Hi team, I wasn’t feeling at all well on the day and the team were super accommodative about the option of my husband jumping in at the last minute if need be. I ended up being able to drive the Ferrari and Aston but my husband got the awesome chance to hoon around with a proper driver in the Evo. The Ferrari and the Aston were lovely vehicles to have had a few laps in and Carl did a great job in trying to inspire me to go faster - with not being well and struggling to see very well for some reason = no chance haha. Biggest ups to the day was my time with JT in the Aston. What a passion for racing and a passion to motivate and inspire the driver. He used metaphors and language that really showcased the examples he was trying to teach. I honestly felt my driving got better (and faster) the more time I spent with him. I remember initially thinking that (as I drove the Ferrari first) that I was starting with the cherry and finishing with the cake - but not the case! Having the privilege to sit with JT was the highlight by a long shot. I feel there needs to be a round 2 when I can see and feel better to really give the cars the pace and skill that they’re used to. Great day, great cars, great team - a job more than ‘well done’! Fyi - The Aston’s brakes need some love (not sure the high pitched squeal is a good sign)!

The Experience

Get the best of both worlds with this Double Flexi-Gift Pass as you 2 of the hottest Supercars around Hampton Downs, Auckland. Truly the only thing better than taking the wheel of one of the world's greatest supercars is getting to drive two.

You'll drive both the Aston Martin V8 Vantage & Ferrari F430, each for 8km. Take it all in as you drive around Hamptons Downs Raceway while one of our expert instructors guide you on the finer points of handling these supercars. 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. The ultimate end to a once in a life-time driving experience.
