That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.

Experience the unforgettable thrill of driving an F1-Style, open-wheel Formula Ford Race Car. Built for speed it is capable of achieving lap times significantly faster than a Porsche 911. Plus experience 2 exhilarating Hot Laps with you in the passenger seat, driving at unimaginable speeds!
Driving a single-seater Formula Ford racing car is unlike anything else. These are real race cars! You'll be strapped into the open cockpit by a six-point racing harness with the quick release steering wheel in front of you. You'll have the gear stick on your right connected to a 4-speed close ratio, purpose-built racing gearbox. Seated only a couple of inches off the ground you can feel every bump and vibration as your super-responsive car reacts to every tiny adjustment you make. You will drive 5 blistering laps of Sydney Motorsport Park's, Corporate Hill Section of the South Circuit. This consists of an additional 2 orientation laps in a road car and then 5 Laps on your own, to put into practice what you have been taught.
Next up is your Hot Laps. This purpose built F1-style, 2-seater Formula Ford racing car is unlike anything else you've experienced. You will be hammering around the circuit with a Professional Driver for the ride of your life! He won't hold back, sliding and drifting this machine through the corners, to millimeter perfection, nailing the brake markers way past your expectation as you are pinned into the 6 point harness. Witness the feeling of the wind blasting over your body and the roar of the engine - just inches behind your head as you power out of the corner. This car has over 2.5Gs of lateral grip, the cornering forces are unbelievable.
In the event of rain or inclement weather your experience will still go ahead unless contacted by the experience provider. If they deem the track unsafe, due to extreme weather conditions, they will reschedule your experience to a later date.
If you have your own race gear, feel free to bring them along. Otherwise we supply all safety gear, helmets, boots and suits. Bring a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses and socks.
When you are driving you are responsible for any damage done to the race vehicle
This experience takes place at Eastern Creek NSW - 30 minutes drive from Sydney CBD.
