  • Description
    Drive a V8 supercar
    • You drive a V8 Race Car for 6 laps AND ride for 3 laps
    • Most powerful 450hp V8 race cars available to drive in Australia!
    • Real race car driver/instructors in the car with you
    • Supercar 6-pot brakes, racing slicks, Bilstein suspension and Racing gearbox handles like a real V8 Supercar

    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 Holden and Fords 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 Holden and Fords. 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.

    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!
