Go for a spin in the commanding McLaren MP4-12C at Leicestershire's Prestwold circuit, a driving experience which is sure to satisfy any avid supercar fanatic! Kick off with a welcome introduction and safety discussion before jumping into the passenger seat of a hot hatch for two demonstration laps courtesy of a qualified instructor. After getting to grips with essential racing lines and track driving techniques it's time for the fun to start - climb behind the wheel of the beastly 592 bhp McLaren and take it four jaw-dropping laps, negotiating every bend, straight, twist and turn of Prestwold's challenging circuit. At the end of the experience, receive a commemorative driving certificate.
At least two weekend dates per month, as well as occasional weekdays. The circuit is closed from early December to mid-January.
Minimum height is 5', maximum is 6'5''. Maximum weight is 19 stone. A full British or international manual driving licence must be produced on the day in order to participate.
Driving may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. high winds, ice or heavy rain) which would make driving at speed dangerous. The venue will get in touch if the experience is cancelled for any reason.
Expect to be at the circuit for around one hour, including a briefing, driving laps (driving time is up to ten minutes in total) and hot lap. Please arrive one hour 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 although briefings may be shared. During familiarisation laps in the hot hatch, share the car with up to three other participants as well as the instructor.
Spectators are welcome. Children must be closely supervised at all times and dogs are not permitted.
Wear trousers, a long-sleeved shirt and flat-soled shoes. A safety helmet is provided.
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.
