Great Experience Arrived at the site (goodwood) which was well signposted and easy to find. The reception area was right in the pits with many people milling around waiting for their respective experiences. Reception staff were friendly and made you feel welcome. On to the experience... We were taken out for a couple of instructor driven laps; the instructor was knowlegable and calming and gave good precise advice on how to get the most from the car and track. Then you are given the driving seat where the instructor gives some final tips on driving lines, braking points and safe overtakes. Driving round in the Alfa was great fun, but what came next was epic! We were taken through to get our race suits on, were given a clean balaclava, gloves and a helmet. Once comfortably strapped in the car an instructor gives some final instructions on the dash and gears, and then you're off on your own... Slowly navigating the pit lane, a quick look in the mirror, tracks clear... Floor it! 5000rpm, bang gear 2, whoa this is good. 5000rpm, bang gear 3, I'm in love. Up into 4th, both hands on the wheel, it's on. Lap 1: feels quick. Although you kinda know you can go faster, but no heroics here Lap 2: that's better. More apexes hit, but are these brakes working? Lap 3: quicker again. And yes, when approaching the corner at full speed, the brakes are perfect. Lap 4: flat out. I am an F1 driver! Hamilton eat your heart out! And then it was over. Can't wait to do it again! What an afternoon! 21 June 2014
single seat driving experience I chose to take the experience at the good wood race circuit with Mithril racing. Arrived there to a very warm welcome. Didn't have to wait long before I was taken out for a practice run with an instructor in an lovely Alfa Romeo. He drove 2 laps showing me the breaking points, Then I did 2 laps. The Alfa was a fast car. Back to the pits after and got handed over to Charlie, who suited me up and ran through instructions. Then I was away on my own. 4 laps of the wonderful Good wood circuit. It was wonderful and 4 laps went very quickly. The team there was absolutely amazing, very friendly. I took my wife and kids with me and also had the chance to sit in super cars and take photos. A truly great experience 12 April 2014
Best day ever Fantastic fun day. I've done other track days/experiences in the past but this was the best by far. Goodwood is a fantastic circuit and the Mithrill staff were excellent too. Couldn't recommend highly enough - I'd love to go again. 27 March 2014
Adrenalin rush Before coming along, I was urged by my friends to take in a sugar dose in order to deal with the adrelalin rush that I would feel with this experience. I ate some chocolate on the way. The experience was terrific, all that I had hoped for. The staff were really friendly and helpful, especially in helping to 'wedge me' into the single seater. And wow! what a ride. I never thought that I would ever drive a car that would overtake a Lamborghini or a Ferrari, but I did. A great experience, lots of Adrenalin. I will be back ! Chalky. 21 March 2014
