Description

Enjoy the seriously fun experience of driving a single seater racing car. You’ll find yourself securely strapped in to your car, kitted up with a helmet, adjusting your mirrors to get ready to begin your experience. You will receive an initial briefing, followed by instruction from an expert instructor and time to become familiar with the track before being judged safe to drive solo and accelerate into the distance.

There are seven locations across the UK for you to choose from. Feel the speed and sense of sheer exhilaration as you whizz around the track, testing your concentration and the skills you have just learnt. It is a buzz that you won’t be able to shift and when the flag eventually brings you back to the pits you will be full of adrenaline.

What happens on the day?

On arrival you will normally be asked to sign an indemnity form which will also require parental/guardian signature for under 18s. Your training session will usually be shared with other drivers. You will be given an initial briefing, followed by track familiarisation and instruction from a qualified instructor before being allowed out solo in a single-seater racing car once you have been judged safe enough.

Choose one of six race circuits across the UK, each offer the same adrenaline filled experience but driving times may vary per location.

Some driving operators require customers to complete an Indemnity/Damage waiver form on the day of the experience. This may state that the driver will be liable for a fixed amount of costs should they damage the vehicle whilst driving. Most of these suppliers are able to provide Indemnity/Damage Waiver at a small additional fee (usually £20-£45) payable on site. The purchase of this is optional and is in addition to the Public Liability Insurance held by all venues. The full details of any indemnity or damage waiver will be provided by the activity operator.
