Formula Silverstone single-seaters sit just inches from the ground, are incredibly responsive and have been expertly engineered to provide a genuine racing thrill. Going flat out around this purpose-built motor racing training facility, experience what it’s like to be a Formula 1 champion. Start with a briefing from a fully qualified instructor to help demonstrate racing lines and track driving techniques in preparation for the drive ahead. Then take the wheel of the sensational single-seater, which can go from 0 – 60 mph in under five seconds, for a 15 minute session. Begin with three laps driving behind a pace car, before being let loose for the remainder of the session to push those driving skills to the absolute limit!


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.


Track driving may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow, ice or severe rain) which would make driving at speed dangerous. Please call the venue if in any doubt.

Can I take people to watch?

What do I wear?

Are there any restrictions?
