One of the best experiences I've ever had. Your team was very professional and ensured everything ran smoothly. I'm still buzzing. My only downside was the USB video. I have been unable to play it with sound which rather defeats the purpose. I've never had a problem like this on my computer. Is there a specific software required to play it?

An awesome day. Thank you to the team who ran his day. Claudia had a fabulous time and the smile on her face at the end of the day will stay with me always. I can't recommend highly enough that anyone should give this a go. And it's a perfect gift to give, so buy that someone special a gift card!

It was an awesome day from start to finish. Professional on boarding process, clear communication and outlook communicated about potential delays due to fog. Felt safe and appreciated throughout all interactions with staff. Only one bugbear which would be awesome for you to add to the USB Video is adding the Speed telemetry to the video. I was too focused on the road ahead during my drive and never looked at the speedo and was hopeful it may have been part of the graphics on the video. It’s the first question people ask, “how fast did you go?” But unfortunately I have no idea. Someone mentioned you get up to about 200km down back straight but I have no idea what personally I did. Having the speed on there would be the icing on the cake and make a 9/10 experience a 10/10 once in a lifetime opportunity. Thanks

The Experience

Why choose drive one when you can drive two? Double the excitement by driving the Lotus as well as one other Supercar choosing from the Lamborghini, Ferrari & Aston Martin.

Would you go for the Lamborghini's raw V12 power, the Aston Martin's style & sophistication, or the soft and aerodynamic lines of the convertible Ferrari F430 Spyder? Yes – the choice is yours!

You'll take the wheel for 8km in both the Lotus as well as your choice from the three powerhouse brands in automotive perfomance and prestige  - which will you choose? As if this wasn’t the perfect gift, we wrap it up in style with a flying hot lap in the passenger seat of the awesome Mitsubishi EvoX. The ultimate end to a once in a life-time driving experience, every seat in this 4-door superstar is as good as the next - whether you’re in the front seat or the back you’ll be smiling from ear to ear when you get out.

See you at the track!
