Summer 2012 is set to be Britain’s most international summer yet. With the influx of thousands of tourists celebrating the Olympics, enthusiasm is already running high – and now England has progressed to the quarter finals of the European Championships, excitement has reached fever pitch! In honour of the top five footballing favourites who have made it through, we’ve put together some fantastic motoring experiences that pay fitting tribute to each country. May the best team win…
There can only be one winner when it comes to the best British car…and it’s the Aston Martin which has raced to the forefront. Take to the track for an unforgettable day out driving either the AMV8 or the DB9 with professional guidance. You can’t beat the thrill you get from whizzing around in the 4.3L AMV8 or the incredible 5.9L beast that is the DB9. Experience the fine combination of luxury and power that has made Aston Martin Britain’s most desirable supercar. After all, if it’s good enough for James Bond, it’s good enough for us!
Aston Martin Experience
Widely thought of as the world’s most famous supercar, the Ferrari surely is one of Italy’s greatest exports. Combining a beautifully luxurious exterior with a performance level that is off the chart, this stunning Italian supercar boasts a monstrous 4.3L V8 engine and is considered as one of the ultimate driver’s vehicles across the world. With this great track driving day, you can experience the power and precision of the outrageous Ferrari on a racing circuit! Experience the best of Italy behind the wheel of this stunning car.
In footballing terms, we may harbour a bit of animosity towards Germany…after all, we’ve seen them triumph on penalties at our expense more times than we care to remember! However, as well as being annoyingly good at football, the Germans have also produced one of the most legendary cars in the world, and for that we will always be grateful! The stunning Porsche 997 Turbo utilises years of experience and driving excellence; a 3.6L turbo charged engine produces 480bhp, hits 0 – 60 mph in an incredible 3.2 seconds, and has a top speed of 200mph. Indulge in every driver’s dream and get behind the wheel of this beautiful German supercar with this fantastic experience.
Take your skills to the next level as you celebrate all things Spanish. The SEAT Leon Cupra offers exhilaration and driving at its best – there’s no chance of a siesta when you’re behind the wheel of this awesome vehicle! The SEAT Trackstar Experience gives you the opportunity to learn all the techniques and necessary methods from your instructor, before taking the vehicle out on the track with expert tuition at your side. With an almost unnatural 265 BHP at its disposal, the SEAT experience promises a fantastic day out for those people who crave performance and outstanding agility. You’ll leave with a new-found appreciation for all things Spanish!
France…home of cheese, wine, love…and the awesome Peugeot 106 Rally! Moving away from the slick supercars we’ve already seen, this amazing French motor possesses rock solid suspension and incredible handling – making it perfect to take off-road for some exhilarating fun! This fantastic activity is your chance to participate in a half day rally experience, where you will be driving the Peugeot 106 Rally, with bucket seats, roll cage and four point safety harness. To further enhance the authenticity of your experience, you will take the Peugeot 106 out onto their specialist gravel track reaching speeds up to 70mph. It really is all about the Va-Va-Voom…
