This was a really cool experience, I had a blast. I'll be back to do it again for sure! I was however disappointed to find no sound on one of the driving videos I paid for. I rang up and was told I would be contacted but never heard anything. Maybe you still will?? 027 4929 324

Fabulous day for the husband and spectating family alike The children were over the moon to be able to share in the evo lap with him, mums driving now seems tame in comparison! Only one complaint that it wasn’t long enough! So that’s a good sign! Lovely staff, very welcoming and great to chat to, felt very looked after Many thanks The Keane’s

My Husband had a fantastic day. His dream came true driving the Aston Martin The whole day from start to finish was extremely professional. Can't thank the staff enough for a wonderful experience. Thank you to all. The only comment we would like to suggest is you only get 3 laps with package. For value for money it would of been nice to have at least 5 laps included in the package. Having to pay extra on top to add the 2 extra laps seemed a bit much! As you just get the feel of the car and it's over. Not quite enough time to enjoy it. However we would highly recommend to all our friends for a great experience.

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.


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