Drive an Aston Martin Vantage or DB9, Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari F430 and Porsche 996
Six miles in each car, then conclude with a certificate
Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martin - drive all four fabulous European supercars around the Kent track at Lydden Hill. Kick off with an introductory briefing on high-speed driving techniques, followed by two demonstration laps in a performance car, driven by the instructor. Then it's time to take control of each of the supercars: the stunning Aston Martin V8 Vantage or DB9, the sleek Ferrari F430, the ferocious Lamborghini Gallardo and the phenomenal rear-engine Porsche 911 - four cars which represent the pinnacle of performance engineering. Drive six miles in each one and then receive a special certificate to take home.
