Pedal to the metal time. This is the closest he may ever get to driving a Formula One car, revving up from 0-60mph in just five seconds, with a spin in the single-seater Van Dieman (BHP160 top speed 130mph!).

Single seaters are the closest looking cars you may ever get to driving an actual Formula 1 car. As you sit in the small cockpit you look out towards the start line, you start to build the revs, and when the flag is dropped you drop the clutch and launch down the straight. In a matter of seconds you're taking the corners and barrelling along!

The programme typically involves a welcome on arrival, followed by a briefing. Then it's time to take to the wheel for laps in a performance saloon, where your instructor will demonstrate circuit driving techniques such as taking the correct line on a corner. Next you take the wheel yourself to practice what you have been taught. Then the real action begins: you take a single seater racing car, the ubiquitous Van Dieman, BHP 160 top speed 130 mph, 0 to 60mph - 5 secs, this car is perfectly placed to introduce you to the exhilaration and excitement of racing. Please note you can upgrade your experience to Saturdays at an extra cost, please check on booking.

been to the rockingham oval circuit and that was good fun..went about 2 years ago and paid about £40 (was about £120)...but cars do 145mph
£179 is a joke though.....but i like the fact that an instructor takes you around........my one was just follow my leader
some muppet crashed at about 40mph and another got cold feet at the start and another thought it was a kangaroo race...managed to get i guess flat out or near it

It's worth knowing that you need some light footwear, especially if you have large feet. The pedals, as in all proper sports type cars, are small and close together. So, if you can't wear Sparco then wear something like converse, or plimsoll like shoes that fit close around your feet.

The first time I drove, I ended up having to press the pedals with the sides of my feet to avoid touching two together.
