My second Drive All Supercars experience - the first was a month ago. Yes, drive ALL supercars: Lotus Exige - a small, lightweight burst of driving adrenalin; Aston Martin V8 - supersmooth growler and very refined; Ferrari 430 V8 - the Howler extreme driving fun; Lamborghini Tricolore - the most smiles (besides the Lotus) with astounding acceleration and an engine sound to die for - my personal favourite. All in all - Supercars put on a show from great staff, systems in place to ensure a great day out. The instructors willingly help you drive effeciently fast - the corned speed being the key (Lotus topnotch there). I and my 70-year old mate will be again again, at some time in the future.

Wow!!! what a fantastic day out, the whole experience was mind blowing. A present from my children for my 80th birthday, couldn't have gone better. The Lotus got the adrenaline pumping, then the Lambo for some real speed, followed by the Ferrari and Aston (both with extra laps) and finally the EVO Hot Lap. I too hit 160kph., but no complaints from any of the instructors, they were fabulous all the way. In summing up; Great team, great cars and a great experience. See you all again in five years.

Second time at Drive Supercars. It was even better than the first! I drove all cars this time and had an absolute blast. The instructors were amazing and by the end I couldn't wipe the grin off my face. Highly recommend driving all of the cars if you can - gives you a chance to get familiar with the track and gain confidence while also experiencing it through the different cars. All the staff are amazing - so kind and accommodating and they contributed hugely to the whole experience I had. Thanks again to Eddie and the whole team. Highly recommend!

Absolutely enjoyed the day! Brilliant! It would be even better if all the instructors took the extra care like Stu did when I drove the Lambo. Advising me to remove my shoes to prevent foot getting stuck between pedals. Thanks for that Stu! It made the drive easier and loved it!

Everyone was really friendly and kind, they made sure I was comfortable and described how to get in and out of the cars safely. As I am blind I obviously did not drive all the cars but I was a passenger in all of them. Every driver described whereabouts on the track we were and what manoeuvre or direction we were going in next. One of the best bits was how fast we were going and that we were passing all the other cars on the track as they had rookie learners in them and I had the professional drivers. I liked the sound of all the cars engines and the speed in all the cars, I liked it when we screeched around the corners and in one car we had the window open and I could feel the wind in my hair. The fastest car was the hot lap in the Mitsubishi Evo X but as professional drivers were driving the other cars, the Aston Martin, the Lamborghini, the Lotus and the Ferrari, they were all pretty fast too. The atmosphere in pit lane is friendly and welcoming and I am definitely going to do more hot laps / drives with them again. Thank you for an awesome day Logan

Hi Drive supercars team . What a fantastic day out ! After a long delay with covid we were very fired up for this.Staff were friendly and engaing and up for a few laughs. The track layout was great , loved the different types of corners and elevation changes. The discovery lap was great to understand the markers. Ferrari and Aston were amazing , however not using the paddles was unexpected and would have been prefered to add to the experience. Driving H patern lambo was sick and challenging , and the lotus was super fun loved the vvti and rawness of the car. The Instructors were very nice and friendly but all had different coaching styles , for me the experience was greatly improved by having the same instructor twice as I didn't need to prove to him that I could do it and we could crack on with the laps. saying that I have done alot of these experiences in Nz and a few overseas , so probibly not your average client and I understand you have to treat everone with caution around there claimed abilities. The Evo hotlap was a real surprise for our group , we felt like Eddie drove that car like he stole it and were surprised with how much of a thrill we got off that lap , we talked about it all weekend , In heinsight we would have paid for a few more laps of stolen Evo experience. Thanks, ripper job , cheers
