Take full control of the single-seater for 20 minutes
As close as it possibly gets to F1 driving!
For Formula 1 fans looking for a taste of the action, this Formula Ford 1600 single-seater motor racing experience at Anglesey Circuit is the perfect answer. Kick things off with a briefing, before hopping into a sleek single-seater for five familiarisation laps behind a pace car. Once revved up and ready for action, let loose on Anglesey's 1.5 mile international circuit and negotiate your way around its two hairpin bends and four high-speed straights. Experience the astounding racing capabilities such as grip levels, acceleration and lightening changes of direction on this nimble Formula 1 style vehicle out on a great track. After catching some breath, receive a full debrief from a professional instructor, a fitting end to a high-octane driving experience.
Runs on weekdays, at least one date every two months. The circuit is closed from early December to mid-January.
Maximum weight is 18 stone. Minimum height is 5'2'' and maximum height is 6'2''. A full British or international manual licence must be presented 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 at the venue for up to two hours, including familiarisation laps and 20 minutes of full pace single-seater driving time.
