Formula Race Cars

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.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMER'S SAY
  • "Just a quick note to express my thanks for a great day at the Ultimate Drivers Experience yesterday at Knockhill. Every part of the day was really great. The staff were super and added to my enjoyment of the day. Rally session definitely my favourite - the instructors have the best job in the world! Hope to return to get the hang of that handbrake!"

  • "What a day! The instructors make you feel as though you've been the first one in the car, even though your 15th! Didn't do bad at all, 1.5 points behind the Driver of the Day! Single seater Formula Race Car was fantastic! Go Karting was really good but the Rally had me wooping with delight! I'll defo be back... soon."

  • "Hi, I was over on Monday for a day on track, karting and rally. Now that I have the power back in my limbs, I wanted to contact you to say that I had a fantastic day. The instructors were superb and the whole staff consummate professionals. The day was a gift and of course I was asked if it was 'worth the money'? My reply (you’re getting a summary here as I went on about it for hours) was that you made me experience the adrenaline, concentration and rewards usually only experienced when in one's youth. Thank you for an unforgettable day and please pass on my thanks to all involved. "

  • "What a great day out! This was a birthday gift with all the family present for the events; a few laps (under instruction) in a 306 bhp turbo Honda Civic followed by more laps in a 1.8 formula racing car... exhilarating and exciting - just the thing for lovers of speed. Then off to thrash about in various heats in the go-karts...competitive and thrilling. Lunch was included and the rest of the family joined me... menu was fine and food was given good feedback by all. The final event was the Rally Experience which involved having to learn how to deal with a completely different way of driving... pure adrenalin making magic! The last part of the day is announcing the ‘driver of the day’ and handing out certificates with instructor’s comments and scores provided. Not only was this an awesome experience for the participants but also for their families and friends. There are lots of options for viewing each event. Staff are friendly and very pleasant and helpful. Instructors are patient and encouraging and keep things going in a personable and light-humoured manner. Thanks and well done Knockhill Racing Circuit."
