely awesome!!!! 12 February 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Birthday surprise We kept it a secret until the car park. My son got out of the car, looked around and said... "this isn't a country pub hosting a hot rod show". The ploy to get him in the car. That's when we revealed the surprise. "happy birthday" your a front seat passenger in a V8 race car. He had the time of his life. The smile on his face lasted days. We wanted to surprise him and we did. All I can say is "fantastic and thank you" . Kerri 20 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 All positive from this end. Everyone we have dealt with spoken to on phone, email have been so helpful and have given us good clear helpful advise. The People at The Raceway also made our day so stress free. The fast laps were purchased for my son who has a disability, they fussed over him and made him laugh, and I tell you he will never forget that day. It was the most positive, thoughtful, fun filled day for him and for us. Thank you RedBalloon and thank you everyone at The Raceway V8 fast laps. 26 August 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Fantastic experience and well organised! 10 August 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 it was the most exciting thing I have ever done. The day was fantastic... I would do it all over again in an instant. My driver was great, he tried so hard to frighten me, but all it did was make me want to drive the car myself. Great track, great staff, great experience. 29 May 2012
