Jaguar F Type R
The Jaguar F-Type R is an absolute thrill to drive with loads of front-end grip, this big cat turns in quickly and precisely, allowing you to confidently place it on the entry to a corner. The engineers at Jaguar have also helped drivers to cope with the immense power produced with an electronically controlled limited-slip diff and torque vectoring by braking, these clever bits of kit allow the driver to power out of the bends without the front and back ends swapping places.
These driver aids prove invaluable when it comes to the Jaguar F-Type R transferring it’s 542 bhp to the tarmac, which it does superbly through its excellent eight-speed auto gearbox. All that power means when the throttle is floored, the engine note turns from a deep rumble to a real growl and that is reflected with a surge of acceleration, with the tyres squirming the Jag powers off the line and reaches 60 mph in just four seconds. Keep the pedal to the metal and flick through the 8 speed box and this stunning supercar will top out at a very impressive 186 mph.

After a quick registration procedure, the Jaguar Driving Experience begins with one of The Racing School’s qualified ARDS instructors going through a full safety and information briefing. During this session drivers will also be given the opportunity to question the instructor about the Jaguar F-Type R and the imminent driving experience.
With the technical stuff out of the way, the drivers will be taken over to the pit lane where the instructor will drive some demonstration laps, here the drivers will be shown the general layout of the chosen circuit and also the racing lines, braking points and how to position the car correctly, these laps will go on to prove invaluable as they ensure that all drivers get the most out this stunning supercar and more importantly themselves, when it’s their turn to get behind the wheel of the beautiful Jaguar F-Type R.
With all the talk and demo laps over, the instructor will take to the F-Type’s passenger seat as the driver takes on a real race track for their six mile drive behind this masterpiece of British engineering. They’ll be purring about it for weeks to come!
