Description

WE’VE SUPERSIZED YOUR DRIVE - BONUS EXTRA 5.5 KM DRIVING INCLUDED! 

Drives now take place on the full National Circuit, so you drive an extra 5.5 KM

Drive a V8 supercar
  • You drive a V8 Race Car for 10 laps AND ride for 3 laps
  • Most powerful 450hp 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
  • Convenient weekend dates

Nothing shakes the body like the roar of a V8 race car, and nothing stirs the soul more than a session of hot laps in a V8 six-speed Commodore around the circuit at Melbourne's legendary V8 race track, Calder Park. 

The Calder Park V8 drive day begins with a briefing conducted by experienced race drivers. During pre-drive tuition, your driver will explain techniques on cornering, apexes and exiting, efficient braking and acceleration, steering, gear changes and general car control. Safety and track awareness will also be discussed. There's plenty of time to ask questions so you'll feel completely comfortable before putting V8 race car theory into practice. 

Then it's time to let loose your inner revhead during a session of real life Calder Park V8 driving action. Each driver does their driving session behind the wheel of a fully race-prepared V8 Commodore or Monaro. Then, just when you reckon you can drive a V8 like Mark Skaife, your experienced race driver will take control again for a session of seriously quick V8 hot laps that you're not likely to forget for a very long time.

We got there a little early and had to wait around a while as the class before us was running late. Loved the experience though, One of the best things I done. Thanks a lot to the team.

Thanks for an amazing experience! After the fast laps with my driver I wanted to get back in the V8 and have another crack, as it really shows just how slow you go. I now under stand the concept of "break hard", the drivers do it with ease. I will def be back for more!!
