The fast and the curious…now kids are driving Lamborghinis

The fast and the curious…now kids are driving Lamborghinis - News

We've seen a huge surge in bookings for kids driving supercars around race tracks.

In fact, recent figures reveal a massive 71 per cent increase in junior driving experience bookings in 2018.

Many of the supercars being driven by children as young as 11 can reach top speeds of around 200mph, including the Audi R8 and the mighty Lamborghini Gallardo.

Most of the supercars can also hit 0-60 mph in under five seconds, such as the Porsche 911 and Nissan GT-R.

Operations Manager Dan Jones said: "We’ve seen an explosion over the last couple of years of children driving supercars at circuits across the UK, many of whom have experienced what these cars can offer in computer games and now want to drive them for real.

"Indeed, such has been the surge in bookings that we’ve had to increase the number of junior driving experiences we offer.

"Of course, all junior driving experiences are with specially trained instructors, with safety given the utmost priority."

We've also seen a particular rise in bookings for electric vehicles for children to drive with its Junior BMW i8 experience, up 40 per cent in bookings last year.

Dan added: "On a practical note, these driving experiences are designed to teach kids driving skills in a safe environment. The younger they can learn how to drive, then the more experienced they will be when it comes to driving on the road for real."
