McLaren 570S and Porsche Driving at Thruxton
A unique chance to test out the best of British and German engineering at the rapid Thruxton circuit. This unforgettable experience begins with a briefing from a senior instructor to ensure drivers get the most from this double supercar drive. Then hop in for three familiarisation laps, as an instructor demonstrates racing lines. After that, it's time to take the wheel. Start in the brand new Porsche Cayman, with three exhilarating laps of the 2.4 mile circuit, before slipping into the comfy racing seats of the McLaren 570S and enjoying a further three laps. The second fastest car ever tested on Top Gear, boasting a V8 twin turbo, it's not just a pretty face - it's also incredibly fun to drive and will take your breath away.
