    "Experience currently runs at Wakefield Park. Eastern Creek dates will be available later in the year."

    Will the purchase be valid for 10 laps Eastern Creek (full circuit)?

      Hi Steptoe
      Eastern Creek is currently closed for resurfacing and is scheduled to open in July. The voucher is valid until November so that should give you more than enough time to book in for an Eastern Creek run.
      Cheers.

        "Eastern Creek is currently closed for resurfacing and is scheduled to open in July."

        really?
        Then why are other 'car experience' companies running at eastern creek currently…
        fasttrack racing has 'v8 experiences' at eastern creek still running for May/June/July and onwards

    NSW in title please… also would be nice to know how fast these things go… my mate had a super cart that could hit 200 on a long straight, as these are for the general public id imagine they are faily watered down?

    $199 for 20 mins seems a bit steep

      Heh, you know how much petrol you'll use in 20 minutes?

    • +1 vote

      Petrol, engine maintenance, tyre wear (Would be pretty high with hard cornering + brakeing), insurance costs etc..

      I think this represents pretty good value

        i can lend you my road car and you'll give you'll give up after 10 mins

        an open wheeler has much higher side loadings and it takes a reasonably fit person to hammer a Formula Ford for 20 mins

    i did this at mondello race park in ireland and it cost 100 euros which is about $120 , so even at the reduced price it still kinda expensive in my opinion.

    this represents good value imo. these types of experiences are very expensive in Australia. considering you can drive this at your own pace, is good enough. i run a 1:07 around wakefield in my street registered sports car, open wheelers can run around 1 min (if you are a good driver) lap times and under @ Wakefield Park. It would be better value to use this experience at Eastern Creek, Longer track higher speeds, would take you longer to complete 1 lap giving you more time in the drivers seat (approx. 1:35 or less in these cars per laps if you are a good driver) and more of a "thrill"

    I dont see how wakefield park can be the same price as eastern creek with this deal, be wary when purchasing.
