Performance Saloon Car
|Initial laps driven by the instructor in a Performance Saloon|
Driving on a race circuit is very different to normal road driving. To make the most of the cars you’ll be driving on track you need to learn the ‘racing line’ and braking points.
We use Performance Saloon Cars for these initial laps.
Our ARDS qualified race instructors will demonstrate the racing lines and braking points plus other hints and tips to help you get the most from your driving experience.
Out on track it may seem quite unfamiliar with no road marks or signs and no cars coming in the other direction, but after a few laps watching and listening to your race instructor you’ll have built up a good idea of the circuit layout and be confident when you first get behind the wheel and head out on track.

7-speed F1 dual-clutch
|4 laps pupil drives the Ferrari 458 Italia|
The Ferrari 458 Italia is the latest supercar from Ferrari. They've applied all there technical knowhow from their F1 team and applied it to this car. The result is stunning.
Seated in the drivers seat you feel embraced by the car, the dashboard surrounds you. The steering wheel could be straight from Alonso's F1 car, it controls: engine, suspension, traction, gearbox as well as delivering arguably the best steering feel of any supercar available.
Out on track the car just gets better. Hit the throttle in any gear and the car takes off immediately. Once up to speed the car has so much grip.
This driving experience is all about the very latest and according to the press, the very best Ferrari ever made - the 458 Italia. To look at, it's obviously a Ferrari with some hints of previous models but ultimately looks ultra modern. As you would expect from Ferrari, the 458 Italia is a technical tour de force that results in a driving experience that rewrites the supercar rule book. At its heart is a 4.5 litre V8 producing an amazing 562bhp. All that power to the rear wheel ONLY is the latest version of Ferrari's 7 speed F1 duel clutch gearbox.
Performance figures are reassuringly impressive, 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds and 0-100mph in 7 seconds, yes 7 seconds!
No words can properly describe the feeling you get when driving the Ferrari 458. It is quite simply unbelievable.
