    You can get these with Tesco vouchers - makes it a very cheap way of getting them.......

    Try buyagift.com....there is a 20% off voucher on here if you look for it

    Oh, and I have done the rally driving one and it was great fun, especially when you are taken around by a 'proper' driver!

    The £59 one lets the voucher holder choose a car from a list when booking I think - think the husband will go for the Aston Martin...

    Even better - will look in to that sazzyjay

    Just received an email from the Asda Baby & Toddler Group:

    asda-gifts.co.uk/Cat…ces

    £5 off using the code: ASDABABY

    I can very highly recommend using buyagift! We brought my dad a driving exp. with them this year for his birthday. We paid less than £100 and he got 2/3 laps as a passenger then an off road drive and finally 6 laps in an aston. They were so professional all day, it was well structured and everything ran really smoothly. I wouldnt hesitate in using them again.

    Quidco also have a £5 voucher off too, just used it & it worked for me (_;)

    Thanks everyone

    Various family members have done different driving experiences over the years and we tend to find out where our local driving places are and see what the prices are direct.
    I was sent this link last week so may be worth a try to see if code is still valid - tellallmyfriends.com/pro…box
    Code is DRIVEMVC
    Forgot to say code takes it from £148 to £59 apparently

    Thanks for that hun have your family used these before are they good? x

    Ive not used this company before no, i'd do a little check before ordering as i do with most sites.

    I did the Aston Martin one at Thruxton in August and loved it. My wife opted for the extra car as well (single seater) however I would not recommend the single seater as you do not know the car how it will perform and you are obviously on your own so are not told how to get the best out of it. Also the rear view mirror was Tin Foil so had no idea what was around me (this is something that the instructor keeps an eye on when in the car with them so you can concentrate on driving.

    Its also worth looking into seeing if Tiff Nedle (or however you spell it!) is going to a track as he was charging £125 (a lot I know) for 3 laps as a passenger in his BMW M3. I did not do it but looked great, man he can drive!

    125mph down the back straight at Thruxton wish I could go back and do it again!

    Be aware though, that these "driving " days do not involve much driving. You'll get about 10 laps of the circuit, and, if a lap is a 1:30, then you're looking at about 13 minutes worth of driving. It will be over before you know it. The rest is filled with safety talks and a few laps as a passenger.
