Hints and tips

I always tell my friends to go for either the Single Seater Experience or the Rally Experience. The Silverstone Single Seater experience will give you much better understanding of the skill set required to drive and race an open cockpit, open wheeled Formula racing car. And the Rally experience, even for a professional racing driver, is something new and challenging.

Racing Memory

My favourite race circuit is Monza in Italy – the history of the venue makes it a very special place to race. And my top three racing drivers of all time are Tazio Nuvolari, Ayrton Senna and Gilles Villeneuve – because of his flamboyant style.
