Buyagift.com Lamborghini driving experience reduced from £99 to £69 but the price drops to £55.20 with the BuyAGift 20% discount code (123123 or 789789) plus £1.95 for standard P&P and you get to drive a Lamborghini Gallardo for £57.15! The ride lasts for 6 miles, which for example would be three laps of the Donington Park circuit.

Locations include Kenilworth, Warwickshire (Midlands), Elvington, Yorkshire (North) and Chobham, Surrey (South East). So no Donington or Rockingham as with previous BuyAGift Thrill deals. I think you might be able to wangle a Quidco rebate too; 15% IIRC, but I haven't a clue how Quidco works!

These BuyAGift Driving Thrill specials come & go; the Audi R8 Thrill became super-hot (I bought one for a friend for Christmas) but the recent Porsche & Aston Martin Thrill deals have achieved only lukewarm status. Lets see how hot the Lambo deal goes!

Biggest waste of time - don't buy. I love lambo's and bought a voucher last year after it was shown here on HUKD reduced. I had my drive just last Saturday in Stafford. Time spent in car is no more than 15 minutes, it is 3 measely laps around a tiny circuit that is mapped out with a few fading cones. there is a queue of people waiting to get in the car, so they just hurry you in and out, one after the other, no time to appreciate the car. Not worth it even at this price, I was very disappointed.

Seems like a waste of money to me, a good post if you're interested in sitting in a car for about 5 minutes, but I can think of better things to spend my money on. Heat added though as it is a good deal!
#5
Commented before on these deals i'm not a fan of them as with post above found it to be awaste of money but i'm sure there's some girlies and boy racers that could boast to there mates that they've driven a super (sorry i mean been a passenger in a super car):p

I assume the driving thrill is sitting in the passenger seat hoping it won't catch fire while you are inside it?

Done it in a Aston nice but poor value. Elvington!!!! airfield with some cones.

I had a 3 car experience at Kenilworth and yeah it is 3 laps (well 2 1/2) as you miss half a lap going out and then coming in. The laps are pretty short and max speed is only about 90mph before you have to brake, glad I did it but wouldn't do it again and expecially if it was only a 1 car drive as you would only be driving for about 5 mins in one car and it took us over 2 hours to get to the location!

This was the best bit of the day for me, you get a passenger ride with an instructor in a Evo 9 and he really throws it round the track (only for a single lap though!)

For people who have tons of extra cash lying around, Go for it. For people who dont have tons of extra cash lying around, buy yourself a weeks worth of groceries. For people who have families, buy your wives and children some presents, you'll get a better thrill outta that, that sitting in a stupid car for a few mins.

Actually, that's not bad, My Ducati probably costs me £57 every 6 miles, faster, more fun and people don't think you're a flash tw@ with an iPhone
#13
I would like to receive this as a gift (as long as it's near where I live) but I wouldn't buy it myself, if you know what I mean?
#14
Even a tenner for this is to much ... complete waste of time. Its an experience alright .... but not a very pleasant one. buy a lotter ticket or something ... dont bother with this one!

OK cold voters; for those of us who like driving what should we spend £50 or so on?

Here's my alternative suggestions:

Karting (I've done this a couple of times and really enjoyed it but I'm not sure my daughter would do anything except crash and my six year old is too young)
OR
Taking my wife n kids to a hill climb - (Me 'n' the wife went to the Doune hil climb years ago and had a great day - £50 would leave us change for a decent meal out or a cheap hotel!!)
OR
Mariokart (both kids love this on the Wii, £50 is more than enough to buy 2 copies for DS so they can race each other)
OR
Fill the car with fuel and drive til we get somewhere interesting... (£50 should get me about 500 miles so where's within a 250 mile radius of Glasgow?)

What else can you suggest?

I drove the Audi R8 at Rockingham a few weeks ago using the same offer. I totally loved the car and circuit and think £57 for the time you get is fine. Voted Hot

NB: Quidco was declined on the Audi R8 offer so this will likely be the same

It's difficult - us petrol heads can't really get much 'thrill' for £50 if you don't already own a nice car.. The nearest thing which feels remotely worth while is hiring a Lotus Elise for a day, usually about £200 for weekdays.

I was given the Aston DB9 Experience and really enjoyed it, got it up to 164mph and I couldn't catch the Lambo that was in front of me so I reckon they were doing close to 180. I'd recommend it. Don't listen to the idiots who say it's only 5 mins so it's not worth the bother, I've been driving 14 years, been a courier for the past 4 years, owned various 'fast cars' and as consequence am thoroughly bored with driving - yet the 4 laps I did were absolutely amazing, doing 160mph in a £100k+ luxurious supercar was awesome.

Dead right - and this isn't one of the bad threads either!

The knockers on this deal presumably have no idea what it costs to run one of these motors, plus staff, marketing, etc. It's actually amazing they can let you touch it for 50 quid! Kick a football around for a prem team and buy your own - or stick to something within your means. Pick a more modest motor and you can actually have a lot of fun with one of the driving 'academies' for a couple of hundred pounds. Anything less is naive. Single seaters at Silverstone were a real challenge - but then it did rain!

15 mins to do 3 laps? Were you pushing it?

Very much doubt you 'got it up to 164mph' .....ive been on 3 of these driving experience at 3 different centres and there is NO WAY ON THIS EARTH that firstly, you could even have enough tarmac to hit 164mph or secondly, the instructor even letting you get close to that speed.

IMHO, this is a good deal. I mean yeah, giving someone £50 to drive 3 laps in a supercar probably seems a waste of money to some people and yeah, fair enough. But 'some' people will have always wanted to drive a Ferrari/Lambo or whatever and paying £50 to those people is probably value for money.

Some of the centres have larger tracks than others, but none of them are HUGE and none (that i went on) have big enough straights to really take it top end, but thats not what these experiences are about IMHO...if you want a proper driving experience then book a Rally day.

Put it this way....how else would you been able to thrash a supercar round a track for this cheap?? (other than stealing one!! ) - i bet if you added up the cost of the venues insurance for the day, the petrol/insurance and the instructors wages.....i bet they only just make a profit at this price.....

Oh...and unfortunately, the whole driving experience (ie time actually driving the Ferrari/lambo) IS only 15 minutes (if that)..but you do get taken as a passenger in a Scooby which is fun!!! .....so you have to weigh up what you want to gain from the experience - if you want to test out a supercar to its limits then im affraid you're gonna be disappointed.....if you just want the experience of having driven a car you could only ever dream of owning and putting your foot down a little bit for 3 short laps, then this is perfect.


People shouldnt **** the deal off saying its a waste of money.....to THEM it is, but to someone whos always dreamt of driving a Ferrari, its not. its horses for courses, just depends on what you want to spend your money on.

I did the Mazda Zoom Zoom challenge at 2008 London Motor Show - FREE

The instructor there told me the best fun you can have is if you take your own car! I suppose it depends what car you have! Owners clubs always organise things like this on disused airfields, much better value for money :)

My mate took his own VX220 and he said it was 'the most fun he'd had with clothes on' :)

I most assuredly did and the instructor was quite happy. I can't remember the name of the track / airfield as my brother drove us there, it was somewhere nr Nottingham and it had a clapped out jumbo jet with Asda signage parked up. I came out of the top 's' bend at about 70 / 80, the instructor told me to try and catch the Lambo and I floored it on the long straight - he wrote down 164 (my brother got 163mph, the lady before us got 150). The instructor even let me powerslide it out of the sharper bends, the only thing we were told was that if you spin it then your done.

*edit* well perhaps 'powerslide' is a bit strong a word but I did get the back end wobbly!
