LOT 1: A Porsche Centre Drive Experience for 2 people
Based at the world famous Silverstone circuit, on the original site of the 1998 WRC Rally of Great Britain special stage, the 3.1km track can be split into separate areas offering a variety of configurations and surface conditions. You and your guest will be personally coached by one of the Porsche Driving Consultants, and able to choose one of the following vehicles for your experience:
Boxter | Cayman 911 | Carrera | Cayenne | Panamera | Macan
Before commencing your 90-minute driving experience, you will choose exactly which areas of the tracks you wish to drive on. One-to-one instruction means your Porsche Driving Consultant will truly tailor the training to the driver, making each participant’s experience very much their own. You could for example explore the technical systems of the Cayenne in the Off-Road area, which features 45 percent inclines and tough terrain that would challenge even the most focused 4×4 driver. Similarly, the Ice Hill, with its computer-controlled water jets and low friction surface, provides the perfect environment to challenge and explore the remarkable versatility and handling performance of the entire Porsche range, including the 911 and new Macan.
The latest addition to the Porsche track is the straights, designed to test the acceleration and stopping capabilities of the cars, while also providing a suitable area to experiment with various Porsche systems including Launch Control, Porsche Composite Ceramic Brakes and Lane Change Assist. Now choose your partner in crime for this experience and tap into your inner racing driver!

Upon landing, a short car journey will take you to your table at TV chef Rick Stein’s ‘The Seafood Restaurant’ where you will enjoy a delicious meal for 4 including a bottle of house wine. Established in 1975, Rick has this to say about his and wife Jill’s restaurant “I’ve never thought of our restaurants as temples of gastronomy, they’re just places where the fish is fresh and exhilarating and the atmosphere is alive and full of fun. The way we cook and the relaxed way the staff look after you in the restaurants is our idea of what seaside holidays in a very pretty fishing port on the North Cornish coast are all about.”
Inspiration for the menu has developed from Rick’s vast travels over the years, and you can expect to see dishes such as fresh oysters, langoustines, mussels, turbot, dover sole, lobsters and sashimi. Plus dishes from Goa, Thailand, Bali and France. Head chef is Stephane Delourme. Please note that the restaurant will be closed between Monday 5th – 12th January 2015. You will take home with you a signed Rick Stein cookbook as a memento of your day. Your table awaits…….!

Having been commissioned in 2013 to create an entire range of pieces for Royal Doulton, he is certainly going to be a household name.
