And there’s no experience better than the brand new Ultimate Driving Day. It’s the perfect opportunity to test your skills on the iconic circuit which is now home to the Formula 1 Rolex British Grand Prix, one of the greatest races in the world.

Drivers’ can expect an adrenalin-fuelled day behind the wheel of the Magnificent 7’ – you will be driving 7 high-performance cars – and a competitive day of driving with 6 teams of 12 taking part on each day.

The journey will begin in the British Racing Driver’s Clubhouse, one of the most exclusive ‘invite only’ racing drivers clubs in the world, where you can soak up the ambience and impressive surroundings of this great venue like all the racing greats past and present have.

Then, after the briefing, it’s time to start your engines, hear the roar and let the challenge commence!

This experience is perfect for Corporate Days and groups – you can take part in your own team of 12 or join one of our ready made teams to do battle and afford yourself the coveted title of the 2018 Silverstone Ultimate Driver.
