Drive our cars with no string attached

We understands that not everyone knows their way around a racetrack or has had limited time if any behind the wheel of a real race car. So, whether your competing in our program and want some practice or you just want to get out on track in a proper race car with a professional instructor, we can give you that chance to perfect your skills and see what it’s all about in a safe and fun environment at a fraction of the cost of competing in our program normally.

"Driving an actual V8 Supercar and experiencing what my heroes race was something I never thought I would get to do. The car was everything I expected and more. 650hp, sequential gearbox, massive brakes and great handling. ADS is the real deal, if you want to actually experience driving proper race cars you can’t go past it."

-Nick Mitic - WA ADS Competitor 2018

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What Licence Do I Need?

To compete in Aussie Driver Search you do not need a civil drivers licence however you do require a CAMS L2S Licence or higher. This licence is very easy to obtain and can be done online or in the morning of the event if you do not currently hold one.

What safety gear do I need?

Neck to ankle clothing and enclosed shoes are all that are required to compete in Aussie Driver Search. If you have proper racing gear you are more than welcome to use it. We supply helmets with Stilo intercoms so that you can speak to your judge

What happens if I damage a car?

We feel our biggest insurance policy is the instructors who will be judging each competitor however Aussie Driver Search has insurance available to all competitors which will cover you in the unlikely event of an incident. This dramatically reduces the financial risk involved with entering the competition.

What experience do I need?

The Pro Competition is aimed at drivers who already have car racing experience at a state or national level. However some people enter the Pro Comp purely for the experience of driving a real V8 Supercar.

Am I being judged?

In our normal competition sessions, the expert judge is a highly experienced racing driver sitting next to you whilst you drive our cars on track. Although they won't be judging your driving they are monitoring everything you do and are there to keep you safe and ensure you get the best out of the car and yourself.

Are their age limits?

The minimum age to compete is 16 years old unless the driver has a CAMS Provisional Circuit Licence or higher. There is no maximum age as long as you are fit to drive a motor vehicle.
