Drive a V8 Race Car  - 10 Laps Taupo

Drive a V8 Race Car - 10 Laps Taupo

Drive a Ford or Holden V8 Race Car around Taupo's International Race Track!

In an experience normally reserved for the professionals, you now have the chance to feel the thrill of driving our V8 race cars

The experience starts by heading into a DVD briefing which runs through the theory of driving on a race track along with the safety aspects of the day. Once the briefing is done, then it's off to the pit lane where the fun starts!!

Your on-track experience starts by getting suited up in our race suit and race boots then into our tuition car for an introduction lap around the circuit with one of our in-car consultants talking you around the track while your in the passenger seat. This will give you an idea of what to expect and what you've got yourself in for!!! And if you want, you can take a spectator along for the ride so they can experience the thrill of being on a racetrack.

Having chosen your favourite, it's now time to drive it! Get strapped into one of our V8's and experience the stunning performance of these cars as you and your professional instructor lap the circuit at speeds you never thought possible you'd get up to.

With your laps complete but your heart still racing, you head back to the pitlane where you receive a certificate complete with your fastest lap time as proof that it wasn't just a dream.


Notes:

  • All products are based on Track 3.  Occasionally when we have to use Track 1 or 2 (over twice as long) you'll get the same drive time or more on the track but you'll only do half the number of laps.
  • These cars do have a clutch so some experience using a clutch is desired. If you can not drive a car with a clutch please give us a call to discuss what your options may be – 07 377 0338

Drive a Single Seater Race Car - 10 laps Taupo

Drive a Formula Challenge Single Seater Race Car around Taupo's International Race Track!

In an experience normally reserved for the professionals, you now have the chance to feel the thrill of driving our single seater  race cars

Designed and raced by us, these cars provide you with a unique experience of what it's like to be driving a Formula 1 or Indy car at Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park.

An experience that will suit both novice and experienced drivers alike, these race cars offer drivers that pure sensation of just you, the track and the car.

You'll start by watching our DVD tuition which explains the basics of driving on a race track and also the tricks to driving these unique race cars. Then you'll move onto the tuition lap where one of our professional drivers will take you and a passenger of your choice for a couple of laps around the track in our familiarization V8 car to learn the lines around the racetrack.

Then it's all down to you!!!

Getting strapped into the Formula Challenge single seater is an experience all on it's own!! As you feel the engine burst into life only inches behind you, your heart starts to race, clutch in and engage first gear, ease off the clutch and your away. You'll be surprised at how easy they are to drive but how fast they are as you make your way onto the track.

Then..... Just as quickly as it started you see the chequered flag and it's time to head back into the pit lane.

And just in case it is all just a blur, you'll receive a certificate with your fastest lap time to take with you.


Please note that although no experience is needed these cars do have a clutch so drivers will have an advantage if they know how to use one.

*NB All products are based on Taupo Track 3.  However occasionally when we have to use Track 1 or 2(over twice as long) you'll get the same drive time or more on the track but you'll only do half the number of laps.



Please note our dates can change at short notice, if this happens we will advise you on other dates available.
