Silverstone spreads some festive cheer with the ultimate Christmas gifts‏

New for Christmas 2011: Supercar Roulette

Experience the ‘Thrill’ of Silverstone from just £79

What to get a teenager?

 Silverstone has the ultimate gift for everyone this Christmas, with a wide range of Driving Thrills and Experiences available at discounted, festive season rates. New for 2011 is Silverstone’s £79 Supercar Roulette Voucher*, providing friends and family with the opportunity to drive one of three iconic road cars – either a Ferrari, Nissan GT-R or Aston Martin – in the tyre tracks of legends, at the home of the British Grand Prix.

 The Supercar Roulette Voucher is perfect for anyone wanting an adrenaline fuelled taste of life in the fast lane. The choice of supercars ticks all the boxes: for budding 007s, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage is ready to be shaken not stirred, while for those preferring a touch of Italian flair, Silverstone’s fleet of Ferraris are waiting to be driven with style. Alternatively, for a modern engineering marvel, the Nissan GT-R offers a perfect amalgamation of luxury and speed.

 The voucher also removes any uncertainty surrounding which supercar to choose for friends and family, as Supercar Roulette comes with a twist: recipients won’t know which of these three sensational, high performance cars they will be driving until they get to Silverstone on the day. An additional £70 will secure the opportunity to drive two of these spectacular cars.

 In addition to the Supercar Roulette, Silverstone offers an impressive collection of first-class driving Thrills. From £85, members of the public can take to sections of the world famous Grand Prix Circuit in one of Silverstone’s supercars, including a Lotus Exige, Audi R8 or Nissan 370Z.

 Alternatively, for any aspiring Lewis Hamiltons or Jenson Buttons, the Single Seater Thrill is the closest many will ever get to driving a Formula One car at Silverstone, providing a slick, super-quick taste of formula racing. Then again, others may prefer to tackle the RallyThrill, providing some off-road fun on a purpose-built rally handling stage in a works-built Ford Fiesta ST 150.

 Silverstone Driving Experiences make perfect gifts for those wanting a little more time behind the wheel and out on track. In the run up to Christmas, Silverstone is offering ‘festive special prices’ on two of its most popular Experiences: the Single Seater Experience, reduced to £159 from £175; and the Ferrari 360 Experience, now only £199 (reduced from £255*).

What to get for teenagers…

Silverstone also has younger members of the family covered off this Christmas. The Northamptonshire circuit provides teenagers (aged 13 years and above) with a unique opportunity to learn the basics of driving a car, or riding a motorcycle on its Rookie Drive or Rookie Ride Experience (available from £50). Both Experiences are designed to introduce teens to driving and riding in a safe and controlled environment, with first class tuition from fully qualified instructors (visit for age restrictions).
