Get behind the wheel of a legendary Ferrari 430 coupe at the home of the British Grand Prix – Silverstone. Start off with a short briefing from a fully qualified instructor, who explains racing lines and Silverstone track driving techniques to prepare you for the drive ahead. Then it’s time for the main event – take the driving seat of the mighty 400 bhp Ferrari 430, which can reach speeds of up to 183 mph and has a 0 – 60 mph time of just 4 seconds. Take the car around the Silverstone circuit for six miles and experience the razor-sharp handling and raw power of the Ferrari first-hand.


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.
