If you are keen on fast cars, Hilton Honors and McLaren have got together to organise another exceptional track day.
This is what you get:
Here’s your chance to score the ultimate McLaren track day experience at the famous Dunsfold Circuit. You and a guest will have the opportunity to experience the full capabilities of a McLaren road car, combined with the highest standard of hospitality.
Dunsfold Circuit is designed to deliver a fun mix of low and high-speed corners as well as a series of straights, offering the optimal track for this McLaren track day experience.
This experience for two (2) includes:
Opportunity to drive both a McLaren 570S and 720S alongside professionally qualified driving coaches
Hot Lap, where the driving coach will take the wheel and show you how to maximize car performance around the track
VIP hospitality throughout the day, including lunch
Please note this package does not include rail, airfare or hotel accommodations. Must be 25+ years of age and have valid international driving license.
If you know anything about performance cars you’ll know what an opportunity this is. If you don’t, it’s not for you anyway! The date is 24th October.
Last year this was a ‘buy it now’ deal for 275,000 Hilton Honors points. This year it is being auctioned, and by coincidence the price is currently 275,000 points but could obviously go higher.
It isn’t cheap – based on my 0.33p per point valuation, you are ‘paying’ close to £900 at the current bid – but it would be an amazing day out. You can bid here.
