It’s time to experience the drive of your life with this intense single seater thrill ride. For anyone who has dreamed of being an F1 driver, this is the closest you can get without signing for McLaren!

Then it’s your time to shine on a solo high speed drive in the single seater race car. Put what the instructor has taught you into practise as you aim for the fastest lap you can. You should allow for two hours for your experience.

Great instruction and terrific fun

5 out of 5 03 October 2015
Location: Southampton Age: 45-54 Bought For Friend Occasion: Birthday
The instruction in the Alpha Romeo was clear and helpful. It was well organised - the only drawback was that there were a lot of other cars on track which I can understand The organisers looking to max the track time but a bit too busy in my view. The single seat cars are quick enough to get an idea of the speed and skills needed to drive such a car. Weather was fantastic which definitely helped.
What would you improve for next time? Could consider Go Pro type cameras on the helmet to record the track time

Location: Chichester, West Sussex Age: 25-34 Bought For Brother Occasion: Birthday
The single seater experience was amazing. The booking process was very easy. The tuition was great and a lot of fun. There was no pressure and it was all very relaxed and made for a good morning. This is definetly one of the most ultimate thrills and the cars were very quick and being on your own let loose on the track was a great experience.

Awesome Christmas present

5 out of 5 15 July 2015
Location: Brighton, East sussex Age: 25-34 Bought For Wife Occasion: Christmas
The staff were very friendly and very helpful and the day itself was amazing. I drove the single seater around the goodwood circuit. You could really get some speed up around this circuit. It was amazing. The day started in an Alfa Romeo to learn the racing lines and get used to the track and then I was let loose in the single seater for 4 laps. The first lap as a bit slow, but the other 3 were amazing. I will definitely be doing this again very soon
What would you improve for next time? More laps!!

A really good, well-organised single seater racing experience at Goodwood. Just about got up to a ton on the back straight, but it felt a lot faster being so close to the ground! 4 laps of cool driving experience. Recommended!
What would you improve for next time? More laps ... and not being told to slow down!

Great Experience

5 out of 5 21 June 2014
Location: Southampton Age: 25-34 Bought For Wife Occasion: Birthday
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!

single seat driving experience

5 out of 5 12 April 2014
Location: London Age: 45-54 Bought For Colleague Occasion: Birthday
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
What would you improve for next time? Need at least 10 laps of

Location: Brighton Age: 45-54 Bought For Partner Occasion: Christmas
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.

Adrenalin rush

5 out of 5 21 March 2014
Location: Cranleigh, Surrey Age: Over 65 Bought For Colleague Occasion: Christmas
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.
