We really like this Experience located handily in Bicester, Oxfordshire.
This exciting double classic car driving day at Heyford Park is sure to put a smile on the face of any motoring fan. Choose two from a list of iconic beauties: a Jaguar E-Type, classic Porsche 911, Austin Healey, V8 Mustang or 1970s Mini Cooper S. Start off with a safety briefing with a professional instructor, before being driven around the mile long circuit to learn about driving techniques and braking points. Then get behind the wheel of each of your chosen classics for three exhilarating miles in each, and try to decide which is your favourite. To finish strap in for a high-speed passenger ride in a hot hatch, driven by a professional. Exhilarating!
At least one Friday per month (or choose to pay an extra £25 for a weekend date).
Driving might be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow, ice, heavy rain or high winds) which would make driving at speed dangerous. Please call the venue (if in any doubt).
