Had my first self drive in the Radical sports car today. What an exceptional experience. Damon was an amazing coach and really encouraged me to push on. If you want to have a drive of a proper race car this is the way to go. I would sincerely recommend this to you

U-Drive in the Radical was an amazing experience. Steve encouraged me to push myself past the limits of what I thought the car could do and in a safe manner. I will be back”

Had a great time doing laps in the Radical U-Drive with Paul yesterday. Great clear instruction – could have kept going all day. Awesome”

- Glenn

I was shouted a U-Drive in the Radical and my co-driver Damon gave me all the pointers I needed to feel like & become a race car driver. Truly an awesome experience & not something that you’d do every day
