DRIVE A REAL V8 EX FORMULA 1 CAR IN 2015

As Abu Dhabi is a new event, we are still waiting for confirmation of the specification for Formula 1 cars. As ever, you can expect the very best F1s available, not the tired old chassis with detuned engines being campaigned in the UK. Formula 1 Cars used these very special Driving Courses are expected to include the Benetton B198 (ex Fisichella and Wurz) and the Prost AP04 (ex Alesi and Frentzen). V8 cars which produce 650 bhp

All are in F1 race trim so that means paddle-shift semi automatic gearbox and carbon brakes. All the cars are right on the money.

To top it all there is of course the glorious climate offered in sunny Abu Dhabi as well as the luxury hotel and renowned hospitality we have arranged for you by Wildside.

Yas Marina is one the most expensive circuits to hire ($24,000 alone and yes we have exclusive use of it). Add in the fact that you are in the hands of the World's original F1 driving school, fantastically well prepared cars and a high staff to pupil ratio and it makes you wonder how they do it. If you know your onions you'll recognise it as the bargain of the century. Get in quick before somebody sees sense.
