About the Double Ferrari Driving Experience

Ferrari cars are known and admired all over the world and rightly so as they make stunning supercars.

Before getting behind the wheel of the Ferraris there's time to learn the circuit with our ARDS race instructors initially as a passenger, then driving the Porsche Cayman.

Having got some laps under your belt, its time to get behind the first of the Ferrari supercar - the Ferrari F430

It's a deeply impressive supercar, exactly what you'd expect from a modern Ferrari supercar. Sitting in the pit lane, it has a more aggressive stance than the models that went before.

Climbing into the driving seat, you know it is going to be a very memorable experience. Barking into life over your left shoulder the 4.3 V8 settles into a bassy idle, the large gearshift paddles are easy and intuitive to operate.

As the speed rises it will feel totally at home on the track. As the driver you'll feel the emotion that is pure Ferrari!

Next up is the Ferrari 458 Spider.

The 458 spider is a technical tour de force that results in a driving experience that rewrites the supercar rule book.

No words can properly describe the feeling you get when driving the Ferrari 458. It is quite simply unbelievable.

Out on track the car just gets better. Hit the throttle in any gear and the car takes off immediately. Once up to speed the car has so much grip.

Jeremy Clarkson gave the best summary of the car: "The Ferrari 458 is one of the all time greats. It's really is absolutely, unbelievably, mesmerizingly brilliant"
