Race circuits kindly give Speed of Sight sole use of the venue for the track day. So when you arrive the people you see are also there for the Speed of Sight event. Staff and volunteers can be easily spotted by their Hi Vis vests.
Come and meet us at the welcome point, this is usually in the spectator area. There will be chairs available and volunteers there to chat to and answer any questions. We love meeting new people and welcoming back old friends.
You will be able to see/hear the cars on the track and have a view of the pit lane. This gives an
opportunity for guests to understand what to expect and a great chance to soak up the atmosphere.
There is also a little essential paperwork that needs completing before the drive which you will be
asked to do. You will have been given an hour time slot. The aim is for you to have your 20 minute drive at some point during that hour.
Oooh this is when it starts getting really exciting.
When it is your turn you will be taken to the pit lane and met by a member of the pit lane crew who
will accompany you to the car. A family member/carer can also accompany to support into the car and take pictures if they wish. You will be helped to get ready for the drive – balaclava and helmet on, safety harness on, seat adjustments completed.
You will be introduced to your instructor. They will have a chat to understand what support you will need and to explain the controls.
Time to enjoy that feeling of exhilaration, the wind on your face, the adrenalin rush.
You and the stig will be able to communicate throughout the drive via comms in the helmet. As you pass the spectator area you may be able to hear the shouts and applause or you may be so focused that all the support goes unheard. When you see the chequered flag this lets you know it is the last lap. One final lap to enjoy.
Back into the pit lane and time to share how it felt and to enjoy the sense of achievement.
Get presented with a certificate to mark the day and another opportunity for family/friends to take photos. You will be asked for feedback to make sure we keep delivering the greatest experience possible. You are welcome to stay to watch others on the track and to chat.
WELCOME TO THE SPEED OF SIGHT FAMILY
