We can do it, simply because we can!
Kids as young as 10 driving on Circuit Zandvoort in Ferrari’s and Aston Martins. Sounds unbelievable? It happens at Bleekemolens Race Planet! And the kids love it. Therefore, note down: next Rookie Driving is planned for juli 24 and august 8!
Race Planet organises rookie driving on a regular basis on Circuit Zandvoort. Children over the age of 10 can jump behind the wheel. Of course we don’t aim to turn them into full-blown drivers. We simply do it, because we can! Rookie driving in itself is unique. But Bleekemolens makes the experience even more noteworthy: the kids get to drive around the world famous circuit in Zandvoort in a Ferrari, McLaren, Aston Martin, Porsche, Mercedes-AMG or Lamborghini. How cool is that?
First, the boys and girls will receive an extensive instruction. Then, under the watchful eyes of professional instructors, they get to explore the world-renowned circuit in their own cars (well, their parents!). Also, there will be special instruction cars with dual controls which you can reserve.
Drive your dream car!
This is an absolute first in the Netherlands: at Race Planet youngsters can drive a Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche or Lamborghini. Under the auspices of an instructor, of course. And the speed limit of 60 km/h that is applied with rookie driving, remains unchanged. Nevertheless, the kids are in for an exhilarating experience!
During this unique experience, Circuit Zandvoort applies a rule that is not normally applied: the speed limit. While driving on the circuit, we apply a speed limit of 60 km/h. Sebastiaan Bleekemolen explains: “this speed limit is crucial. We aim to let kids make their first acquaintance with driving. Even though we are on a circuit, rookie driving is not a race course.”
