Single-Seater Race Car Driving Experience - 10 Laps


  • Get behind the wheel of a single-seater race car
  • 10 laps of driving fun
  • Certificate on completion

In an experience normally reserved for the professionals, you now have the chance to feel the thrill of driving a single seater race car! These race cars provide you with a unique experience of what it's like to be driving a Formula 1 or Indycar on one of New Zealand's great tracks.

What's Included?

  • 10 laps of Taupo Motorsport Park Track 3
  • Use of overalls, helmets and race boots
  • DVD based drivers briefing
  • Tuition lap to learn the track
  • Podium presentation after your drive
  • Presentation pack including certificate with your fastest lap and photo of you and your racecar

An experience that will suit both novice and experienced drivers alike, these race cars offer drivers that pure sensation of just you, the track and the car. You'll start by watching a DVD tuition which explains the basics of driving on a race track and also the tricks to driving these unique race cars. Then you'll move onto the tuition lap where one of the in-car consultants will take you and a passenger of your choice for a couple of laps around the track to learn the lines around the racetrack. Then it's all down to you!

Getting strapped into the Formula 1-styled single seater is an experience all on it's own. As you hit the starter button and feel the engine burst into life only inches behind you, your heart starts to race. Clutch in and engage first gear using the F1-style push buttons on the steering wheel, ease off the clutch and you're away. You'll be surprised at how easy they are to drive and how fast they are as you make your way onto the track.

Then just as quickly as it started, you'll see the chequered flag and it's time to head back into the pit lane.
