ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE DAY

Lotus Cortina 6 Mile Driving Experience

This driving day allows you to experience the thrill of driving a 1963 Lotus Cortina for 6 incredible miles around a track of your choice - available in locations across the UK!

This Lotus Cortina driving experience is the perfect experience day for fans of classic cars. Driving a replica of the 1963 classic Ford Cortina Lotus for 3 miles around a track of your choice, you’ll experience the true thrill of this fantastic car. 

Long gone are the days of the primitive Ford Cortina, typically used as a family saloon car and for blending into the background. In 1963, Ford turned this ordinary car into something truly special: The Lotus Cortina. With the ability to go up to 108mph, experience the true spirit of the 60’s for 3 miles. You’ll start your experience by arriving at your chosen track and signing in. After a short safety briefing, you’ll be shown to the Lotus Cortina, where your instructor will demonstrate the controls. Next, it’s your turn! Put the pedal to the metal and tear around the track for 3 heart-thumping miles in this 1960’s classic. With your instructor will be with you every step of the way, you can sit back and enjoy the thrill!

This Lotus Cortina Driving Experience is the perfect gift for petrol-heads and fans of classic cars. Surprise them with an Experience Days voucher today!
