Brits Looking For A New Hobby Take To The Track - News

  • Record increase in the number of Brits who are getting on track and following their dreams of becoming a racing driver
  • 75% increase in the number of people emulating their F1 heroes in the single-seater F1000 race car
  • Around two thirds of people in the UK are actively looking to take up a new hobby, wannabe racers can now follow in the footsteps of racing icons with one-to-one tuition from a trained instructor

Racing fans looking to follow in the footsteps of their idols and become professional racing drivers or would like to take on a new hobby can now do just that, following the launch of a new experience package in a rare Formula F1000.

Following a 75% increase in the number of Brits taking to the track last year in the Formula F1000 racing car, this sparked the development of a brand new driving opportunity which enables drivers to follow their dreams and receive one-to-one tuition from a trained instructor on a private airfield.

The Formula F1000 driving experiences are perfect for anyone who wants to experience the thrill of being a real Formula One driver and going from 0 to 100mph in just 4.75 seconds.

Dan Jones, operations manager at TrackDays.co.uk, said: "Nearly two-thirds of people in Britain are currently looking for ways to cure their winter blues with a new hobby, and what better way than to follow your childhood dream of becoming a racing driver?"

"Last year we saw bookings for our popular 12 Lap F1000 experience increase by 75%, so we have decided to offer a new product this year. The new 20 Lap experience focuses on helping participants get to grips with the car through a lot more one-to-one tuition. Perfect for those wanting to get into the sport."

To find out more about the experience, as well as exploring other alternative single-seater experiences, visit TrackDays.co.uk's dedicated Single Seater Driving Experiences page to browse and book from forthcoming events dates on their Single Seater Calendar or through purchase of their open Gift Vouchers.
