If being a spectator doesn’t get your pulse racing, then it’s time to kick it up a notch and take on the hot lap challenge. V8 works with a number of Supercar Drivers like Steve White, Shane Price, and Marcus Zukanovic to deliver hair-raising hot laps around Sydney Motorsport Park. You will be strapped in the driver’s seat and guided through the experience via an intercom. Grip tight and enjoy the on-track thrill as you tear up the tarmac like James Hunter or Niki Lauda and watch as the surroundings blend into a blur. If you want to live out your racing fantasies, but don’t have what it takes to master the beast, then jump into the passenger seat of a competition drift car offered by Drift School Australia to get a taste of controlled chaos.
Where: All over Australia, with major racetracks in Gold Coast, Eastern Greek and Sandown Raceway
Best Time to Go: Australia has pretty good weather all year round, but try to avoid the rainy season in June as it could be too wet to race.
How much: Both hot laps and drift experiences are priced between AUD 200-450
