Take an Aston Martin DB9 for a thrilling spin around the track in Oxfordshire! We like this experience because you get to drive the latest incarnation from Aston Martin, launched in 2004. The DB9 is built in Gaydon and it's a true delight to drive a British super car.
This airfield circuit is 1.5 miles long and is roomy enough for you to properly give it some in the DB9, so you can really feel the power from that 5.9l V12 engine that boasts an impressive 470bhp. On this experience you'll be driving the DB9 for a full four laps with an instructor beside you in the passenger seat.
If you go for the Aston experience with hot lap, after your driving laps in the DB9 you will hop in to the passenger seat of a performance car. One of the centre's professional drivers will be at the wheel as you get to see just how far you push one of these sports cars around the track.
On this Aston Martin DB9 driving experience you really will be driving a homegrown supercar. Even Top Gear decided the DB9 was just too cool for the 'cool wall' on their TV show, so this Aston was awarded its own 'sub zero fridge' category of coolness. You simply have to drive this car!
