The Ferrari is one of the world’s most iconic racing machines – and now youngsters can take them for a spin without even passing their driving test. If your child fancies them self as a bit of a petrol head, a ride round a top UK circuit is sure to have them smiling from ear to ear, plus cheering them on from the side lines is almost as fun as driving the actual car, right? Plus you’ll get 6.5% back for your kids’ savings when buying the experience through KidStart.
