Brrrrrrrrrrm!!! Some of the most fun I've ever had!!! I have spent many weekends at Silverstone circuit during race meetings, but I've never driven round it; I've only ever watch others have that fun! My day started with signing in to the 'Experience Centre" in the middle of the circuit... You can see 'The International Wing' when you park up, which is super exciting to see especially as it's where the F1 cars live during the Grand Prix. You are then required to attend a driver's briefing which you learn about braking, turning and accelerating points. This had my head spinning a bit, but hoped it'd make more sense behind the wheel. After the briefing you walk a small distance to the waiting area. This is where the instructors fit a helmet for you whilst you admire the beautiful supercars lined up on the tarmac. I was introduced to my instructor and lead to the gorgeous Aston I was going to drive. After squeezing in, I unceremoniously plonked myself in the low sports car and was started to be strapped in. Jamie talked me through my hand position, the peddles, gear shift and how to start the beautiful beast. Before I knew it I was in control and driving onto the historic race circuit!!! After 5 laps of familiarisation and being told to not be so eager on the throttle, I then had 4 laps "at speed". It was over so fast. I still don't think I could tell you the corners I drove round. I was surprised on how late to brake and how much you revved the car before shifting gear. It's NOTING like how you drive a car on a standard road. For any wannabe racers, I dare you to give it a go. You won't be disappointed!!! 22 April 2014
Brilliant Birthday Present Bought this gift for my boyfriend for a "special" birthday, ie turning 40. He got to drive his favourite car, an Aston Martin around Silverstone and loved every minut of it. The Staff were helpful and the session was well organised. As a spectator I was comfortable and facilities were nice. Worth the money. 27 March 2014
Bond/Button for a day The whole experience from start to finish was fabulous! The instruction was excellent. If your like me, you sort of think you have an idea of what the racing lines will be. The instructors hone what you already know and give you confidence to carry more speed into the bends and keep it for the exit. You wont stop smiling for days afterwards. On the lower portion of the track, you'll take in Stowe, Club, Abbey, the start/finish and the hanger straights. Well worth it 16 December 2013
