GUEST DRIVES THE PORSCHE CAYMAN
Three laps driving the Porsche Cayman. Nowhere else in the UK will you drive the class leading sports car as your introduction to a driving experience. With 3 laps behind the wheel you'll not only have a huge smile on your face but be ready to take on the next car, no doubt feeling like the next Lewis Hamilton
GUEST DRIVES THE FERRARI 458 SPIDER
The Ferrari 458 Spider is a V8 engine supercar from Ferrari. They've applied all their technical knowhow from the F1 team and applied it to this car. This model also comes with all the Speciale options. The result is stunning. Seated in the drivers seat you feel embraced by the car. The steering wheel could be straight from Vettels F1 car
GUEST DRIVES THE MCLAREN 570S
The McLaren 570S is stunning. The design is completely different from any of the other supercars in our driving experience fleet. The 570S isn't just nice to look at though. Out on track the twin turbo V8 engine (the same engine used in McLarens P1) delivers seemingly endless acceleration. The chassis is more than up to the job of keeping everything in check, especially around the long sweeping corners at Thruxton.
ABOUT THE SUPERCAR DUO DRIVING EXPERIENCE

Ferrari comes to the table with the Ferrari 458 Spider, a V8 mid-engine rear wheel drive supercar with all of Ferrari's F1 knowhow. McLaren arrives with the stunning McLaren 570S, fitted with a smaller V8 but this one comes with a turbo.

As part of the Supercar Duo driving experience, guest will have a chance to learn the race circuit with an ARDS qualified race instructor initially as a passenger and then driving the Porsche Cayman. It's a fantastic sports car that out performs other more expensive machinery. A great car that gives the driver lots confidence behind the wheel.
