Activity description :

Fasten your seatbelts: this is one exhilarating activity! After a few laps around the circuit as a passenger in a Porsche Cayenne, you'll get behind the wheel of another dream car: a Formula Renault. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced driver, you'll feel like a real racing driver. Thrills guaranteed!

The car: Formule Renault

The Formule Renault car will let you experience sensations close to those of a Formula 1 driver. Its 130hp 4-cylinder engine delivers performance on a par with the best GT cars. It accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 5.1 seconds and reaches a top speed of 220km/h. It weighs 450kg.

Circuit : Haute Saintonge (17)

Located 70 km from Bordeaux, this circuit is one of the most beautiful on the West Coast. Created in 2009, it's also one of France's fastest circuits, with two 650 m straights, a sensation accentuated by the site's undulating terrain. The 2.2 km track also features 7 bends, and promises an unforgettable driving experience. A 50 m2 briefing room is available to welcome and brief trainees. Fast food is available on site, and picnics are also possible.
