A nice little Supercar Driving Experience within easy reach of Seighford, Staffordshire.
An opportunity to test supercars from two of the world’s best manufacturers is something too good to miss. Book a Ferrari versus Aston Martin experience at Stafford Activity Centre and experience the phenomenal acceleration of the Ferrari 430 or 575, followed by the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Feel like a superstar in a beautifully crafted Ferrari, and re-enact childhood James Bond fantasies in a spine-tingling Aston Martin, that merges power and performance with a classic design for an idyllic drive. Drive for over six miles around the mile-long Stafford Activity Centre track in each car. Complete the drive with a debrief analysis and driver certificate as a memento.
Runs around four times a month, and can be on a Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday or Thursday. The circuit is closed from early December to mid-January.
Driving might 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 Monday – Friday (if in any doubt).
Expect to be up to four hours at the venue, including driving time (6.6 miles in each car). Sessions start from 8am and those booked for between 11am – 3pm incur a £10 charge. Please arrive a few minutes early for a prompt start.
All in-car tuition is on a one-to-one basis. Briefings are held in groups of up to 30 people. There are likely to be other vehicles on the track at the same time.
Spectators are welcome and each one is entitled to a free 4×4 off road passenger ride. Other extra (chargable) drives and passenger rides are available on the day, subject to availability.
Dress comfortably (and warmly in winter) with trousers, long sleeves and narrow, flat-soled shoes to negotiate pedals that are close together. A helmet is provided.
Exit the M6 at j14. At the roundabout take the exit signed A5013 Eccleshall then continue through Creswell onto Great Bridgeford and take a left turn to the B5405 Woodseaves. Ignore the left into Clanford Road signed Seighford but turn left when you see signs for ‘Driving Experience Registration’ into Clanford Road opposite the Ladfordfields Ind Estate. Pass the Gliding Club and the entrance to the Driving Centre is on the right.
Maximum weight is 18 stone and maximum height is 6’6”. A full British or international manual licence must be produced on the day to guarantee participation.
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.
