Initial laps driven by the instructor in a Mazda3 MPS
Driving on a race circuit is very different to normal road driving. To make the most of the cars you’ll be driving on track you need to learn the ‘racing line’ and braking points.

We use the brilliant Mazda3 MPS for these initial laps. One of the most powerful front-wheel drive hatchbacks on the market.

Our ARDS qualified race instructors will demonstrate the racing lines and braking points plus other hints and tips to help you get the most from your driving experience.

Out on track it may seem quite unfamiliar with no road marks or signs and no cars coming in the other direction, but after 3 laps watching and listening to your race instructor you’ll have built up a good idea of the circuit layout and be confident when you first get behind the wheel and head out on track.

The latest Porsche Cayman is a genuine junior supercar.  Similar in looks to the 911 but with a mid-engine layout, this new model has the larger 2.9-litre engine with a 6-speed manual gearbox.

Out on track the car gives incredible feedback, allowing the driver to build in confidence and enjoy the increased power and incredible grip that the car generates.

Nowhere else in the UK will you drive such an expensive and new car as your introduction to a driving experience.

With 4 laps behind the wheel you’ll not only have a huge smile on your face but be ready to take on the next car, no doubt feeling like the next Lewis Hamilton.

4 laps pupil drives the Ferrari F355

When the Ferrari F355 was first unveiled, it caused a shock throughout the motoring world. It was the best, by a mile, in the way that it drove and how it looked.

Today the car is still a head turner and brilliantly satisfying to drive on track which is testimony to just how right the Ferrari designers and engineers were when they produced the car.

Seated in the leather driving seat you can take in the beautifully crafted interior. The V8 fires into life then settles to a low burble.

Out on track the engine note progresses from a bark to a full on howl as you accelerate up the gears - its completely addictive and you'll want to drive it home. Now you know why a Ferrari is so special.
