Just as many Formula 1 drivers started their career, you too can follow in their footsteps and feel what it's like to be just inches from the ground going at break-neck speed.

To kick the day off, there's an introduction to the unmodified, Formula Ford Spirit or Van Diemen race cars.

Capable of over 2G around the corners and faster than most European sports cars around the track, you'll be in racing heaven with a big smile to go with it.

Start with two orientation laps where your instructor shares some valuable insights.  You'll cover the track and learn about the apexes, straights and optimal braking points. 

The real fun begins when 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 Wodonga circuit, designed by V8 legend Brad Jones.

Take a break and a chance to evaluate your laps with your instructor.  Then jump back into the race car for another ten laps of this premier race track.  No rev limiters, drive the car to your limits.  This is what racing is all about.

Feel the super responsive race car react to every tiny adjustment you make as you sweep through corners pulling loads of up to 2Gs.  It's super-fast, loud and incredibly fun all wrapped into one fantastic driving experience.

In the event of poor weather conditions, the experience will still go ahead unless advised by the operator of the experience.  If your date is cancelled, you will be rescheduled for another date.

Allow approximately 2-3 hours for the experience.

Available throughout the year dependent on availability.  There are four sessions during the day. We may also run twilight sessions from November to February at 4 pm.

Valid for one person.  

When you are driving, you are responsible for any damage done to the vehicle.  You must hold a minimum of a P standard manual driving license and be able to confidently use a manual gearbox.

Minimum age 16 years.  Maximum weight 120kg.  Maximum height 196cm. Minimum height 155cm. Not suitable for pregnant women and those suffering from certain medical conditions.  We recommend you contact your doctor if you are unsure whether this experience is suitable.
