Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • You drive 6 laps around Hidden Valley Raceway
  • Use of race suit and helmet
  • Driver briefing held before the race event

Your V8 race car drive day begins as you register at 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 the pit lane and fitted with your own race suit and helmet. Prior to your drive, you'll be asked whether you would prefer a 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 provide encouragement as you drive, with advice on gear changes and brake points so you can drive safely...and fast! While not a race, there are no limits on speed and overtaking is common during this thrilling drive experience!
