Drive 007’s car of choice – the iconic Aston Martin – and experience the power and finesse of this awesome car at Prestwold Driving Centre in Leicestershire. Depending what’s available on the day, drive either the V8 Vantage – a beautifully crafted modern classic with superb performance, or the DB9 – an uncompromising 6 litre 186mph speed machine. After a detailed briefing from a professional instructor and two demo laps, speed around Prestwold Hall’s circuit for four exhilarating laps, on a track specially designed to put top-class cars through their paces. The Aston Martin driving experience will be assessed before the presentation of a commemorative certificate.
Selected Saturdays and occasional weekdays. We recommend allowing several weeks booking notice for this popular experience.
Driving may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. high winds, ice or heavy rain) which would make driving at speed dangerous. The venue makes contact if the experience is cancelled for any reason.
Expect to be at the circuit for between half an hour to an hour, including a briefing and driving laps (driving time is up to ten minutes in total). Please arrive 45 minutes in advance of the booked time.
