Junior Ferrari Driving Thrill with Passenger Ride
Close but no cigar
Arrived at the Everyman centre, Prestwold Hall in anticipation of a good well organised experience for my sons 13th birthday. There was my son, friends and family who joined for the experience.
The requirement to be there an hour before was not required because all you need to do is sign an indemnity form and confirm your booking with one of the team. The drivers briefing is 5 minutes and very informal.
After that there is no indication of the actual time when you will drive so everyone just hovers about.
The drive was good but the wait was unacceptably long and wholly unnecessary.
Also be aware that for a 2 hour wait there are no facilities to get a drink or snack, so best to take yours with you.

16th birthday present
Considering I don't have a licence yet this was brilliant . My choice of Ferrari was brilliant and the instructor was great all around my 6 laps . Instructions are clear and any non driver can do it

My son (13) loved this experience - it was well run, good fun and exactly as described. We went to the Bruntingthorpe venue and everything was simply superb. Great day, great experience, great staff - thank you!

My son absolutely loved his day. It was pouring from the heavens and he still had a smile on his face the full time. It was very well organised and he even got to do half his laps in an aston martin at no extra coat. Would recommend this to anyone!

Bought as a gift for our 14yr old son. Firstly I must say my son absolutely loved the driving experience. He enjoyed being in control of the sports car and driving up to 80 miles per hour. My husband & I were a little disappointed as the experience was very rushed, there was no laps around a course, it was up & down a road, so we didn't have a good view of him driving. We couldn't take photos of him with the car. £25 - £35 for a photo.

My daughter took part in the ferrari driving experience at Elvington, York. We were very impressed, the instructor was fabulous, it was well organised and my daughter has had an amazing first driving lesson...in a Ferrari...shame she can't have one!

Great drive for juniors.
This gift was for my grandson Will & he enjoyed it one hundred percent. He is 13 and was dead chuffed at being able to drive a REAL Ferrari!! He loved the conrol he was able to get in a beautiful car, he loved the speed he could do on the circuit and the cornering. In fact everything about the drive, he just wished he could have had longer!! The instructor was a very pleasant man & said he proved to be a really good young driver. Now Will wants to do it all again!! A well worth gift totally.

Fun, but not quite what it says on the tin
Having bought the junior ferarri experience(Kenilworth) for my 16 year old son, whilst he loved the 10 minutes spent driving the car and can't wait for another go, the day was disappointing and the organisation & service was poor. There was no briefing session (which helps to build the excitement) and no fast lap driven by the instructor (as suggested on the website). Also, I was unable to view and pay for a photo without waiting until the very end of the junior day so had to leave without one and am now having to speak with photo company about trying to view a photo before buying.

My Sons First Driving Experience
My husband and I bought the Ferrari Junior Driving Experience for our son for Christmas. He is only 14 years old and this was his first experience of driving. The day was brilliant and ver well organised. From arrival to leaving we were guided what to do. My son got to get straight into the driving seat of his favourite car and take it 4 times around a lap, including a high speed straight run. Unfortunately the weather wasnt on our side so the photographer was unable to get a photograph while my son was doing his lap. She took the time to come over and explain this to us and waited for the weather to pass, then she took my son back and made sure he had pictures to remember his big day. It was a brilliant day and very well organise and I would like to say a big THANK YOU to 6th Gear.
