Double Supercar Driving Thrill with High Speed Passenger Ride
Thrilled to bits
I booked this experience for my husband as Christmas gift and we are pleased with our adventure.
You have plenty of time to book a day and we didn't have problems with the dates we chose.
Once there, all staff members were really kind and helpful, and we were promptly called to start the activity.
Our pack included two supercar driving thrills and a high speed passenger ride. My husband chose a Lamborghini Gallardo and a Ferrari 360.
The copilot gave him clear explanations about control, track.. and was giving him tips all throughout the experience, which made it more enjoyable; making the most out of it.
He was so lucky, they even upgrade one of the cars with no extra cost, we don't know the reason, maybe the one we have chosen was not available, but we didn't even ask because we were charmed.
They took several photos and they have really good quality so he could keep a memory of his favorite highlights.
The passenger ride was fine, my husband would have liked to feel the thrill of being on the limit but the car was full and, apparently, others faces showed him that they had enough so, it is impossible to do something to everybody's taste.
I had read from other comments that some people felt that everything was too quick so, I explained my husband in advanced and we were prepared, metalized not to be disappointed, but we weren't.
For us was a perfect experience, my husband was marvelled and excited for weeks.
We will definetly do it again.

Riding round the track when the instructor takes you through everything is so nerve racking and exciting, seeing the cars driving past you so fast. Then when your name gets called out for your turn to drive your chosen car is so exciting. I was worried about going fast at first, but then when you go for it, it's so fun! Once you've finished you just want to go around again and agan, it's dissapointing but you know you're going to be drive by a professional. When you get in the car about to be driven you're still buzzing from your drive, then when you go out it takes yor breath away it's so fast. You go so fast you have to hold on so tight but you know you can trust the driver. It was the most exciting thing I've ever done.

Super Birthday Gift
As I enjoy achieving a good speed when possible, my daughter decided that I would really enjoy being able to put my foot down on a controlled circuit. And I did!!!!
Despite the rain and the fact that I was a bit concerned because I drive an automatic car and would have to drive a manual one - didn't happen, of course, auto or paddle shift options - I thoroughly enjoyed my super car experience in the Ferrari and would be very happy to do it again!!!!

Bought this gift for my hubby, I upgraded before we went to a better lamborghini but my husband said it looked nice from a distance but once he sat in the car he was very unimpressed it was tatty and not what he'd class as a dream car. We feel that the track available was pointless as every corner was a blind corner and we feel we might as well have gone round in any family saloon. In addition we were talked into taking out insurance which was entirely unnecessary and we feel this should have been asked after the demo lap ;(

Ariel Atom Experience - RUBBISH!
I booked my friend a Supercar Driving thrill as a gift, and thought it would be wrong for me not to buy myself one at the same time :) - He drove the Ferrari F430, I chose the Atom. My mate will write a review for the Ferrari and he did enjoy it.
Anyway, my review of the Atom experience! - Frankly it was dull...I drove quicker to the track than I drove the Atom around it, and I would have been happy to have just watched! My instructor was a jobsworth and boring, with little/no passion for the car. And believe this if you will, I was only allowed to use 4th and 5th gear the whole way around the track. - yeah the instructor said I could put my foot down on the straights, but it was so tame and boring - I could have been driving a 1.6 Fiesta around that track quicker! - The Atom itself is an awesome piece of kit, not that I got a chance to experience it! The website said experience the Atom which is capable of 0-60 is a couple of seconds and 150 odd MPH. The car may be capable, but the don't let their customers experience it. I do understand the instructors have to keep it safe, but come on 4th and 5th gear only around a track, what an absolute joke. I have done lots of track days in various cars and on superbikes bikes, but would not waste my time going back to Chobham to sit behind the wheel of an Atom while it is being driven slowly by the back seat driver in the passenger seat.
Worst Experience day ever. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME or money.

Great afternoon at Chobham/Longcross track. Lots of people as it was sunny Bank Holiday but the check in and steps from one part to the other (signing in, familiarisation lap, high speed drive and very high speed passenger ride) were dealt with very efficiently. All staff very helpful and friendly.
I chose the Aerial Atom - amazing quick car, especially when the supercharger kicked in! After three laps I was getting much more confident with the speed but had to come in .......
Two small negs:
I decided to buy the excess extra cover (at £25) in the end rather than risk the standard excess of £5,000 for any damage. Don't think it was necessary in hindsight (but that's the nature of insurance).
Photos were expensive.
Very exciting time overall, very well managed.

Not too bad!
For this experience I decided to get behind the wheel of an Aston Martin, and I have to say it was the best experience getting to be in control of that car!
However, while the description of this experience says that you can drive it for 6 miles or 6 laps, whichever it was, I can certainly say I was not given the full distance stated, I only had 3 or 4 laps round and that certainly would not have amounted to 6 miles as it wasn't a huge track.
I didn't complain about this on the day however, as I understood that they had a lot of people to get out onto the track and they may have been pushed for time. Furthermore, just getting to drive the Aston for the time that I got with it was fun enough... now I need to save my pennies to buy one of my own!
The high speed passenger ride was also really good as you get to experience how a supercar really should be driven. I chose to do it in the Lotus Elise (Had a choice of the Mitsubishi Evo or Lotus Elise - at the Stafford venue) and it was immensely fun!
Overall it is definitely an experience that I would recommend to anyone. However, just try and keep track of how long you've been in the car before they make you come off the track!

gift from partner
It was a good experience as was the first time ive done anything like thatbut ended up disappointed because it was only 2 laps and the track was very short. It took longer driving to the location compared with the time spent there.
