Staycation boom sees rise in adult and junior supercar experiences

The staycation phenomenon is driving up demand for supercar experiences as Brits look for alternative ways to enjoy themselves whilst holidaying from home.

Yet surprisingly the booming summer supercar action isn’t just for adults because children as young as 11 are increasingly getting behind the wheel of cars capable of more than 200mph.

We've seen a sizeable seasonal increase of 15 per cent in bookings over the summer period and this jumps to a 30 per cent increase specifically for junior bookings over the same period.

Meanwhile, other reports show that summer staycations are on the rise, with some indicating that they are up by a third compared to 2018.

Imran Malek, operations manager said: “Taking a staycation is all the rage and its popularity would appear to have the knock-on effect of a huge increase in bookings for supercar driving experiences this summer, with children also muscling in on the track action.

“Indeed, rather than holidaying abroad, many Brits, whatever age, are looking to enjoy themselves closer to home and blasting around a race track in a high-performance vehicle is certainly one way to do that!”

And as youngsters are increasingly putting pedal to the metal in some of the fastest cars on the planet this summer, further investigation by www.trackdays.co.uk also reveals the actual supercars that are the most popular with children to drive.

Its top five summer scorchers with kids, based on junior driving experience bookings, are the Lamborghini Gallardo, Nissan GT-R, Ferrari 430, Aston Martin V8 Vantage and Audi R8.

Imran added: “The popularity of staycations, in part fuelled by last summers’ heatwave, are apparently boosting bookings for our supercars and the summer season dwarfs’ other periods. It’s also great to see that no-fear youngsters are also enjoying the exhilarating track action.”
