I have received an e-mail as below. It is not live yet, but will be on 8th April.

Time to find out what Corsa VXR performance feel like - book your VXR experience now!

We told you there was something to look forward to and it’s official - tickets to the VXR Track Experience will go on sale on 8th April 2015 from 12:00.

This is your chance to drive the New Corsa VXR, and in addition the Astra VXR and Insignia VXR, around a track under the expert tuition of an ARDS qualified instructor.

The dates are as follows:

23rd, 24th and 25th June @ Thruxton Circuit, Andover, Hampshire

21st and 22nd July @ Croft Circuit, Darlington, North Yorkshire

And there will be six sessions per day:

07:30 – 10:00

08:45 – 11:15

10:00 – 12:30

11:40 – 14:10

12:55 – 15:25

14:10 – 16:40

As tickets are limited, you will be able to book two people for one session. Tickets cost £35 per person and include a one hour track session plus breakfast or lunch, depending on the time of day.

VXR Power Events always sell out quickly so make sure you visit vxrpowerevents.co.uk on 8th April 2015 to book your place on this epic VXR track session.

Sadly both venues are 3 hours from West Midlands so I have to give it a pass

Can you take your own VXR and race round the track.

What do you think?
Your insurance won't cover you and they certainly not going to cover you.

Why would you want to ruin your engine, brakes and tyres? Do it at their expense for £35!

OP is a fool, this will sell out in minutes now

And you are a self-focused moron who cannot see others benefit from deals

of you go onto vxr online as well alot of people will do it as well so if it's going to sell out it will either way

Thanks for the heads up. I wonder if there is a limit on attending two sessions in one day?

Did this previous years at Oulton and Silverstone. Track time goes quick but well worth it for the money if either isn't too far away

You sign a waiver on track days anyway so unless you buy specialist track insurance (which nobody seems to) then you won't be insured.

I was about to say "why would it ruin your engine?", then I realised it's a "performance" Vauxhall so you're lucky if the damn thing copes with normal street use.
(Speaking as an ex owner with experience)

Ta OP.

Don't think this will get voted hot - despite it being voted hot in previous years and my vote today.

Shame really as it looks like a great deal.

I will vote it hot tomorrow, after I've booked 2 places. The less publicised this is between now and then, the better!

What's the minimum age?

i think it's 21, and you have to have had a full license for at least 12 months

How many laps do you get?

1 hours worth. You have a lap with a driver to show you how fast you can go, and then they operate a taxi rank set up i.e. jump into the next available car. You do 2 laps then have to get out and join the Q depending which car you want to drive, Corsa, Astra or Insignia. The Insignias were always free when I went to Oulton Park, the Astras were first choice.

You can only book 1 session for up to 2 people across all the dates.

But what if person A books a session for 2 people (Person A and Person B) and person B books a session for 2 people (Person B and Person A)

I duno, I'm only going off the info provided by site admins and what's available on the website. I think the point of these events is to offer the experience to as many people as possible because it's a bit of a promo event? You'd possibly be refused entry for the second event on the same say as they'd already have your details from the morning session? I duno

According to the forum:

No this is not allowed
duplicate bookings will be removed

Were there more venues last year?
We did thruxton and it was awesome!
Hoping to get on this year

Page is dead.... either updating or it's been hammered !

Broked

It works - I just booked - don't keep refreshing the pages. Just click once and wait.

Managed to book, eventually. Been about 15 minutes and not had a confirmation email yet though...

Me neither but printed off receipt as PDF so at least got a reference number. I should imagine its just the server overloaded and emails will come later.

I have a screenshot so that will have to do for now. Somewhat worryingly, when I re-opened the tab with my order confirmation on, a new order number appeared so I can only assume that I've been charged twice and the system has somehow created 2 bookings for me. I tried to call but no answer so have emailed. Hopfully they don't think I've tried to book 2 sessions at the same time for the same people!

You have to be 21 and have held your licence for a year on the day of the event. I'm 20 and drive a similar performance car (2012 focus ST) but I guess this isn't for me.

Booked and got confirmation email.
Had problems last year with hotmail. Had to ring up and change email to my yahoo one.

Check your junk mail if you are with hotmail, that's where my confirmation email was hiding

I'm in, this event is great value.

me and 2 others got tickets all for the same session, it was a pain but we got there in the end.

can't wait

Tickets bought - bargain! Thanks OP!

Good deal, did it a few years ago.

Any idea if this is to be extended to Oulton Park?

Power haha

The arseh01es have charged me twice and are bordering on impossible to contact.
