Race Car Experience

The ultimate Race Car experience.

Introducing the BRAND NEW Drive Silverstone Race Car experience – feel like a real racing driver at the Home of the British Grand Prix!

We’ll ease you in gently with a demonstration lap from one of our professional instructors before teaching you the racing lines in our exquisite BMW M2’s.

Then it’s time to put your newly found skills to the test and go it alone in our Formula Silverstone Single-Seaters. These light, fast, aerodynamic racing cars have incredible grip and astonishing speed – you’ll never look at Formula 1® drivers the same way again.

Morning sessions (08:25, 09:35) will be available from £219.00.
Sessions from 10:45 onwards, will be available from £239.00.
