THIS IS YOUR EXPERIENCE
You’re driving a Single Seater Race Car for 10 laps around Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park Taupo Track 3
In an experience normally reserved for the professionals, you now have the chance to feel the thrill of driving our single seater racecars!
A driving experience that will suit both novice and experienced drivers alike, these racecars offer drivers that pure sensation of just you, the track and the car.
You’ll start by watching our DVD tuition which explains the basics of driving on a race track and also the tricks to driving these unique racecars. Then you’ll move onto the tuition lap where one of our in-car consultants will take you and a passenger of your choice for a couple of laps around the track to learn the lines around the racetrack.
Then it’s all down to you!!!
Getting strapped into the Formula Challenge single seater is an experience all on it’s own!! As you hit the starter button and feel the engine burst into life only inches behind you, your heart starts to race. Clutch in and engage first gear using the F1-style push buttons on the steering wheel, ease off the clutch and you’re away. You’ll be surprised at how easy they are to drive but how fast they are as you make your way onto the track.
Includes a Certificate and Photo
Then….. just as quickly as it started, you’ll see the chequered flag and it’s time to head back into the pit lane. And just in case it is all just a blur, you’ll be presented with a certificate with your fastest lap and a picture of you just before you had the thrill of your life!!!!!
