An opportunity to test supercars from two of the world's best manufacturers is something too good to miss. Book a Ferrari versus Aston Martin experience at Stafford Activity Centre and experience the phenomenal acceleration of the Ferrari 355, 430 or 575, followed by the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Feel like a superstar in a beautifully crafted Ferrari, and re-enact childhood James Bond fantasies in a spine-tingling Aston Martin, that merges power and performance with a classic design for an idyllic drive. Drive for over six miles around the mile-long Stafford Activity Centre track in each car. Complete the drive with a debrief analysis and driver certificate as a memento.
Runs around four times a month, and can be on a Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday or Thursday. The circuit is closed from early December to mid-January.
Maximum weight is 18 stone and maximum height is 6'6''. A full British or international manual licence must be produced on the day to guarantee participation.
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 up to four hours at the venue, including driving time (6.6 miles in each car). Please be aware that sessions start from 8am and sessions booked between 11am - 3pm incur a £10 charge. Please arrive a few minutes early for 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 are likely to be other vehicles on the track at the same time.
Spectators are welcome and each one is entitled to a free 4x4 off road passenger ride. Other extra (chargable) drives and passenger rides are available on the day, subject to availability.
Dress comfortably (and warmly in winter) with trousers, long sleeves and narrow, flat-soled shoes to negotiate pedals that are close together. A helmet is provided.
From 7.45am - 5.45pm a free minibus operates every 30 minutes between Stafford train station and the Stafford Activity Centre. Participants who choose this greener way to travel receive a £10 voucher and spectators a £5 voucher to spend on-site.
