Pitch two of the most incredible supercars available today against each other at the world-class Silverstone circuit. These cars are very different, but equally impressive: begin with a briefing and a demonstration drive, to get familiar with the circuit, racing lines and techniques so you can make the most of the driving time. Then it’s into the Ferrari F430, a sleek 400 bhp rocket, for 10 miles around the legendary circuit. After a quick break, it’s time for the Aston Martin V8 Vantage to shine: power around the now-familiar curves and down the exhilarating straights in this V8 beast for a further 10 miles and decide which is superior. This truly is a day to remember.


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 up to one and a half hours, including briefing, a demo lap and around 10 miles driving each car. 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. All driving time is held on a one-to-one basis with a qualified instructor.

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?

Dress warmly and comfortably in trousers and a long-sleeved top. Wear flat-soled shoes and bring driving gloves if possible. A helmet is provided.

Are there any restrictions?

Maximum weight 18 stone, minimum age 21. Minimum height is 5’2”; maximum height is 6’6”. A full manual driving licence must have been held for at least three years, to be presented on the day.

Anything Else?

When booking expect to be offered the choice of buying a collision damage waiver at £20 to £40 additional charge. Please note there is no obligation to purchase this optional waiver.
