The Auto Action

Mt. Panorama - Bathurst, NSW

  • 4 Drive laps

Automatic licence holders – Have you ever wanted to feel the adrenaline of driving a V8 race car?

We now have two new Autos that deliver all of the action and excitement of our manual cars that everyone can drive.

With 91% of cars sold in Australia last year being autos and 75% of drivers under 25 years of age having auto licences, we’ve now engineered a race-spec Ford and Holden V8 Auto that’s fast and fun. Now anyone with a licence can make the dream of being a V8 racing car driver a reality.

This is undoubtedly one of the most exclusive and challenging performance driving experiences on the planet. The infamous Mount Panorama Racing Circuit is only open for non-Motorsport Australia licensed drivers for 2 days each year. Fastrack V8 Race is the only approved provider of V8 drives that will leave you feeling like the “King of the Mountain”. This VIP gift is reassuringly expensive, very limited and sells out every year. The high price reflects the high cost of staging this extraordinary event. Dreams become reality for a lucky few. Book now. Life goes fast.

  • 4 driving laps in an automatic race car with a Motorsport Australia licensed pro in-car coach
  • Exclusive opportunity to drive the famous 6.2 km Mount Panorama Racing Circuit
  • Pre-drive briefing, use of a race suit and open face helmet
  • Cars have electronic lap counters with laps measured from pit to pit

On arrival you will sign on and be kitted up into your race attire, have your photo taken in our professional photo garage and when ready, have your helmet fitted and be strapped in for a full tilt 4 lap driving experience in an automatic race car that will give you a lasting impression to remember!

Extras available for purchase:

  • Large framed twin photo souvenir
  • Live action video in-car recording

Mt Panorama—the legend itself. Mt Panorama and it’s signature event, the Bathurst 1000 is the crown jewel in Australian motor racing and the ultimate destination for any true blue V8 racing fan.

The perfect mix of speed, endurance and excitement, Mt Panorama ticks every box, making it one of the most exciting and challenging circuits in motorsport.

However, despite its global fame, Mount Panorama isn’t a permanent racetrack. The circuit is made up of public roads that access homes and farms and usually maintains a strict 60km/h speed limit.

This means that few people get to experience Mt Panorama as it should be enjoyed—in the seat of a V8 Supercar at hair-raising speed! However, for a lucky few, dreams can become reality. The mountain plays host to a limited number of V8 driving or hot lap experiences, where lucky participants can join the small and exclusive club of drivers who get to experience the thrill and power of the mountain—just like a professional V8 Supercar racing driver.
