Take the wheel of the McLaren for six glorious miles
For a driving experience to remember, come to the Oulton Park circuit in Cheshire and meet a McLaren MP4-12C supercar. The experience starts on arrival with a short briefing from an instructor on safety and to introduce drivers to the particular track driving techniques. Next get familiar with the racing lines from the passenger seat whilst the instructor drives round the circuit in a sports saloon for a couple of miles. Finally take a deep breath and get ready to be thrilled - slide into the driver's seat of the McLaren and drive for six exhilarating miles of the circuit. Prepare to be amazed!
Runs on weekdays only. As dates fill very quickly, we recommend booking several weeks (at least six) in advance.
Minimum age is 18. Maximum weight is 20 stone. Minimum height is 5'0'', maximum 6'5''. A full British or international manual driving licence must have been held for at least 12 months and brought on the day in order to participate.
Driving may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow, ice, heavy rain or high winds) which would make driving at speed dangerous. Please call the venue if in any doubt.
Expect to be at the circuit for up to two hours, including a briefing and six miles driving the McLaren. Please arrive 30 minutes in advance of the booked time to ensure a prompt start.
Numbers on the Day
All in-car tuition is on a one-to-one basis. Briefings are held in groups of up to 30 people. There might be other vehicles on the track at the same time.
Friends and family are welcome and there are excellent spectating and catering facilities on-site. Please note that animals are not allowed at the circuit, with the exception of guide dogs.

The race circuit is MSA (Motor Sports Association) approved for quality and safety. The organiser was established in 1978 and is a founder member of The Association of Racing Drivers' Schools. All instructors here are ARDS qualified. When booking expect to be offered the choice of buying a collision damage waiver at £20 to £40 additional charge. Please note there is no obligation to purchase this optional waiver.
