Thanks for a great experience guys - from the intro, slickness of registering, through to the politeness, positive and friendly nature and customer focus of the guys in the car / track - really good, thank you heaps. Your intro video could do with a volume increase / redo perhaps :-) The experience made me eager to come back another day.. to try the Lotus and Ferrari options

I was so thrilled by driving the Aston Martin Vantage, that I now want to own one! I really appreciated the instructor feedback, he was fantastic, he talked me thru every corner and straightaway. I'm glad he was in the car with me. The hot lap in the Evo X was a total shock. I had no idea that people could drive that fast, howl around corners and brake, all whilst I felt he was in total control. He made it look so easy. After the hot lap, I had to sit for awhile before driving home to calm down. Thrilling!

I had a fantastic time thank you. This was a present purchased for me for my 60th birthday and I thought it was fantastic. The only down side for me was the fact I couldn't go on a day over any weekend, and because of this I couldn't have my family there to enjoy the day with me. It was still fantastic tho. Have a fantastic Xmas new year season. Regards Julie

I had an awesome time driving the Aston Martin and Lotus. Amazing cars. The instructors in each car were superb as they gave advice on the lines to take, changing gears etc. which was very helpful. An amazing experience to drive these cars on a race track. I feel the 3 laps was not enough and goes quickly. By the end of the 2nd lap and into the third you only then start to get a proper feel of the car and the track. I chose to do two extra laps for each which was great. Will definitely be back. Regards, Sean

Great day complete with great staff! Smooth and friendly induction and briefing. Cars driven all drove well. Time flew but one does need at least four laps to make it worthwhile. Cheers TomC

The Experience

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.

Please meet us at Hampton Downs Motorsport Park, Hampton Downs Road, Meremere
