HOT SHOT EXPERIENCE  “No Experience Required”

Do you have what it takes to be a professional hot lap driver for Australia’s largest race car experience company? You won’t know if you don’t try.


HOT SHOT EXPERIENCE: Each Hot Shot Experience includes two 6 lap sessions (12 laps in total) with coaching and judging. This will determine if you have what it takes to move into the Top Ten candidates chosen for the “shootout”.

SHOOTOUT: If upon initial Hot Shot judging, you qualify to enter the Top Five shootout in each State, you will be invited back at a later date, where the fastest contestant overall will be awarded a one-year contract as a professional hot lap driver for Fastrack V8 race.

  • The winners will receive professional training and a motorsport licence.


  • Any purchase of the Hot Shot program will instantly receive 15% off any additional experiences for family, friends or for themselves to develop their experience until the date of the shootout.
  • All top 5 top qualifiers are awarded the prestigious ‘red elite jacket’ and for those who do not win the shootout, they will have the opportunity to be further trained as a professional Race Experience Coach for Fastrack.

On the day, you’ll be assigned a professional in-car coach for one-on-one briefing and tuition. Your coach will be with you to enhance your 6 lap Practice session, then judge and score your second 6 lap session, and take note of your improvement on track. Independently, a second professional racing instructor will review and score your in-car telemetry and video.

The 10 highest point scorers will be invited to participate in a Shootout in Sydney or Sandown with the fastest driver at each venue awarded a one-year contract as a HOT SHOT professional V8 hot lap driver.
