Not wanting to show off.....well actually I am....but my brother has one of these and I was fortunate enough to have a good drive! An incredible drive, an AMAZING car, well worth this awsome price. HOT HOT HOT!

Most likely the most outrageous cop car in the world, the Italian state police's Gallardo can reach speeds of 192 mph thanks to its 10-cylinder, 500-horsepower engine.

So 179Mph on a 2 mile circuit = A very short trip !

I suppose it's a bit like making love to the woman of your dreams - it won't last very long but you'll probably dream about it forever:thumbsup:

In any event, the object of your dreams will soon disappear 'cos you can't afford the upkeep anyway so just be content and accept your current lot!:p

A good deal. I would recommend not taking out the cancellation insurance (£20 to cover against illness, breakdown to event or family death) seems a bit of a rip-off to me. I first thought it was compulsory damage waiver kind of insurance- it isn't.

For anyone that's interested you purchase indemnity waiver insurance on day of the event £20-30 depending on the venue/weather.

From the T&C's

2. Drivers Dream Days indemnity Waiver provided on day of events by signing a form & paying a fee between £20-£30 (dependant on venue and weather) we can offer a Damage Waiver Insurance. (That voids the above signing Indemnity on arrival). Drivers Dream Days have agreed that should there be any damage whatsoever to any of the vehicles I drive today I will not have to pay the first £2000 of damage as previously stated on the signing in sheet for my experience. The Damage Waiver Insuarance is void if found to be driving negligently/dangerously. I confirm that I am not suffering from any illness or disability whether permanent or temporary or otherwise which is likely to affect my control of the vehicles being driven. I confirm I hold a valid UK/International driving license.

Be aware though if you manage to write it off or crash that a Lamborghini is very, very expensive to repair and it's not clear whether or not you'd be responsible for any damage above £2,000.

God, I'd love this. And I live in Leicester. As a 24 year-old singleton whose birthday passed by 2 months ago though, I doubt there's a snowball's chance in hell of me going on it, sadly. :(

Still, very hot for anyone who's into cars and CAN go on it though. Heat and rep added.

so that's where my tax moneys going!

not happy! :(
#21
you pay to experiance the ride yet still are expected to take the cost and risk of damage and insurance. HA HA HA on a race track er no thank you! If they are a business they should be insured. A customer shouldnt have to take the risk for insurance. I wouldnt touch this with a barge pole tbh. (Just 'my' opinion anyway.)

Good find and good price otherwise. Just not a 'complete' deal to me with risk without extra cost for waiver fee
#22
They don't let you do anything stupid on these driving days. You won't be doing anywhere near the top speed and will be lucky to get over a 120 before you start panicking.
Usually there aren't enough cars on the track to allow you to write it off.

If you're over 6" and have big feet, you'll probably find it quite difficult to fit in. Take narrow trainers as the pedals are quite close together.
I had a go in a Diablo. It's terrifying. You put your foot down, it roars and shoots forward. The instructor just kept screaming faster, faster on the straights. I'm not a wussy driver.

£79 is an absolute steal.
#23
I'd also pay extra for the high speed passenger lap. Mine was in an S2000 and the driver was a nutter.
#24
I went in a Nascar at the Daytona track when I was in Florida back in 1998......£75 got you 3 laps driven by a professional.

So, you do actually hit 170 mph and as you sit on the right of the car you are just a few feet from the wall - an awesome experience.

Trouble is, you need to get to Florida first! Good news is it looks like it's still the same price (unlike everything in the UK)

Amazingly, 10 years later, the cost is still the same! You can tell it's not in the UK.

I think they used to do it at Rockingham...not sure if they still do.

Well, as the old boy has put up with me for 25yrs on Weds I guess this would be appropriate compensation, so to speak. We are right on top of Goodwood too. Good deal. Voted hot. Thanks

It's true that they tell you to keep the speed down but once you are alone out on the track they can do nothing. I just floored it and blew all their silly rules away, so did most of the drivers.

I agree about the pedal spacing, first time I went in normal shoes I had to operate the pedals sideways, next time I borrowed Sparco boots and it was OK. If anyone does this then I recommend wearing some narrow shoes, Converse are usually quite good substitute for Sparcos. The Gallardo is more 'normal' driving friendly than a Diablo in this respect, the Audi influence on Lambourghini does show on the later cars. As far as I remember they don't do any heel and toe or left foot braking instruction, you just floor it.

Thanks for this - I just booked the Ferrari Experience for the 27th June at Kenilworth, the track is just 5 miles down the road from me, I've already been in the Gallardo at Rockingham. See you there :-)

No problem and welcome to HUKD:)

I'd definately try going to Bruntingthorpe if you're wanting speed as it's got about 1 mile long straight (on the short section, long section (4 miles) has a 2 mile straight)

As previous poster states these are for promotional purposes only. That front spoiler wouldnt last 5 minutes going over some of the speed bumps in the UK :p

The reason the police have these flash cars is because they are legally entitled to take property, money, cars etc under the proceeds of crime act off any criminal that is convicted for say drugs offences and it is proved that they money they used to buy all these belongings were made from the proceeds of crime. It doesn't come out of tax payers money!! :)
