Ferrari Vs Formula Ford Racing Car Experience
What better way to find out how good the Ferrari 360 is than to compare it to a real racing car, the Formula Ford Single Seater. This fantastic double driving experience is ideally suited to the Three Sisters track, giving the driver the opportunity to compare and contrast a classic supercar with a purpose built race car.
The Ferrari F360 is a stunning supercar and has all the credentials you would expect. The 400 brake horsepower from the 3.6 litre V8 will catapult you from zero to sixty miles per hour in just four and a half seconds, keep the pedal to the metal and it will top out at a phenomenal 183 mph. Add to that the lightweight aluminium chassis and it soon becomes obvious why it has rapidly achieved it's iconic status.
The Formula Ford may "only" be powered by a 1.8 litre zetec producing 115 brake horsepower, but don't let that fool you. Weighing in at only 600 kgs this is a true racing car, the power to weight ratio combined with astonishing levels of performance and grip make this single seater a match for most of the supercars in the Three Sisters stable.
The Ferrari Vs Single Seater Experience begins with a short briefing covering all aspects of safety and driving etiquette at the Three Sisters Circuit. From there, it's over to the track where your instructor will drive for four miles to give you an insight into the racing lines, braking points and car positioning. With this phase completed it's then time for you to take to the wheel of the Ferrari, pushing to find the limits of this beautiful car for the next six miles. Having completed the Ferrari drive, say goodbye to your instructor, as you will be driving for the next 20 minutes in a single seater Formula Ford racing car. The Ferrari Vs Single Seater Experience is a wonderful gift for any motorsport fan or petrolhead.
A short debrief and certificate presentation follows the Ferrari versus Formula Ford 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.
