This is a fantastic chance to drive one of the most iconic racing cars ever built – the magnificent Ford GT40. Winner of Le Mans 24 hour race a staggering four times in a row, this version is based on the one driven by Steve McQueen in the classic movie ‘Le Mans’. Powered by a monstrous V8 engine, these 1960s racing cars produce over 500 bhp. Kick things off with a safety briefing before hitting the track for some serious driving action. Take the wheel of the GT40 for three adrenaline-pumping laps, with an instructor in the passenger seat to offer tips and encouragement throughout. Prepare to drive a very special car indeed!
