Then the awesome Nissan GT-R for a further six miles
Take home a certificate as a special memento
Drive the astounding Nissan GT-R and either the Aston Martin V8 Vantage or DB9 in one high-octane session. Aston Martins are beautifully crafted, modern classics with amazing power, phenomenal acceleration and superb handling. The Nissan is the UK's fastest car in its price range, reaching 62 mph in just 3.5 seconds and with a top speed of 195 mph. Start with a briefing on driving techniques, before hopping into the passenger seat of a performance car to learn essential racing lines. Next, take the wheel of either the Aston Martin V8 Vantage or DB9 for six rip-roaring miles of Leeds Raceway. Then, step into the Nissan GT-R for a further six blistering miles. End with a driving assessment and certificate presentation.
At least one Friday, Saturday or Sunday date per month from May to November. We recommend allowing several weeks advance booking notice for this particularly popular experience.
Minimum height is 5'2'', maximum is 6'6''. Maximum weight is 18 stone. A full British or international (both parts) must be presented on the day to ensure participation.
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.

Numbers on the Day
Up to 30 people take part. The briefing is shared with a group. Other than for demonstration laps, all driving is held on a one-to-one basis. There tend to be large numbers taking part at weekends.
Spectators are welcome and a camera will come in handy. The venue offers good facilities for spectators and drivers. Pets are not allowed.
Wear trousers, a long-sleeved shirt and narrow, flat-soled shoes, as the pedals in these cars can be close together. Wear natural fibres like cotton, rather than synthetics like nylon.
All instructors are Association of Racing Drivers Schools (ARDS) qualified. The model of Aston Martin (V8 Vantage or DB9) is confirmed on the day, subject to availability. 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.
