  • Use of race suits and helmets
  • Driver briefing
  • Choice of Ford or Holden V8 race car

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.
