  • 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

    A great experience, staff were amazing and Dave was awesome. Loved every minute of it. The Evo hot lap blew my mind, the driver had huge personality and you could really tell he loved his job, as well as have exceptional skill - a real experience.

    I found the entire driving experience a thrill. It was a birthday gift so I wasn’t involved in the booking process, but I understand it was straight forward. The staff were friendly and professional, the track and general facilities clean and tidy, and the cars, whilst not the latest, were exotic enough. The instructor I had was very good. A suggestion from me would be an addition to the garage - a genuine hot hatch, such as a Renault Sport Megane, VW Golf Gti, Honda Type R - I would love to try out one of those.

    I had a blast. The car was great, and my instructor was awesome - enough free reign that I could stretch it, and some good advice to help me get some better lines. We actually both had a hoot which was super cool Thanks heaps to all of you!
