Ferrari 360 Modena
When you think of supercars one name springs to mind instantly… Ferrari. And there a few more iconic Ferraris than the fantastic Ferrari 360 Modena. Slip into the luxurious hand stitched leather seats, blip the throttle and four hundred prancing horses scream their approval just over your left shoulder. The 360 Modena provides the perfect soundtrack for the junior Ferrari experience, but it’s not just about being loud, this Ferrari has the performance to back it up. Launching from a standing start it will reach sixty miles per hour in 4.5 seconds and if you hold your nerve and flick through the gearbox the needle on the speedo will eventually settle at an impressive 183 miles per hour.

The Junior Ferrari Experience begins with a full safety and information briefing carried out by a qualified ARDS instructor. This session is an opportunity for junior drivers to quiz the instructor and ask as many questions as they have about the Ferrari and the experience ahead.
Following the briefing session it’s time to take to the track for some familiarisation laps with the instructor at the wheel, junior drivers will be shown how to make the most out of driving the Ferrari 360 on a race circuit. They’ll be given advice on tackling corners, attacking straights and how to handle sweeping bends, ensuring they get the most out of the awesome Ferrari while remaining safe behind the wheel at all times.
Talking and demonstrations over, it’s then time for the junior driver to slip into the hand-stitched leather seats, turn on the ignition and hear the roar of the engine before moving out onto the track. Over the next six miles it will become clear why the name Ferrari is legendary in the motor sport industry.
