Experience this exhilarating V8 race car event where you're able to get behind the wheel of a Holden or Ford V8 race car on a championship race track. This experience combines six driving laps with three passenger hot laps at the iconic Queensland Raceway.
Calling all motoring enthusiasts! Your V8 race car drive day begins with pre-drive tuition, where you'll learn the ins and outs of handling the car, cornering, braking and the track map. From here you'll be ushered to pit lane and fitted with your own race suit and helmet. After choosing from a Ford or Holden vehicle to drive, it's go time! You will be safely strapped in behind the wheel, introduced to your friendly in-car coach and off you go for six heart-pounding laps. Through an intercom system built into the helmets, your in-car coach will provide encouragement and advice on gear changes and brake points so that you can drive fast and safely. While not a race, there are no limits on speed and overtaking is common.
Your session finishes with three blistering back seat hot laps. A professional race driver will show you exactly how it's done on TV, traveling at ridiculous speeds while talking you through the experience via your intercom helmet.
Once this experience has been confirmed, changes are at the discretion of the experience provider and arranged directly with them according to this policy:
The price quoted is for one person. There will be about 20-25 people in the drivers briefing. The actual drive experience is one-on-one with a coach connected to you via an intercom system similar to those that you see in international rallies. The hot laps will be with two other people in the car, as there are three passenger seats available.
Friends and family are welcome to come with you, and watch from the pit-lane wall.
The drive may be interrupted or cancelled due to inclement weather as driving at high speed on a wet track can be dangerous. Please contact the supplier to confirm the status of the day. In the case of your drive being cancelled due to weather, you will be rescheduled for a later date.
You need to wear comfortable clothing as the race suit will need to go over any clothing you choose to wear. Fully enclosed, flat soled shoes are required (normal runners are fine).
This experience is located in Willowbank, approximately 45 minutes west of Brisbane.
