If ever there was an opportunity to re-enact scenes and feel like super spy James Bond, then this spectacular Aston Martin driving thrill at Elvington Race Track in Yorkshire is just that. Behold the beautifully crafted V8 Vantage, or the stunning DB9, with its powerful 6 litre 186mph engine. Receive an insightful introduction and briefing from a professional instructor and learn about the racing lines and braking points of the track. Then tear around for four laps of this 1.7 mile circuit at the wheel of the iconic Aston Martin. Complete the Aston Martin driving thrill with a presentation of a certificate and completed driver analysis form to remember this driving experience by.


At least one weekend date a month from April – October , plus very occasional Fridays and Mondays. We recommend allowing several weeks booking notice for this popular experience.


Driving might be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow, ice, heavy rain or high winds) which would make driving at speed dangerous. Contact will be made if the experience is cancelled for any reason.

How long does the experience last?

Expect to be at the circuit for between an hour and two hours in total. Please arrive 45 minutes in advance of the booked time to ensure a prompt start.

How many other people?

All in-car tuition is on a one-to-one basis. Briefings are held in groups of up to 30 people. There are likely to be other vehicles on the track at the same time.

Can I take people to watch?

Spectators are welcome and there are catering facilities on-site. Extra (chargeable) drives are available on the day. Safety dictates that pets cannot be permitted.

What do I wear?

Dress comfortably (and warmly in winter) with trousers, long sleeves and narrow, flat-soled shoes to negotiate pedals that are close together.

Are there any restrictions?

Maximum weight is 18 stone. Minimum height is 4’11” and maximum 6’5”. A full British or international manual driving licence held for at least 12 months must be produced on the day in order to participate.

Anything Else?

Please be aware that the model of Aston Martin will be chosen for you on the day. 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.
