Had an incredible morning with Drive SuperCars. Smooth registration, everything ran like clockwork! Self driving the Lotus was the absolute highlight, and I took them up on paying for some extra laps on the day (which I would highly recommend). Instructor Dave was a superstar and we had some great laughs on the drive. I only did this yesterday and I already want to do it again. Highly recommended.

My son had the best experience! Thank you Supercars. He was unable to drive the manual car, and so the staff were so kind and let him drive an automatic McLaren, even though that was not what we booked! We so appreciated that Supercars were super flexible and kind, as it made the entire experience so good! I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone... We will be back... Thank you

Really excellent experience. Everything was made just so easy and no stress, extremely friendly staff. Well organised. My instructor was brilliant, never made me fell on edge or nervous. Great advice on where to position the vehicle, breaking and when to power on. Went quicker which led me to adding more laps on. Maybe get the brakes looked at on the Aston, them seemed to shudder at bit. Thanks again.

The afternoon was well organized. I really enjoyed driving the Aston Martin. The information prior to the event was well presented. The only small downside, was when you extend your laps you are met with card machine as you open the door to pay for the additional laps. This could be done at the desk and you can enjoy the thrill of what you just drove. But all in all a very good afternoon. Thanks
