Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • 5 Laps in a Formula Ford race car
  • 2 Hot Laps in a F1-style, 2-seater Formula Ford race car
  • Includes driver instruction by real race car drivers
  • Coffee, tea and water supplied
  • All race and safety equipment provided: helmets, race suits and boots

Driving a single-seater Formula Ford racing car is unlike anything else. These are real race cars! You'll be strapped into the open cockpit by a six-point racing harness with the quick release steering wheel in front of you. You'll have the gear stick on your right connected to a 4-speed close ratio, purpose-built racing gearbox. Seated only a couple of inches off the ground you can feel every bump and vibration as your super-responsive car reacts to every tiny adjustment you make. You will drive 5 blistering laps of Sydney Motorsport Park, Corporate Hill Section of the South Circuit. This consists of 2 orientation laps in a road car and 5 Laps on your own.

Next up is your Hot Laps. This F1-style, 2-seater Formula Ford racing car is unlike anything else you've experienced. You're so close to the ground that you can feel every bump and vibration as your super-responsive car reacts to each tiny adjustment. And your cornering forces exceed 2.5Gs!
