High Speed Passenger Ride with Tiff Needell - Instructor drives

Three exhilarating laps with Tiff at the wheel as he talks you around Thruxton and squeezes every last horse power out of the new BMW M2 whilst pointing sideways at the same time!

What to expect from the Tiff Needell BMW Passenger Ride Experience

Have you ever watched Top Gear or 5th Gear and seen Tiff Needell performing seemingly impossible sideways slides in all manner of cars? If not, a quick search on YouTube will soon show what Tiff is about.

Thruxton is pleased to offer our customers the chance to experience Tiff's legendary car control first-hand from the passenger seat of the BMW M2. The BMW M2 holds a 3 litre straight 6 twin turbo with all 405hp sent to the rear wheels, making it the perfect machine for Tiff to demonstrate why he made it all the way to Formula 1 and the Le Mans 24 hours.

The BMW feels like it was made to lap Thruxton's fast sweeping corners and with Tiff at the wheel, you're guaranteed to experience the car's full potential.

To complete this unique experience you will be filmed from inside the car with a 360 video, including Tiff's commentary of your laps, which will be yours to keep and relive the excitement.

Thruxton is my local track and one of my favourites. I had my first win here. The challenge it offers still gives me a great buzz - especially in the powerful BMW M2 Competition

Sideways with Tiff

One Amazing Car

The BMW M2 feels like it was made to lap Thruxton's fast, sweeping corners. The car is equipped with a 405hp, 3.0l twin-turbo engine up front, mounted to a seven-speed double-clutch transmission that sends all the power to the rear wheels. The car glides around the tighter corners in neverending powerslides, whilst staying posed through the faster corners.
