Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Guest drives

Why are Aston Martin's so popular? It's simple, they're beautiful to look at, brilliant to drive and James Bond has got one! This model is the Vantage AMR. Inspired by Aston Martin’s rich racing pedigree, the AMR is the most dramatic version of the Aston Martin Vantage ever.

McLaren 570S - Guest drives

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.

3 laps

Ferrari 458 Spider - Guest drives

The Ferrari 458 Spider is a V8 engine supercar from Ferrari. They've applied all their technical knowhow from the F1 team and applied it to this car. The is model also comes with all the Speciale options. The result is stunning. Seated in the drivers seat you feel embraced by the car. The steering wheel could be straight from Vettels F1 car.

What to expect from the Supercar Trio Driving Experience

It's Britain v Italy. McLaren v Ferrari v Aston Martin.

This driving experience puts guests behind the wheel of three brilliant supercars all on the UK's fastest race circuit. A fantastic opportunity to experience these supercars in their natural environment.

Kicking things of is the new kid on the block. The McLaren 570S. McLaren may be relatively new to the supercar market but they've raised the bar with every model they've launched. The 570S is no exception. Sat in the pit lane the design sets it apart from all other supercars. The lines are sleek, yet the overall look is aggressive. Out on track, the twin turbo V8 (the same engine as found in McLarens P1) has seemingly never ending acceleration. A stunning car which guests will instantly fall in love with.

After the McLaren 570S it's on to the Aston Martin N430 V8 Vantage. Look for the accent colour on the grill of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage tells you this is something special. The AMR is the race bred version from Aston Martin. On track it’s awesome. The unmistakable V8 engine sings around Thruxton. The V8 engine sings around the sweeping corners at Thruxton with power sent to the rear wheels.

Last up, the Ferrari 458 Spider. Ferrari have always been the benchmark that all other supercar manufacturers aim for.

The Ferrari 458 is quite possibly the most complete supercar they've ever made. Sat behind the wheel, the prancing horse emblem in the centre of the wheel, you know this is going to be special. hit the starter button and wait for the car to burst in to life. The 4.5 litre, naturally aspirated V8 engine is the core of the car. The sound, power and delivery is addictive. On track, you become one with the car. It reacts perfectly to every input you make. simply stunning!

Before driving the three supercars, guests will have time to learn the circuit with an ARDS race instructor. Initially as a passenger and then whilst driving the brilliant Porsche Cayman. A fantastic sports car that inspires confidence and will set you up perfectly for your time on track in the McLaren, Ferrari and Aston Martin.

McLaren describe the 570S as "completely driver-centric, equally at home on the track as it is on the open road" and we have to agree! The McLaren 570S inspires confidence from the moment you head out of the pitlane onto the track. The 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine (the same as used in the McLaren P1) is immense. The car is so fast and feels like it always wants you to go faster.

The Ferrari 458 Spider is a technical marvel. The mid-engined V8 produces an astonishing 462bhp and 398 lb/ft of torque. Put simply this means it accelerates very quickly and has a top speed of over 200mph! The 458 also has Ferrari's latest dual clutch system which is simply brilliant.
