About the experience

Take a trip down memory lane with this one of a kind classic car driving experience. Drive Dad's, Mum's, your first car, or even the car you always wanted, with 17 British classics, manufactured between 1935 and 1995, to choose from. With an expert instructor accompanying you throughout, you'll take your chosen classic for a 20 minute drive on a closed road course. You'll likely be in control of a vehicle with less power than your current car, with brakes and steering that'll require more effort than you've been used to, but that's all part of the experience. Listen to the sounds, appreciate the quirks and get to grips with what driving was like in times gone by. British classics to choose from include the Austin Maestro, Morris Marina, Mini 25, Austin Metro, Morris Minor Convertible, Ford Fiesta, Ford Escort, Ford Sierra, Ford Capri, Vauxhall Viva, Vauxhall Astra, Vauxhall Astra Mk2, Vauxhall Cavalier, Reliant Robin, Mini 850, Hillman Imp and the Chrysler Avenger.
