Silverstone driving experiences: top trumps

Silverstone is best known for hosting some of the biggest events on the British motor racing calendar, such as the F1 British Grand Prix, the MotoGP British Grand Prix and the penultimate round of the British Touring Car Championship. But did you know a huge selection of driving experiences are also available at the circuit? 

Whether you’re into our roaring supercars, ultra-grippy single seaters or even if drifting is more your speed, there’s something for everyone in Silverstone’s driving experiences line-up. Here, we’ll take you through the key information for each of our adrenaline-inducing track weapons.


Formula Single Seater A fast, aerodynamically enhanced, bona fide racing car, the Formula Single Seater is the ultimate choice for those looking to pull some serious Gs. 0-60mph is achieved in just under five seconds and will continue on until you’re nudging 150mph, when exposed to the elements, that’s a potent combination that makes you feel like a real F1 driver. That is only enhanced further by the car’s electrifying handling, responsive manual racing gearbox and the sensation of running mere inches from the ground. Driven around the Stowe Circuit, this is a surreal experience for any motorsport fanatic.

McLaren 620RBased on the all-conquering 570S GT4 race car, the McLaren 620R is not only the fastest, but the most track-focused car in the Silverstone line-up.
