Everybody needs a thrill now and again, and this rip-roaring Ferrari driving day at Heyford Park should put a smile on any face. Start off with a welcome introduction and briefing from a professional instructor, before being driven around the 1 mile Heyford Park circuit to demonstrate driving techniques and braking points. Then tear around in the driver’s seat of either the 183 mph, 400 bhp, 0 – 60 mph in 4.5 seconds Ferrari 360 or the equally spectacular 198 mph Ferrari 430. Receive a certificate to remember this special experience by, along with a driver analysis form of the six lap Ferrari driving experience.
