What Can I Expect

Drive a genuine Jordan F1 racing car! There's only one place in the world where you can go on a Jordan Formula One driving experience and it's here in the UK, at the Bovingdon Motorsport Centre in Hertfordshire.

This single seater car is the real deal. It's chassis number 1 from the 2002 F1 Grand Prix season, driven by the Japanese driver Takuma Sato. Alongside fellow racing stablemate Giancarlo Fisichella, the duo drove team Jordan Grand Prix to sixth place in the constructor's championship. Sato's best finish was fifth, at his home circuit in Suzuka.

At the time, the cars were running with Honda engines. The car has since been re-fitted with a 3.0l Judd engine, boosting bhp to 600 at 10,500rpm. Crazily impressive stuff for a car that weighs just 600kg (that's a third of the weight of an average family car!). They don't come cheap either, with this Jordan F1 car costing around £4.5million to build originally.

As the team at Bovingdon says, this Formula One racer is ‘an absolute rocket'. It becomes immediately apparent the levels of concentration and reflex the F1 drivers need to have to keep a car this fast in control. The acceleration is just SO rapid it's like nothing else on earth.

Clearly you need to build up to such a monumental event as driving a Jordan F1 car, so each experience is made up of multiple drives, allowing you to rest in between each session.

You'll learn the craft of racing through several driving workshops in preparatory vehicles. A session on the Memphis Drift Circuit in a Nissan 350z will include learning about throttle control. You'll then progress to driving an F1000 single seater on the 112 circuit, to build confidence and help with nailing those corner entry and exit points.

Then it's the big event. This is the moment you slide into that rather snug F1 driving seat, get settled in and, using everything you've learnt, take Sato's Jordan F1 car for an exhilarating session on the main Bomber B-17 track. In constant communication with your personal F1 racing instructor ahead of you in the pace car, you'll be coached, encouraged and spurred on for each and every incredible lap you drive.

As you might imagine, numbers are very limited for these exclusive Jordan F1 drives, so don't delay, once the slots have gone, they've gone!
