Hop in the driving seat of one of the most renowned supercars of today with this Nissan GT-R thrill. Nicknamed Godzilla, the GT-R is the successor to the Skyline GT-R and boasts four-wheel drive, a twin-turbo six cylinder engine and displays likened to that of a Playstation game. Begin the experience with a thorough briefing, covering track driving and etiquette, before setting off for three demo laps in a track-ready sports car (Evo X, Impreza STi or BMW M3), followed by a thrilling high-speed passenger lap. Once familiarised with basic racing lines, take to the wheel of the Nissan GT-R for ten exhilarating laps with one to one professional instruction. A high boost upgrade is available for an additional fee, raising the BHP from 650 to 1000!


Several weekdays per month throughout the year. Saturday mornings are available for an additional £39 when booking.
