I purchased this racing experience for my husband and it was far better than we could imagine and got alot more for the money than we ever thought would take place on the day!! I think the racing was about 2 hours long including the briefings but we didnt realise how involved the teaching would be from the instrutors themselves it was one on one and this was fantastic, and to top the day off at the end the proffesional racing drivers take you out in the M3 BMW and take you round the track at a very fast pace!! All the friends that came along for the day are wanting to do this as a day out also as it was so good, and I am also going to do it for my next birthday present as my Husband wants me to experience the day from the driving seat!! Would highly recommend if you like speed and cars!!!

I had a fantastic morning at Brands Hatch. I got to experience the thrills of driving around one of the UK's best race tracks in 2 different cars. Firstly in a turbo-charged Megane Sport with an instructor that taught me how to drive the race line and really encouraged me to throw the car around! Then it was into the single seater on my own and once I got used to the car it was 10 laps of sheer exhilaration. Then as a bonus I had a couple of laps as a passenger in a race prepared Megane Sport with a professional driver to show you how its really done and boy did I have to hold on tight! A fantastic adrenaline packed morning!

I got this as a birthday present and it really does make a great gift. The cars were all great and the instructors were also very good. I have actually been before but I found it so enjoyable that I wanted to go again. I hope to do it again for my birthday next year!

I had an excellent day. The instructors were all very good and the speed of the cars was amazing. I think I will be trying a Ferrari next.
