Black Friday may have been and gone, but fans of fast cars can still get a cracker of a Christmas deal at Croft Circuit, with generous discounts on supercar driving experiences and 2016 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship tickets until the end of this year.
Petrol-heads will delight in flinging a Ferrari F430 or 458 Italia around one of the quickest circuits in Britain, or getting to grips with the ultra-rare – not to mention ultra-fast and ultra-sophisticated – 6.5-litre, 750bhp Lamborghini Aventador Roadster which sprints to 60mph in less than three seconds and continues on past 200mph.
The awesome Lamborghini Huracán V10 and elegant Jaguar F-Type S came along to play in 2015, and both have been instant hits. Alternatively, if the Spectre of 007 still lingers, the very British and very James Bond Aston Martin V8 Vantage awaits – around Croft’s challenging, technical layout, it’ll be sure to leave you feeling shaken, not stirred.
Experiences start at under £100 and all come with expert tuition from fully-qualified racing instructors and the cast-iron guarantee of an unforgettable white-knuckle ride, but if you’d sooner leave the foot-to-the-floor action to the pros, the high-octane, thrill-a-minute British Touring Car Championship is the perfect day out.
Britain’s premier motor sport series, the BTCC attracts grids of up to 30 flame-spitting tin-tops that generate wild wheel-to-wheel racing and doorhandle-to-doorhandle drama. With no fewer than ten different winners and 15 podium finishers this year, unpredictability is always a key feature, and between now and the end of December, fans can take advantage of a flurry of festive packages.
Tickets for qualifying on Saturday, 18 June are available for just £11 as opposed to £14, race day tickets on Sunday, 19 June are reduced from £28 to £21 and weekend passes are down from £36 to £31. Grandstand seats on race day are a snip at an additional £8, whilst accompanied children aged 15 and under are admitted to the circuit free of charge.
“The BTCC is Britain’s most popular race series for good reason – it’s pure, unadulterated flat-out fun for all the family – never a dull moment!” enthused circuit manager Mike Cantelo. “Why not surprise someone with tickets to the 2016 race meeting at Croft – it’ll be sure to put a smile on fans’ faces on Christmas Day!
“Alternatively, if you’re feeling a little racy yourself, come along and see what our driving experiences are all about – from the Ferrari 458 to the Lamborghini Huracán and Aston Martin V8 Vantage, our supercars are our true superstars. You’d pay £330,000 to drive the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster on the road, but if you book now, it will cost you just £290 to drive it at Croft – that has to beat a lump of coal and a Terry’s Chocolate Orange!”
