The Main Event

It's time to step it up a gear and pit these 2 legendary cars against each other!

You'll get the chance to drive both the Shelby GT500 Mustang and the Ford "Bullitt" Mustang, but which will be your favourite?

Made famous by the 2000 movie "Gone in 60 seconds" the "Eleanor" Shelby GT500 Mustang is highly regarded as an excellent track day car, thanks to its powerful engine, sophisticated suspension, effective braking, aerodynamic design, and optimal weight distribution... we could go on! Its iconic status amongst car enthusiasts will make this one special driving experience to remember.

The Ford "Bullitt" Mustang won't disappoint either. It has a classic Mustang silhouette but subtle tweaks have been made to improve airflow and reduce lift at high speeds, enhancing overall stability and handling. It's an  exhilarating car to drive on the track, you won't forget this driving experience in a hurry!  

The only choice you need to make is whether you go for the 12 lap option or the 20 lap option. Both come with 4 sighting laps and a high speed passenger lap.

What about Insurance?

The centres contracted with us hold public liability insurance. We also hold contingency liability cover.

Some operators require customers to complete an indemnity/damage waiver form prior to taking the experience. This may state the driver is liable for a fixed amount of costs should they damage the vehicle whilst driving. Most operators are able to provide additional insurance to cover this at a small additional fee, payable on site. The purchase of this is optional and is in addition to the public liability insurance held by all venues. The full details of any indemnity or damage waiver and additional insurance will be provided by the activity operator. WonderDays is unable to advise or comment on the content or suitability of any such waiver or additional insurance.

How it Works
