Savannah Corlett saw what it is like with V8 Drive Day principal driving instructor Alan Letcher.
She described it as exhilarating and ‘a whole lot of adrenalin-fuelled fun’.
‘These are real V8 Supercars, they are loud in all senses of the word and take a bit of wrestling to maintain control, but once you get the hang of it you are hooked,’ she said. ‘I drove my first one a couple of years ago as a birthday gift and it was such a buzz that I have always wanted to do it again.
‘I’m not sure I would make it a career path but it certainly gives you a new focus on car control and it is good to be able to do it in a safe environment rather than on the street.’
