What Can I Expect

This Italian Job driving experience is the ultimate for Italian Job fans! You will be driving three vehicles, the likes of which were made famous by the iconic 1969 heist film. Lined up in the paddock you'll find a bus, a Mini and Jag for you to drive.

The British Motor Corporation Mini is very much the star of the show. Thanks to the compact size and nimbleness, the trio of Minis went on the maddest car chase ever through the Italian city of Turin. Down steps, under arcades, across dams and even around Fiat's famous Lingotto factory roof-top track, these teeny cars went everywhere.

You will be driving a bright red Mini Cooper S on this ultimate Italian Job experience. Just as nippy as you'd hoped, you'll have a ball driving this Mini around the track - and doesn't it look small compared to all the other cars in attendance.

Charlie Croker's Coach Tour bus was pivotal to the Italian Job plot. As the Minis cleared the city walls of Turin, they were driven up the ramps into the coach, whilst it was on the mountainous road connecting Northern Italy to Switzerland. The coach was the perfect cover for getting the gold back into the UK, but as we know there was a bit of a hitch in the end…

Thankfully, there'll be no treacherous mountain hair-pins when you get to drive this doppelganger Croker bus. It's just like the one used in the film, right down the opening rear doors and ramps. It's proper fun driving a classic bus and even more so when it's an Italian Job version.

Last, but by no means least on this Italian Job driving experience, you'll meet the Jaguar E-Type. Gang boss Charlie Croker had three fast cars on standby 'just in case anything goes wrong', two of which were Series 1 Jags. You'll be taking a sleek and lovely Series 2 E-type out for a spin around the race track, giving you the chance to drive it like a getaway car in a famous heist movie!

We think this is the ultimate Italian Job driving experience to pay homage to the ultimate heist and road trip movie that is the Italian Job. Book your slot at your choice of circuit and get ready to go for a blast Charlie Croker style.
