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.
Off the Scale
You'll have to concentrate and step right out of your comfort zone to get through this one. You need to be pretty fit and possibly have done some adventure before. Adventures at this intensity level include many of our training courses due to the mental application, not just the physical, that's required. This is the ultimate rush you've been craving!

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!!
