An awesome way to experience the main race circuit is with the Highlands Taxi - enjoy a leisurely informative tour for your first lap and then our Highlands pro driver will help you to experience the second lap at speed! Perhaps the Supercar Fast Dash is more your style; hold on for a single lap blast as a passenger in a Highlands Supercar 0-100km/h in 3 seconds (subject to availability it will be either a Ferrari, Mclaren or a Porsche).
