We really like this Experience near Loughborough, Leicestershire.
The Aston Martin is famous for being effortlessly cool and combines classic beauty with power and practicality. An experience that will not be forgotten. Take the wheel on this Aston Martin driving experience. At the circuit you’ll be briefed by a fully qualified driving instructor, explains the layout of the circuit. Then take the wheel for ten minutes driving time in either an Aston Martin V8 Vantage or Aston Martin DB9, two amazing sports cars capable of a maximum speed of 180 mph! To finish, receive a driving certificate to take home.
