This junior fun drive is the perfect opportunity for any youngster to gain experience behind the wheel on a circuit before passing their test. Learn the basics of driving from an instructor in a safe and stress-free environment. Drive a dual-controlled Mazda MX-5 and practise essential car control, building up driving confidence in preparation for hitting the circuit. Start the lesson learning driving basics from steering the vehicle to clutch control and braking. Dual controls means the instructor can intervene if necessary, giving comfort to parents watching from the pit lane. For youngsters who pick the skills up with ease, go on to learn parking manoeuvres such as parallel parking and reversing around a corner. It’s time to take the wheel!


Weekdays and Saturday mornings, at least two dates per month throughout the year.
