If you have always wanted the challenge of driving a real V8 6-speed manual Commodore around a real V8 race track then this is just for you!
The extreme roar and horsepower of a V8 race car is something you need to experience for yourself, so hit the track at Sandown Raceway for an unforgettable session of driving and hot laps. You’ll take on four laps driving around Melbourne’s fast and famous National Circuit at Sandown Raceway, before jumping in the passenger seat for three laps with a real race car driver.
Your V8 drive day kicks off with a safety briefing and pre-drive tuition session with experienced race drivers. They’ll go over techniques on cornering, apexes and exiting, efficient braking and acceleration, steering, gear changes and general car control, as well as safety and track awareness. You’ll have time to ask any questions and make sure you feel comfortable taking the wheel and taking on the track in a V8 race car.
When the time comes, you can put the pedal to the metal and really see what the V8 car can do as you drive four full-pelt laps around the Sandown Raceway circuit. It’s an epic 3.1km circuit with 13 corners, and long straights for you to reach top speeds. Then hop into the passenger seat for three hot laps with an experienced race driver showing you how the professionals do it!
