Give your Dad a Father’s Day gift to remember by spending the day burning rubber sideways in a Caterham Seven. The one-day Caterham Driving Experience (CDX) courses, starting from £99, will put Dad behind the wheel of the legendary Caterham Seven where he’ll be taught how to push the British sportscar to its limits in a relaxed and safe environment.
CDX days aren’t just for wannabe racers, they appeal to anybody with a driving licence and a sense of fun! What could be better than thrashing somebody else’s sportscar for the day with no guilty conscience?
The Caterham Seven is widely regarded as one of the purest driving experiences available. Stripped to the very basics, these lightweight two-seaters offer unparalleled driver feedback with none of the boring electronics that dull the sensation of most modern supercars – just you and the road.
With traction control now banned from F1, the rear-wheel smoking antics of drivers like Lewis Hamilton can be emulated in the Super Seven by tackling a tricky Slalom or Drift course. Participants will be taught to use the rear wheels to steer, powersliding through the assembled bends and learning tricks like doing a doughnut.
Concluding the day’s excitement, these news skills will be put to the test around a timed course to provide friendly competition among participants on the day. Once the tyre smoke settles on what will be a memorable day, your Dad will be left with a certificate, new skills and possibly a trophy but certainly a broad smile across his face.
It’s not just your father who’ll be free to scare himself, or surprise all with his driving prowess, share in this unforgettable experience together and let the friendly rivalry commence.
Caterham Driving Experience days run throughout the year, and venues include Brands Hatch, Cadwell Park, Castle Coombe, Elvington, Oulton Park and Silverstone.
