Typically reserved for private events held by the rich and famous, want2race are offering you the chance to get exclusive, behind closed doors access to the luxury Ascari Race Resort. Available individually and as part of our Iberia ‘Tres’ of the Best package, this premium track day is set against the picturesque mountains of southern Spain and is the longest circuit in the country. Not only will you have access to a variety of cars, courtesy of want2race, but you will also be able to sample a selection of different tracks around the circuit.
Address: Circuito Ascari, Carretera de Campillos (A-367), Km. 30,5, 29400 Ronda, Málaga, Spain
Circuit type: Permanent road course
The main Ascari race track itself is 5.5km (approx. 3.4 miles) long, runs at a noise level of 102dB and features 26 corners all of varying difficulty. The capacity for Ascari is up to 40 cars, although we aim for as fewer cars as possible in order to enhance the overall experience, and you will receive first-class instruction throughout to ensure you put in the best laps you can. Recreating some of motorsport’s most iconic turns, such as Spa’s Eau Rouge, the Karussell at the Nürburgring and the infamous ‘Corkscrew’ at Laguna Seca, Ascari is one of the most unique racks in the world and the track day comes with unparalleled hospitality from the resort itself.
You also have the chance to sample a variety of other circuits too, including buggy, skidpad, karting and 4x4 tracks, with available cars adjusting accordingly.
A truly one-of-a-kind experience, W2R Track Days at Ascari are among some of our most premium options. Ideal for individuals, small groups and as part of a luxury holiday, this is a highly bespoke package that aims to provide you with a varied driving experience, attentive service and as much track time as possible. The track is built to the highest standard, with a semi-draining asphalt surface and offering both challenging corners, as well as more sweeping scenic sections – perfect for taking in the beautiful surroundings.
The 2020 W2R Ascari Track Day is on the 23rd of September and is the first stop on the Iberia Trip: Day 2 takes us to Portimao and Day 3 finishes in Jerez. Whilst you can purchase Day 1 at Ascari as a standalone track day, the 3-day Iberian package is well worth considering and available at a special early bird rate.
Ascari offers an open pit lane track day and access to a variety of the resort’s wider facilities. Once again, a low driver capacity means drivers can enjoy a well-run track day with minimal stoppages, no queuing and, therefore, maximum time enjoying the circuit.
The Ascari Race Resort typically offers the option to purchase half-day experiences, allowing customers to choose between the morning or afternoon session. However, with want2race, you have access to the track for the full day as part of the set price, as well as the standard instruction and briefing time listed under Drive Days.
The Ascari Race Resort is located near Ronda, Málaga, in the Andalucía region of Spain. Naturally, the nearest airport is Málaga Airport, approximately 54 miles (86.5km) from the circuit, which should take around 1h 10 mins by car. Alternatively, you could fly to Jerez de la Frontera Airport, which is around 1h 30 mins away and lastly, Gibraltar is around a 1h 45 mins drive.
By road from Málaga Airport, the circuit can be reached by heading west and then north-west on the A-357, before turning off after around 90kms onto A-367, signposted for Ronda. The circuit comes a few kilometres after the village of Cuevas del Becerro.
Given that the track is set amongst the mountains, many clients choose to arrive by helicopter. The coordinates for the heliport are: 36º 49’ 29’’ N / 5º 4’ 54’’ W 36.824811, -5.081630
Should you be wanting to bring your own car, we have specialist transport, storage and car preparation services that take your vehicle from our prestigious Donington Park base to your chosen track – just speak to our team for more information.
Whilst Ascari is a well-known name in the world of motorsport, you might be surprised to know that its history is a relatively short one. Although the brand itself is named after Italian racing legend, Alberto Ascari, the first ever double Formula 1 World Champion, the Banbury-based company was only founded in 1995 by Klaas Zwaart: entrepreneur turned racer who competed in various tournaments around Europe. Releasing its first car, the Ascari Ecosse, in 1998, the company went on to produce less than 10 different commercial and race cars and seized manufacturing in 2010. However, it’s thanks to Zwaart’s very specific vision that the name lives on.
In 2000, Zwaart set out to build the world’s first ‘race resort’, designed to provide owners of race cars and other high-performance automobiles a purpose-built venue to drive them to their full potential. Opening in 2002, Zwaart’s vision was complete and the Ascari racetrack was built, encompassing all the best parts of circuits from across Europe and around the world. Among its total 26 turns, the orientation is split right down the middle, with Zwaart commissioning 13 left-hand turns and 13 right-hand turns to create a well-balanced track that moved with the contours of the mountains landscape it was built on.
Zwaart’s racing background meant that not only did he want people to have a place where they could drive and store their supercars, but he also wanted them to be able to properly test them. Sitting at various different points of elevation and designed for plenty of camber changes, there are certain sections of the track where it possible to send your vehicle airborne. So, whilst the manufacturer itself is now defunct, the Ascari brand lives in, with the resort playing host to the luxury car owners/manufacturers for close to two decades now.
You’ll struggle to find a more luxury track day experience than at Ascari Race Resort, nor in such a beautiful location either. Keep in mind that there are only a limited amount of spaces, so book early if you want to secure your place on this amazing track day.
