Getaway Summary

2 nights / 3 days
Location: Taupo, Southern Waikato
Accommodation in 4* hotel
10 laps on the race track with either a V8 or a single-seater race car*

(*10 laps based on Taupo Track 3. If they have to use Track 1 or 2, which are double as long, you’ll get fewer laps but the same driving time)

Have you ever dreamt of driving a V8 muscle car or maybe even a single-seater race car?

You can make these dreams come true in Taupo! Feel like a professional driver as you race lap after lap on a designated race track! 

After watching the introductory DVD, you (and a passenger of choice) first drive a few laps with a driving instructor to familiarize yourself with the powerful cars. 

After this, it’s all up to you! Choose between a V8 muscle car or a single-seater race car like you know from Formula 1. Once you’re strapped and secured in your seat, It! Is! Go!

Gentlemen, start your engines!

Feel your heart race as you release the clutch and take off at an exhilarating speed, driving the 10 fastest laps of your life! And with some luck, you might even make it onto the leaderboard.

No experience in racing is needed for the V8 and race car driving experience but if you know your way around a clutch it’s definitely an advantage.

Your accommodation for the weekend will be in one of the 4* properties of Taupo Lakeside Accommodation.
