Full briefing and demo laps driven by a qualified instructor
Take the driving seat of either the Aston Martin V8 Vantage or DB9
Drive the phenomenal Nissan GT-R next
End with a driving assessment and certificate presentation
Drive one of two sleek Aston Martins - the V8 Vantage or the DB9 - as well as the phenomenally quick Nissan GT-R. The Aston Martins are both beautifully-crafted modern classics with awesome power and superb handling. The Nissan, meanwhile, is a bit of a monster; with 4WD, a 3.8 litre V6 engine and two turbochargers, it goes from 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds with a phenomenal top speed of 195 mph. Kick off with a briefing on driving techniques, followed by two demo laps with the instructor driving. Then drive either the Aston Martin V8 Vantage or DB9 for six miles, and after a break, step into the Nissan GT-R for six more miles. Driving is assessed and there is also a certificate as a memento to take home.
Availability varies between the venues. We recommend allowing at least several weeks booking notice for this popular experience.

Spectators are welcome. Children must be closely supervised at all times. Dogs are not permitted.
