Experience driving a first generation Ford Escort with this classic car track day. You’ll feel like a movie star on this unique experience day, combining an appreciation for vintage design with high-speed thrills.
This classic car was the first European Ford and was in production from 1967 to 1975. A UK bestseller in the 1960s, it quickly solidified its status as a truly classic car. Known for its “coke bottle” waistline and “dogbone” front grille, it is an iconic example of practical and timeless design. It was also a firm favourite for rallying and later gained additional fame after it was featured in The Fast And The Furious 6, driven by Paul Walker.
So, if you have a need for speed and fancy taking a spin around the race track in this classic car, now is your opportunity! As you arrive at the race track, you’ll be taken through a safety briefing while a hot drink of your choosing fortifies you for the drive. After that, you’ll hop into the car for six laps around the track with an expert instructor by your side to help you navigate the track while offering expert advice on how to get the most out of the car.
This vintage car driving experience with a Ford Escort Mk1 is a must for all petrolheads and would make a great gift for any classic car enthusiast.
