The course takes place around our purpose built performance driving track.

Have Fun in Your Own Car - Away From Speed Cameras!

It can be a real frustration for most High Performance Car Owners that they can never safely, or legally, get a chance to see what their car is really capable of. On this experience you are free to floor the throttle and see what your car can do!

No Standing Around - Only 2 People in the Group!

The maximum group size for this course is just 2 people! So you will always be the next person on track plus ALL your driving sessions will be one to one with an instructor in the car with you.

Drive on Our Performance Circuit - At Your Own Pace!

There is no need to be concerned that you will be forced to drive flat out in your pride and joy and damage your tyres etc! In fact far from it, you can choose your own speed to drive at and just enjoy the experience. Performance driving skills can be learnt at any speed or pace and your experienced instructor will help you to enjoy the experience and keep things safe and in control at all times.

Learn Performance Driving Skills

On the course you will learn the high performance driving techniques which are used by the world's most successful race and rally drivers. These skills will give you a greater understanding of your vehicles handling and allow you to drive the car near its limit in safety. These skills include:

  • Correct Vehicle Balance
  • Taking Racing Lines
  • Handling a Supercar
  • Effective Braking Techniques, including Gear Down Change
  • Safer Cornering
  • Weight Transfer and Turn in Techniques
  • Finding the Grip Limit

The Sessions Include

Our Track - Built For Safety!

The track used for this experience utilises the airfield's main runway. The track is formed using traffic cones, and it is also designed with very large run off areas for added safety. This allows drivers to push the limits of their cars and make mistakes in a very safe environment.

Car Hire Option

You also have the option to hire one of our training cars for the experience. This is usually a Ford Focus. The cost for this is just an extra £50.00 and this can either be purchased on the day or purchased when booking the course, to add this online click the Car Hire box before you checkout.
