PalmerSport Formula Programme



PalmerSport Formula is our morning-based half day programme for corporate groups, private groups and individuals that includes superb hospitality and driving time in some of our most thrilling cars, but without the need to take a full day out of the office.

The programme runs from 8am to 1pm and includes a full English or continental breakfast, a two course table-served lunch and an awards presentation. All activities are timed, with the exception of the Caterham Pursuit, with trophies awarded to the best performers.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does the catering include?

    Your event starts with a full English and continental breakfast followed by a table-served, two course lunch. There are also complimentary refreshments available throughout your event in all our Trackside Suites.

  • Who will look after my event?

    In the run up to your event, you will have a dedicated Event Co-ordinator who will be on hand to answer any queries you may have and to guide you through the varying aspects of your event. On the day itself, you will be looked after by one of our PalmerSport Team Leaders who will ensure that your day runs like clockwork, leaving you to relax and enjoy your time with us from beginning to end.

  • What time should I arrive?

    We ask that you arrive at 07:45 for our Full Day and Formula events, 11:45 for the GT event and 16:00 for the Evening event.

  • Where do I go when I arrive?

    Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a member of PalmerSport staff at the entrance gates. They will direct you to the relevant Hospitality Centre for your event and its designated parking area.

  • What should I wear?

    We recommend that you wear comfortable clothing such as jeans, a t-shirt and jumper, along with slim fitting shoes. Shorts and high heels are not permitted and you will be asked to wear our overalls or plimsolls should you arrive in either. Wide, heavy soled boots or shoes are not recommended. Of course if you have your own race suit, gloves or boots, please do feel free to wear these.

  • Can I bring my own helmet?

    Where required, we provide helmets for all activities. Our helmets are fitted with an intercom system to allow constant communication with your PalmerSport Instructor. As a result, if you do wish to bring your own helmet, you may only wear this in the single-seater vehicles.

  • I’m outside your height and weight guidelines; can I still attend?

    We try our very best to accommodate all guests outside of our height and weight guidelines of 18 stone (115KG) and 5' - 6' 4" (153 cm - 193 cm). If you fall outside these measurements, please contact us so that we can advise further.

  • Can I bring spectators?

    Driving at Bedford Autodrome is like no other track experience; there are no barriers or grandstands. As such, whilst there are a few viewing areas for watching the action on circuit, spaces are limited. We can accommodate a small number of spectators at an additional charge; please contact us for details.

  • Can I use my company branding?

    Whilst our Shared events do not include any branding opportunities, our Exclusive events offer many options as standard. These include having your logo displayed on your PDF invitation brochure, on our TV screens in your exclusive Hospitality Centre, printed on the certificates that we provide to each guest and also included on the trophies presented to the winning drivers. For Exclusive bookings of two teams or more, we can normally include your chosen branding on the cars themselves. In addition, should you have any pop-up banners, flags or other branded material that you would like to use, it may be possible to accommodate this. Please contact us for further details.

  • Are the Instructors trained to deal with nervous drivers?

    Yes - rest assured that our Instructors quickly establish a rapport with you to understand your level of experience and confidence. No matter what level you start the day at, our Instructors' encouragement and coaching will allow you to gain maximum satisfaction and enjoyment from your time in our cars, no matter how nervous you are!

  • What happens if it is raining?

    In reality, there are very few days that are affected by poor weather conditions. Our event is designed to be totally weather proof, with heated Trackside Suites alongside each of our circuits and full wet weather clothing to keep you warm and dry when in the open cockpit cars.

  • Can I bring a camera?

    You are very welcome to bring a camera or GoPro to your event, however due to our safety requirements, you will not be allowed to use these when you are inside the vehicles, nor can GoPros be mounted to the cars themselves.
