Drive a race car

The perfect gift for the motor head in your life – The Ultimate Driving Experience (Drive a V8 and Formula Challenge Single Seater race car)

Race a Formula Challenge V8 Race Car on Taupo’s newly refurbished state of the art track, then climb into the cockpit of a single seater race car for some Formula style fun. Not one, but two driving adventures, combine for the ultimate day behind the wheel on the country’s new premier race track.

This is a rare opportunity to actually race a V8 Car on a professional track. See the world through the eyes of a championship driver in a full-on session that includes pre-drive tuition, and 1 session behind the wheel of a Formula Challenge V8 race car.

Then it’s time for some Formula style kicks as you discover the high speed thrills of single seater racing. Fly at speeds of up 160kph as you cover 1 session on the track. Discover the excellent power to weight ratio of single seater racing as you learn the secrets and theory of championship driving.

This is a speed demon’s dream come true – the ultimate driving adventure…

Formula Challenge is now operating from the international A1 circuit at Taupo, and is a motorsport approved school for both new and experienced drivers using single seaters race cars and now also V8 race cars. With the improved Taupo Motor Racing circuit and business park now operational, Formula Challenge is now on call and available whenever the circuit is not exclusively booked.
