This is an experience quite unique !

You stay with David & Judy in their one guest bedroom, four star, Bed & Breakfast home.
A 'walk through' video of your private space is available to view here.
As an example, you and your partner/friend/spouse will travel with David to most qualifying or race day sessions during your stay.
