Nothing shakes the body like the roar of a Supercar and gets the blood pumping more than a driving session in a race-prepared Holden Commodore or Ford Falcon around a race track.
Nothing shakes the body like the roar of a V8 Supercar, and nothing stirs the soul more than a driving session in a race-prepared V8 Holden Commodore or Ford Falcon around a race track.
The V8 Supercars Official Driving Experience begins with a briefing conducted by experienced drivers, during observation laps of the track driven by your instructor. Safety and track awareness will also be discussed.
Then it's time to let loose your inner revhead during a session of real life V8 driving action. Each driver does 5 laps (at 2.1km per lap) behind the wheel of their V8 Commodore or Falcon - 5 seriously quick V8 laps that you're not likely to forget for a very long time.
The circuit is home to Paul Morris’ V8 Supercar workshop and has a clubhouse packed with racing memorabilia. If you're lucky you may bump into a big name driver or two.
Drivers can access an online leaderboard so now you can show off your lap time to your mates after your experience, and compare your lap time to the professionals that have also been around the track.
A fleet of Commodores and Falcons have been purpose-built onsite by Paul Morris Motorsports. The vehicles are presented in a selection of V8 Supercar team liveries. All vehicles are equipped with a safety roll cage, racing seats and harnesses, full race aero kits, quick-shift gearboxes, V8 Supercar-like suspension and slick racing tyres.
The V8 Supercars Official Driving Experience, located at the Performance Driving Centre and owned by V8 Supercar driver and team owner, Paul Morris, is located just 30 minutes from both Gold Coast and Brisbane and is the first and only performance driving centre in Australia to be officially endorsed by V8 Supercars.
Available Thursday to Saturday from 9am - 4pm
Excellent fun, ended up purchasing an additional 6 laps and 2 hot laps on the day. Staff was excellent and would happily go again.
Fantastic experience really enjoyable great instructor and kept smiling all day. A great present and will definitely go again.
I thoroughly enjoyed my Self-drive laps as well as the Hot Lap with Steve. He was informative and encouraging me to go better. Very, very happy with the day.
A great experience. Very enjoyable. Looking to do it again when i can afford it
I had the best ever ride. I didn't want to get out of the car. The ride was so good. The track was amazing. The staff very friendly and welcoming. The experience was fun and effortless. Thank you for a awesome time.
It was for my brothers 60th Birthday he lives on the Gold Coast and I live in Melbourne and he loved it best present ever so thank you sooo much. I have also done it in Melbourne again fantastic
Mark, my instructor, was very good from the moment I met him. He made me feel relaxed and calm. His explanation of the course was good.
My sister and I gave a 5 lap, self drive to my Mum for her 70th birthday. All the staff at the motorplex were so lovely. We had a nightmare journey getting there due to roads being closed because of the floods weeks earlier, but just gave them a call to tell them we were running behind and they were so accommodating. The guys that instructed and took my Mum out were such nice blokes, didn't patronise her and she had an amazing time. I could not recommend this experience highly enough and not just for the guys. Judging on how buzzed my Mum was after the experience I'm going to be heading back there myself to give it a go in the near future. Big thanks to everyone at the Motorplex for making it such a great day for my Mum.
My husband completed 11 laps and absolutely loved it. Think he's now hooked and can't wait to do again??
