Your experience starts with a comprehensive safety briefing and introduction to the unmodified Formula Ford Spirit or Van Diemen race cars.

With the orientation session complete, you climb behind the wheel of the Formula Ford. Strapped into the open cockpit with full 6-point harness and a quick release steering wheel it’s time to drive for a five-lap session of the corporate hill section of the south circuit, one of Australia’s premier race tracks. 

Feel the super responsive race car react to every small adjustment you make as you sweep through corners pulling loads of up to 2Gs.   There are no rev-limiters so that you can drive the car to the limits.

We drove down from Hornsby for 5 laps, just getting used to the car and it was over. My son and I enjoyed the drive we should have done a 10 lap option.


I was given 5 laps as a gift thought might be good but ended up buying another 10 laps.great experience and highly recommend.


I would highly recommend anyone that feels the need for speed to experience the Formula Ford Race Car events. Driving a real race car with no-one in your ear to tell you when to hit the brakes or change gears is the way to go. They are a go-kart on steroids The staff were fantastic, the sighting laps with the experts were worth the price of admission alone, well almost. Dont wait, do it.
