More about the F4 racing day


Hit the track in a contemporary Grand Prix-style single-seater with true racing pedigree. You'll also be taught how to master the circuit in the excellent BMW M4.

Paired with a professional racing driver, your session starts with laps in the BMW M4, capable of 0 – 60mph in 4.1 seconds. You'll be shown how to harness the immense 425 horsepower straight six twin-turbo engine.

Once the BMW M4 has been mastered, you will then be strapped into an exhilarating F4 racing car and be challenged to set a sequence of solo flying laps! And you'll take away a print-out showing your progress and lap times to keep for ever, along with a certificate.

The F4 car was designed by Ralph Firman, co-founder of single-seater manufacturer Van Diemen. It's the real deal, with an advanced spaceframe chassis compliant with FIA safety regulations, and state-of-the-art features such as a paddleshift gearbox controlled via a Cosworth Electronics multi-display steering wheel.

The new fleet, which replaces the Formula Brands cars used for RaceMaster, comprises vehicles which were raced in the BRDC F4 Championship, Britain's top single-seater championship, as recently as September 2015. This unique pedigree means that the Kent circuit now offers the most authentic contemporary single-seater experience in the country, allowing guests to sit in the very same cockpit that has housed winners of the prestigious McLaren Autosport BRDC Award for young drivers.

The driving experience will last around two hours, including registration, briefings, 15 minutes' driving time in each car and a high-speed passenger lap in the BMW M4.
