You don’t have to love motorsport to enjoy V8 hot laps with a professional driver at the wheel (they’re ideal for anyone with a sense of adventure), but if you do these experiences are truly unmissable. Feel the full power of these 450hp supercars as you tear around a race circuit at high speed for the ride of your life. Try hot laps at Symmons Plains, Tasmania.
Do you have to v8 hot lap with a professional race car driver?
Yes. During hot laps a professional race car driver takes the wheel while you enjoy the ride in the passenger seat. You’ll be perfectly positioned to hear the roar of the engine and take in every twist and turn of the track. These six-speed Commodore or Monaro V8 supercars are seriously powerful machines and can accelerate to 100km/h in a matter of seconds. Your driver will push the speedometer to its limit, so hold on tight, this is a journey you’ll never forget.
If your V8 experience includes laps with you driving, an experienced race driver will take the passenger seat. This is partly for safety reasons, but also to make sure you get the most out of the experience. They’ll give you a briefing and run through full course tuition before letting you put it all into practice.
The driver will also be on hand to give you useful advice on everything from braking and gear changes to cornering and apexes. You’ll be impressed at what you’re capable of with a little expert guidance.
