Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Better than any driving game, the Junior Aston Martin driving experience offers jaw dropping excitement. Powered by a 4.2 litre V8 the Aston Martin V8 Vantage is much more than the grand tourer it professes to be, it’s poise and handling on the track are a match for many of the more “shouty” supercars in The Racing School fleet. Don’t be fooled though, the Aston’s exhaust note provides a fantastic soundtrack for an incredible drive and as the revs increase it will have the hairs standing up on the back of your neck.
Producing a more than healthy 380 bhp, the V8 Vantage has some pretty impressive performance figures too, from a standing start 60 mph is achieved in just 4.7 seconds and for those that are brave enough the Aston tops out at 180 mph. So if your child dreams of being James Bond, why not make those dreams come a little closer with a Junior Aston Martin driving experience.

After a quick registration process on arrival at the track the Junior Aston Martin Driving Experience begins with a detailed safety and technical briefing by a qualified ARDS instructor, here the junior driver will learn about all the aspects of driving on the circuit. Once the briefing has been completed they head over to the track where the instructor drives them around to familiarise them with the cicuit, showing them how to position the car correctly and the best racing lines to take. With the instructor’s advice still ringing in their ears it’s then time to slip into the luxurious cockpit of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage for a full six miles driving.
