What Can I Expect

Paul Walker loved the R34 Skyline - and we think you will too when you get to drive one! These Nissan R34 Skyline experiences take place at Bovingdon Airfield near Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire and it's a superb track to really show off how amazing this car is.

So what's all the hype about the R34? This is a car that was produced between 1999 and 2002, so surely it's outdated, old fashioned and just a bit, well, past it? Nothing could be further from the truth. These Skylines are living legends on the car scene and their value is actually going up and up. Finding a really good example of an R34 Skyline and getting to drive it on a track is a beautiful thing!

This Bovingdon circuit really lends itself to the hard and fast style of the R34. The throttle response is incredulous and there's almost no turbo lag. But the car is not over powerful. It feels perfectly balanced. With such precise steering, you can confidently sling the Skyline in and out of Bovingdon's corners, pointing the nose and letting the car do the rest.

Inside it's definitely a car of its era. It's all about the analogue and there's nothing digital about the R34. Forget 'wifi connected', this car only wants to connect with one thing - the driver. This is a totally engaging car that has more than stood the test of time and it's ready and waiting for you to leap in and get that rev counter nudging towards 8000rpm (yes, we did say 8000rpm!).
