Dear Tim, Happy 40th birthday! Hope you have a wonderful day and enjoy this experience. Lots of love from Mum & Dad, Alison, Emma, Chris and Ben.
THIS IS YOUR EXPERIENCE
You’re driving a V8 and a Single Seater Race Car for 8 laps each around Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park Taupo Track 3
A DVD briefing starts your day, to learn the theory of driving on a race track along with the safety aspects of the day. Once the briefing is done, then it’s off to the pit lane where the fun starts!!
Your on-track V8 driving experience starts by getting suited up in a race suit and race boots then into our tuition car for an introduction lap around the circuit with one of our in-car consultants talking you around the track while you’re in the passenger seat. And if you want, you can take a spectator along for the ride so they can experience the thrill of being on a racetrack too.
Then it’s your turn behind the wheel.
8 laps driving a Ford or Holden V8 racecar with one of our instructors in the passenger seat, followed by another 8 laps behind the wheel of the unique single-seater race cars.
Includes a Certificate and Photo
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!!!!!
