3. Buy a Gift – Driving Days
Wild passion versus refined elegance. It’s a quandary that many have faced, should they go with the sheer brute power of a Ferrari or should they choose the style and sophistication of the Aston Martin? With this package, you don’t need to make that decision as you get to enjoy both. Two of the world’s hottest cars just waiting for you to hop in and take them for a spin around the track. The perfect day out for a real driving enthusiast, these cars are the ultimate in motoring achievement. Get a full briefing from a highly trained instructor and then pilot a Ferrari 360/355 for 3 miles around the track. Swap the rawness of the Italian Stallion for something a little more refined by then hopping into the cockpit of the Aston Martin before putting it through its paces for another 3-mile drive. If you undertake the experience at either Kenilworth or Prestwold, you will also get the opportunity of an amazing off-road passenger ride. At the end of your day receive a certificate to celebrate the time you sampled the best of both Italian and English motor engineering! Order here
