Thanks (finally!) for the awesome experience we purchased for our daughter's 21st, and thanks for the bonus laps. Shannon was absolutely buzzing and thoroughly enjoyed herself. We may have purchased a further package if the 20% discount lasted somewhat longer than just 3 days!

Great way to spend a day out. The Lambo was an epic drive and the hot lap with Eddie in the Evo X will leave you questioning how it's possible for a stock road car to have that much grip around corners. Definitely a must do!

Really great day on the track. Favourites were the Lamborghini and Lotus. Not so keen on the Ferrari. Instructors were awesome with a special mention for Stu and Carl. Highly recommended

I had an absolutely fantastic day! There was a bit of a delay while we waited for the fog to clear but that really wasn't a problem. Just the sheer exhilaration of hopping into your dream car and driving it is something that will stay with you for a lifetime. I drove the Ferrari F430 and the power and acceleration was something to behold. I could have driven around the track all day! Also had a blast in the Aston Martin and the hotlap in the Lotus Exige was out of this world. Photos and videos don't really do it justice and you actually have to drive the cars to get the most from this experience. Thank you to my darling for the best present any man could want.

My daughter and I just had the very best fun. It was a great way to spend the day in Auckland. We laughed and laughed and the adrenaline was pumping. We're going to do it again with our son now. Great birthday present.

Hi team. Thanks so much for a great morning. This was a 21st present for my boy Hamish and this is something he will never forget. I also treated myself to a bucket list experience to drive a Ferrari which I thoroughly enjoyed. Thanks also to David for his patience and guidance. Shane Hutchinson.

We are a corporate company and have recently attended this event with some key clients. Its hard to describe in words but if you are thinking about this as a great way to give your clients that ‘bucket list’ experience I suggest stop thinking about it and BOOK NOW! What an incredible experience, we had such a great time we have secured future bookings with other key clients. Great experience, great facility, and great team. Well done Drive Supercars Team.

The Experience

Oh the choices…what a life when you get to choose between driving a Ferrari or an Aston Martin!

Would you go for the the Aston Martin's style & sophistication, or the soft and aerodynamic lines of the convertible Ferrari F430 Spyder? Yes – the choice is yours!

Experience the power of one of these supercars driving for 8km's (3 laps) around Hampton Downs Raceway as one of our expert instructors provide guidance on the finer points of handling these beautiful machines. If this wasn’t already one of the best ways to spend a day, we wrap it up in style with a flying hot lap in the passenger seat of the awesome Mitsubishi EvoX. The ultimate end to a once in a life-time driving experience, every seat in this 4-door superstar is as good as the next, whether you’re in the front seat or the back we're sure you’ll be smiling from ear to ear when you get out.

See you at the track!
