Drive a Caterham 7 with this wonderful vintage car driving experience in Oxfordshire. These vintage cars are beautiful, fast, and offer a truly different driving experience!
- Bicester (Oxfordshire)
- Price for 1 Participant
This driving experience in Oxfordshire lets you drive a vintage
sports car for six glorious laps, getting a real feel for how motor
racing used to be, back in the day! The Caterham 7 came to be after
the Lotus ended production of the Lotus Seven in 1972, and Caterham
picked up where they left off.
This experience is a wonderful blast from the past, particularly for those who's heads are not turned quite so much by the flashy, ostentatious Supercars of today. The Caterham 7 is of a different class, the sort of sports car that will inspire you to pop on some driving gloves and a dashing scarf before you head off for the driving day!Once you have arrived and been welcomed to the centre, your Caterham 7 experience will begin with a welcome brief - covering registration, track regulations and the basic techniques behind driving the incredible Caterham. You'll then be let loose behind the wheel for 4 hair raising laps, pushing hard into corners and opening up on the straights; allowing you to get some authentic, hands-on experience in one of the UK's kit-car track racing darlings! With an expert instructor sat alongside you in the passenger seat, you'll have a whole session to enjoy the Caterham before a score-card debrief follows receiving a certificate.
This Caterham driving experience is available on selected weekdays & selected Saturdays (mostly Fridays) from March - November.
Min age 17 yrs with full driving licence, which may need to be shown on the day. Min height 5ft, Max is 6'6". Max weight 18 stone. Please ask if you have any concerns at all about size or weight.

Good value opportunity to drive a Caterham, even if it's over in moments! Airfield-based track suited the Caterham well and I liked the fact that you could add another car on the day at a discounted rate, although I personally didn't take advantage of this.
My husband very much enjoyed the day and would do it again. The organisation was superb and so friendly - made a good day out.
it was a good day, as we headed out it poured down and still had a brilliant time. I wish the Speedo was working on th caterham 7 and that I could record my experience.
