For Simraceway, we continue to engage with the annual build up to this great event by giving you FREE access to drive some iconic cars that are associated with this style of motor racing.

Test Drive Tuesday also gives you the chance to own these vehicles for good with a 50% discount off the purchase price if you acquire them during this promotion.
