The stunning modern classics that are the Aston Martin V8 Vantage or DB9 – or the futuristic, high-tech Audi R8? Who could possibly make a decision to choose between these legendary vehicles? That’s why this experience offers drivers the chance to drive both marques. Begin with a safety briefing and introduction to the track, to ensure drivers are comfortable before taking the wheel of one of these iconic Aston Martins. Make the most of a full six miles driving around the track and put this car through its paces, before taking the wheel of the Audi R8 for a further six miles. After twelve miles of supercar driving, decide which is king, and receive a memento certificate to take home too.


At least one weekday date each month. There is a £10 upgrade for this venue on booking. Please allow several weeks advance booking notice for this popular experience.


Driving may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions like ice, heavy rain or high winds, when driving at speed might become dangerous. The venue makes contact if the experience is cancelled for any reason.

How long does the experience last?

Lasts approximately two hours. This includes a briefing and 12 miles of driving in total. Please arrive 45 minutes in advance of the booked time to ensure a prompt start.

How many other people?

Up to 30 people take part. Your briefing will be shared with a group. All driving is held on a one-to-one basis. There tend to be large numbers taking part at weekends.

Can I take people to watch?

Spectators are welcome and a camera will come in handy. The venue offers good facilities for spectators and drivers, including a US-style diner. Pets are not allowed at racing circuits.

What do I wear?

Wear trousers, a long-sleeved shirt and narrow, flat-soled shoes, as the pedals in these cars can be close together. Wear natural fibres like cotton, rather than synthetics like nylon.

Are there any restrictions?

Minimum height is 5’2”, maximum is 6’6”. Maximum weight is 20 stone. A full British or international manual driving licence must be produced on the day in order to participate.

Anything Else?

All instructors are Association of Racing Drivers Schools (ARDS) qualified. The model of Aston Martin will be confirmed on the day. 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.
