Drive the awesome new Nissan GT-R and either the Aston Martin V8 Vantage or DB9. Aston Martin's are beautifully crafted modern classics with awesome 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 a top speed of 195 mph. Kick off with a briefing on driving techniques, then the ARDS instructor drives for two demonstration laps in a performance car so that you can learn the racing lines. Next, take the wheel of either the Aston Martin V8 Vantage or DB9 for four laps around the 1.8 mile long track. Then step into the Nissan GT-R for a further four laps. There's a certificate to take home, show your friends!
