Four-hour stunt-car driving experiences in Bowmanville and Huntsville commence with a classroom session packed with safety rules and driving tips. Then, drivers command automatic-transmission sedans through a variety of as-seen-on-TV stunts, including slalom-course runs, 180-degree spins, and accident avoidance. Students also can choose to take the passenger seat and ride along with instructors as they whip vehicles through the action-filled course. The half-day Formula-car driving experience also lasts four hours, during which time instructors supervise as students enjoy three 12-lap sessions around the track in a standard-transmission Formula 2000 race car infused with the power of 185 horses.
The centre’s speed specialists recommend wearing light, comfortable clothing, and each speedometer-testing session takes place rain or shine. Dates available for scheduling begin in May 2013.
