An introduction to the unmodified Formula Ford Spirit or Van Diemen race cars begins your racing experience.

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

One of the best experiences I have done a number of heart thumping trills before, but this one is amongst the best fun I have ever had. The staff were professional and patient. A single seat formula race car chance of a life time. Fast, safe and satisfying. Still smiling days after the day. Would recommend to anyone who wants to experience what the professionals race drivers do for a living. I think this is far better than the V8 Supercar experience.

Enjoyed the day very much. Will go again. I think the second time will be even more enjoyable than the first. It was cold and the track still had some wet patches the day I went. Would like to go again in warmer weather.

This was a gift to my wife. Formula fordNot only did she have a great time so did the family.Totally recommend a Thrill Experience

I think the experience is very overpriced
