Loved it so much, made for a really enjoyable day. The cars were the vital part as you’d expect but the friendly, efficient and skilled team (all of them) added so much to make It special.

Great day well organised and very friendly helpful staff. Would highly recommend anyone to try. I paid for the Aston Martin, lotus & Evo hot lap with zero insurance and usb. We had the usb checked prior to leaving and was advised everything was all good. When we arrived home and tried to play - there is no footage from the Lotus which was driven first. Bit of a let down as this was supposed to be a recorded memory from the day.

I had so much fun on the day, driving the Aston Martin! What an adrenaline boost - the staff were fantastic, we had a whole pile of little kids there and everyone was very helpful. Such an amazing day, I can't wait to do it again!

Hi Guys, Thank you for one of the greatest experiences of my life! You were all so welcoming and friendly and I could see that you are a great team just by the way you interact with each other. Both the instructor in the Aston Martin and the driver of the Evo-X were super helpful and friendly. Instructions were given in a clear way with an explanation to make it easy to understand and remember. I learned something new on how to take a car into a corner. Again thank you for a very special experience and I will definitely see you soon. Cheers, Casper Smith

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!

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
