There are some cruel expressions in motorsport about people who don’t end an event the way they planned – they might have ‘run out of talent’ or ‘confused ambition with ability’. So, what about you?
If you’ve always thought you might be able to mix it with the best of our professional drivers, or simply want to have a fun day out, why not book yourself a V8 Supercar experience.
Norwell Motorplex on the Gold Coast, is home to the V8 Supercars Official Driving Experience, the only V8 Supercar experience officially sanctioned by V8 Supercars’ management team.
Owned by Bathurst winner, Paul Morris, the Gold Coast V8 facility offers a range of packages that allow would-be Supercar superstars to test their abilities and live their dreams.
Booking in for a Gold Coast V8 experience, you have the option of simply riding for several laps with one of the race-winning instructors and enjoying your V8 Supercar experience that way – or you can sign up for a whole lot more.
Book a driving lesson in one of the Gold Coast V8 cars, and you will find yourself behind the wheel of a race-prepared V8 Holden Commodore or Ford Falcon. It’s your choice of vehicle for your laps of the 2.1km Norwell Motorplex track – and you can even book a session with a group of your friends and actually learn to race each other.
The experts who will help you through your V8 Supercar experience are all trained race drivers as well as qualified driver trainers. Even if it’s your first time at a racetrack, or driving at speed, there is no need to be nervous.
They will give you a full briefing and instruction before you head out on track, and after that you will know about the techniques of racing. If you’ve booked for the full V8 Supercar driving experience, you will then get to practise cornering correctly, as well as learning when to brake, turn and accelerate.
If you love cars and are often called a ‘petrol head’, it’s sure to be one of the best experiences of your life. Many people love the V8 Supercar experience so much, they come back regularly.
As the 2016 V8 Supercar season hits the midway mark, the only thing you can be sure of is that there can only be one big smile on the final podium. However, when you book a V8 Supercar experience at Norwell Motorplex, you can have the same feeling without the hard work.
Norwell Motorplex was originally created as a defensive driving school and it still operates as one, with courses for every level of ability on offer. However, the decision to offer a V8 Supercar experience takes driver education a step further – when they drive, ride or race a V8 Supercar, clients learn skills that will make them better drivers on an everyday basis.
That’s definitely a win-win!
