Formula Renault

Firmly strapped into the cockpit the car is an extension of you. It will react to every input. When you brake it stops, turn the steering wheel and it darts left or right. Road cars seem soggy and unresponsive by comparison.

We also have the Sports 2000 racing car for customers who are too tall to drive the Formula Renault. These Le Mans looking cars are very fast and have downforce to help corner at high speeds. Great fun to drive!
