A bit confusing where you have to go, the place is so big. But eventually we found it. The talk beforehand takes over 30 mins, so takes up quite a lot of the time. You then follow a vehicle or 10 mins to get you...More

The single seat cars are small, low, uncomfortable, agile, very loud and powerful. It feels extremely odd to have such direct steering and have the gear change lever on the right hand side of your knee with no gearbox synchro, double de-clutching is a must...More

Really enjoyable and well organised. A full thirty minutes in the driving. 10 minutes practice and 20 minutes of proper racing where you can go as fast as you dare. Excellent fun, intense and fast! 100% recommended. I really enjoyed it and have done quite...More

Is was a good day but felt the whole thing was a bit rushed and track time limited for what you pay, the instructors were very good so no complaints there. The cars themselves are ok but the gear shift is very clunky and can...More
