We supply the Formula Ford race cars, helmets, gloves and racing suit. You drive! The day is an excellent opportunity to discover the fun of motor racing. It is an opportunity to meet others who share your interest.
Satisfy your need for speed by taking an open wheel, single-seat racing car for a spin.
Your Formula Ford Race Car Exeprience begins with a session on learning how to operate the controls of the single-seat racing car–the lay-back driving position, the stubby, right hand 4 speed gearshift with non-synchromesh down-changes.
After a short familiarisation session to check out the track layout, it's on to the circuit for some sensational high speed laps to enjoy the sensations of driving an open-wheel racing car for the first time, all the while under the watchful eyes of instructors. As you build up your laps you will develop the feel of the car and the flowing sequence of corners on this brilliant track.
Begin the day with a safety briefing and drive instructions, including explanation of the vehicle, handling tips, braking and turn in points, and the racing line.
Follow this up with driver coaching in a road car, doing sighting laps to familiarise yourself with the track.
Climb behind the wheel of a fully-fledged, single-seat, European-specification Zetec-engine Formula Ford!
Put the pedal to the metal and speed your way around a real racing track!
You get to drive the car – so you get all the thrills!
All safety equipment provided, including helmet, boots, gloves and race suit.
