What is a McLaren Driving Experience?
Since their reintroduction in 2010, McLarens have always been the premier British supercar manufacturer competing with the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini and Porsche. Following in the footsteps of their motorsport counterparts you too can experience the speed, handling and thrills that a McLaren supercar can offer.
We have a number of incredible McLaren supercars available for your driving pleasure including an MP4-12 GT3 racing car. Nothing compares to the roaring unrestrained V8 in the back of a full-on racing car. This incredible machine has 496bhp and is capable of speeds in excess of 180mph. You will have the opportunity to experience exactly what a racing driver experiences as you speed around the track feeling all the bumps and G-forces in this purpose built racing car.
Another of McLaren’s highlight cars we have to offer is the 720S. With 700bhp and a 0-60 time of just 2.6 seconds, this incredible machine has to be seen to be believed. With a top speed of 212mph, this is the quickest McLaren in the Trackdays fleet and we will give you the chance to take it around the track at a number of world famous locations across the country.
We also have the 720S’ baby brother available, the 570S. This amazing supercar is no less of a thrill ride, capable of 0-60mph in just 2.7 seconds thanks to its 3.8-litre V8 engine. Pumping out 570bhp, this baby McLaren has an incredible top speed of 210mph.
All of these fantastic McLaren experiences are available at a range of locations across the country including the world famous Brands Hatch, Knockhill, and Dunsfold Park. On all our driving experiences you will receive a full driver’s safety briefing from a fully qualified instructor. But don’t worry, they aren’t there to ruin your day, they are there to make sure you have the most amount of fun possible in a safe, controlled environment.
Above you will find our full list of experiences as well as all of our McLaren experiences. We also offer a range of McLaren driving experiences for kids, great gifts for birthdays and Christmas.

How do I book a McLaren Experience?
Booking your McLaren Experience has never been easier than right now at Trackdays. We have spent a large amount of time perfecting our booking process with the vision of making the experience from finding the right package on the website to getting behind the wheel as easy and as succinct as possible.
Our live date availability means that if you’re booking for yourself you can go directly onto the calendar and select a date and time that works for you once you have found your package. This is perfect if you know your schedule or alternatively if you’re looking for something slightly more last minute!
If you’re in the other camp, where you are buying for a friend, family member or loved one, then our open date gift vouchers will be a much more suitable option for you. These vouchers are valid for 10 months from purchase, so they’re a superb option if you’re not sure of the person's schedule or availability!
Once the voucher is purchased they can go and redeem it online and book themselves onto a date or alternatively give our customer service team a call and get it booked in through them, either way, a McLaren is an unforgettable gift and it’s never been easier to book than right now!
Essential Booking Information for McLaren Experiences
If you are buying an open gift voucher for a McLaren package, please check as some McLaren special offer vouchers and normal packages may have a shorter or longer validity to be used and activated within, which will be clearly stated on the gift voucher.
If you wish to book directly onto a date for a McLaren drive you need to be aware that you are making a booking request only and the date and time that you choose will be subject to availability upon us receiving the order. We usually confirm bookings within 48 hours but it’s important that you do not make any arrangements in conjunction with your booking request until you have a final confirmation email. The immediate receipt you get when making a booking request is not the confirmation.
Other important things to consider when purchasing McLaren Track Days is that the driver meets all of the requirements in terms of age, weight, height and driving licence. Each experience will have its own unique requirements so make sure you have read the important information thoroughly.
If an experience is for junior drivers only we will usually mention this in the name of the package but not in all cases. If a driver turns out to not meet the requirements on the day it's likely they will not get to drive and may have to settle for a passenger ride instead.
Featured Car: The McLaren 720s
So, which McLaren do we believe is the best option for you? Well, they all have excessive power, but the McLaren 720s is an example of some of the most elite engineering of the modern supercar era. Capable of reaching speeds of up to 211mph, the 720s is an undeniable force that provides an unprecedented level of thrills, excitement and energy. Comparable perhaps only to a rollercoaster, driving the 720s and experiencing its raw speed, the phenomenal handling and the spine tingling acceleration is a ride you’re never going to forget. So buckle up as you pedal to the metal with this incredible McLaren 720s driving experience.

Terms and Conditions
All experiences are subject to availability. The most recent information on dates when an event may be available can be checked by looking at the calendars on the website, or when you have activated and logged in with your voucher. Please note not all spaces are shown online so if you cannot see spaces for your event please call or email for dates. We will do our best to secure your preferred choice of event, venue and date, but to avoid disappointment book as early as possible, especially for peak times such as weekends and the summer months which book up very quickly. Do not purchase an experience for yourself or as a gift that has a choice of venues if you or the person it is for are only able to travel to one of the choices. Once you are booked, you are bound by the terms and conditions of the event host of which a copy can be made available upon request. In most circumstances, a cancellation cannot be made once a date has been booked.
When booking by phone or online you should not make arrangements in connection with an Event until you have received your final booking confirmation stating your date and time (this does not include the automatic purchase email you receive that confirms what you have just ordered). Your final confirmation will usually arrive within 48 hours of making the purchase. For voucher redemption see 'voucher conditions' below. Where specific elements of an Event such as vehicles or equipment are not available due to mechanical breakdown, we reserve the right to make reasonable substitutions on the day. If this is not possible we reserve the right to cancel the experience at short notice.
Voucher holders must make a prior booking and receive confirmation in order that an open voucher can be redeemed. We recommend that when you have chosen your experience you redeem your voucher at least 21 days in advance of taking your selected experience. We do not guarantee availability on all events, even if the date is showing, so if a chosen event is full or you cannot find a suitable date during the validity period of your voucher then the credit can be used towards an alternative event. Do not arrive at a venue expecting to be able to use your voucher without making a prior booking and receiving a booking confirmation. Trackdays.co.uk will not be held liable for any costs incurred in such circumstances.
Unless stated otherwise, vouchers are valid for one person only. Where necessary a top-up payment can be made to increase the value of a voucher to book a higher priced event. Note that during the out of season months the price of experience may change. If the price of the event is lower than the value of the voucher the remaining credit will be held for use until the vouchers expiry date. We recommend booking as early as possible as you must have undertaken your experience before the expiry date printed on the front of your Voucher. All vouchers will be valid for use up to the expiry date displayed, but after this date, vouchers will automatically expire and cannot be reinstated under any circumstances. Trackdays.co.uk staff are not responsible for reminding or informing customers when a voucher is due to expire. A voucher holder may book a date which is outside of the expiration date displayed on the voucher but must extend the expiry of their voucher for an administration fee. This must be processed before the original expiry date. Voucher credit cannot be used for extension fees or to pay for booking protection.
