V8 Race Car Driving - 10 Laps Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park


  • Drive a real V8 race car
  • Professional race car driver as an instructor
  • Speeds of up to 200kph!

Are you Holden hero, a Ford Fanatic or just someone who likes V8's? Come and get into one of our race prepared V8's and feel the thrill and excitement as you take to the track at the Taupo Motorsport Park for 10 laps of driving and adrenalin pumping fun.

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
  • Choice of Holden or Ford race car (subject to availability)
  • Podium presentation after your drive including certificate

Your on-track experience starts by getting suited up in our race suit and race boots then into our tuition car for an introduction lap around the circuit with one of our in-car consultants talking you around the track while you're in the passenger seat. This will give you an idea of what to expect and what you've got yourself in for! And if you want, you can take a spectator along for the ride so they can experience the thrill of being on a racetrack.

Having chosen your favourite, it's now time to drive it! Get strapped into one of our V8's and experience the stunning performance of these cars as you and your instructor lap the circuit at speeds you never thought possible for a car. With your laps complete but your heart still racing, you head back to the pitlane where you receive a presentation pack including certificate complete with your fastest lap time as proof that it wasn't just a dream.
