Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

What's Included? 

  • You drive 9 laps around Barbagallo 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. Then it's time to suit up! Put on your professional helmet, hooked up for discussion with your in-car instructor. You'll be fitted into your race suit and you'll feel the anticipation rise as other cars zoom by. Prior to your drive, you'll be asked whether you would prefer to drive a Ford or Holden.

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 your intercom, your in-car coach will talk you through advanced gear changes and brake points so that you can drive fast and safely. There's no limits on speed, so if someone on the track is lagging, you're encouraged to boot it right past them.
