Buy now price: £225.00
Availability: Selected weekday and weekend dates throughout the year. Weekends are always busy; book at least six to eight weeks in advance. Weather: Motor racing may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. snow, ice or severe rain) which would make driving at speed dangerous. Please call the venue if in any doubt. Duration: Your experience will last for up to two and a half hours including a 15 minute briefing, tuition, driving time and a debrief. It is vital that you arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled start time to register. Numbers On Day: There will a maximum of 28 people taking part, broken into smaller groups. Spectators: Spectators are welcome, get them to bring a camera. Please note that pets are not permitted at the circuit. Dress Code: Wear trousers, a long-sleeved shirt and slim, flat-soled shoes, as the pedals in these cars are close together. Don't wear nylon. A helmet will be provided or you can bring your own if you have one. Guidelines: From Edinburgh: take the M90 across the Forth Road Bridge towards Dunfermline then join the B914 at junction 4 (signed Kelty) then go onto the A823 - Knockhill is on the right. Alternatively from Glasgow: follow the A977 to Powmill and take the turn off to join the A823 as noted above. Restrictions: Minimum height is 5'1'', maximum is 6'4''. You must hold a full manual driving licence - bring it with you on the day. Other Info: These Honda Blackbird motorcycle-engined single-seaters are F1 styled racing cars with open cockpits, giving you a taste of real motor racing. Professional photographs can be purchased on the day.
You're strapped into the open cockpit with your legs stretched out into the nose of the car, the steering wheel in front of you and the gearstick between your legs. You're only a couple of inches off the ground and you'll know it; you can feel every bump and quake, fighting not to oversteer, as your super-responsive car reacts to every tiny adjustment you make. Your experience starts with a briefing before you warm up with three laps in a Seat Ibiza Cupra. This is followed by two demonstration laps in a Seat Leon before strapping into a Honda Blackbird single-seater, driving solo for seven laps. There's a trophy for the day's best driver and everyone receives a certificate.
