Fantastic experience. A credit to Damon being very trusting and very good at giving advice. Well done to all the team. We will be back again in 3 years to do it all again plus extra laps.”

I thoroughly enjoyed driving the Mustang around the track. Thanks to Paul my navigator couldn’t have asked for a better person I felt so safe and enjoyed the speed I drove at.

– Heather

Epic experience. My instructor Steve was brilliant. He kept encouraging more the more we went around, to push and position the car better. The Mustang was fantastic to drive, very positive feel and I was comfortable instantly. Loved every second, I’ll be back for more!

Great experience from booking, briefing and Mustang laps. All staff were very friendly and helpful
