A lovely Experience in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
Burn some serious rubber in this exhilarating Porsche 911 GT2 driving thrill and hot ride. Infamously nicknamed the ‘Widow Maker’ thanks to its unrivaled speed and power, the high performance sports car boasts a twin-turbocharged 3.6 litre engine, derived from the Le Mans-winning GT1 race car. The adrenaline pumping experience commences with a welcome and theory based briefing, before drivers are able to get a feel for basic racing lines with three demo laps in a track ready sports car (Evo X, Impreza STi or BMW M3), followed by a mind-blowing high-speed passenger lap. Then end on a high and take to the wheel of the Porsche 911 GT2 for ten thrilling laps, with one to one guidance from a professional.
