Wild passion versus refined elegance. It’s a quandary that many have faced, should they go with the sheer brute power of a Ferrari or should they choose the style and sophistication of the Aston Martin? With this package you don’t need to make that decision as you get to enjoy both. Two of the world’s hottest cars just waiting for you to hop in and take them for a spin around the track. The perfect day out for a real driving enthusiast, these cars are the ultimate in motoring achievement. Get a full briefing from a highly trained instructor and then pilot a Ferrari 360/355 for 3 miles around the track. Swap the rawness of the Italian Stallion for something a little more refined by then hopping into the cockpit of the Aston Martin before putting it through its paces for another 3 mile drive. If you undertake the experience at either Kenilworth or Prestwold, you will also get the opportunity of an amazing off-road passenger ride. At the end of your day receive a certificate to celebrate the time you sampled the best of both Italian and English motor engineering!

Verve Revival Great reception from the Mithril folks at Goodwood and their smiles and enthusiasm boded well for a happy experience ahead. Got to admit that my years rolled back when the anticipation of a youngster returned with the eagerness for my turn to climb into the Ferrari 308. The big moment came and I carefully fitted myself into the driver's seat while the instructor provided me a well-structured briefing of the car and track, with emphasis on the main safety points. A quick aside....couldn't see a radio in the car, no aircon, where was the GPS and what was that clutch peddle? Oh well, here goes. Thinks...whatever I do, I must not stall the car in front of the onlookers (VERY embarrassing) and remember the instructor's briefing , do NOT move the gear-stick vertically from first to reverse as it could be detrimental to the health of the car (VERY expensive). The circuits of Goodwood were a blur of concentration and enjoyment. Must say, the instructor's positive guidance, with a the occasional higher pitched screams, worked wonders and, by the third lap, I believe that I was starting to use the markers around the circuit to optimize the turns in a car that cried out to be driven. Of course, I am convinced that I came close to the track record and a furtive glance at the speedo seemed to indicate reaching 160mph ......or was it 60mph? Whatever, it did not matter as I was flushed with long-lost excitement . Encouragingly, the instructor seemed excited too but in a different way.....quite emotional, drained face and even his knuckles looked pasty white. I must have impressed him! Bad points of the experience? They did not gift-wrap the car for me at the end of my drive. And so it was back to home for me, in my somewhat more sedate automatic car, and a wait for Ferrari's letter of invitation for me to join their Formula 1 driving team! 22 June 2014

Fab experience We booked this with a friend to drive the Ferrari & Aston Martin at Mintex near Sherburn. The weather was good but as soon as we started our drives the heavens opened. A great experience, friendly helpful staff & so well organised even in the wet weather & would recommend it to anyone 08 June 2014
Best birthday present in 56 years! Really friendly people, professional and well organized. I wasn't rushed and had plenty of time to see what else was going on. Very good instructors and an excellent day out. I would recommended this for anyone who likes fast cars! 06 June 2014
