DRIVE A WILLIAMS FORMULA 1 CAR (FW33)FRANCE

Drive the Williams FW33 with a 2.4 ltr Cosworth V8 engine producing 700 bhp.

You can now choose between 4 different courses, Performance, High Performance, Ultimate or Extreme

All courses include morning sessions driving a Formula Renault 2.0. For the Performance and High Performance Courses you will be driving either the V8 or the V10. Both cars produce the same amount of power. The actual car you drive will depend on availability and the decision of the instructors on the day. You can request a car but we cannot guarantee that you will be driving your preferred choice. Extra F1 laps can be booked in advance.

To drive the FW33 - The Ultimate F1 Driving Experience Course - you do need to have already driven an F1 on one of our courses within the last 12 months. However, if you have not done this you can still drive the car. The Extreme F1 Driving Experience Course means you will be driving the Benetton or Prost first before you get behind the wheel of the 700 bhp Williams FW33.

On both courses you will receive a one-to-one briefing on the techniques of left foot braking and using the hand clutch. Remember this is a 2-pedal car - just brake and throttle and to maximise the cars potential it is essential to know and learn these new skills.

The car you will be piloting is just the same as when it raced with one exception and that is the KERS system has been disabled. It is still the original Cosworth power unit (revving to 16k), Williams gearbox and 6-pot carbon brakes.

THE BASE FOR YOUR FORMULA 1 EXPERIENCE

The Magny Cours Formula 1 Grand Prix Circuit has it's own newly renovated 32 en suite roomed hotel with modern decor and air conditioning, beside the circuit.

THE CIRCUIT - MAGNY COURS - Circuit Length: 4250m

Magny Cours is the long established home of the French Grand Prix and offers excellent facilities comparable to any other circuit on the calendar.

The mirror smooth surface to the track is perfect for Formula 1 with the circuit configuration offering a fabulous blend of fast straights, long sweeping corners such as Estoril and tight hair-pins such as the challenging Adelaide where you approach at nearly 190 mph before getting hard on the brakes.

The circuit length of 4.25 km makes it very much a 'real' Grand Prix circuit without making it difficult to learn.
