Smeatharpe, also known as RAF Upottery is a former World War II airfield in Exeter, Devon which famously appeared in an episode of the TV series 'Band of Brothers'. Also on-site is the banger racing venue 'Smeatharpe Stadium'.
2017 will be the first time that the runway has been used for supercar driving experiences and brings these awesome events closer to the people of Devon and Cornwall who previously would have had to travel much further.
The track at Smeatharpe is layed out using cones on a large section of the runway creating a track that is approx 1 mile in length. The un-intimidating layout has plenty of runoff and marked braking zones making it a safe and well controlled environment for guests to enjoy driving Supercars.
The range of cars available to drive includes Ferrari 360/ 430, Lamborghini Gallardo, Aston Martin, Audi R8, Nissan GTR, Porsche 911/997 as standard, and from the platinum range you can choose a BMW i8, Ferrari 458, Lamborghini Performante, McLaren MP4-12C and an Audi R8 V10.
You can book a gift voucher for someone to do a driving experience (valid for 10 months) or you can book directly onto a date. For 2017 there will be 10 dates running on Friday and Saturday dates.
