The Mk1 Escort may not normally be mentioned in the same breath as Ferraris and Porsches, but driving this iconic car is an experience that will appeal to anyone who appreciates the value of the vintage design and engineering. The Mk1 Escort combines practicality and style in a way that has transcended decades of fickle fashions to provide a lasting tribute to the trends of its time.
Anyone who has seen Fast and Furious 6 will want to find out what it was really like to throw the Mk1 Escort around a race track, and this is the perfect opportunity. The day starts with a safety briefing and a hot drink to fortify the driver for what is to come.
Then it’s into car for six laps/miles with an expert instructor in the passenger seat who will help participants to navigate the track in the most effective way and explain how to get the best out of the car. For anyone who is driven by a need for speed or simply wants to find out what these amazing vehicles are capable of, this is their chance to put the car through its paces and find out whether they have what it takes to make the most of this exception vehicle - a classic of its time.
Please note, there will be a £25 supplement fee if you choose to visit the Dunsfold, Blyton Park or Castle Combe venue.
