Take a look at this Kids Driving Experience located handily in Seighford, Staffordshire.
If your child has dreamt of being the next Lewis Hamilton, give them the chance to get into the driving seat of a Ferrari 430. With expert tuition by an ARDS (Association of Racing Drivers School) qualified driving instructor and a dual-controlled vehicle, they’ll be in safe hands taking on the tantalising twists of the mile long Stafford race track. The experience kicks off with a welcome briefing. Then it’s time to take the wheel of the stunning Ferrari 430, a car most people only dream of driving. Drive over six miles of the circuit in this Italian beauty. At the end of the day each youngster will receive a certificate, a fitting souvenir of this amazing Ferrari driving experience!
Runs on selected weekdays throughout the school holidays. 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).
Your briefing will be shared. All in-car tuition is on a one-to-one basis.
Parents or guardians must remain on-site during the whole experience. Spectators are welcome and each is entitled to a free 4×4 off road passenger ride. Other extra, chargeable drives and passenger rides are available, subject to availability.
