Driving an Aston Martin and riding shotgun in an Ariel Atom is sure to leave you bitten by the motor racing bug!
Get behind the wheel of either the Aston Martin V8 Vantage or DB9, both of which boast beauty, sophistication and power. Aston Martin, the UK's most famous brand of supercar, have been making the best looking cars for years and the V8 Vantage and DB9 are perhaps the best yet with gorgeous styling, luxurious interior and one of the best engine sounds you will hear. These cars typically come with a paddle gear shift and an exhaust note to match!
Then see how the professionals do it with a passenger ride in the supercharged Ariel Atom, a car that accelerates to 60mph in 2.89 seconds. With awesome acceleration and an unbelievable sense of speed and exhilaration, this is the car you'd want to be a passenger in when it's driven to the limit. The Atom has no body panels but that makes it all the more beautiful. As you're driven round you can see all the suspension and steering working away, it truly is a unique piece of automotive engineering. You'll also find out that it is very, very fast!
Your experience will begin with registration and safety briefing on circuit driving techniques. You will then typically drive two laps in the Aston Martin before being buckled in for a minimum of one lap as a passenger in the supercharged Ariel Atom. The exact number of laps and type of Aston Martin varies by location, please check on booking. The unforgettable experience ends with a debrief.
At most locations there is an option to upgrade to a weekend date for a small fee. Please enquire on booking.
The person driving the car will be required to sign a disclaimer accepting liability in the event of damage to the vehicle. The driver will be given an option to purchase damage waiver cover when booking to minimise their financial exposure should there be an accident. Drivers are under no obligation to purchase this optional waiver. Full details are available at the time of booking.
