In an ideal world, if you could drive any car it’s likely that a few names will pop into your head – it may be American muscle cars such as a GT500 Mustang Shelby or 1970 Dodge Charger RT, British supercars such as a Noble M600 or Lotus Elise or the powerhouses of sports cars, the Italian diamonds such as a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 Spyder or a Ferrari 458 Italia. For those of you whose dream car is the latter, instead of dreaming about getting behind the wheel of the prancing horse, why not turn it into a reality by taking part in a Ferrari driving experience provided by an experienced driving experience firm.
For any motor-racing fan, getting behind the wheel of a supercar and heading out onto a track to unleash the power the vehicle has to offer in a controlled environment, is the perfect way to spend a couple of hours or a weekend – and thanks to the range of driving experience packages available, it’s now possible.
Long gone are the days when getting behind the wheel of a car complete with the Italian prancing horse badge was reserved for the rich and famous. Instead for the small price of £75 anyone over the age of 17, with a full manual licence, can take to the track and experience the power of a V8 engine combined with the hairpin bends, the fast paced apexes and the tight chicanes many tracks offer – not to mention the start finish straight, in which you’ll be able to feel the full power of the Italian supercar.
For those that are looking at getting more out of their driving experience, then for a bigger price you can either get behind the wheel of various supercars, pitting them and your times against each other; or you can experience a high speed ride as a passenger. Whichever you opt for, you’re guaranteed to have a day which lasts long in the memory and gets the adrenaline flowing.
Although driving experiences are designed to give those interested in supercars the chance to get behind the wheel of their dream car, safety is still an important factor and isn’t taken lightly.
Each driving experience provided will see a trained driver sit alongside you, to ensure you get most out of your experience and remember it for all the right reasons. Along with having an experienced driver beside you during each lap, many driving experience packages come complete with a safety briefing before you get out on the track and also a familiarisation lap giving you the chance to see the track and understand the racing line, before getting behind the wheel yourself.
Whether you’re looking for a Ferrari driving experience for yourself or as a gift, there are a number of packages available, all of which are designed to give you the chance to experience the power and purr of the beautiful prancing Italian horse.
