Take in the atmosphere of Silverstone and feel like a genuine F1 racing driver with this exclusive Silverstone Single Seater Experience.
Our guide to Formula Silverstone Single Seater Experience
Engineered to give you a true F1 feeling, this car is like nothing you’ve ever driven before, boasting a manual four-speed racing gearbox, unbelievable cornering grip, amazingly responsive handling and extreme speed.
All your F1 heroes started in cars similar to the one you’ll be driving, and your second session gives you the same amount of driving time as a typical single-seater race: this is the closest you’re ever going to get to open-wheeled racing without becoming a professional. You’ll be taught by an ARDS-licensed instructor, just like the racing professionals.
What happens on the day?
On arrival at Silverstone, you’ll receive a detailed safety briefing and a chance to familiarise yourself with Silverstone’s specially-designed Stowe Circuit. For your first session, you’ll take your amazing Single Seater round the circuit following a pace car, building up your speed and confidence as you get used to the car’s controls.
After a short break, you’ll be on your own out on the track to prove your racing mettle, using all of your skills and wits to go as fast as you think you can handle. At the end of the day, you’ll take part in a group debrief and the chance to let your heart settle back to resting before starting the journey home.
