Want to experience a day in the life of a V8 Driver? Get behind the wheel of a genuine Ford or Holden V8 Race Car and experience Queensland's premier V8 venue for yourself!
After a driver safety and track briefing encompassing cornering, braking and overtaking etiquette, you'll be introduced to the vehicles and your driving instructors (many of whom are current or ex-V8 Supercar drivers, so you may even meet your hero!).
After your driver's briefing and in-car brief from your instructor, you'll accelerate out of the pits and onto the straight - hold on to the wheel tightly as this is one ride you won't forget! Throughout your drive you'll be in constant contact with your instructor, who will be offering hints and tips on how to get the most of your V8 drive.
You can choose between Ford or Holden on the day. There is a selection of race-prepared V8 Fords & V8 Commodores on offer.
Your Personal Coach will talk you through the following:
1: Sighting Lap: Learn where the track goes and how the camber changes affect the car;
2: Marking Lap: Learn the Braking & Goto points for each corner;
3: Placement Lap: From 2 learn the correct turn-in, apex & exit positions on the track;
4: Stitch Lap: now combine 2 & 3 for a smooth fast lap;
5: Hot lap: this is the stitch lap taken to the next level and you discover what you have learnt;
6: In Lap: bring the car quickly and safely back to the pits using advanced cooling and calming techniques for you and the car.
I had the most awesome time ,and I will be coming back .
loved the V8 supercar drive!! best fun I've had in years!! would definitely recommend it!!
I have issues with Claustrophobia and the team on the day were very accommodating and understanding. They took me through the experience and guided me all the way. Took every effort to make me comfortable and were able to get me started. Once I got driving I forgot all my fears and had a blast. Very impressed with the staff and the whole experience.
Great experience, my second time round and have recommended to many. Only draw back was I booked in for 11:30am and wasn't on the track till about 1pm. To ease the pain we were offered ice blocks and bottled water. Would still book again without hesitation.
Awesome day out
Lot of fun, not scary. Cars are easy to drive, but still raw!
Absolutely the best time. Cheaper than owning a race car, which I have done, and faster. Great job by everyone!!
The v8 experience was fantastic! I would definitely recommend doing it as it is great fun in a safe and controlled environment. The instructors were really helpful with clear instructions on what to do. The team at the v8 experience do a great job, even when it is a 38 degree day (40°+ in the cars). I'll definitely be back in the future. Might try 10 laps next time. ??????
Was a great day, I would recommend it to anyone
Out of all my 18,865 days, this was definitely one of my top 10. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Such a brilliant 50th birthday gift!!
