Our full day arrive & drive packages include tuition, fuel and your track fee, so you really do just arrive & drive! All you’ll need is your drivers licence and a helmet (you can hire a helmet from the circuit too if needs be)
We currently have three cars to choose from, two ek Honda Civics and a Ford Focus ST170.
EK Civic Race Car
The Trackdays.ie Ek Honda Civic is a fully prepared, ex Future Classics race car. It’s fitted with a tuned D15B SOHC VTEC engine producing just over 130bhp. That might not sound a lot, but combined with it’s light weight stripped out interior, uprated brakes and suspension and sticky track tyres it’s certainly quick! As you’d expect with a race car the Trackdays.ie Civic is fitted with all the necessary safety equipment such as multi-point weld-in roll cage, Bucket seats, 6 point safety harnesses and plumbed-in fire extinguisher.
The Focus ST170 is the latest addition to the Trackdays.ie fleet and features the powerful Duratec motor pushing out just over 170bhp thanks to the full stainless exhaust system and 4-branch manifold. It runs much firmer, lower track suspension, has a partially stripped out interior with lightweight racing Corbeau bucket seats and 6 point racing harnesses.
EK Civic Track Car
Our second EK civic is the same model as the race car but is a track car, not a race car. It has the same D15B engine, stripped out interior, virtually the same uprated suspension but, like the Focus, isn’t caged.
The choice of cars is purely on a first come, first served basis and if any car is out of action we may use any of the others.
With the full day arrive & drive package your instructor will have plenty of time to asses your driving and will be able to offer quite detailed advice on all aspects of your track driving. Initially your instructor will sit in the passenger seat while you drive. In certain circumstances it may be beneficial to your tuition for the instructor to drive for a lap or two to illustrate certain certain points. Once your instructor is happy that you have a good grasp of driving on track you will be allowed on track on your own. Your instructor will continue to be available for the remainder of your session
Our full day arrive & drive packages are great if you’re serious about improving your driving or if you want to get out on track but don’t have access to a suitable car
