    I was booked a track experience for my birthday after having such a traumatic year in my personal life, when I phoned up to book it the slots were so far in advance (birthday was in may) and couldn't ...  more »

  • Absolutely shocking! My in-laws bought this for my wife and I for a Mustang driving experience - a car we both love! At first we weren't given wrist bands, then had to sit for 25 mins listening to the owner about how expensive it was to repair minor damage, we paid £25 each as an insurance waiver so we wouldn't have to pay £5k if we hit a soft rubber cone! It wouldn't even cost that to repair the car since it was an older model (roughly 2010). After some waiting around, my wife's name was called, after she pulled back in, mine was called. As I passed her in the "pits" she told me the track and instructor were shocking ... needless to say after my experience, I can also say it was! The track was way too small and no speed could be built up, the instructor was pressing the dual control brakes on the straights so we couldn't properly open it up and the only time I could slightly open it up, I was told off! This is not my first time driving a powerful rear wheel drive car and I know exactly what it feels like and what to do if it steps out! I used to drive a different car with similar power to the rear wheels as a daily driver! We both bought the CD of photos for the in-laws to see however, we don't even want to show them as we both look angry and disappointed in them! Thanks for ruining our first Christmas Present from my in-laws as a married couple! Needless to say, we'll never be lining your pockets again!
  • Just back from a four man advanced driver training day. Well organised and incredibly skilled, and friendly, instruction made it an excellent day. There is some waiting around whilst your instructor gives one-to-one tuition to other drivers, but it's still a great day - I've learnt some vauable skills. Recommended.
  • The car is old and the lab it's too small to go fast and the behaviour oof who call his self owner it's shocking.
  • The day was a revelation in terms of learning about the on-limit behaviour of both yourself and your vehicle, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The fact that there is zero chance of you hitting anything when you inevitably run out of talent and spin out is of course a great bonus. You learn several different aspects of car handling before putting it altogether at the end of the day with some 'hot laps' of a track laid out with cones. There's also a very good mix between having the instructor alongside you, watching and coaching and providing feedback, and being in the vehicle on your own whilst practising (at this point, the instructor will be with another student, leaving you to focus by yourself and test if you were listening to the instructor earlier!). I'm already planning a second trip back there as there's still lots to learn! This day just goes to show that the biggest and best modification you could ever make to your car is to yourself.
  • Cars were great but track to small so you couldn't get enough speed. Also had to pay £25 excess waiver, when I asked for the paperwork I was told we don't have any. I thought if your paying for added insurance then you would have a least a bit of paper saying what your covered for. Then spent 20 minutes in a class room with the owner banging on about what it would cost if you hit a small cone on the track, just trying to scare people into buying the fake insurance. Anyone looking to drive a high performance car then try one at a proper track not here.
