The VIP Fastpass

Sandown Raceway - Melbourne, VIC

  • 6 Drive laps
  • 3 Ride laps

Be one of the first to get on the track with this queue jump pass. Spend less time waiting for your turn and get in the car quicker. Nothing shakes the body like the roar of a V8 race car, and nothing stirs the soul more than a session of hot laps in a track-prepared V8 six-speed Holden or Ford around Melbourne’s V8 race track, Sandown Raceway.

The V8 drive day begins with a briefing conducted by experienced race drivers. During pre-drive tuition, your driver will explain techniques on cornering, apexes and exiting, efficient braking and acceleration, steering, gear changes and general car control. Safety and track awareness will also be discussed. There’s plenty of time to ask questions so you’ll feel completely comfortable before putting V8 race car theory into practice.

Then it’s time to let loose your inner revhead during a session of real life V8 driving action. Each driver does 6 full-pelt laps behind the wheel of their V8 Holden or Ford. Then, just when you reckon you can drive a V8 professional, your experienced race driver will take control again for three more seriously quick V8 hot laps that you’re not likely to forget for a very long time.
