About the Junior F-TYPE Driving Experience Stage 2

Young drivers who have completed our Junior Driving Experience Stage 1 can now do our Junior F-TYPE Driving Experience Stage 2.

This experience is similar to the driving experiences we offer to licence holders in that we use the full 2.4 mile Thruxton Circuit.

Initially drivers will receive a briefing before heading out on track with one of our Advance Driving Instructors (ADI) to demonstrate the circuit layout and best driving technique.

Then the first of two sessions in the Jaguar F-TYPE - one of the best sports cars on the market to date. The first session (15 minutes) will concentrate developing the techniques learnt form the stage 1 experience.

The second session (15 minutes) will give drivers the chance to build on what they have learnt and improve their technique and accuracy whilst lapping faster and more consistently.

The above is what we aim to achieve [and we think we will with most pupils] but everyone is different, with some learning quicker than others, our ADI will tailor each session to the individual pupil

We also offer a Junior Porsche Driving Experience - Click for more details
