We really enjoyed our day and took advantage of the GoKarts track being right next door. It was certainly a day well worth while with the team at Hampton Downs providing excellent service both on the track and off the track! The instructor was an excellent co-pilot and guided you all the way through the course ….which made the experience even better! Thanks Team....worth a repeat!

Excellent experience, they really do make you feel welcome right from the moment you park your car at the entrance. I was surprised at the freedom we had to roam around and check out the supercars. The pilot lap was helpful, and the drive itself was the highlight, if you're willing to listen to the instructor you'd be surprised how much you can get out of the experience. I would also recommend the Evo X Hotlap, will definitely be back!

We found the staff very friendly and accommodating. One suggestion would be to have a warm up lap in the vehicle being driven then 3 laps. Overall the experience was very good.

Awesome day for my son. Only thing he was a bit disappointed about was the hot lap as a back seat passenger. I understand that you mention it in the marketing but it isn't the same experience between front and back seat the visuals are missing in the back. I think either you pay more and book front seat, pay more and run more laps as singles, or continue to have people angling to get in front seat and those who are not pushy having a lesser experience - and they do, in spite of the on site teams programmed response which was ' it's the same experience" CHeers

The Experience

Oh the choices…what a life when you get to choose between driving a Lamborghini, Ferrari or an Aston Martin!

Would you go for the Lamborghini's raw V12 power, the Aston Martin's style & sophistication, or the soft and aerodynamic lines of the convertible Ferrari F430 Spyder? Yes – the choice is yours!

Experience the power of one of these supercars driving for 8km around Hampton Downs Raceway as one of our expert instructors provide guidance on the finer points of handling these beautiful machines. If this wasn’t already one of the best ways to spend a day, we wrap it up in style with a flying hot lap in the passenger seat of the awesome Mitsubishi EvoX. The ultimate end to a once in a life-time driving experience, every seat in this 4-door superstar is as good as the next, whether you’re in the front seat or the back we're sure you’ll be smiling from ear to ear when you get out.

See you at the track!
