Guest drives the McLaren 570S

4 laps

The McLaren 570S is stunning. The design is completely different from any of the other supercars in our driving experience fleet. The 570S isn't just nice to look at though. Out on track the twin turbo V8 engine (the same engine used in McLarens P1) delivers seemingly endless acceleration. The chassis is more than up to the job of keeping everything in check, especially around the long sweeping corners at Thruxton.

5 laps

Watching Formula 1 will never be the same again after you've experienced driving a proper single seat racing car on a proper race circuit. Many of the current crop of F1 drivers have raced in this formula with Kimi Raikkonen and Lewis Hamilton both winning the UK series. Once seated with the racing straps fitted around you the engine bursts into life you'll feel like a Grand Prix is about to start. Once up to speed, everything clicks into place as you and the car become one, getting quicker every lap, the car responding instantly. A truly unique experience and one that will be remembered

About the Ultimate Supercar Driving Experience

We are happy to call this the Ultimate Experience, you will not find anything better anywhere in the UK maybe even the world. An outstanding selection of cars to drive and ride around in.

Learn the circuit in the car widely acknowledged to be the best handing, most involving sports car on the market, the Porsche Cayman.

Then work your way through four very different but individually brilliant supercars. McLaren have set the supercar world alight. The 570S is simply stunning to drive.

The bespoke Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430. Inspired by Aston Martin’s rich racing pedigree, the N430 is the most dramatic version of the Aston Martin Vantage ever created.

Moving to the premier league performance, the two most famous supercar brands in the world - Ferrari and Lamborghini. The Ferrari 458 Spider and Lamborghini Huracan really deliver more than you would expect in performance, handling, looks, technology and something that is sometimes overlooked. Real emotion.

After the supercars you will experience two machines that were designed and built for just one reason, to go a fast as possible around a race track within the within the rules for their particular formula. Starting with a five laps drive in a Martini Formula Renault, a car that will feel a much more raw experience after driving the supercar. To finish off your experience you will be a passenger for some high speed laps of Thruxton's famous sweeping and challenging curves and corners. The Peugeot THP Spider Cup Car has a 220 bhp 1.6 litre turbo but at just under 800 kgs it will be the fastest car through any of the corners - two laps will take your breath away.

The finale is a three lap ride with Tiff Needell in a 420 bhp rear wheel drive BMW M4. A man more famous now for his TV appearances on BBC Top Gear and now Channel Fives Fifth Gear, Tiff has a hugely impressive CV as an international race driver in all sorts of vehicle from Touring cars through Le Mans sports cars and a short stint in Formula One. No one is better than Tiff at going sideways and the M3 is an ideal car to do it in!

The Cars

Image of McLaren 570S

McLaren 570S

McLaren describe the 570S as "completely driver-centric and performance oriented, the 570S Coupé is equally at home on the track as it is on the open road" and we have to agree! The fast sweeping corners and high speed nature of Thruxton quickly expose any cars vulnerabilities. The McLaren 570S inspired confidence from the moment we headed out of the pitlane on to the track. The 3.8 litre twin turbo V8 engine (the same one that's used in the McLaren P1) is immense and took us by surprise. The car is so fast and feels like it always wants you to go faster.

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!
