Watching Formula 1 will never be the same again after you've experienced driving a proper single-seat racing car on a proper race circuit. Many of the current crop of F1 drivers started their careers in the junior formulas. Once seated with the racing straps fitted around you the engine bursts into life, you'll feel like a Grand Prix is about to start. Once up to speed, everything clicks into place as you and the car become one, getting quicker every lap, the car responding instantly. A truly unique experience and one that will be remembered

About the Racing Car Experience

Want to feel like Lewis Hamilton and experience real downforce? Now you can at Croft race circuit in the UK.

You don't so much sit in a Formula Croft as get physically attached to the car. Tightly strapped into the cockpit, you become part of the car. Every bump, camber and vibration is transmitted through the driver, you know and feel exactly what is happening. Slick tyres and wings give razor sharp responses, try to relax behind the wheel, even the slightest driver input is a noticeable direction change.

Before the racing car there's time to get to grips with the race circuit in the fantastic Porsche Cayman. The mid engined car is great fun and incredibly rewarding to drive, it gives great driver feedback, accurate and responsive steering and great handling balance.

The Cars

Firmly strapped into the cockpit the car is an extension of you. It will react to every input. When you brake it stops, turn the steering wheel and it darts left or right. Road cars seem soggy and unresponsive by comparison.
