Feel the thrill of driving a single seater racecar around two of New Zealands great race tracks
incl GST
In an experience normally reserved for the professionals, you have the chance to feel the thrill of driving a single seater racecar!!
Designed locally, these racecars provide you with a unique experience of what it's like to be driving a Formula 1 or Indycar around some of New Zealand’s great tracks.

An experience that will suit both novice and experienced drivers alike, these racecars offer drivers that pure sensation of just you, the track and the car.

You'll start by watching a tuition DVD which explains the basics of driving on a race track and also the tricks to driving these unique racecars. You will then be taken on a couple of tuition laps in a road car with an in-car consultant.  A passenger of your choice can join you, as you  learn the lines around the racetrack.

Getting strapped into the Formula Challenge single seater is an experience all on it's own!! As you hit the starter button and feel the engine burst into life only inches behind you, your heart starts to race. Clutch in and engage first gear using the F1-style push buttons on the steering wheel, ease off the clutch and you’re away. You'll be surprised at how easy they are to drive but how fast they are as you make your way onto the track.

Then..... Just as quickly as it started you see the chequered flag and it's time to head back into the pit lane.
And just in case it is all just a blur, you'll be presented with a certificate with your fastest lap and a picture of you just before you had the thrill of your life!!!!!
