What's Included?

  • Drive six laps in a Holden or Ford V8 race car
  • In-car instruction from a professional race car driver
  • Photo certificate

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.
