Begin with a full briefing and a demonstration lap from a qualified instructor before taking the wheel of the refined Ferrari F360 for six miles of exhilarating driving. With a top speed of 183 mph and acceleration rate of 0 - 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, the Ferrari offers pace and handling in abundance. Next, drive a further six miles in the Atom, with an ultra-lightweight chassis, no roof and no door, this is no average looking sports car and it can reach 0 - 60 in an amazing 2.7 seconds, reaching a top speed of 150 mph. Expect to leave Donington Park Race Circuit grinning from ear to ear.
