Rained off!
16 March 2020
When we arrived at Silverstone it was fab! We were ushered to the right place by all the parking marshals. It was all very organised! We went to the booking desk and let them know we were here and they gave us some instructions to listen out for. We were directed out to the track where it had started to rain. My fiance got into the car and he was told to follow the safety car around for a few laps before they made the decision to cancel the session because it wasn't safe enough. We were given the option to either wait around until the skies cleared a bit or ring up within 2 weeks to rebook for within 3 months. We were quite happy that they had done that for us! Great customer service!

My drive was sensational and enjoyed every second, we had two drives my nephew one wasn’t as good as was instructed by a different instructor and kept it auto and the ranes on not such a thrill. On the whole great day.

A little disappointed...
23 October 2019
Im a motorsport fan and this was a birthday gift. I also wanted to book a couple of longer experiences and do them all in a set order over a weekend. This was not possible until February 2020! Anyway i did the single seater experience and it left a bit to be desired. The team who strap you into the cars are quite rude. They shout and treat you like an inconvenience. I get that they need to keep things moving as they have sessions one after the other but being rude is not how to treat customers. The cars themselves are fast but there are only 2 overtake zones. If you are in a train behind a very slow car then a lot of the experience is ruined as a maximum of 2 cars can pass in one overtake zone and only one in the other. You an do around 13 laps of which 5 is spent pootling around behind slower cars. The track really isnt big enough for a really enjoyable run. All in all a disappointment. I would suggest ditching the single seaters and dobthe ferrari one. That was amazing!

Great taster

I did the Ferrari Thrill at Silverstone, which is one session in the morning. Great buzz and hooked me in! I plan to book the Experience for sure, then possibly a challenge day if I can dig deep enough down the back of the sofa!! Toby the instructor was great, made the experience even better with his superb instruction. The Silverstone team are great too

Overall a great morning out, well worth getting up for. The mini f1 cars are incredibly fast, and you receive a briefing beforehand.
