What if there were a simple way to have fun in a V8, to enjoy its speed and power, without having to do any of the driving?

Well, the V8 hot laps are just that.  It’s an exhilarating event where you experience the thrill and action in a V8 race car right from the front passenger seat. 

It all takes place at Sandown Raceway.  Built in the early ’60s, Sandown Raceway has long stood as the premium car racing circuit in Melbourne. 

It features long front and back straights which make it very fast.  Perfect for hot laps in a V8.

On the day, you receive a briefing to learn about the vehicle safety features, the track, apexes and race lines. Your car is prepared and maintained for circuit racing and is specially fitted to give you the maximum experience. 

With a race suit and helmet on, jump into the front passenger seat.  Your professional driver takes you for two laps at breakneck speed around the full Sandown circuit. 

Reach ridiculous speeds of over 200 kph and feel the G-forces that race drivers find so addictive.

It's the ultimate thrill of V8 racing that's got to be experienced.

Well it was brought for my son's 16th Birthday gift and he was Over the Moon about it ..he had great time.

Really well organised

It was really well organised and all the staff on the day were really helpful and friendly and made you feel excited about it all.

Really enjoyed it, it was a great time.

Had a blast. Thank

Enjoyed the driveThought the information and organising was poor on the day

The day was very good and very happy with the driver of the car


Very efficient setup. Staff were terrific. The whole experience was fantastic.

Very good

The actual experience was very impersonal. It felt like you were just a part of a production line moving from one spot to the next. The staff were friendly but there was no great interaction. No explanation of the driver, the car, the speeds you may get to, etc. You got in the car did the two laps then got out why the other person was there waiting to get in. There was no one there after that to ask you about your experience and direct you where to go next. Disappointing.
