About the Alpine A110 PLUS Driving Experience

The original Alpine A110 from the late sixties was a lightweight, compact, highly agile sports car that the Alpine-Renault team used to claim the World Rally Championship manufacturers’ title in 1973. The same core elements of lightness and agility have been used by Alpine to resurrect and build the new A110 for the modern-day. The result is stunning and has catapulted the A110 straight to the top of the sports car tree.

As soon as you seat yourself in the driver's seat, the Alpine A110 wraps around you. Fire up the engine and head out on track. The performance is fantastic, the lightness of the car will amaze you. Thruxton is the perfect place to experience the Alpine A110. The combination of fast sweeping corners and tighter combination corners at the complex and chicane allow the Alpine A110 to show off everything it has to offer.

Before driving the Alpine A110 you'll learn the layout of the race circuit with an ARDS qualified race instructor, initially as a passenger and then driving the Porsche Cayman. The Porsche Cayman is a fantastic sports car and a direct competitor to the Alpine A110. A great car that gives the driver lots of confidence behind the wheel.

After the Alpine A110, you'll experience a proper single-seat racing car. Feel what it's like to be an F1 driver as you experience g-force, amazing acceleration and stopping power.

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!
