Individual Driving Experience 

Put yourself in the Drivers Seat!

Experience the Unforgettable Thrill of driving an F1-Style, open-wheel Formula Ford Race Car capable of achieving lap times similar to that of a V8 Supercar, which is significantly faster around the track than a Porsche 911.

Driving a single-seater Formula Ford racing car is unlike anything else. These are real race cars!!!  You'll be strapped into the open cockpit by a six-point racing harness with the quick release steering wheel in front of you.  You'll have the gear stick on your right connected to a 4-speed close ratio, purpose-built racing gearbox.  You're seated only a couple of inches off the ground and you'll know it -- you can feel every bump and vibration as your super-responsive car reacts to every tiny adjustment you make.

Individual Driving Experience

"One of the most challenging and thrilling experiences I’ve had. Being squeezed into the tiny race seat and only centimeters from the ground really added to the excitement. The instructor was great and gave me the confidence to go faster with every lap. Would definitely go back for more!"

Brad L

"What a great day! I cannot believe just how fast those cars can go! It's way too much fun -- way better than a V8. Tim is great and really taught us how to drive those things."

G M

"I was looking for an exciting way to spend my 50th birthday. I wasn't disappointed. The staff, cars supplied and schedule were first class and more than met my expectations. Thanks for giving me a 50th birthday that I will always remember and I'll be back for more in the near future."

Neale B

"Tim and his crew were just so accomodating throughout the day. It was a pleasure to be there."
