Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • 2 drive sessions - 6 laps per session
  • 2 drive evaluation review sessions
  • In-car digital video recording of both drive sessions
  • In-car coaching from your own CAMS Competition licensed in-car coach

This half day V8 race driving course, designed by V8 Legend John Bowe and V8 Team Owner Rod Dawson, is an experience for those who want more than just a taste of driving a V8 race car at speed on a championship race track. The V8 Racing Team behind this experience are well equipped to provide this very special experience with Top Gun CAMS Coaches and the latest in in-car recoding and performance training feedback.

After registration you’ll attend a drivers briefing covering all the key points for fast and safe performance driving - cornering, high pressure braking, gear selection, racing lines and overtaking. After the briefing you will suit up, put on a race helmet and choose a V8 Ford or Holden. You will then meet your in-car coach and get behind the wheel of a race prepared V8.

In your first session you will drive 6 laps. Throughout the drive your race coach will provide instruction to help you drive faster and faster. Following your first drive you'll have time to take a feedback break in a pit side garage, just like real racers do between practice and qualifying sessions.
