There’s nothing quite like the thrill of racing. You can put yourself in the driver’s seat of a V8 supercar and take to a real race track with a driving experience at Eastern Creek in Sydney. Choose from a range of exhilarating V8 racing and V8 hot laps experiences.
What to expect on your first V8 experiences Sydney?
You’ll start your V8 race car driving day with registration, so make sure to bring along your driving licence and booking confirmation. Then it’s on to the all-important pre-drive tuition with professional racing driver. This covers details such as braking points, apexes and overtaking procedure. Although you’re not taking part in a race, overtaking is common and all part of the fun!
There will also be a discussion about safety and track awareness, as well as the opportunity for you to ask any questions. The racing drivers at the track want you to feel completely comfortable before your V8 driving experience, and you’re sure to enjoy putting the theory in to practice more that way.
Once you’re familiar with the theory you’ll head to the pit lane, where you'll be supplied with racing overalls and helmet.
Fully kitted up and looking the part, it’s time to get strapped in to driving seat and put the pedal to the metal! To help you drive to the very best of your abilities (in terms of both speed and safety) your personal instructor will coach you via the intercom during the session.
Driving a V8 race car is an incredible feeling, with exhilarating acceleration, superb control, breathtaking speed and an engine roar that can only really be appreciated from inside these customised race cars. And, if you choose an experience with hot laps, prepare to be blown away at the sheer speed the professional race driver manages at full throttle. These cars are capable of reaching speeds of up to 300km/ph!
Reception at the Sydney Motorsport Park offers free tea and coffee on the day, and if you or anyone coming along with you gets hungry, you can buy light meal at the canteen on racedays.
What is the best V8 experiences Sydney package to buy?
There are a variety of V8 experiences to choose from, so it’s worth thinking about whether you want to be able to get behind the wheel yourself (or leave it to a professional) and buy hot laps. It’s also worth considering the number of laps you’d like to do. If you’ve got a real need for speed and want to make the very most of your day at the track, you might want to select the 11 Lap Combo, which gives you 8 laps at the wheel and 3 laps at the blistering pace only a pro race driver can achieve. Alternatively, if you just want a taster of what these supercars are capable of, then how about 3 laps of performance racing at Eastern Creek with a professional race driver at the wheel? Feel the g-force and be amazed!
