Thruxton Race School

Price: £155 (half day) Drive time: 40 minutes

It’s the fastest race track in the UK, and boy did we have a blast! The atmosphere was relaxed but professional, while the circuit is great fun. Mazda’s RX-8 was used for the six instruction laps, three with you driving, and it’s important to watch, listen and learn, as Thruxton’s racing lines are tricky to pick up. There are many passing opportunities and you will hit the rev limiter on the straights when you’re driving the Formula Vauxhall Lotus single-seater. The day finishes with the instructor taking you on a high-speed lap in the RX-8. Our racing Best Buy.
