Find your hidden 'Race Car Driver'

Head out to the Taupo Motorsport Park and learn to drive a single seater Formula One race car replica - the closest you will ever get to Formula 1. Or if you're more a Ford or Holden fan, get behind the wheel of a V8 racecar, or let the experienced drivers thrill you around the track! If Sports Cars are more your thing, then take the wheel of one of the world's most popular sports cars, the MX5.  Learn the challenges of an all out day of excitement 'at the track'. Finish the day off with a cold drink and BBQ dinner in 'Pit Lane'.
