Take control of two world-class racing giants in one thrilling session with this Ferrari versus Aston Martin experience at Lydden Hill in Kent. The astounding Aston Martin and the ferocious Ferrari have very different but equally incredible capabilities and provide the kind of performance and pace sure to satisfy even the most hardened of petrol heads. Following a safety briefing and introduction to the track, it’s time to hop in the driver’s seat with an instructor as passenger to advise during driving time. Then, once revved up and ready to go, grab the wheel of either the Ferrari 360 or 430 for six sensational miles of driving action, followed by a further six miles in the Aston Martin DB9 or V8 Vantage. Finish by taking home a certificate.
