Have you ever imagined what it would feel like to be behind the wheel of a race car?

Well, at Silverstone you actually can experience this feeling!

There are a range of driving experiences you can go on from head to heads, hot rides, single seaters, Aston Martins and Ferraris. With so much choice available, the difficult part is almost deciding what experience to go for rather than the actual driving! You can even take your own car or bike along on the track days and use the state of the art pit and paddock areas, so why not give your trusty old coupe the 5 star treatment it deserves?
