“I FEEL THE NEED…THE NEED FOR SPEED”
Drive six high performance cars, stay at Hambleton Hall and dine with Jonathan Palmer
No driving experience in the UK compares to a PalmerSport racing day. Since 1991 former F1 racer Jonathan Palmer has run corporate motorsport days, adding new thrills each year. You can drive an unrivalled collection of high performance sports cars and open-top racing cars on four purpose-built circuits at Bedford Autodrome. Uniquely, you are pushed right to your limit on every circuit as tracks have more spacious run-off areas than conventional motor racing venues, so the freedom to drive harder and faster than anywhere else comes with outstanding safety too.
New in 2015 was the re-design of the West circuit, new BMW M4 GTP cars and a revised, faster, single-seater Formula 3000. These add to the Live Timing screens which were introduced in 2014. These allow you to keep up to speed on the progress of your team mates and check how their lap times compare to yours. In competition these screens make compulsive viewing!
On Mon 26th September 2016 a unique collaboration has been formed so that you can have the day’s experience on the track, then check-in at Hambleton Hall for a special dinner and overnight stay in palatial surroundings. Hambleton Hall’s owner Tim Hart has an enviable team in place to ensure your short break at Hambleton Hall exceeds expectations. You will be personally greeted on arrival and shown to your room, before heading to dinner hosted by Jonathan Palmer to sample Michelin-star chef Aaron Patterson’s brilliant, assured cooking with wines matched by the unparalleled sommeliership of Dominique Baduel.
Prices include the days driving, full English breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea for drivers, vehicle damage excess waiver insurance, overnight stay at Hambleton Hall with aperitif, dinner and wines and full Hambleton breakfast. Packages start fro £920.
