What Can I Expect
It's time to sing 'Transformers - robots in disguise' when you meet Bumblebee the Chevrolet Camaro! Bumblebee may have transformed from a Beetle to a 1970s Camara and then to this modern Camaro as he starred in the books, cartoon and film versions, but he has remained Sam Witwicky's best friend throughout and you're about to drive him!
As we all know, Transformers are alien robots who disguise themselves by transforming into 'normal' things like cars. Bumblebee is something of a mascot for the Autobots and excels at scouting to get information and is capable of sneaking into place the bigger robots can squeeze into. Kind of useful when you're always finding yourself in battles in the war against fellow alien robots the Decepticons
When he's not in the battlezone using his fine repertoire of weaponry, he's in 'alternate mode' and looks just like your standard Chevrolet Camaro ZL1. Mind you, there's nothing average about this motor. Under the bonnet there's over 600bhp and an upgraded suspension to make it the ultimate racing car. But look closely and you might see a bee motif air freshener hanging off the rear view mirror…
Thankfully you won't witness Bumblebee in full weapons mode standing over 16ft high ready to defend the Autobots in the face of those arch enemies the Decepticons, but you'll be driving a transformer that is bright yellow with those distinctive black stripes and a whole lot of horsepower under your right foot!
Bumblebee will be making appearances at different circuits in the UK this motoring season. All tracks are around a mile long and you can go for a trio or half dozen miles in this Transformer car.
If you've always been a fan of Optimus Prime (leader of the Autobots) or admired that naughty Decepticon leader Megatron and loved the books, cartoon and film franchise since year dot, we think you'll love this chance to drive this lookalike Chevrolet Camaro Bumblebee Transformer. Time to get revved up!
