Junior Supercar Driving Thrill with Passenger Ride
I took our 14 year old son on a junior supercharge experience. I was a little sceptical about what he would be allowed to do without a driving licence but my best hopes were exceeded. He had a fantastic car to drive - Lamborghini Spyder soft top - and a thrilling speed lap. I was so pleased for him. It was a brilliant experience and he didn't stop grinning all day. I am now officially the best Dad in the world.

My 12 Year Old Loved It
What a fantastic experience!! The staff were friendly & helpful, the instructor was really clear and my son couldn't stop smiling from us driving into the car park until late into the night afterwards.
He got to drive the orange convertible Lamborghini Gallardo for 10 full minutes, overtaking Ferrari's (even lapping 2 of them).
My son had never driven anything before but was well briefed beforehand so he was prepared for the "unrestricted thrill from 400+bhp".
His only worry were the gears (we assumed the cars were automatic but the car had paddle shift - the instructor is really helpful though giving guidance when to shift up/down)
All in all, my son had a great day and so did the family who watched him. A fab experience for all.
Note - The video which we paid extra for didn't work properly (the speedo wasn't connected and the forward facing camera had slipped sideways after a few laps). The staff were apologetic and despite saying beforehand that they couldn't guarantee the video, they were still happy to provide a free photograph to compensate.
I'd strongly recommend this experience to all and have already done so to my friends/family.

For anyone with a Top Gear mad petrol head son like mine this is the perfect gift. The day was incredibly well organised from beginning to end and it gives youngsters the change to put their foot down and enjoy the ride. I cannot speak highly enough of the staff and organisers who made this day so special. My son will remember it for ever. My only criticism and it is a tiny one, is that the photo package should include a picture of the driver leaning up against the car. The pictures were all of my son in the car, taken through the windscreen and they were expensive for what they were. Apart from that I cannot think of a single thing to critisise. If you are thinking of buying this - do not hesitate!!!! Wonderful!
