What you can expect

Visit the Queensland Raceways to enjoy five exhilarating driving laps in a real V8 race car before switching seats with a professional driver for an additional three passenger laps. Motorsports enthusiasts should add this driving experience to their bucket list to experience the best of both worlds.

The day begins with a pre-drive safety briefing and time to familiarise yourself with the car and iconic race track that you’ll be driving on. Then, it’s time to put on a racing suit, helmet and strap in for a heart-racing drive. With no speed limits to abide by, drivers can truly test their driving skills and the limit of the V8 race car on the race track. Once you’ve completed the drive, it’s time to sit back and let the experts do the driving zipping you around the track on three passenger laps.
