Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

Your V8 drive day begins as you register at reception before heading down to see pit lane. At this point, you can also choose to purchase an in-car video / DVD prior to your drive to record every memorable in-car V8 driving moment (additional cost payable directly to the supplier on the day). Feel free to watch the action on the circuit before being called to the driver’s briefing.

The driver’s briefing ís delivered in an air-conditioned room by an experienced V8 race driver who knows the race track intimately. The briefing will prepare you for driving one of our race prepared Holden or Ford V8 race cars.

After the briefing, we head to 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 to be the driver, we’ll strap you behind the wheel of the V8, introduce you to your personal in-car coach and before long you’ll be burning rubber out of pit lane for the drive of a lifetime!

Your coach will show you the fastest way around the track, showing you how to drive the best you possibly can and helping you to improve lap times and cornering techniques. You’ll be treated to 5 self-drive 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 a V8 race car driver!

A DVD of your drive is available for an additional $45, payable directly to the supplier.
On the Day

Please allow at least 2 hours for the entire experience, including your driver briefing and self-drive in the V8. Race days are held throughout the year on both weekdays and weekends on set race dates. We run session every half hour from 7.00am to 3.00pm, sessions are subject to availability.

Numbers on the Day

The price quoted is for one person. There will be about 20 – 25 people in the drivers briefing. The actual drive experience is one-on-one with a coach connected to you via an intercom system similar to those that you see in international rallies.


The drive may be interrupted or cancelled due to inclement weather as driving at high speed on a wet track can be dangerous. Please contact the supplier to confirm the status of the day. In the case of your drive being cancelled due to weather, we will reschedule your experience for a later date.

Dress Code

You need to wear comfortable clothing as the race suit will need to go over any clothing you choose to wear. Fully enclosed, flat soled shoes are required (normal runners are fine).
