The No. 1 V8 Race Experience in Australia. Check out the NEW video!
You drive a V8 Race Car for 6 laps
Most powerful 450 hp V8 race cars available to drive in Australia!
Real race car driver/instructors in the car with you
Supercar 6-pot brakes, racing slicks, Bilstein suspension and Racing gearbox handles like a real V8 Supercar
Feel the excitement and g-force of V8 performance racing with Australia’s premier V8 experience team for 6 laps at Eastern Creek Raceway, a challenging circuit and home to the V8 Supercars and A1 Grand Prix. Driving in an anti-clockwise direction, this track delivers a challenging mix of long straights, tight and tricky corners, rising curves, hills and flats. Be prepared to take it to the max with a no limit drive often reaching 200 kph!
Your V8 race car drive day begins with a registration, followed by on-track observation laps with an instructor at the wheel covering apexes, braking points and overtaking procedure (though it's not a race, overtaking is common - and very exciting!). Then it's off to the pit lane, where you're fitted out with racing overalls and helmet.
You are then strapped in behind the wheel and you're off! Your personal instructor will coach you through the intercom to make sure you go as fast as you can, as safely as you can on the 6 lap session.
To get the most out of your time at the track, you'll be driving on the short course to make learning the corners, apex and braking points a great deal faster. This means you spend your time concentrating on enjoying driving these powerful beasts, rather than learning the circuit.
The heated and air-conditioned VIP suite which doubles as reception, with a balcony that overlooks the start/finish line provides the perfect viewing area for spectators on the day. Or get right into the pit, feel the noise and smell the fumes up close and personal. Complimentary tea and coffee will be available at the reception on the day and a canteen will be open on all race days for the purchase of light meals.
This is getting to the pointy end. Heights, speed, endurance or a combination of all form part of this adventure. Be prepared to be challenged both physically and mentally. Bring that 'can do' attitude and maybe a change of clothes. You're about to get a taste of Serious Fun!
