I really enjoyed the experience and all was well organised to deal with Covid. Just a shame I was so slow round the track!

If you enjoy driving flat out, in a powerful car then you’ll enjoy this experience. If you prefer something challenging then look elsewhere.

Location was clearly sign posted immediately upon exiting the motorway. Big car park with lots of signs to the car park and registration. Tonnes of opportunities to book extra experiences once there. Demo lap was helpful. Instructors were great and chatty. The track itself has a good mix of fast straights and tight corners giving you a chance to check out the power and handling of your vehicle. The voucher is very easy to use with minimal scrutiny. You won't be filling out form after form or evidencing till they cows come home. It's a fast process, not as fast as you'll be though whizzing round that tarmac!

Really enjoyable day
28 September 2019
I was initially apprehensive about the day as I have never had the chance to drive a car with paddle gear shifts before. The location was a little tricky to find. Once there, the staff were very friendly and put me at ease. The weather had been horrendously wet that morning so I was surprised that the drive still went ahead. The instructor in the Aston Martin was excellent. He gave me the confidence that I needed to really feel what the car can do. The paddle shift that I was worried about was really easy to use. As my gift was only for the Aston Martin I thought it was a real shame that I couldn’t have experienced the high speed lap in that vehicle. It would have been more interesting to see how the instructor handled the vehicle round the track. Otherwise it was an excellent day and I have been recommending it to friends and work mates.
