We really like this Driving Thrills Experience located handily in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
Come to Hertfordshire and slide behind the wheel of one of the most desirable supercars around – a masterpiece of Italian engineering, the Lamborghini Gallardo. Following registration, the experience starts with a theory based briefing with your instructor, covering performance track driving. Next, jump into the passenger seat of a track prepared sports car for three demo laps and a high-speed passenger lap. Finally, it’s time for the big one – take control of the four wheel drive 520bhp Lamborghini Gallardo and drive 10 breathtaking laps. Feeling brave? For an extra £49 you can even have a nitrous fitted, taking the power to a whopping 750bhp! Are you ready to tame the fighting bull?
Runs on 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.
Lasts around an hour and a half including a briefing, three demo laps, a high speed passenger lap and 10 laps driving the Lamborghini.
Briefings are held in groups. The driving time is held on a one-to-one basis with a qualified instructor. There may be other cars on the track at the same time.
Spectators are welcome and there are cafe facilities on-site. Please note that animals are not allowed at the circuit, with the exception of guide dogs.
Dress comfortably and wear trainers or flat-soled shoes. A helmet is provided.
Minimum age is 17. Minimum height is 5’2”, maximum is 6’4”. Maximum weight is 20 stone. To guarantee participation, a full manual driving licence must be produced on the day.
If you would like to drive the Lamborghini with the nitrous fitted, this is an additional £49 and is payable directly to the venue on the day. The circuit is one kilometre long. When booking expect to be offered the choice of buying a collision damage waiver at £20 to £40 additional charge. Please note there is no obligation to purchase this optional waiver.
