Ever dreamed to be a pilot ? With our Ferrari test drive on the race track you can ! You will drive a Ferrari racecar model that is not street legal and that can be used only on a race track.

The track is more than two kilometers long, with thrilling bends, fast straits and undulating gradients. It has a pit lane with 21 stalls and a fully equipped paddock. At arrival you will have a technical and safety briefing, put-on the gear and finally get onboard the car.

You can choose between two Ferrari racecars: Ferrari 458 Challenge or Ferrari 488 Challenge. These models are not allowed to go on normal roads and may be used only on racing tracks. The transmission is derived from the Formula 1 models, they have a racing cockpit, the engine has been enhanced, all amenities have been removed (stereo, carpets, etc), they have been made lighter by using carbon fiber replacements and eliminating the sound deadening.

On one of these amazing vehicles you can do a total of 3 or 5 laps (if you wish to do more laps please contact us). For the first lap you will be on the passenger seat while a pilot will show you how to tame the super power of this car on the racetrack. You will then do the other laps at the steering wheel of the Ferrari, driving on the track, feeling the speed propelled by the more than 500HP motor.

IMPORTANT: The base price you will see by selecting the number of participants is considering 3 laps per person on the Ferrari 458 Challenge. You may add 2 more laps and do a total of 5 laps. Or you can upgrade to the even more powerful F488 Challenge and do a total of 5 laps. You can also add the video recording of your driving performance so you can share it with your friends and relive this amazing experience when you go back home.  If you want to add more laps please make the selection from the options menu located inside the reservation box in the upper right side of this page.

Driving license required, minimum age 18. Bookings are subject to race track availability (if there is no availability you will receive a full refund).

Hi Andrea, We had an excellent time on Thursday at the Ferrari Museum in Maranello and the Autodrome :) Our private driver was very friendly and helpful, he made the journey from Bologna much more interesting with his knowledge of the area, and even stopped outside the Ducati building on the way back so we could take a photo. He was excellent! The Ferrari museum itself was good fun, my husband walked around it twice just in case he missed anything :) The Ferrari race car test drive experience finished off what was a perfect day. The team there were very friendly and welcoming and my husband had a ball on the track. He would love to have 100 laps!! Thanks again! Louise

Ciao Cori! I just wanted to say thank you very much for helping me out with setting up the race track test drive - James was surprised and very thrilled with his experience! And Rossano was very kind to both of us. He was such a delight, too! When we go back to Italy, we'd love to try one of your other tours. Thank you very much for such a fun and exciting afternoon!
