Probably going to get voted cold but this is a big saving from the RRP; hopefully F1 enthusiasts will appreciate the deal.

Use code MEGAJAN at checkout.

Factor in the cashback (via TCB) and total is £1187.22!

Did this experience a few months ago and it truly was an unforgettable experience. Cashback has also been paid (I know there's the standard blurb on TCB for using authorised codes only but my boyfriend and myself had no problems with payment).


The Experience

Your experience starts with a comprehensive safety briefing. You will then start your track activity with five familiarisation laps of the circuit in a sports saloon being driven by an instructor. You will then progress on to drive the saloon car for 10 laps before you climb behind the wheel of both the Aston Martin and the Ferrari 360 for two 6 mile sessions, honing your skills for the move on to a Single Seater for a paced 10 lap session. The development continues, next you'll drive seven un-paced laps in the single seater followed by 10 laps in the stunning Formula 3 single seater before 10 mind-blowing laps in the awesome 1996 Italian Forte Corsa or 1994 Arrows.

These cars, once driven by Luca Badoer and Aguri Suzuki are now yours to live the dream.

Lunch, memorabilia and an F1 certificate are also included.

To make your Formula 1 Driving experience with The Racing School even more special the package includes overnight accommodation for two at the 4 star Cottons Hotel & Spa Cheshire.

Quidco website states the following :

"Cashback is available with Buyagift. At this time we've no additional voucher codes or offers, but keep watching this space we're always adding new deals."

"Terms & conditions
Cashback will be declined if you use a non-quidco authorised discount code through quidco."

It is doubtful that you will get £212 cashback according to the T&Cs.

For £100 you can drive mine, its a massive 1.6 diesel golf, oh yeah fast as flipflops
Not for me (bit of a granny when it comes to driving), but this seems like it is the "real deal". There are a lot of pointless 'driving' experience deals out there, where you wait in a massive crowd for 1-3 laps in a fast-ish car. That's not even enough time to get used to the track/car, so you spend all of those laps going slowly and not experiencing the limits of the car. But these are fast, agile cars and they seem to be giving you the time to get to grips with what they can do. Stuff like this isn't usually on offer. Voted hot
Does sound cool as I've done a single seater experience And love it but isnt an F1 car not another beast. Didn't Hammond on Top Gear say you have maintain temperature in the tyres or they are undrivable. Meaning you'll have to drive pretty fast if he struggled with it and the amount he does.
I can offer £98 for an Audi a3 1.6 diesel. Seriously tho if I had that money laying around I would be tempted at that price.
I'd have to be a millionaire tbh.
£90 and you can drive my Corsa VXR Nurburgring for a lap around the M60 :P
£80 for a Ford Mondeo Zetec 2.0 TDCi around Huddersfield Ring Road?
Judging by the activities on the day, it looks a hot deal to me.

Wicked! Hello from number 009 Are you on VXROnline? Maybe we should take this to PM before we bore everyone haha.....
Looks like a fantastic experience and there is a good saving on the normal price, but in the current financial climate it is priced for city bigwigs to unwind after a hard day of screwing up the economy and not for the majority of HUKDers. Not voting either way as it is a good reduction, but I don't want to give it heat and draw attention to the deal for the people who can afford it

I can assure you that I'm not a 'city bigwig' and I can afford it.

I'm sure you are not. I was generalising somewhat. However, in the current climate, where the only thriving businesses are administrators, very few people can justify this kind of spend for a days jolly. I am jealous that you have done it though.8)
very nice, and less money than I've seen before - hot
Low cost does not always mean a bargain and high (er) cost does not always mean a rip off,this seems great value for your money,a good deal I think.

Hot
I can buy a car for that!!
It does look an incredible package. Wish I could justify spending that sort of money on it. Looks so much better than the Red Letter Day equivalents.
It's only the price of ten pairs of stupid Ugg boots or three overpriced iPhones and plenty of people seem prepared to pay through the nose for them!
Perfect birthday present for me. Hint hint.
Cold....Total waste of money!
Would love to do this
I am currently making a racing simulator. Surely this is obviously a business expense *clutches at straws*

Cold....Total waste of money!



I concur.

I concur.


Well of course it is if your after a tea cosy!
Looks cool but shouldnt it be called a formula 3 experience!!
I love the cold voters, this type of deal is obviously not for you, this deal is for people with petrol flowing through their veins, people who love cars and motorsports. So keep your comments to yourself.

Show me where you can drive an old F1 car for less then vote.

If I had this kind of money laying about, or if it was close to a milestone birthday, then I know where my money would be going. I would absolutely love to do this. This is hotter than a hot thing.

For the haters, go and clog up the middle lane on your nearest motorway and leave the enthusiasts be.

Sounds like a good deal, checking the piggy bank as I write!!!
Ah misread it....looks like you get alot for money

Effectively its 5 re letter events bolted together plus an F3 experience plus an F1 experience. Good deal F1 experiences are usually very expensive.

No because after you drive the formula 3 car you drive a formula one car.
Wow didnt realise this included accomodation...HOT
£68.95 3 laps round the IDR in reading in my 300C ... note this is Reading so there's traffic lights every 50yds!
I wish I could afford to do this. Seems like a really great experience. That's a lot of laps too

Three Sisters is a kart track, so you're hardly going to scratch the surface in an ex-F1 car. Nice to be able to say you have though I guess.

If I had that money to spend, I'd be going to Palmersport again, and having plenty of change left over. Their single seaters are "only" 250bhp but you still don't get to fully exploit it on a much bigger track in the time available, and you get a full day driving all sorts of other interesting stuff with instructors who actually want you to go as quickly as you can.
As these kind of things go that doesn't seem too unreasonable a price, driving some very nice cars for a decent length of time.
Yes, it is still a hell of a lot of money but for a once-in-a-lifetime treat....
Sorry have to vote cold...
cold. me and my mates wanted to go for a late 'bump cars' ride after our traditional pub session next friday, but your code is useless. it only works for one item at checkout and not 15 as we wanted. just a middle lane enthusiast showing his anger
