Just like the Ford v Ferrari movie, this heavyweight driving experience was inspired by Le Mans '66 and the rivalry between the dominant GT racing out of Ferrari and Ford, who hadn't won a major race in Europe since the 1921 French Grand Prix. The Ford GT40 ended the Italian manufacturer's five-year domination of Le Mans, which ran from 1960 to 1965, and became a legend of motorsport in the process.
Now you can get a taste of what both prestigious car creators were all about, with time behind the wheel in a recreation of the GT40, and Ferrari 348 TS. You'll get up to 3 miles of driving in each vehicle, sat beside an expert instructor who'll be giving you tips to help you find the racing line, brake where you need to brake, accelerate where you need to accelerate, and generally get the most out of your driving time.
Please allow up to 2-3 hours at the venue.
