Great experience This was a really valuable, informative and entertaining experience. I was worried that this would be a lot of classroom theory but you go straight out in the car and after a demonstration, take turns to drive. It was fun, and I learned from the experience Anybody driving, young or old, should do this experience. I wishi had years ago as I wouldn't have skidded into a wall at embarrassingly slow speed!! 20 September 2013
A Real Buzz What a wonderful surprise! I purchased this thinking that the driving experience was merely to better ones driving.. But it was in actual fact an amazing amount of fun. The instructor most certainly could not be faulted. I would definately do this again... 01 May 2012
Good opportunity to learn a new skill - controlling a car in a skid. Competent instructors and an informative scoring sheet at the end 08 June 2014
Beware the Waiver! Tuition and experience, with one exception on the latter, is totally first class. That exception being that there's a hidden sting in the tail for the happy recipient of a lovely gift. To be greeted with "you'll be responsible for the first £1500 of any damage unless you pay our £20 waiver" leaves you wondering why it's not included in the price. I paid £20 (despite my booking form saying £10) and said I'd give appropriate comment on this forum - I was curtly told by the receptionist that "it won't change anything" - well, yes it will, I won't be going to Silverstone again! More disappointing, other attendees had been advised by another receptionist that they'd never had an incident and it wasn't worth paying for the waiver. 01 June 2014
