Wow, this is a great price for an unforgetable experience!! "Fast and furious racing - not for the faint-hearted!"

Ideal Father's Day gift, so hope my kids are reading ;)

Single seaters are the closest looking cars you may ever get to driving an actual Formula 1 car. As you sit in the small cockpit you look out towards the start line, you start to build the revs, and when the flag is dropped you drop the clutch and launch down the straight. In a matter of seconds you're taking the corners and barrelling along!

The programme typically involves a welcome on arrival, followed by a briefing. Then it's time to take to the wheel for laps in a performance saloon, where your instructor will demonstrate circuit driving techniques such as taking the correct line on a corner. Next you take the wheel yourself to practice what you have been taught. Then the real action begins: you take a single seater racing car, the ubiquitous Van Dieman, BHP 160 top speed 130 mph, 0 to 60mph - 5 secs, this car is perfectly placed to introduce you to the exhilaration and excitement of racing. Please note you can upgrade your experience to Saturdays at an extra cost, please check on booking.

The 'standard' price is always discounted to some degree or other, but this is the best price I've seen it at for quite a while. Good find, hotted up

you'll be there for 2 hours, but you'll get FAR from that amount of time behind the wheel.

This is still probably a good deal though if your not too far away.

any ideas what the 'additional cost' for weekend is?

Mayster it's always worth ringing them to find out what the exact dimensions are. I'm 6'5" and was concerned about doing one at Donington which had the same height limit but it turned out the thing fitted like a glove! There's still some of the smile left and it was over a year ago ;)

Granted though, I think you'd be doing well to get 10 laps out of this two hour session - generally these red letter type events just want you to have a quick go and get out before you get comfortable and start to push too hard!

Just because you don't like it doesn't make it a rubbish deal!
It's a very good deal - especially for those that live close, voted hot, even though it's too far for me to travel to.
