Take the iconic Aston Martin V8 Vantage for a spin around Britain’s most famous race circuit – Silverstone. With 420 bhp and a 0 – 60 mph time of just 4.9 seconds, this car is as satisfying to drive as it is to look at. Begin with a briefing from a fully qualified instructor, including a discussion on racing lines and fundamental driving techniques. Then take the wheel of the sensational Aston Martin V8 Vantage and put it through its paces around the Silverstone circuit for nearly six miles. With an instructor on hand throughout, experience this car’s full capabilities and realise why Aston Martin has such an incredible reputation.


Available for morning slots only at 8.30am, 9.30am and 10.30am. 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.


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