Had an amazing time, the instructors were great to be with. The only small disappointment was the Evo-X hot lap, would have been better feeling the speed of the straight, even though it was a lap you didn't experience the entire lap.

An incredible fun filled day which was run by very friendly and capable staff. Good venue, plenty of water and sunscreen for all the punters which was good. The cars were awesome, the instructors were great - I would definitely come again. The only suggestion for improvement is to update the cheesy introductory video ! lolz..
