Experience the exhilaration of driving a V8 race car around the high-speed Queensland Raceway. For six amazing laps you will have the thrill of a lifetime as a professional race car driver provides ongoing instruction and support, helping you to go faster and faster each lap!
Suit up in racing gear and get behind the wheel of a Ford or Holden V8 race car! Arrive at Queensland Raceway and register at reception before heading off to your pre-drive training session. This will prepare you with everything you need to know about handling the car, cornering, braking and the track map. From here you are ushered to the pit lane and fitted with your own race suit and helmet. Choose your preferred vehicle - Ford or Holden - before jumping into the drivers seat alongside your personal in-car coach. Through an intercom system built into the helmets, your coach will support 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.
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 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, they will reschedule your experience 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 takes place in Willowbank, Queensland - approximately 45 minutes west of Brisbane.
