Children as young as ten can now feel the thrill of actually driving a Ferrari 458 Italia or Lamborghini LP570 Performante supercar, both capable of over 200mph, through leading experience provider, TrackDays.co.uk.
The supercars are available as part of TrackDays.co.uk’s Junior Platinum Supercar experience where children aged between ten and 17 get to drive the cars for six miles around a racetrack under full supervision. With the Easter holidays approaching, this new package enables parents and grandparents to give their children and grandchildren an Easter to remember.
With prices starting from just £79.00, the Junior Platinum Supercar experience can be enjoyed at ten locations around the UK, including North Wales’ Anglesey Circuit as seen on TV show Fifth Gear, and Dunsfold Park in Surrey, which many will know from BBC’s Top Gear. The experience includes a welcome to the venue followed by an introductory briefing session from a qualified instructor before the supervised drive commences.
When driven by a qualified adult in test track conditions, the Ferrari 458 Italia’s 562 bhp V8 will power the car to 62 mph (100 km/h) in an incredible 3.4 seconds and on to a top speed of 210 mph. The Lamborghini LP570 Performante is equally as exciting, and is powered by a V10 of equal power, completing the same sprint in 3.9 seconds and achieving a maximum speed of 201 mph.
Dan Jones at TrackDays.co.uk, commented:
“We are incredibly excited to be able to bring this experience to kids who probably never imagined that they could end up driving the car of their dreams, or from the poster on their bedroom wall. It’s certainly a step up from a first driving experience in their parents’ car to get behind the wheel of a 200mph+ Ferrari or Lamborghini!
“Along with our extensive range of Junior Driving Experiences starting from an affordable £39.00, now is a great time to book in readiness for the Easter holidays at a wide range of UK locations. Whether it’s this supercar driving experience, a passenger ride in a Chevrolet Camaro styled on Transformers’ “Bumblebee”, driving a lorry or simply getting in some very early driving instruction practice, these experiences will certainly give your kids something to tell their friends when they return to school.”
