I had so much fun on the day, driving the Aston Martin! What an adrenaline boost - the staff were fantastic, we had a whole pile of little kids there and everyone was very helpful. Such an amazing day, I can't wait to do it again!

I had a dreamy day! Everyone was very helpful and Jamie’s comments and enthusiasm made my day ?? Oh and my hot lap was beyond ?? I got helpful advice from all my copilots and so feel armed to take things further ?? Thank you all for a very special day. The only hiccup was the video, it didn’t work twice and created plenty walking up and down to the reception after each drive, having said that, it meant I was there most of the day which I enjoyed! But now home, the video only works for 1 lap. Not sure I really want to hear me nervously blethering but I would have liked to hear Jamie’s encouragement ?? Thought you should know. All up it was much better experience than I’d hoped for, good job Team. Sue

Hi there My husband really enjoyed his birthday treat yesterday thank you. However I need to make a couple of points: 1. Please advise why no sound on the USB stick. 2. I was in a mobility scooter and because I couldn't get up the steep step at ground level, went upstairs and stayed in the video area. I was only informed after John had completed the experience that I could have turned right coming out of the lift, gone to the end of the passage where I could have taken better photos. Perhaps spectators like myself could be told this beforehand. 3. It was said that safety was a priority. With Covid it should be essential. I believe your driver/passenger of the Lotus didnt wear a mask, but neither was one offered to John. Nor did he get offered one in the car with 3 other people. Please address as this could not only affect vulnerable people, but also your business. We are still not out of the woods with Covid. I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards  Joan Landers

Hi Guys, Thank you for one of the greatest experiences of my life! You were all so welcoming and friendly and I could see that you are a great team just by the way you interact with each other. Both the instructor in the Aston Martin and the driver of the Evo-X were super helpful and friendly. Instructions were given in a clear way with an explanation to make it easy to understand and remember. I learned something new on how to take a car into a corner. Again thank you for a very special experience and I will definitely see you soon. Cheers, Casper Smith

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?

The Experience

Oh the choices…what a life when you get to choose between driving a Lamborghini, Ferrari or an 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!

Experience the power of one of these supercars driving for 8km around Hampton Downs Raceway as one of our expert instructors provide guidance on the finer points of handling these beautiful machines. If this wasn’t already one of the best ways to spend a day, 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 we're sure you’ll be smiling from ear to ear when you get out.

See you at the track!
