Driving a Ferrari is an experience that many of us dream of. Make it a reality by driving one of the most desirable marques in the world at Lydden Hill in Kent and prepare to be rendered speechless on the track in this breathtaking Maranello beauty. Receive a short briefing from a qualified instructor who drives first for two laps of the circuit in a hot hatch to demonstrate driving techniques and racing lines. Then personally take the wheel to go for six miles in either a Ferrari 355, 360 or 430 - each car is capable of over 170 mph. The circuit is plenty long enough to put this amazing car through its paces and get the bug. After driving for six miles, receive a commemorative certificate to take home.
Runs at least one Friday or Saturday every two months throughout the year. As availability is limited, please book at least three months in advance for this popular experience.
Minimum height is 5'2'', maximum is 6'6''. Maximum weight is 18 stone. A full British or international manual driving licence held for at least 12 months must be brought 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 makes contact if the experience is cancelled for any reason.
Expect to be at the circuit for between half an hour to an hour, including a briefing and driving laps (driving time is up to 10 minutes in total). Please arrive 45 minutes in advance of the booked time.
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 two other participants as well as an instructor.
Spectators are welcome. Children must be closely supervised at all times. The venue offers good facilities for spectators and drivers. Pets are not allowed.
Wear trousers, a long-sleeved shirt and flat-soled shoes. A helmet and any special equipment is provided.
The model of Ferrari driven is confirmed on the day. 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.
