Take to the full circuit at Sandown for 6 laps of driving heaven in a V8, followed by 2 blistering hot laps driven by a pro.

  • Challenge your V8 skills on the mega Sandown Raceway
  • Be like Brabham, Moss and Bowe in a custom V8 race car
  • 6 huge laps driving on your own, 2 laps in the front passenger seat driven by a pro
  • Feel the force, grunt and grip at 200km/h
  • Includes experience gift pack with personalised voucher and message card

This driving experience is the best of both worlds. Not only do you get to drive a genuine V8 race car for 6 laps of the Sandown circuit on your own, but you get 2 blistering V8 hot laps in the front passenger seat too.

That means you can pretend you’re Brabham, or Moss, Brock or Bowe, Skaife or Richards hurtling around at 200km/h, and then really feel what it’s like to be driven by a real pro race driver during this 8 laps combo. That is simply awesome. And it all takes place on the famous Sandown Raceway.

Built in the early ’60s, Sandown's has long stood as the premium car racing circuit in Melbourne and is perfect for V8 hot laps. One of the key features of the circuit is an exciting back straight which leads into a very fast entry into Dandenong Road corner.

This is a track that is 3.1km long and features 13 turns to test any roadster, with plenty of speed, grunt, and grip – which is why this 8 laps combo is one of the best driving experiences on offer.

As an option available on the day, you can choose to purchase an in-car USB recording and a photo souvenir.

Enjoyable experience and something special to celebrate my 50th birthday that I'll recall for years.

The first time I've driven at over 180kmh without fear of getting a speeding ticket. Awesome day.

The event was well organised. Unfortunately the vehicle I had was suffering a little in that it had a miss and was slower due to a diff change. The DVD also failed. However they did offer me another ride, however there was at least 30 people waiting by this time and we had other commitments.

It was a gift for my dad and he loved it. Thanks

From getting the gift box with all the details in it to walking away from the v8 race track was awesome.. Loved it all...

From my experience I can not fault it... Highly recommend it to friends..

Had an absolute ball.

A great experience to be on the track with other cars.The instructor allowing us to go as hard as we wanted once we were comfortable was a great thrill.My only dissappointment was that my wife bought me a 9 lap drive and a 3 lap rear seat ride but i only received an 8 lap drive plus a 2 lap rear seat ride.The lap counter sensor is set up before pit entry so it shows 9 or 3 respectively as you drive into the in lane.Not correct so i am not happy about that.

Awesome day

Thoroughly enjoyed the experience would perhaps choose an automatic car next time haven't driven a manual for 30 odd years overall though fantastic.

Unable to hear the talking on the loud speaker only complaint I have

Amazing experience, from the Induction to the end of the experience I could not rate any higher as everyone we My Wife and I came in touch with were outstanding. This was a gift from our Girls for my 60th last Year, the only reason I rated the Location as good was selfish as I would like to have gone a little faster on my own.Cheers Guys, absolutely loved my experience.

I've told everybody how unreal it was
