If you have always wanted the challenge of driving a real CAMS-approved V8 Race Car around a real V8 race track then this is just for you!
Nothing shakes the body like the roar of a V8 race car, and nothing stirs the soul more than a session of hot laps in a track-prepared V8 six-speed Commodore or Monaro around Launceston's V8 race track, Symmons Plains Raceway.
The V8 drive day begins with a briefing conducted by experienced race drivers. During pre-drive tuition, your driver will explain techniques on cornering, apexes and exiting, efficient braking and acceleration, steering, gear changes and general car control. Safety and track awareness will also be discussed. There's plenty of time to ask questions so you'll feel completely comfortable before putting V8 race car theory into practice.
Then it's time to let loose your inner revhead during a session of real life V8 driving action. Each driver does six full-pelt laps behind the wheel of their V8 Commodore or Monaro. Then, just when you reckon you can drive a V8 like Mark Skaife, your experienced race driver will take control again for three more seriously quick V8 hot laps that you're not likely to forget for a very long time.
Allow up to 3hrs for your experience.
Loved the whole experience
A great day one to remember will recommend it as a gift .
A huge thanks to George, a great instructor who gets the best out of you. My face is still sore from not being able to wipe the smile of my face! I will be back for another go in November, hopefully with George again. I strongly recommend the ten laps, still its all over too quick!
My daughter purchases this experience for me for Xmas and it was fully siiiiicccckkkkk! The weather was perfect and everything was very well organised. Would definitely do it again.
Highly recommend the drive and ride. Also recommend that you upgrade to the 10 laps when you get there.
