Austin Healey Driving Thrill and Hot Ride
Regarded by many as the archetypal British sports car, it's not hard to see why the stunning Austin Healey 3000 is so fondly regarded by motoring enthusiasts of all ages, and this is your chance to drive it. Following a safety briefing, receive a demo lap around the track and get familiarised with racing lines and driving techniques in preparation for the main event. Once ready, get behind the wheel of the charming Austin Healey 3000 for six adrenaline-fuelled laps of Heyford Park's circuit. To finish, hold on tight as a professional instructor takes the wheel of a hot hatch to drive you around the circuit at spine-tingling speeds.
