Nowhere else will you get the chance to drive on the track at historic Silverstone, and now you can learn part of the famous Grand Prix circuit from behind the wheel of the newest addition to the Silverstone fleet; the brand new Aston Martin Vantage. The V8 Vantage is a stunning combination of British glamour and speed, and there's nowhere better to get the ultimate performance out of it than on the track of Silverstone. The brand new cockpit features a lower driving position along with an eight-speed paddle shift gearbox, and with speeds of up to 195mph, you can feel more immersed in the action than ever before. From the moment you see the striking Silverstone Wing you'll know you're in for a real racing experience, and as you fly your Vantage past the pits and down the International straight you'll be able to hear the roar of its high powered 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. You'll be taught by an ARDS-licensed instructor, just like the professionals, who'll teach you how to take Silverstone's famous corners such as Stowe, Vale and Abbey. As if that wasn't enough, if your experience falls on a weekend when a race is taking place you'll receive two tickets to watch the race in-between sessions!
