Not Your Average Racing School

 Set in a unique 1960’s atmosphere and using our historic-based single seater race cars, you will learn track and performance driving with our driving programs created for beginners or learn how to shave time off your laptimes if you’re an experienced driver. We also organize unique experiences for corporate clients to go back in time to the sixties.
