Prepare to be thrilled by haring around Donington Park in a Ferrari. Begin with a short briefing from a qualified instructor who will talk about racing lines and track driving techniques. The instructor will drive round the national circuit in a sports saloon for approximately two miles of familiarisation laps to demonstrate the racing lines. Then take the driving seat of Ferrari 360 (with an acceleration rate of 0 - 60 mph in four and a half seconds) for six miles in total. The Donington Park circuit benefits from flexible configuration, with extensive run off areas which allow drivers to fully exploit the car's potential.
Selected weekdays, throughout the year. Dates fill very quickly, so we recommend booking 12 weeks in advance.
Minimum age is 18. Maximum weight is 20 stone. Minimum height is 4'10'', maximum 6'4''. A full British or international manual driving licence held for at least 12 months must be 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 time driving the Ferrari. Please arrive 30 minutes in advance of the booked time to ensure a prompt start.
