Highlights

  • Drive a real V8 race car
  • In-car coaching from a professional race car driver
  • Reach speeds of up to 200km/hr!

Suit up for an exhilarating driving event that will have you behind the wheel of a V8 race car. Get your adrenalin pumping for six laps as you blister around a championship race track, receiving professional instruction and encouragement throughout.

What's Included?

  • Drive briefing
  • Six laps in a V8 race car
  • Use of race suits and helmets

Your V8 race car drive day begins as you register at reception prior to your pre-drive tuition. This will prepare you for driving a race prepared V8 race car with information on handling the car, cornering, braking and the track map. You are then ushered to pit lane and fitted with your own race suit and helmet. Prior to your drive, you'll be asked whether you would prefer an automatic or manual, Ford or Holden to drive. You are then strapped in behind the wheel, introduced to your personal in-car coach and off you go for your drive of a lifetime! Through an intercom system built into the helmets, your in-car coach will encourage you through your drive with 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 during this thrilling drive experience!
