You've seen Formula One but did you know where most of their drivers begin their journey to racing stardom?   

The chances are they started behind the wheel of a Formula Ford race car.  Capable of an amazing 289 kph and just inches off the ground, you too can follow in their footsteps.  

These open-wheeled cars are capable of achieving lap times similar to that of a 500 bhp V8 Supercar.  And you get to drive 5 laps of the circuit.

Super responsive, you can feel the race car react to every tiny adjustment as you sweep down the straight.   There are no rev-limiters, so you can drive the car to the limits.

But that's not all. There's 2 hot laps in a 800 bhp power machine. Driven by a professional driver, you take a breathtaking launch as you cover hundreds of feet in a just a second, reaching speeds of well over 180 mph in just 9 seconds.

With just a couple of inches to the ground, 180 mph feels extremely fast.
