Ingliston Driving Experiences
Ingliston Racing Circuit - or Edinburgh Circuit as it is also known - in Scotland is one of the UK’s premium driving experience venues. Created in 1965, this 1 mile long tarmac track has since hosted the likes of Jackie Stewart, Jim Clark, Allan McNish and David Coulthard. Racing at the circuit ceased in the mid 90s, and it’s now predominantly used for supercar driving experiences, giving driving enthusiasts the chance to drive performance vehicles like the Ferrari 458, Lamborghini Huracan and Nissan GT-R. Open gift vouchers are available to buy, perfect as a birthday or Christmas gift, or you can book directly onto an available date.
