What Can I Expect

The F1 Safety Car driving experience - drive not one, but two high-performance cars just like the ones used to lead the pack at Formula One races. Get ready to take an AMG and an Aston for a spin at your choice of track, with an Ariel Atom passenger ride thrown in too!

We are offering these Formula One Safety Car drives at Prestwold circuit in Leicestershire, Sywell track in Northamptonshire and Elvington airfield circuit in Yorkshire. For a small fee you can upgrade to premium circuits such as Goodwood and Brands Hatch for that real race track feel.

Since the late 90s, Mercedes has been the safety car of choice for F1. Nowadays, the ‘caution period’ duties (i.e. leading the pack of cars when the yellow flag is out) are shared between Mercedes and Aston Martin. Both excellent choices we feel. This unique experience brings two of the best to the track for you to drive.

You will be driving for three-miles in the Mercedes AMG GTR and another three miles in the Aston Martin Vantage generation 2. Both are stunning looking cars with amazing performance credentials, which mean they can put down some pretty decent lap times!

A pro driver will be alongside you in the front passenger seat whilst you drive each safety car. They will give you tips and direction on the racing line, the braking points and so on of the circuit, to ensure you make the most of your time behind the wheel.

Unlike on Grand Prix race day, there’s no pressure for you, as there is no Race Director calling the shots and no procession of multi-million pound F1 cars driving right behind you. Enjoy your time in the AMG and Aston, savouring your F1 safety car driving experience!
