Learn to Gymkhana! A whole day of learning how to gymkhana, with tuition from seasoned competitors and a little bit of competition, too!
If you've ever fancied giving Formula G a go, but found competing a little bit daunting, this is for you. An amazing opportunity to dip your toes in to the world of gymkhana in a relaxed environment, all while being coached by experienced Formula G competitors. You'll also have the opportunity to ride along with the pros to experience close to race pace runs!
Before the event, you'll be invited to a Zoom call so you have the opportunity to ask any questions you might have about the day.
Upon arrival and signing on, you will receive a briefing before doing a track walk with the Formula G team to discuss the track, and gain invaluable hints and tips on how to navigate it. After that, the track will go live, with the Formula G drivers showing you how it's done (top tip: watching other drivers is a great way to learn the course!), before jumping in to your own cars to have a go with a team member by your side. While you're not driving, watch the action and do some 'spotting' for your fellow drivers to help identify where they can make improvements to their runs, or practice some skills in our freestyle arena.
After a break, to help your lunch settle, you'll have the opportunity to ride as a passenger with one of the Formula G drivers for a hot lap! And after that, it will be back to perfecting your runs, but this time without the help of someone sitting in with you - it will be time to drive solo! And, if you're up for it, we'll also let you run side by side so you can experience the thrill of a head to head 'battle'!
At the end of the day, we'll finish up with a small competition to see who is the fastest learner... will you make the top step of the podium? Only one way to find out! Regardless of how you finish, all drivers will get a pack of digital photographs of them shredding (or destroying!) the course.
Strictly for drivers who have never competed in Formula G before.
