Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Tearing round the Three Sisters Race Circuit in an Aston Martin V8 Vantage is an experience to behold. At its heart is a 4.2 litre V8 engine that powers you from nought to sixty miles per hour in a meagre 4.7 seconds and as the exhaust note rises you’ll be tempted to see if you can get anywhere near the top speed of 180 mph.
The compact nature of the track means you will need all your driving skills and you will soon come to realise why Three Sisters is proud to be referred to as ‘The Jewel of the North’ within the motorsport fraternity.

When drivers arrive at the track there is a quick registration process, then the Aston Martin driving experience at Three Sisters begins with a full safety and technical briefing carried out by a qualified ARDS instructor. During this session track etiquette will be explained and it also gives an opportunity for the drivers to question the instructor about the Aston Martin V8 Vantage and the forthcoming driving experience.
Following the briefing it’s over to the Three Sisters pit lane where the instructor will take the wheel and drive some familiarisation laps, here the drivers will be shown how to make the most out of driving the Aston Martin on the Three Sisters circuit. They will be given advice on braking points, the racing lines and the general layout of the track, this ensures that all drivers get the most out of the stunning Aston Martin for their six mile drive.
With those laps behind them, the instructor will take to the Aston’s passenger seat to offer encouragement and advice as the driver pits themselves and the luxurious Aston Martin against the “Jewel of the North” that is the Three Sisters race track.
