Four Supercar Driving Thrill - Weekends
Absolutely loved the experience. I chose to drive the Audi R8 Porsche Ferrari and the Aston Martin, all amazing cars. instructors were very friendly. 4 laps each. Wish the track was a bit bigger (lochgelly) as there is only 2 straight points to pick up some speed but overall an excellent experience, would love to do it again.

Great birthday present
Had a great time at Bruntingthorpe - staff really friendly and my 'stig' racing driver passenger was great - the Lamborghini really moves !!

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.

Brilliant Birthday Present!
My Partner bought this for me as a Birthday present. Although the day was really cold, the sun was out and I had a great time! Decided to drive the Porsche - plenty of acceleration and great to drive! There was even the opportunity for my Partner to have a high speed passenger ride in a Lotus Elise. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the track was well equipped with a small club house with refreshments available.
Great day out, would definitely recommend it!

Awesome Gift Experience!
My wife bought this experience for me for completing my Degree in Computer Science. The atmosphere when I arrived was amazing! I only waited a few minutes before my name was called. The experience was more than what I expected and lots of fun. It had rained and was a bit wet and they still went ahead which was great. After the Ferrari experience I went for a High Speed Passenger Lap in a Performance Car, it was a thrill ride that left me speechless! I was a high speed passenger with one of their expert race instructors! Would highly recommend this as I left with a permanent smile on my face!

Arrived within around 5 minutes of the arrival time suggested. No problems at all, signed up within 5 minutes and then got to go on the lap tour pretty much instantly which gave a good overview of the course and how it is meant to be driven,
After my lap tour I waited no more than 5 minutes and got to go on my lap. (There were lots of people around but the service was really efficient!) The lap itself was amazing and really good fun. If you've never driven a super car before (like most people) then I highly recommend giving it a go. The experience is unreal, its amazing what those things can do and how much down force they give!
After driving my laps I then again waited for no time at all before I got to go on the passenger lap. After driving the course myself I came out feeling like a professional. That was blown away when I saw how it was meant to be driven properly. When you're wheel spinning around ferrari's and lambo's in a ford focus RS, meanwhile overtaking 3 cars on a lap you realise just how unprofessional you are!
Non the less, it was an amazing experience and I would 100% recommend to anyone who wants a good adrenaline rush!

Good but a bit short.
The experience was very enjoyable, even with the rain. However as soon as you were starting to get used to the car's you were going in. Furthermore they arranged the track so your never really breaking 100mph. Therefore the charge paid to get rid of the five thousand pound excess was a slight con due to the risk of damaging the car being so slim. The actual time spent driving each car would amount to no more than between 3 and 5 minutes. All in all it was thoroughly enjoyable and put a smile on my face.

Track Day at Kenilworth
Arrived at Kenilworth track and jumped straight onto the Minibus. All of the staff at Kenilworth were very friendly and showed us exactly where to go. My instructor was great at improving my driving techniques and this showed in my personal video. The Lamborghini sound was gooorgeous went i put my foot to the floor.

Perfect gift for driving fanatics!
I bought this gift for my boyfriend for Christmas last year. He finally got round to booking it last month and he loved it!
We went to the Longcross circuit and he drove a Lamborghini. From the moment we arrived, he had a smile on his face and that smile stayed long after we left! It was a nice atmosphere, as there were lots of other people there for their track day too.
My boyfriend was given a demo ride around the track from an instructor so he could see what the course was like and then he had his ride in the Lambo. He was out for about 10-15 minutes and he did 3 laps of the course. He said it was "awesome" and "didn't even blink" because he didn't want to miss anything! After the Lambo experience, he was then taken out in a Focus RS for the high-speed passenger ride which he also loved! A definite success and he wants me to buy him another supercar day for Christmas this year!
