Single Seater Driving Thrill at Silverstone
Single seater thrill
I was nervous before my ride,but once i got into the car adrenalin took over.Once i got used to the gears ,i could increase my speed.Twenty minutes going round the track went quickly,loved every minute of it.We all got faster and faster ,any longer than 20 minutes us drivers may take to many risks as our confidences increased.
Recommend the experience to anyone,worth the money.

Experience of a lifetime!
Single seater thrill ride through BuyAGift.com.
I was given this as a Christmas present and i booked it a few months on when i had some time available. Having spoken to some friends i was given the impression it would be a shared ride with an instructor. However when i arrived at Silverstone we were told we were to drive an f1 car on our own and if that was exciting enough this was to be raced against 12 other drivers!
Upon arrival the area was easy to locate and the staff were helpful. There was a short que to hand the voucher over and everything was on schedule.
The short briefing was useful and was explained to us in an easy to understand manner (not boring but very useful). We then proceeded to the track and got prepared in the cars.
The cars were fantastic and the controls were simple to use, although the gears appeared a little stiff at first. Setting off was a little tricky for first timers such as myself, but as soon as id cracked it i was off in a flash.
The engine noise was load, the car is fast and the feel of being only a couple of inches from the ground was exhillerating.
After a few prelaps to get used to the track, the safety cars left us to it to race as fast as we liked. Whilst some people enjoyed a steady ride, some of us (including myself) spead up, tonking round the track as fast as fast as we could. I managed to overtake 5 people and i felt i was really getting the most out of the experience as did my family who were observing from the roof of the building next to track (almost as excited as me apparantly!).
Safety wise; i felt very safe and secure as all safety measures were in place, though this certainly didnt cramp the experience.
At the end of the race i noticed some of the drivers had a usb stick with them which i later found out was for the in-built cameras on each car (forward and rear facing). It was possible to purchase photos or the usb video of the entire race. Had i have realised beforehand that this was possible i would have paid for the usb video, unfortunately it was too late though. So if you are doing this experience and want a video, ensure you go to the media counter first.
The memorys will last forever and i will deffinately be doing this again soon, perhaps even taking some friends with me to compete against.
