We really like this Driving Thrills Experience located in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
This Formula F1000 driving experience is a must for motor racing fanatics, as these are the fastest accelerating single-seaters in the country! Kick off with a briefing which covers safety and driving techniques, then hop into the passenger seat of a sports car for three familiarisation laps to get acquainted with the twists and turns of the track. Next hold on tight for a blistering high-speed passenger ride. Then it’s time for the main event. Slide behind the wheel of the incredible Formula F1000 single-seater, get harnessed up and set off for ten mind-blowing laps round the circuit. With a 0 to 100 mph time of just 4.75 seconds aligned with sensational grip and handling, this car will take your breath away. Are you ready?
Available to book from January 2018. Several weekdays per month throughout the year. Saturday mornings are available for an additional £39 when booking.
Driving may 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.
