For those hunting the perfect driving gift, give the incredible chance to drive a supercar already considered a modern classic on one of the world’s most famous tracks. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was the long-awaited successor to the celebrated DB9 and, despite similar styling, is miles ahead in terms of speed, driveability and innovation. So what better place to test this ferocious 4.7 litre, 420 bhp V8 engine than Silverstone? After being welcomed and briefed, strap in for a professionally-driven lap to get familiar with the circuit’s iconic layout, before taking the wheel of the Vantage for four exhilarating laps. After a short break, drive a further four laps around Silverstone, completing a total of 15 memorable miles!


Available for morning slots only at 8.30am and 9.40am. Runs on weekends, at least one date every month throughout the year. The circuit closes between mid-December and mid-January for the winter shut-down.


Driving may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow, ice, heavy rain or high winds) which would make driving at speed dangerous. Please call the venue if in any doubt.

How long does the experience last?

Expect to be at the venue for approximately two hours, including briefing, a demo lap and around 15 miles of driving the Aston Martin. Arrive 30 – 40 minutes prior to the start time for the essential safety briefing.

How many other people?

Share the briefing with up to 24 other participants. Just the instructor will share the Aston Martin during the drive.

Can I take people to watch?

Spectators are welcome and can bring a camera to record the experience. Please note that pets are not permitted. There is a coffee shop selling coffees, soft drinks and hot and cold snacks.

What do I wear?
