F1 Driving Experience in Barcelona
People really like this Experience in Barcelona, Spain.
Join the privileged ranks of those who’ve burnt rubber in an F1 car around the world-famous Circuit de Catalunya. After coffee and snacks, get kitted out in FIA approved safety equipment. Pro instructors lead a briefing, then demonstrate the track in a course vehicle. Take the wheel of a single-seater Formula Renault 2.0 F3 and enjoy bullet-speed while perfecting those racing lines on the 4.6 kilometre circuit. After two 20 minute sessions and debriefs, break for lunch. Then slip into the F1 car (either V8 Benetton B198, V8 Prost or V10 Prost AP04) and savour its spine-tingling speed for three laps. Capable of 0-120mph in under five seconds and equipped with carbon brakes, these cars will take your breath away. If heaven did track days…
