Strap yourself in for a driving experience you’ll never forget with this exhilarating Shelby GT500 ‘Eleanor’ thrill. Undoubtedly the most sought-after of Ford’s glorious Mustang range, this model pays homage to a certain high-speed getaway car named ‘Eleanor’ from the 2000 action heist movie ‘Gone in Sixty Seconds’. Although the same amount of drama as the film can’t be promised with this experience, an expert instructor will ensure you get the most out of this high-powered vehicle, which is an absolute dream to drive. You’ll love hugging the corners and speeding down the straights during six thrilling miles.

Obviously the gift of driving a mustang round a track was great! The fun I had on race day was unbeatable and the service at the venue was super friendly and well organised!

Not worth it......
07 August 2018
Booked the Shelby gt500 experience, only place available was blyton park when came to booking in. Would not recommend taking children to watch parents. As nothing for them to do. Outside has no shelter. We went on the 6th August which was a baking hot day, now I know it's a race track place but do they think people just come on their own?? This is an experience day and it literally Is half a day! Blyton had no cold drinks all was warm! I qued for 35 minutes to be told when i got to the front I needed to fill in a form and to go back out to fill it in and queue for another 40 minutes. Disgraceful. Outside has no shelter from heat or rain for the hundreds of people either spectating or the riders awaiting their ride which itself is a rough 3 hour wait from entering. Then paying the extra £25 waiver....which you shouldn't have to pay on top. DO NOT book the drive around the track so not worth it I wish I'd of paid the same for a fun fast spin around the track which is also done in the same car!!. I will never buy one of these again. Such a shame because the car is beautiful and yes the ride was good but for the cost of the day which totalled £100 mustang gt500 (3 laps) or 6 miles dependong on track. £10 slow and boring as hell track drive, £25 waiver, £50 for video and photo and they won't even take a photo of you stood at the car!!!! So £185 for 5 mins drive time and 3 1/2 hour wait, wasp infested, boring place. Never again.

Was dissapointed as unfortunately I couldn't drive Eleanor as planned as she had break failure. I was allowed to drive 2 of the other cars instead, Mustang GT and R8. They were fun and now I'm in love with the GT. Hoping to book again next year and finally drive my dream car Eleanor
