Your experience will be in NASCAR-style stock racing cars. No prior experience is required, but you must have a valid UK driver’s license. Each package offers something a little different and you do not have to start with the Rookie package.
The cars do not have doors so participants must be able to climb through a 15” high by 30” wide window that sits 36” from the ground.
If the track is wet, then you will be offered an alternative date
Top speed varies according to student performance, track location and the limits set for each programme
Participants must be at least 18 years old, except on the Ride Along Experience which has a minimum age of 14 years.
