Ferrari & Aston Martin V8 Vantage
With rear wheel drive, near perfect balance and a totally intoxicating exhaust note, the Ferrari 360 Modena’s place in supercar history is already written. As is the Aston Martin V8 Vantage with Autocar magazine describing it as "The best Aston Martin on sale, a hugely desirable car". This is your opportunity to experience both these superb supercars in the environment they were designed for, the race track.
Powered by a 3.6 litre V8 that produces 400 bhp, the Ferrari comes alive on the Three Sisters race circuit, the power and handling will leave you gasping for breath as you power out of corners and hurtle down the straights. The Aston Martin on the other hand is all about finesse and luxury, but don’t be fooled, as at its heart beats a 4.2 litre V8 that is capable of 180 mph. The Aston Martin really is the best of British.
The Ferrari Aston / Martin experience begins with a short briefing covering safety and driving decorum at the Three Sisters race circuit. This is swiftly followed by four miles of instructor driven familiarisation laps, here you will be shown the circuit lines, braking points and car positioning. Then it’s on to the driving experience proper as you slip behind the wheel of the phenomenal Ferrari 360, putting this classic supercar through its paces for the next six spine tingling miles. With the Ferrari’s exhaust note still ringing in your ears it’s time to slide into the luxurious leather driving seat of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage for a further six miles of pure unadulterated supercar stimulation.
A short debrief and certificate presentation follows the Ferrari versus Aston Martin experience where participants can view and purchase professional photographs and DVD’s for a lasting reminder of their driving day.
Family and friends are not only welcomed, they are encouraged to come and enjoy the whole experience.
