    Anyone know where to rent a racing car?

    An odd request i know but i'm looking for a different stag-do experience than the usual Prague moral-tester.

    Looking to rent and race for just about any type of racing, for a 1 day event. Can't be ridiculously expensive as there may be a few of us.

    Anyone know of anything by any chance?

    Thanks kindly

    I think you might struggle to find someone who'll allow a stag party to rent a load of racing cars and blast around a track, unless you have a racing licence anyway. Obviously I'm not suggesting you're loonies, I'm sure you get what I mean! Karting is probably your best bet and TBH allows for much closer and more enjoyable racing amongst friends.

    Theres only 2/3 of us that would end up doing it. And we're responsible guys :thumbsup:

    Karting is brilliant racing but i always win. The chaps i race with claim its because i'm the lightest but know its all down to talent :-D

    Keen to try something "full size"

    I guess it depends on if you actually want to race, or just have a go. As I said there will be very few places you can participate in an actual race without a MSA licence, otherwise the experience days are your best bet.

    Stock-cars/banger racing?

    yup, even that! You'd be surprised how well regulated racing is in the UK, most circuits will allow armatures on for 'track days' but they're very strict about racing and will kick you off if they think you're being competitive in anything other than lap-times, otherwise to race you're looking at permission from the circuit or joining a league, both of which will require a licence.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, I've just looked in to it before and without a licence, Karting is your best head-to-head option.

    My local outdoor Karting place has a fleet of gas-powered Karts which will get you up to 80mph (although I seriously doubt thats possible on their track), thats the fastest I've been in by a long shot and they really really shift!

    just looked them up, they're '390cc Sodi Thunderkarts'

    :thumbsup:

    If you're looking to do a track day event, there are some compaies which also rent out a car for the day, but it isn't cheap. Take a look at ]Bookatrack's website - though I'd recommend you also get some tuition if you select a Caterham. Their trackdays are very well organised, unlike some places where it seems just dangerous!!
