Rockingham Xperience Driving Days 2017-08-22T11:33:35+00:00

The Rockingham Xperience

Entertain clients, host a team-building event or simply treat yourself with an exceptional day that will excite, challenge and leave a lasting memory with every participant. With unique driving experiences, using access to a superb fleet of high performance cars and three real race circuits, including the UK’s only high speed oval, performance driving days at Rockingham will surpass all expectations.

  • Experience the thrill of some of the world’s top supercars such as Ferrari, Lamborghini and the legendary Ariel Atom, all on our renowned FIA licenced National Circuit
  • Test your nerve driving a genuine single-seater Formula Xperience open wheel race car on Europe’s fastest racing circuit and the UK’s only banked Oval
  • Race against the clock without sacrificing precision around AutoTest course
  • Prove your technical prowess and skill navigating the challenging 4×4 course in the mighty Land Rover Defender
  • Become a master of over-steer, under-steer and sideways drift on our purpose built Wet Grip zone.

Rockingham Xperience Day – The Challenge

The Rockingham Xperience is all about variety. You’ll get to drive a selection of our racing cars on four very different tracks, providing a challenge for everyone.

GBS Auto-Test

You’ll be cheering on your team-mates as they screech their way round the tricky auto-test course in our lightweight, super quick Great British Sportscar (GBS), desperately trying to avoid sending cones flying while scrabbling for grip. You’ll be laughing your head off as they demolish the course – but then it’s your turn in the hot seat. What’s more, you’re up against the clock. This experience is not only about speed but also agility and precision, pushing you to the limits to see how you work under pressure. Will you crack or have you got what it takes to clear the course without penalties?

On The Track

The National Circuit mixes technical low speed corners with high speed sweeping curves. To master this circuit you’ll need to be super-smooth and position the car accurately lap after lap. You’ll have to look ahead and anticipate braking areas while still maintaining maximum speed.

Supercar Head-to-Head

You’ll get behind the wheel of not one, but two of world’s top supercars, in a head-to-head challenge to compare the performance of the Ferrari or Lamborghini  – which will you prefer?

Ariel Atom Challenge

Or maybe you’ll enjoy stripping everything back to the driving bare essentials with the Ariel Atom  – no traction control, no ABS, just pure power! The blistering acceleration and raw speed experience will be sure to leave your heart in your mouth and a smile on your face.

Wet Grip Encounter

Ready for the unexpected? Water which springs up out of nowhere, a kick-plate which fires you off-line, a polished surface, so smooth it’s like ice. On our unique wet grip area you will learn where the limits are with our dynamic driving instruction. You’ll soon be honing your reactions dodging our water walls with flamboyant slides. These hard-to-master techniques will stand you in good stead in any driving situation. Learning how to drive on our highly-polished basalt tile surface is tricky but will have you grinning from ear-to-ear.

Off-Road Challenge

Could you cut it off-road? It’s tough, it’ll max your driving abilities but it’s the most fun you can have at just 5mph! In the Xperience Land Rover Defender you’ll feel invincible as you crest the peaks and plough the troughs. Top 4×4 fun.

Formula RX

Can you tame the oval in our single-seaters with the commitment needed to drive these racing cars right to the edge? The Formula RX single-seaters embody racing in its rawest form -without limits and can hit over 140mph around Europe’s fastest racing circuit and the UK’s only banked Oval. Driving these single-seaters takes courage, it takes top skills to keep your foot to the floor. Tiny adjustments of the controls – and your nerve – are all that’s needed.

Ariel Atom

Both these activities will take place on Rockingham’s 1.7-mile National Circuit, which mixes technical low speed corners with high speed sweeping curves.
