Motor Racing with Tiff Needell at Thruxton
Tiff Needell's appearances on Top Gear and 5th Gear have made it clear that he is the master at sliding fast cars sideways around the track. This is an amazing chance to experience Tiff's legendary car control first-hand from the passenger seat of a BMW M4, whilst also experiencing some incredible driving yourself. After two demo laps by an instructor, take the wheel of a Porsche Cayman for three laps of Thruxton's 2.4 mile circuit, before driving a Formula Renault single-seater for five exhilarating laps. Then hold on tight as Tiff takes you for three high-speed laps, pushing the BMW to its absolute limits. With the thrilling drives over, take home an HD DVD of the laps with Tiff.
