Drive a turbo-charged Nissan GT-R a further six miles
Take home a commemorative certificate
Experience the Porsche 996 or 997 versions of the 911 and the Nissan GT-R to find out first-hand what makes both these cars so special. The Porsche 911 is one of the world's most iconic and stunning sports cars, whilst the GT-R is the UK's fastest car in its range, with a top speed of 195 mph and an acceleration rate of 62 mph in just 3.5 seconds. Begin with an instructors's briefing on driving techniques and two training laps, with them driving a performance car to teach you important racing lines on the track at Lydden Hill in Kent. Next, grab the wheel of the Porsche yourself for six sensational miles before hopping into the Nissan GT-R for a further six miles of driving action. Finish with a driving assessment and certificate presentation.
