Enjoy six miles of driving action in an iconic Ferrari
Take a sleek Aston Martin for a further six miles
Receive a commemorative certificate to take home
Take control of two world-class racing giants in one thrilling session with this Ferrari versus Aston Martin experience at Lydden Hill in Kent. The astounding Aston Martin and the ferocious Ferrari have very different but equally incredible capabilities and provide the kind of performance and pace sure to satisfy even the most hardened of petrol heads. Following a safety briefing, receive two training laps to learn all about racing lines and track handling techniques. Then, once revved up and ready to go, grab the wheel of either the Ferrari 355, 360 or 430 for six sensational miles of driving action, followed by a further six miles in the Aston Martin DB9 or V8 Vantage. Finish with a driving assessment and take home a certificate.
