HALF-DAY experience: Innes Ireland

This 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 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.

The Innes Ireland driving experience begins with a safety debrief and class on track-driving in our lounge, where we’ll explain how to drive the Crosslé 90F single seater on the technical Charade circuit, and what driving techniques to use.

We’ll then move to the track where you’ll be taken for 2 sighting laps with an instructor to show you the way around the track, discussing the various lines, braking and turn-in points, before getting back in the pitlane and installing you in your car for your first track session, where you and your group will follow a pace car in a lead-follow session to help you get up to speed as quickly as possible.

Once out of the car, our team of instructors will debrief with you and see where you can improve your driving, 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 driving and coaching sessions, where you’ll try to put what the instructors said into action, and most of all enjoy your drive!

Crosslé 90F single seaters

Especially built for us by the original factory in Northern Ireland, we have 10 Crosslé 90F single seaters that have been recreated and modernized for us, based on their 1969 Crosslé 16F.

An authentic ’60s immersion

A characterful lounge with chesterfields, a welcoming bar, vintage racing memorabilia, everything feet away from the track to transport you to a 100% retro atmosphere, one you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

Polyvalence and security

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.
