GT40 | Cars
If you've always dreamed of being a racing driver, look no futher than a Car Chase Heroes Ford GT40 track day. One of our top speedsters, you'll never forget the feeling of throwing this beast around our race track. With experience days from only £59.00, become a LeMans 24 hours legend for the day in our very own GT40!
Ford's GT40 is surely one of the most famous and iconic racing cars of all time, winning the World's greatest race: The LeMans 24 Hours 4 times in a row! The name GT40 is not random and comes from the cars tiny body that is only 40 inches off the ground! These 1960's racing cars where powered by a poweful Ford V8 engine producing 500+BHP. This is your chance to drive a re-creation of one of the greatest racing cars ever built!!
Drove the GT40 at Kemble on Sunday 11th March. It was a gift from my son and daughter in law for my 60th birthday. Wow!! On arrival, we were marshalled to a car park space, and on walking towards the sign in area, we could hear the sounds of screeching wheels and roaring engines. Perfect start. Decided to take the sighting laps, and a ride in the Ariel Atom as a passenger. The GT40 was exactly as I expected, with no power steering or servo brakes. I opted for extra laps, and would advise this option. It took on or two laps to get "bedded in", then was able to push harder for the remaining laps. Dan, the instructor was brilliant. Many thanks to him. When the time arrived for my passenger ride in the Atom, I was already buzzing with excitement. I cannot put into words how exciting the ride was. Never have I felt such exhilaration on acceleration. It was fantastic. So much so, my son also decided to have a go. It put massive smiles on our faces. Cannot wait to return again.Les Jones
Loved this experience. A very different super car to drive than others I have driven but all the more special for it. I've never driven anything with so much power but so little breaking ability! Great, great fun. This was the iconic super car from my childhood and completely lived up to expectations. Thank you!Jason Peacock

Hi Tom, just a quick note to say thanks for the tremendous experience I had on Sunday, from the excellent drive briefing from your Head Instructor(sorry do not remember his name) the Ladies carrying out the log-in and photos, the Car maintenance teams and Instructors they all did a brilliant job. The feeling was that they all made it easy for your clients to get everything they wanted out of the experience, which was certainly true in my case, the car looked great in the Gulf livery and driving it was so different to some of the other "Supercars" I have driven in that it was a real experience of a 1966-69 Le Mans car with no power steering or brakes just the feel and smell of a car built for the sole purpose of taking the Le Mans Crown from Ferrari. From the moment I got into the car it seemed that it was built for me as the position of the seat, pedals and steering wheel were all exactly as I would have set them and also my special thanks go to Tim for his first class instruction on braking points/gears and track use which made my day so special. Once again Thanks Tom, a great day out !!!!!Bob Isherwood
