Haven't redeemed voucher yet. Bought this in Feb for my husbands birthday. Impossible to contact company to been event. Went through Groupon to contact them. The company called me back once as I was driving and said to fall them. Constantly engaged. Have managed now to book (with perserverence) only date available was July. Not very good birthday present.

This is partially a negative response to what was something overall I was glad to take advantage of. I would recommend this experience to others because it does offer true value for money (with an obvious incentive to spend more to take away photographic mementos of your day) but was slightly let down by coming away with no video footage of my track experience (my in-car instructor forgot to press Record) but I did come away with a pricey set of photos captured of my time in what I paid to drive (Nissan GTR). I was graciously given an extra lap because of the slow performance of the driver in front and overall I enjoyed my set of laps I was given but they're over before you know it. Registration upon arrival was very straightforward and the promo lap was very helpful in preparing for my time in the car but having to wait standing outside in cold weather (despite the meagre sun) was a bit of a let down. I was well over an hour early for my time on the track and ended up waiting nearly twenty minutes past the due time before I could have a go. The track itself is small but set out adequately for what you're to experience. Just don't expect to open up too much- it's more about negotiating the vehicle handling under speed than putting your foot down. Parking is adequate but getting to it is a little bumpy. The event staff themselves are friendly and helpful and facilitate you as best they can, as are the in-car instructors (sadly mine let me down for not allowing video to capture my time on track). I don't rate the staff responsible for the photography you can take away with you from there. They were unapologetic and apathetic to the lack of video they couldn't provide and charging £20 for photos is extortionate. The guy I was served by just seemed to find the whole process a joke and couldn't spell my name even when I repeated it more than once. He even told me I wasn't to receive a certificate but approaching another member of staff from the registration hut confirmed that I was supposed to. I came away from the track wishing I hadn't bothered after this. I would likely go again but make sure things were done right when expected to pay for things as much as they deemed them. Good range of cars on offer and safety is considered in all areas with food, drink and toilet facilities provided too. Booking was very easy to do too and no stress at all. Not bad. But not great either.

I thought it was going to be me on a racetrack where I could build up a good speed but it was just like a test drive which you can get free from a car dealer.
