What happens on the day
On your first day you will book into your hotel and you and your guest will have a opportunity to utilise hotel leisure & spa facilities. In the evening you will receive a welcome and a familiarisation briefing, giving you details of the following dayâ€™s activities from members of the F1 Team at the hotel. Youâ€™ll then settle down to a 4 course dinner for yourself and your guest.
In the morning, after breakfast, you and your guest and the other participants will be transferred to the racetrack. On arrival at the centre youâ€™ll normally be asked to sign an indemnity form followed by a short briefing on the circuit, safety procedures and driving techniques. Then your driving begins! Youâ€™ll have some familiarisation laps in a Performance Training Car first, before driving 5 laps in a in a GT Car (Ferrari 360 or similar) to get used to driving on the track. Youâ€™ll then complete 7 laps in a Caterham Super 7 and 10 laps in a Van Dieman Single seater before getting behind the wheel of your F1 racing car! Your 8 laps of the circuit in the F1 car will be followed by a wind down as you are flung around the track during a high speed passenger ride â€“ just to show you how itâ€™s really done! After all that driving, youâ€™ll be hungry, so you and your guest will have a hot lunch before going for your de-brief and presentation. Finally, youâ€™ll be transferred back to the hotel, where you can sit and reflect on your dayâ€™s activities!
