Driving on a race circuit is very different to normal road driving. To make the most of the cars you’ll be driving on track you need to learn the ‘racing line’ and braking points.
Our ARDS qualified race instructors will demonstrate the racing lines and braking points plus other hints and tips to help you get the most from your driving experience.
Out on track it may seem quite unfamiliar with no road marks or signs and no cars coming in the other direction, but after some laps watching and listening to your race instructor you’ll have built up a good idea of the circuit layout and be confident when you first get behind the wheel and head out on track.

Want to feel like Lewis Hamilton and experience real downforce? now you can on the best race circuit in Wales.
You don't so much sit in a Racing car as get physically attached to the car. Tightly strapped into the cockpit, you become part of it. Every bump, camber and vibration is transmitted through the driver – you know and feel exactly what is happening. Racing tyres and wings give razor sharp responses – try to relax behind the wheel, even the slightest driver input is a noticeable direction change.
Before the racing car there's time to get to grips with the race circuit in a fantastic performance car - the MGZR Hot Hatch. It gives great driver feedback – accurate and responsive steering and great handling balance.
