The speed and thrill of US-style circuit racing or a world class road based track? If you want to drive Europe's fastest banked oval driving circuit (1.5 miles in 24.719 seconds by Tony Kanaan on 22nd September, 2001- that's 215 mph average) or simply want to experience the joys of race driving, the Rockingham Experience has it for you.
It's a surreal world you have entered, surrounded by towering grand stands.. Rockingham is enveloped by the amazing track. The banked track causes the outward lateral forces on the speeding car to be counteracted by an inward force caused by the friction in the plane perpendicular... wait, forget the physics... it lets you go REALLY fast.
So for speed unheard of, or even just a jolly good drive, there is none better than the Rockingham Driving Experience. Treat a loved one or yourself to a truly fantastic time.
Why a Rockingham Driving Experience?
Most men dream of driving a fast car at serious speeds around a national track, for a good number of people this is one of the key lifetime dreams. Rockingham speedway in Northampton is a great place and the only one in the UK with an oval speed circuit to go with its main circuit. Rockingham is well set up for driving experiences and there are plenty to choose from. If you dream of speeding round the track in an iconic car then a Rockingham driving experience can turn that dream into a reality.
If you dream of driving a car with some serious muscle then you might want to consider an experience with the car that won the Australian V8 championship, the 400 BHP V8 beast. This is the first time that anyone in the UK has had the opportunity to drive this vehicle and its home is now at Rockingham speedway. Get a Rockingham gift voucher and then you can choose a date and time that is good for you within the ten months following the purchase date. You must have held a full UK driving licence for a minimum period of a year in order to take part in the experience.
When you arrive at the speedway you will be welcomed and given a general safety briefing and told what will happen during the experience. The instructor will then take you round the laps in a saloon car to familiarise you with the track. Once the instructor believes you are ready you will then take the driving seat of the V8 for a twelve mile drive on the infield National Circuit. When the thrill of your drive is over you will have a debrief and be presented with a certificate to remind you of your wonderful Rockingham driving experience.
