Overview

Drive a single seater race car in Taupo and experience the thrill that is normally limited only to professionals. We have designed and raced these cars, and offer you the rare chance to feel what it’s like to be behind the wheel of an Indy or Formula 1 car at Taupo Motorsport Park in New Zealand.

Ideal for experienced drivers as well as beginners, this race car experience affords you an absolute thrill, with nothing between you, the car and the track.

Our DVD tuition acquaints you with the fundamentals of driving on a race track and shares tricks on how to drive these special race cars. When you are done, you transition to our tuition lap in our familiarization V8 car. One of our professional drivers takes you and your preferred passenger on board for two laps around the track to familiarize yourself with the lines around the racetrack.

Then it’s your turn to take the driver’s seat.

Getting harnessed to the seat of a Formula Challenge single seater makes for an experience you will never forget. The sensation of the engine roaring to life only inches behind you quickens your pulse. As your heart pounds, you clutch in and engage the first gear, punching push buttons on the steering wheel similar to those of an F1. You ease off the clutch, and off you go. As you make your way onto the track, you’ll be amazed at how these cars are easy to drive and how fast they go.

Before long, you spot the chequered flag, signalling it’s time to return into the pit lane. It may all seem like a blur, so we make sure you walk away with a proof that it wasn’t just a dream. You receive a certificate that lists your fastest lap time.

While prior driving experience is not necessary to drive these cars, knowing how to operate a clutch gives you an edge, as the cars you are going to drive come with a clutch.

*NB All products are based on Taupo Track 3. However occasionally when we have to use Track 1 or 2(over twice as long) you'll get the same drive time or more on the track but you'll only do half the number of laps. 

Please note our dates can change at short notice, if this happens we will advise you on other dates available.
