Ape (pronounced ap-ay) racing - exclusive experience to Red Letter Days
As seen in Top Gear magazine
A thrilling race not for the faint of heart
Race in teams of four around a 1 kilometre track with trophies for the winners
Try the crazy thrill of Piaggio Ape racing in Hertfordshire, exclusive to Red Letter Days and seen in Top Gear magazine. The three wheeled vehicles have been Italian style icons since 1949 and for this experience, they've been upgraded to racing spec with added stabilisers. After an introduction and instruction on how to drive the Ape, split into teams of four and have 15 minutes of practice laps to decide qualifying positions. Then it's time to race! With a proper Le Mans start, race across the track, jump in the right Ape, get the engine started and off you go! During the 90 minute race, decide on a driving strategy with pit stops to switch drivers. Race on a 1 kilometre outdoor circuit and the top three teams are rewarded with a trophy.
