Rookie Driving Experience at Silverstone
This was a Birthday gift to my Grandson who turned 16 in January. He booked for March and from the pictures and video taken by his dad he had a fantastic time.
He was lucky and had an instructor to himself who was obviously very good and made the whole experience something special.
Certainly a day to remember.

Great first driving experience
I bought this gift for my children F 15 and M 13, both really enjoyed the experience to drive a Renault Clio Cup (140mph car - see picture) around a segregated car park. The car was shared within another teenager with about the same experience of driving (none). Instructor was patient and considerate, all had about 25 mins driving time (10 mins intro) then 15 mins slightly more advanced (cone slalom and emergency stop).
Yes you could do this in a closed car park, but not in one of these cars at Silverstone with an independent instructor - overall a great event!

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING DAY OUT!!
Yes it was set out in a carpark in the silverstone site...BUT!!! my son is 14 and never driven a car before in his life!! He felt incredibly lucky to have driven a £30.000 cup car for the first time ever! (i would have my heart in my pants if they allowed them on the circuit!)
was an amazing bonding experience for me and my moody 14yr old!
and was possibly one of the best presents he has ever had from me.
I am now looking for the rookie 2 sessions silverstone offer for his 15th birthday!
amazing learning experience, the instuctors were funny, friendly and very welcoming!
we even stayed after the experience to watch a test drive on the circuit, watching all kinds of sports car do there thing!
YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!

Ideal for younger children - 13-15. My 16 year old enjoyed it but as he will be driving for real very very soon it wasn't as excitable as the others found it. Covered loads of items including reversing, going round roundabouts etc. learnt a lot in the time they had.
