Bought as a gift for my daughter. Mix up at the start over who she was with so she missed the instruction part. 2 others in the car with her. They got their 20 minute drive but we only had 12 minutes. This was corrected after we insisted. Experience was good but admin side at the circuit was poo. Be prepared to stand your ground!!!

Good introduction to the feeling of a car sliding but I wouldn't pay the full price for it. Three people in the car with the instructor with about 15-20 minutes if driving. Good controlled environment which was handy when the heavy footed driver slammed into the tyre wall forcing us to waste a bit if time sorting the car out. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking to get comfortable with how a car slide feels. I will be looking to book the next level training soon.
