In an experience normally reserved for the professionals, you now have the chance to feel the thrill of driving one of our Ford or Holden V8 race cars

The experience starts by heading into a DVD briefing which runs through the theory of driving on a race track along with the safety aspects of the day. Once the briefing is done, then it's off to the pit lane where the fun starts!!

Your on-track experience starts by getting suited up in our race suit and race boots then into our tuition car for an introduction lap around the circuit with one of our in-car consultants talking you around the track while your in the passenger seat. This will give you an idea of what to expect and what you've got yourself in for!!! And if you want, you can take a spectator along for the ride so they can experience the thrill of being on a racetrack.

Having chosen your favourite, it's now time to drive it! Get strapped into one of our V8's and experience the stunning performance of these cars as you and your professional instructor lap the circuit at speeds you never thought possible you'd get up to.

With your laps complete but your heart still racing, you head back to the pitlane where you receive a certificate complete with your fastest lap time as proof that it wasn't just a dream.


  • Although no experience is needed these cars do have a clutch so some experience using a clutch is desired. If you can not drive a car with a clutch please give us a call to discuss what your options may be – 07 377 0338
  • All products are based on Taupo Track 3.  However occasionally when we have to use Track 1 or 2(over twice as long) you'll get the same drive time or more on the track but you'll only do half the number of laps.
