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 & 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 V8 race car aerodynamic package!
Upon arrival at the racetrack, you will complete the required paperwork and receive a pre-drive briefing. Then you will be kitted out in your race suit and safety helmet. Feel your adrenalin rise as you’re then taken for two demonstration laps around the race circuit with your Holden race experience instructor. Under the guidance of your racing professional you’ll learn how to corner at speed, gauge braking points and cornering lines more.
Then your racing experience goes up yet another notch to extreme as you are strapped into the drivers seat of some sensational high-speed laps around the race circuit under the expert guidance of one of professional race instructors, which can include a three-time National Champion.
During your V8 Holden 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 session! You’ll also receive a personally printed and signed attendance certificate. Put yourself in the Holden hot seat you wont be able to wipe the smile from your dial for weeks!
