A Ferrari driving experience certificate to take home
If your child has dreamt of being the next Lewis Hamilton, give them the chance to get into the driving seat of a Ferrari 430. With expert tuition by an ARDS (Association of Racing Drivers School) qualified driving instructor and a dual-controlled vehicle, they'll be in safe hands taking on the tantalising twists of the mile long Stafford race track. The experience kicks off with a welcome briefing. Then it's time to take the wheel of the stunning Ferrari 430, a car most people only dream of driving. Drive over six miles of the circuit in this Italian beauty. At the end of the day each youngster will receive a certificate, a fitting souvenir of this amazing Ferrari driving experience!
Runs on selected weekdays throughout the school holidays. The circuit is closed from early December to mid-January.
Min height is 4'10'', max is 6'4''. Max weight is 17 stone. Min age is 12, max is 16 and all participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Participants must not hold a driving licence (inc. provisional).
Driving might 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 Monday - Friday (if in any doubt).
Expect to be at the circuit for around one hour (6.6 miles driving). Please be aware that sessions start from 8am and sessions booked between 11am - 3pm incur a £10 charge. Please arrive a few minutes early to ensure a prompt start.
