We really like this Driving Thrills Experience near Bicester, Oxfordshire.
This Formula Renault driving experience is just about as close as you can get to being a real racing driver without having to put in years of training, and is a must for any true motor racing fan. Kick off with a briefing from an instructor before getting low down and close to the floor when you slide into the sleek single-seater beauty. This two litre rocket has 190 bhp with breathtaking acceleration, is capable of going from 0 – 100 in under six seconds and its high power low weight brakes can stop the car dead. Go all out for 12 thrilling laps around the 1km track in Oxfordshire. It’s time to experience the raw exhilaration of brute power!
At least two dates per month throughout the year.
Driving is only ever cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow or ice) which would make driving at speed dangerous.

Briefings are held in groups. Expect to share the experience with approximately 30 participants and several other cars out on the track.
