Ever wanted to experience the absolute rush of actually driving a V8 Holden? Well, here's your chance. This race day is a V8 fanatic's dream come true! Under the guidance of your instructor you'll put pedal to the metal and bring a V8 Holden up to speed at one of New Zealand's premier race circuits!
Get ready for the sheer exhilaration of driving a fully-modified fire-breathing 400kw 6000cc V8 Holden Commodore race car with a six-speed manual, full roll cage, race seats, race suspension, race brakes, premium Bridgestone race tyres and a full NZV8 race car aerodynamic package!
Upon arrival at the racetrack, you will complete the required paperwork and receive a pre-drive briefing. You'll then be kitted out with your race suit and safety helmet. Feel your adrenalin rise as you are then taken on two in-car demonstration laps with your instructor. Under the guidance of your racing professional you’ll learn how to corner at speed, gauge braking points, cornering lines and more.
Then your experience goes up yet another notch to extreme as you are strapped into the drivers seat for some sensational high-speed laps around the race circuit in a Holden V8 beast, under the expert guidance of one of our professional racing instructors, which can include a three-time National Champion.
During your V8 Holden race experience you’ll receive a two-lap in-car demonstration session, followed by you driving the V8 on the race circuit for a four-lap drive session! You’ll also receive a personally printed and signed attendance certificate. Put yourself in a Holden V8 hot seat and you wont be able to wipe the smile from your dial for weeks!
The price quoted is for one person. You will be one-on-one with your instructor, with you driving the car. The total number of attendees on any given day may vary.
Spectators are welcome.

We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
