For motor racing fanatics, this is a must! Drive the championship winning Challenge version of the iconic Ferrari F430, the only vehicle of its kind available to experience in the UK. With its sparse interior, roll cage and 19” slicks, it’s utterly focused. Kick off with a safety briefing before heading out on the track for the first driving session. Hop into the passenger seat of a track prepared sports car for three demo laps, a thrilling way to get familiar with the race track. Then, enjoy a high-speed passenger ride before taking charge of the mighty 550bhp V8 Ferrari F430 Challenge for 10 laps. Find out first-hand just what this amazing supercar is really capable of – sensational!


Several weekdays per month throughout the year. Saturday mornings are available for an additional £39 when booking.
