The excitement begins as you climb into the cockpit of the Formula Race Car and take a seat just inches above the tarmac. With a light body, the power to weight ratio is awesome. A long wheel base offers stable cornering in all weathers; the 1.8 litre, 16 valve mid-engine allows for speeds in excess of 100 mph.

The Type R responds instantly to the driver, no hesitation. Underneath the sculpted bonnet lies a four cylinder VTEC TURBO engine. It’s no surprise to discover this gives the Type R the ability to sprint from 0-62 mph in 5.8 seconds and achieve 169 mph top speed.

The Track

Knockhill Racing Circuit is Scotland’s only approved MSA and FIA Internationally graded Circuit and is famous for hosting major televised motorsport events such as the British Touring Car and the British Superbike Championships.

A demanding road-circuit style track, 1.27 miles (2km) long, and 30 feet (10 m) wide, with a dramatic series of twists, turns, drops and climbs, varying by around 200 feet (60m) from highest to lowest point. Drive on the same International Circuit as driven by Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss, David Coulthard, Lewis Hamilton, Paul Di Resta and our very own BTCC Stars Gordon Shedden and Rory Butcher.
