Drive an F1 car and unleash your inner Schumacher!

Soaring around an iconic F1 circuit, topping speeds of 190mph, winning the Grand Prix, then collecting your magnum of champagne has traditionally been reserved for superstar F1 drivers such as Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg – for the rest of us, it’s little more than a beautiful, beautiful dream…

Until now! Tick a huge event off your bucket list and become an actual F1 driver for the day, without spending thousands of hours doing… well, any actual work towards it. Pinch yourself – this isn’t a dream.

Your own personal French Grand Prix

This one-off F1 experience gives you full licence to drive an actual V8 or V10 F1 car around the famous Magny Cours track – home to the French Grand Prix until 2008.

After one-to-one instruction from professional race drivers, choose your legendary four-wheeled companion from a selection of Benetton, Jaguar, Williams and Prost F1 cars. Want to test your skills in a 2.4 litre V8 2011 Williams FW33? That’s there too!

Then comes the real fun as you unleash them on the 4.4km track, where tight hairpin bends, blistering straights, and white-knuckle speeds await. No rev limits, no speed limits. The scariest thing? You’re in complete control!

And yes – your post-race champagne is included. It wouldn’t be a real French Grand Prix without champagne…

In Short:

  • Drive a real F1 car with no limits
  • Test your skill on the iconic Magny Cours track
  • Enjoy a three-course lunch and celebratory champagne
  • Full technical briefing and all safety equipment included.
