For aspiring young racing drivers the opportunity to smoke the tyres in a supercar has just arrived!
And it won’t just be the kids who are screaming with delight once they get behind the wheel of a Lamborghini or a Ferrari – it’ll be the sound of the tyres as they stop dreaming and start driving.
The amazing 6th Gear Experience offers any young person – boy or girl – the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a legendary supercar.
The only proviso is that they are at least 4ft 10ins tall and can reach the pedals!
Then the budding Jenson Button’s or hopeful Lewis Hamilton’s can choose between a real Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Ferrari or Audi R8 to make their dreams come true.
Ideal as a holiday treat, Christmas or birthday present, or even as an exam pass or other incentive, a TeenTrackAttack supercar drive is exactly that – a thrill-a-minute driving experience.
All cars feature an automatic gearbox and are very straightforward to drive, so no previous driving experience is necessary, although more confident drivers can opt to change gears using the ‘paddle shift’. Cars are also fitted with dual controls, and an experienced instructor sits alongside in the passenger seat to ensure each driver gets the maximum enjoyment in complete safety.
6th Gear Experience currently operates from two principal tracks, at Prodrive, Kenilworth, Warwickshire, and Elvington Airfield, York. Two new locations, near London and Manchester will be added shortly.
TeenTrackAttack prices start at £89 for 10 – 15 minutes driving in one of the four cars above on a specially coned circuit.
