High Speed Passenger Ride in a two-seat racing car - Instructor drives

It's a two-seat racing car that runs on slick racing tyres has an F1 style paddle-shift gearbox which is connected to a whopping 2.8 litre V6 naturally aspirated engine. It's a white knuckle ride you'll never forget. Under brakes you'll feel the car searching for grip then the tyres forcing the chassis in to the next corner at seemingly impossible speeds

What to expect from the Tesco Three Car Passenger Ride

Hold tight as one of our performance saloon, the Ford Focus ST screams around the circuit on the limit of adhesion. Next up is the brand new Porsche Cayman, this fantastic mid-engined sports car is at home on the track and really excels.

Then full speed in the two-seat racing car. It's a proper open wheel racing car. Unleashed around the 2.4-mile circuit it's an amazing experience.

This is a white knuckle ride you'll remember for a long time to come!

The Porsche Cayman is a genuine junior supercar. Similar in looks to the 911 but with a mid-engine layout. Once seated in the car, it's unmistakably a Porsche. Out on track the car gives incredible feedback and is perfectly balanced, allowing the driver to build in confidence and enjoy the increased power and incredible grip that the car generates.

Winner of the Top Gear Magazine Hot Hatch award and you'll understand why the moment you get behind the wheel and head out on track. The ST is propelled by a brilliant 2.3-litre four-cylinder engine that delivers 276bhp and 310lb ft of torque. Helping put that power down is a brilliant chassis, a limited-slip differential, adaptive damping and 19-inch wheels.
