Bringing the Competive Edge to Driving Days

DRIVING days have just got more competitive at the Rockingham Circuit in Northamptonshire with the launch of two new exciting packages for 2008.

TrackPro and Time Attack have been designed to bring out the competitive streak in everyone, on and off-the-track, while providing maximum driving time at an affordable price.

Both days feature new cars including the fantastic V8 Supercars, which are an exciting addition to the Rockingham fleet for 2008; the Ford Focus GpN Rally car and the slim-line Rockingham single-seater.

TrackPro gives guests the chance to focus on their track skills by providing more driving time for them to improve their racing line and lap times on real racing circuits.

The package includes learning the 1.9 mile National Circuit in three very different cars – the V8 Supercars, Mini Cooper S and Ferrari 360 - before taming the Oval in the Rockingham single-seater.

Finally the adrenalin will be pumping as guests sharpen their sliding skills and hone their reactions in the specially constructed skid car; attempt the tricky autotest course and enjoy a high-speed passenger ride around the Oval.

Time Attack centres on off-track activities as guests not only go head-to-head but will also have to battle against the clock in attempt to bag their team the points.

Activities on this package includes driving a Porsche 911 on the National, going off-road to conquer the 4x4 course, negotiate the integrate autotest, drift on the wet grip, and be a team player in the pit-stop challenge.

Guests will also go head-to-head in the new Ford Focus GpN cars around the Rockingham rally course, which has been improved to add more grit and edge to the activity.

Charlotte Orton, Director of Sales & Marketing at Rockingham, said: “The new driving days offer guests the opportunity to drive a range of fantastic cars, a combination of which hasn’t previously been seen in the UK.

“We have made it our business to use genuine racing cars, such as the V8 Supercars which is based on a road car, making it accessible to drivers of all abilities and experiences.

“Both packages have been designed to bring out the competitive side in people, while at the same time maintaining the entertainment for the more cautious drivers.”

To ensure guests get the most from their visit to Rockingham and much more drive time, the number of places on a team for all driving packages has been reduced to just 12.

With full catering, prizes and photographs of the day also included all days are suitable for rewarding staff or loyal customers, team-building or even entertaining new clients.
