Be the envy of all your friends with an iconic Porsche driving day at Leicestershire’s Prestwold Driving Centre. Feel like a true racing driver for a day, handling either the stunning Porsche 996 or 997 version of the 911, whose style and acceleration are certain to satisfy even the most hardened of driving enthusiasts. Following a short driver briefing with a qualified instructor, put the theory into practice in the pinnacle of German performance engineering – the classic Porsche 911. Marvel at the pace, incredible handling and stunning design of the vehicle as you drive four laps of the 1.8 mile Prestwold Hall circuit. Conclude by picking up a certificate to take home.


Selected Saturdays and occasional weekdays. We recommend allowing several weeks advance booking notice for this particularly popular experience.


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