Full description
Before getting into the driver’s seat you’ll be suited up in full race gear and helmet, and receive a technical briefing from your racing coach. Next, you’ll take familiarization laps around the circuit in a Renault vehicle. During these slow laps, your coach will explain the racing line and how to approach each corner. At this point in your 80-minute activity you should be ready for the real action. You’ll head back to the pits, where you’ll be further briefed on your car before being tightly strapped in. Prepare to feel every bump, ripple and sensation of the drive. You can be sure that you've never been this connected to a driving machine! For this experience, 5 cars are scheduled per session. Your instructor will lead the way on pace laps along the circuit. With wings and slick tires, you’ll experience razor-sharp responses. It’s important to relax behind the wheel, as even the slightest driver input delivers a noticeable change in direction. During your driving session, the challenge is to improve your racing technique. At the end your instructor will provide detailed feedback and offer suggestions on how you might improve your technique.

A truly unforgettable experience !!!!!!

Thank you to all the team at the F3000 experience day. From the initial meet and greet the whole event ran like clockwork! Once you put that race suit on and walk outside to view the circuit and the pit lane you feel an amazing sense of excitement. Watching the cars being prepared starts to switch you into driving mode. A comprehensive briefing gives you the tips and safety measures to enable you to get the best drive possible (if you listen that is)! If you don’t listen and ask questions you may not have the best experience as mistakes cost you time. The team ensure that you are seeded to enable you to drive to the best of your ability! Instruction, first class and once the team are happy with your performance... OFF you go. I was able to drive my whole session without being swapped over and with only two of us behind the instructor we got up to optimum speed and made full use of the braking points and racing line. Only one issue, I did not want to get out of the car ! Ace !

Disappointed you don’t get to drive the whole track should be made clear on booking. Purchasing video at end is disappointing as told best lap only and you can’t view other laps. Not sure it is the best lap just one random lap.
