Go for a spin in the commanding McLaren MP4-12C at Leicestershire’s Prestwold circuit, a driving experience which is sure to satisfy any avid supercar fanatic! Kick off with a welcome introduction and safety discussion courtesy of a qualified instructor. After hearing about essential racing lines and track driving techniques it’s time for the fun to start – climb behind the wheel of the beastly 592 bhp McLaren and take it four jaw-dropping laps, negotiating every bend, straight, twist and turn of Prestwold’s challenging circuit. At the end of the experience, receive a commemorative driving certificate.


At least two weekend dates per month, as well as occasional weekdays. The circuit is closed from early December to mid-January.


Driving may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. high winds, ice or heavy rain) which would make driving at speed dangerous. The venue will get in touch if the experience is cancelled for any reason.

Can I take people to watch?
