Test drive a bonafide motor racing marvel with this high-octane McLaren driving experience in North Yorkshire - a dream come true for any petrol head! Kick off with a welcome introduction and run down on safety before jumping into the passenger seat of a hot hatch for two demonstration laps from a professional instructor. Once familiar with essential racing lines and track handling techniques it's time to get things going - take the wheel of the commanding 592 bhp McLaren MP4-12C and put the pedal to the metal for four adrenaline-pumping laps of the challenging Elvington Circuit to experience its rapid pace and superior capabilities first-hand. At the end, take home a special driving certificate to remember the experience by.
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.
