Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

    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 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 encourage you through your drive with advice on gear changes and brake points so that you can drive fast and safely. There are no limits on speed and overtaking is common during this thrilling drive experience!

    After completing your drive you are presented with a laminated photo certificate to prove that you really were a V8 race car driver!

    A video of your experience is available for an additional $45, payable directly to the supplier.
