How to Drive The Car Of Your Dreams!

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

Everyone who loves cars has a fantasy garage full of vehicles that we would dearly love to own. You can’t consider yourself a petrolhead if you don’t lust after the latest Ferrari or Aston Martin, or even a hot Mercedes. Sadly for most of us, owning any of these cars will remain the stuff of dreams unless we win the lottery. However, there might still be a way to get in the driving seat of your dream machine.

Consider a Driving Experience

Driving experiences are a great way to get a taste of the supercar lifestyle, without having to pay the massive costs of ownership such as fuel, insurance, servicing and road tax… not to mention buying it in the first place!

If you can’t afford a supercar like the Ford GT, consider a driving experience

Depending on the vehicle you want to take for a spin, there is a huge choice of experiences to choose from, to suit your requirements as well as your budget. For a small fee, you could buy yourself a high-speed passenger lap, holding on for dear life as an expert instructor roars round your favorite race track. Or perhaps you’d rather get a bit messy with an off-road four-wheel-drive experience, or a drive on a rally course. Or maybe you’d like to be a racing driver for the day and squeeze yourself behind the wheel of a single seater. You can even learn advanced driving techniques, or give your child an early driving experience before they are old enough to legally drive. The ultimate petrolhead can also choose a supercar experience with a number of different cars available to play with on the day.

Where to Find Your Ideal Driving Experience

Experiences are available across the UK and the globe and are offered by experienced companies, racing circuits, and even a number of car manufacturers. So for example, if you’re a Mercedes-Benz fan you could try a Mercedes driving experience to enjoy German luxury and performance. Driving days are also held at most racing circuits, so you could even follow in the footsteps of motor racing icons and test your skills at the likes of Donington Park, or Silverstone. What’s more, you get expert tuition from your instructors, and even better, you can drive as fast as you like without running the risk of a speeding ticket!

Not for You?

Driving experiences make a great treat for yourself if you want to take on the challenge of driving a supercar at its limits, but if you’re not a fan of cars, a driving experience will make an amazing gift for the petrolhead in your life, or that person who is impossible to buy for. When it comes to driving experiences, there really is something to suit everyone.

Don’t forget to check the terms and conditions before you book to ensure you get the best value for your money. Most companies require you to have a full driving licence that you’ll need to produce on the day, and there are sometimes height and weight limits depending on the experience you have chosen. Different companies also specify varying conditions on how many cars you can drive, and how long you get to spend in the driving seat, so make sure you shop around for a good deal.
