Single-seater racing car driving is massively different to driving a road car. This Formula 1 style racing car positions the driver just inches off the ground, with legs stretched out into the nose, for a unique driving experience. Take to the track after a safety briefing, first of all being driven in an Octavia by the instructor and gain some insight into the racing lines and learn where to brake. When you are ready, proceed to drive the Porsche Cayman for three laps of the 2.4 mile Thruxton circuit before you slide into the Formula Renault single-seater for five exhilarating laps. That's a total of 19 miles driving! End with a high-speed passenger ride with a pro driving an Octavia VRS.

In a Nutshell
  • Full briefing from a qualified instructor
  • Warm up in a Porsche Cayman
  • Drive an F1-style single-seater round Thruxton
