Formula One racing has to be one of the most extreme forms of motorsport, as machines don't really come much quicker than the lightweight brilliance of F1. Unfortunately for us mere general public, we won't ever get the chance to take a chicane at 150mph or power up the straight with Lewis Hamilton hot on our tails - but for the next best thing, this Formula Ford single seat experience is ideal. With a 1600cc engine and a body that weighs next to nothing - this incredible vehicle will propel you up to some frightening speeds - and back down again in time for the corners!

Your single seat driving experience will begin with a safety brief from your instructor before donning the safety gear and getting ready to begin the motorsport, starting with a 2 lap passenger ride in a Ford Fiesta S. Demonstrating the racing lines and breaking points, this double passenger lap will soon be a memory after you've moved into the driver's seat and started lap 1 or 3 at the wheel yourself, gearing you up for the main event... the Formula Ford single seater. Now that you've familiarised yourself with the circuit, you can experience 6 unforgettable laps - solo! You'll then finish up back in the classroom for a debrief and to be presented with a certificate.

Formula Ford Driving Thrill in Castle Combe

the whole booking process was a bit tortuous... as for the experience day itself, the staff were excellent and the day was good. - my only gripe would be that we brought our two year old twins to the circuit and the experience day lasting some 4 hours (including a lot of hanging around) tested their patience a bit - maybe some child's facilities would be good.

The day was fantastic, i thoroughly enjoyed it. More contructive de-briefing is all that is missing, and some decent coffee!!!
