Drive two of the best supercars on the planet at the world-famous Silverstone circuit. Feel the power of the Ferrari 430 pitched against the style of the present . The Ferrari is light, agile and has 400 bhp going to the rear wheels. The Aston Martin has a sublime 4.3 litre V8 engine that powers down the straight. Start with a safety briefing, before being given a passenger demonstration lap by a qualified instructor. Then take the wheel of the Ferrari 430 for a 10 mile drive of the circuit. After a break, enjoy a further 10 miles driving the Aston Martin around the first class Silverstone circuit. Incredible!


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.

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?
