Aston Martin Vantage Drive & Evo-X Hot Lap, Hampton Downs

Since James Bond drove a 1986 Aston Martin Vantage, this car has been synonymous with sophistication, speed and style on a whole new level! Now it's your chance to take the wheel for 8 unforgettable km's around Hampton Downs Raceway in Auckland.

The look and feel of the Aston Martin Vantage simply has to be experienced to be believed. It's flowing lines and stark black and white paint job provide the perfect combination of beauty and strength in one.

Take it all in as you drive for 8km around Hamptons Downs Raceway while one of our expert instructors guide you on the finer points of handling this supercar. The noise is unparalleled and the experience will never be forgotten.

Then just when you thought it couldn't get any better, you’ll get the chance to jump into the passenger seat of the awesome Mitsubishi EvoX for a fast lap around the track. A great way to finish off the experience, every seat is as good as the next in this very capable car so whether you’re in the front or the back seat you’ll be smiling when you get out.

Had a great drive thanks. Felt well looked after and the instructor was really helpful. Would go again tomorrow! Just one point about the "Hot Lap" - disappointing that it is not a whole lap - you just get the feeling of winding up and the car comes in before the straight, so you don't really experience what it's like. Other than that a great day out. Thanks to you all!

Thanks heaps for the experience. I had an awesome time. Most noticeably, the friendliness and enthusiasm of the staff really made it for me. Not being allowed to push the cars to their limit is understandable, and explained well by the experienced staff.

Had a great afternoon. Only wish I could have had more track time for the same deal. Recommend paying for the 2 extra laps after the first drive as you just get your eye in and its time to pit. Extra 2 laps well worth it. Love the Aston Martin

Hey Guys, I just wanted to say a big thank you to the team for yesterday. I got to drive the Aston Martin. All I can say is WOW! what a car.(Thanks Steve.) I would highly recommend this experience. The hot lap was a white knuckle ride, at the same time it felt really safe with Paul behind the wheel. Nice work. Team were very professional. They even went the extra mile and kept an eye on my kids while I was on the track. Thanks again. I WILL BE BACK!! My eldest want to have a hot lap next time.......... Cheers

What a fantastic day! The sun was shining and it was the perfect day for a Supercar experience! All of the team were extremely helpful, from the registration team to the professional drives with you in the supercar, everyone obviously loved working there as it showed! The only thing I would mention is that, maybe added in another 1 or 2 laps in the supercar to give you 5 rounds instead of 3 but that's the only thing I can suggest. I'm showing everyone at work my photos and so many others are interested! many thanks Leanne and Darren Meikle-Bevan
