This is your chance to take the wheel of a Lotus Exige for 8km around Hampton Downs Raceway in Auckland. The Exige's light weight & low suspension puts it in a class of its own and you'll be right in on the action.

The sleek style and compact design has all the appeal of the Elise, with a whole new level of power. After you strap in and run through the briefing with our experienced instructor, you'll be off for an unforgettable drive around what drivers consider the greatest track in the Southern Hemisphere.

Take it all in as you drive for 8km around Hamptons Downs Raceway while one of our expert instructors guide you on the finer points of handling this supercar. The noise is unparalleled and the experience will never be forgotten.

Then just when you thought it couldn't get any better, you’ll get the chance to jump into the passenger seat of the awesome Mitsubishi EvoX for a fast lap around the track. A great way to finish off the experience, every seat is as good as the next in this very capable car so whether you’re in the front or the back seat you’ll be smiling when you get out. The ultimate end to a once in a life-time driving experience.

Just one word. Awesome!!!!!!!!!! The guys and gals were great. I was unsure what to expect with having an instructor in the car as I thought it would be don't do this and don't do that but it turns out without them you just simply would not get the enjoyment out of it that you do. Would recommend this to anyone who can drive a normal (and now very boring standard family car) as that is all the skill you need, Freeman X does the rest and you will enjoy it.

Enter your feedback here The Lotus Experience was well worthwhile, I purchased it for my husband for fathers day at only $99 and we were concerned it might be too short an experience. He had a great time and loved all aspects of the morning. Well worth it!
