Leeds Supercar experience

Nearby Leeds there are two Supercar venues that allow you to have the supercar experience: Elvington (near York) and Tockwith (near Horrogate). These venues are perfect if you are into high speeds or luxury high-end cars. Brilliant cars such as Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Marton, Porsche, Audi R8 and more!

At Elvington, you could even improve your driving skills with a drifting or stunt driving experience. Just don't do this on the main roads!

The Tockwith centre allows you to drive an array of vehicles and even super trucks! Pricing starts around £35 per hour all the way up to £200+ per hour.

For the day trip, you will spend around 2 hours there, including safety training sessions of course. The majority of your time, you will be swerving around the course and driving around so fast in an absolutely beast of a machine. Don't forget to take in the ambience.

Since these experiences are on private land, juniors can join in as they don't need a driver's licence. You can find out more about the Tockwith Driving Experience.
