Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • You drive 6 laps
  • 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 reception prior to your 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 taken to the pit lane and kitted out with your 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 of your car, 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 instructor will encourage you throughout the drive with advice on gear changes and brake points so that you can drive at great speeds, safely. While not a race, there are no limits on speed and overtaking is common during this thrilling drive experience!
