Supercar roulette
Cost: 79
Where: www.silverstone.co.uk

Three hi-octane supercar bullets await the voucher holder, but which one will they fire from the pits to blast around three laps of the iconic Silverstone racing circuit? All will be revealed on the day of the experience, when they'll discover if they're driving an Aston Martin V8 Vantage, one of Silverstone's Ferrari fleet, or the awesome Nissan GT-R. A fully loaded experience, there are no blanks in this game of roulette.

Check the website for driver and licence requirements before booking.
