What Can I Expect

Mini racers get ready to go on a brilliant junior race car experience! These racing car sessions give 10-17 year olds the chance to drive one, two or three fast cars. What's more, we've got venues around the UK, so you won't have to drive far for your little darlings to have some junior track day fun.

Whilst there's no actual head-to-head racing on these junior sessions, the cars all boast serious racing pedigree, with a Martini Porsche Boxster, a Subaru Impreza and a Mitsubishi Eclipse in the line-up.

The Porsche has a fancy paint job, racing driver seats and harnesses with upgraded bits and bobs all over the car. As if the Boxster wasn't nippy enough already, this 'S' version with iconic Martini race styling and 3.4l engine make it a veritable pocket rocket and kids just love it.

The Subaru STi WRX is quite simply a legend. The WRX has won six World Rally Championships and no less than 46 individual race wins. It's an awesome car and that flat four 'Boxer' engine certainly makes all the right noises.

The Mitsubishi Eclipse - you can't miss this car! In gleaming Kawasaki Green, this Eclipse is just like Brian O'Connor's 1995 Mitsu from the Fast and the Furious film. O'Connor had trouble keeping this racer in line, so let's see how the youngsters get on in this mean green racing machine.

The only requirements for these junior race car days are that miniature motorists are 10-17 years old and at least 4ft 5" tall for the pedals. No previous driving experience is necessary, as the cars are all dual-controlled with engine kill switches, so the instructor remains in control of the car at all times.

That's not to say the teens won't be driving the car themselves. Most children soon get the hang of it and start motoring round the track faster than you can say 'well done darling'. That leaves you to watch proudly, as they whizz right past, a grin akin to that of a Cheshire cat on their faces. That's the sort of brilliant reaction a junior race car day gets!

      I’d purchased 2x junior Porsche drives for my grandchildren 2 yrs ago. Covid hit so was unable to use the vouchers. Into the Blue, have been amazing, extending the use by date continually to ensure we could use them. We finally got to use them on Sunday 31st October 2021! The weather couldn’t have been worse. Torrential rain & gale force winds. We arrived at the Three Sisters Racetrack & it was so busy, we couldn’t believe it. The children (12 &14 boy & girl) joined the very long queue for the Porsche drive. I had seen reviews the day before & people were saying, they’d queued for hours, so was not looking forward to the wait. There was nowhere to shelter from the rain. After a few moments an instructor came over to our children, & upgraded them to a Lamborghini & a Ferrari because the queue was so long for the Porsche!! The children were so happy. We did feel sorry for the others in the queue, but obviously we weren’t going to refuse. Following the drive I’d arranged for them to have a few laps on the full racetrack at full speed. The instructor came over for them and invited their parents to join them!!! My daughter kept her eyes shut all the way, but they were all so excited. They all couldn’t stop saying how good it had been. The children were both saying who would pass their driving test first, so they could come back & drive on the full track. I have to say huge thanks to Into the Blue & the organisers of this event at Three Sisters, with all their help, they made the children’s experience first class. I would definitely recommend. The only negative was, I am a wheelchair user, & I had to stay in the car. Aside from no cover for anyone to shelter, the car part is very uneven gravel & there are very big potholes all over. The site is not suitable at all for people with disabilities. Such a shame.
