HALF-DAY driving experience: Innes Ireland

This classic car driving experience is inspired by the driver that won the first race ever held at the Charade circuit in 1958: Innes Ireland.

Tailored to every driver, this classic car driving experience is the perfect introduction to track driving and will take you straight into the world of historic motorsports, with 3 x 20 minute driving sessions in our vintage single seaters on the iconic Charade circuit – one of the world’s most challenging racetracks.

Our team of instructors will debrief with you and see where you can improve your driving between each session, while always giving you absolute freedom on track. Once you’ve recovered from the first session, its time to get back in the car for the 2 other sessions, where you’ll try to put what the instructors said into action, and most of all enjoy your drive!

Open to drivers of all levels (tall and wide drivers should contact us before booking to check they fit in the car)

Up to 18 drivers per session | 8h00 – 14h00 or 12h00 – 18h00

Versatility and safety

A racing school for every level of driving. Our single seaters might look vintage, but their ’60s look are deceiving: They are more spacious, safer and more driver friendly than the 1969 original, being able to accomodate all levels of driving and sizes for a unforgettable classic car driving experience.
