Father’s Day Weekend – 18th & 19th June 2016

Not just another track day experience…..the 30 minute driving experiences offer great value option for getting behind the wheel of some amazing sport cars & supercars, on real roads!

We’re offering an alternative to track/airfield based experiences, where you get to try some amazing cars in their intended environment – on the road! Starting at the Haynes International Motor Museum, we’ll take you on a route of mixed roads so you can see how each car performs on the road, free from crash helmets, and get time to actually know the car rather than a quick blast round some cones on a baron airfield! The pre-planned route will last approximately 15-20 minutes, with a 5 minute briefing before leaving, and 5 minutes at the end for photographs. There’s no other experience like it!

Please find below details of the cars available to book:


Aston Martin V8 Vantage – £79.00 (Min age 28)


It’s surely one of the best-looking sports cars on the market, and thankfully the Aston Martin V8 Vantage is amongst the best to drive too. It was launched in 2005, but subtle updates have kept it looking fresh and changes to the engine and chassis have ensured it doesn’t feel dated on the road either. The 4.3-litre engine coupled with the exhaust note, make this a fantastic sounding car too. Our manual model is presented in gunmetal grey, with subtle grey leather. Sophistication at its best!

Nissan GT-R – £79.00 (Min age 28)


The GTR needs no introduction. Anyone with even a small interest in cars knows what the GTR is. It’s difficult to know which impresses most: the outright level of performance the Nissan GTR offers, or how accessible it makes it! The GTR badge has a long heritage, but this latest GTR is simply mind blowing! On the outside its aggressive looks make it stand out from the crowd, whilst inside the lavish black and red leather trim make it a great place to be!

The Nissan GTR must be one of the most exciting cars to have been released in the last few years and is now available to drive.

Ferrari – £99.00  (Min age 30)


A Ferrari needs no introduction, it is the car of many peoples dreams and is probably the most widely recognised supercar brand in the world! Our very own Ferrari has a the best colour combination, along with a gearbox with F1 style paddles.

Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder – £99.00 (Min age 28)


In true Lamborghini style, the Gallardo Spyder is a real headturner, and is car which will get anyone’s pulse racing! The big 5 litre V10 engine kicks out over 500bhp and plenty of noise to go with it. The slick electric folding roof disappears quickly to further accentuate the Gallardo’s razor sharp lines.

Inside is a mix of black leather with subtle yellow stitching, with a hint on the centre console that Audi has had its influence in some areas. Our Giallo Midas Gallardo Spyder has auto transmission, with the all important paddle shift option, as well as rear facing camera, lifting gear, heated seats, sat nav, and endless amounts of Italian style!

The Mustang is probably one of the most well-known American cars here in the UK, and now is available to drive in the Southwest, a great looking Mustang GT V8 is must for you to drive.

The Mustang takes a simple approach to classic American motoring, with a fantastic sounding 4.6 litre V8 engine, simple controls, and a Auto gearbox. Space is good too with 2 rear seats, so you can take the kids or friends with you on your drive!
