Long regarded as one of the most iconic sports cars on the market, the 911 GT3 is the pinnacle of German engineering and design.

Once complete, you'll be sent down to the pit to be fitted for your helmet and to prepare yourself for the thrill of a lifetime!

    Finally, you will take the driver's seat and have the opportunity to unleash on the course for 3, heart-pumping laps. Your instructor will be in the passenger seat the entire time, giving you real-time feedback and pointers on how to get the most out of the course!

    It was a fantastic experience! The instructor was awesome, and the car was truly insane. I can't wait to do this again!
    Great time. Advise taking the ride along in the lead car first to get used to the track. You will go faster if you do.
