  • Driver instruction by real race car drivers

  • Experience Sydney Motorsport Park

Driving a single seater Formula Ford racing car is unlike anything else and you can experience it for yourself at the Sydney Motorsports Park. The cars are real race cars and you’ll be strapped into a Formula Ford for five laps. Connected by a six-point racing harness with the quick release steering wheel in front of you, you’ll have the gear stick on your right connected to a 4-speed close ratio, a purpose-built gearbox.

Seated only inches from the tarmac, drivers will feel every bump and vibration as the responsive car reacts quickly to every tiny adjustment made as they handle the Corporate Hill section of the Sydney Motorsports Park track. The driving experience will consist of two orientation laps in a road car and then five laps on your own.
