Formula Challenge V8 racecars
Are you Holden hero, a Ford Fanatic or just someone who likes V8's?
Come and get into one of our race prepared V8's and feel the thrill and excitement of taking to a race track.
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 laptime as proof that it wasn't just a dream.
Formula Challenge Single Seater Racecars
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 using the F1-style paddles on the steering wheel, 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.
