Get an authentic feel for competition-speed driving with a fantastic high-speed passenger ride experience at the Lydden Hill Circuit in Kent. After a short safety induction from an instructor, get ready for the ride of a lifetime! Hop into the passenger seat of a race-prepared Vauxhall VXR8 and enjoy taking laps of the mile long circuit – this fine vehicle demonstrates the agility and acceleration of a high performance car without the need to drive around yourself. Sit back, strap in and enjoy, you’re in safe hands!
