Group Tips from Instructor Observations

Just you and only 15 other drivers will have the track, the crew and all the cars dedicated to this special full day with no damage responsibility! Maximum experience for minimum price!

Following an introductory briefing, you will be issued your personal racing gear and you're off to pit lane and our outstanding fleet of Van Diemen Formula cars. These purpose-built single seaters are very responsive with an incredible power-to-weight ratio. Braking and race shifting driving exercises become the excited topic of conversation during the complimentary lunch in the Bridgestone Racer's Den. Drivers then return to the track for three full 15-minute lapping sessions. On select dates, between sessions drivers will enjoy the entire modern track-side Event Centre, with its air conditioned 2nd floor observation lounge.

The last session is upgraded: you will be absolutely thrilled by our Advanced track configuration (NEW for 2015) and you will receive group tips from the instructor's observations. This is our top three session "Done in a Day" introductory course! Come live the dream!
