YOUNG people will get their first taste of driving when they get behind the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz at the home of British motorsport next month.

Mercedes-Benz is giving 100 young people the chance to test drive its brand new Driving Experience centre at Silverstone Circuit on Sunday, May 6. The competition is open to anyone under 17-year-old, and over 1.5 metres tall.

Using a special circuit, incorporating the famous but defunct Bridge Corner, teenagers will be shown the driving basics such as pulling away at junctions, steering through corners and roundabouts, braking, and reversing, all while in the safe hands of a professional instructor from the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy.

Entry is free, visit or call 0870 4004000.
