Get a jump start on your budding F1 careers and jump into some amazing single seater Van Diemen race cars, ready to tear up the track like all your racing heroes with this Single Seater Driving Experience for Two. Your cars for the day will be FF1800 single seaters, a distinctive-looking open-wheel race car, sitting just inches off the ground, that’s an undeniable thrill to drive. Flick the fuel switch, punch the starter button and slip into first gear to feel the power hiding beneath the bonnet – then set off like a bullet as soon as you hit the accelerator. You’ll need to learn the ropes from an expert instructor before you can be let loose on the track, and luckily there’s a couple waiting in the wings just for you. Take note as you’re both driven round on a demonstration lap – it’ll be your turn next! You’ll each get four 1.8 mile laps in your own single seater, plenty of time to find those racing lines and perfect your corner-taking skills. At the end of your final lap you’ll both be presented with a certificate to take away as souvenir of your day – as if the memories alone weren’t enough!
