Didn’t have the time I paid for as the driver didn’t time it and was pretty sure it was about 25 minutes when it was less than 5!

Due to the car being unavailable as it had broken down we actually had a different experience which involved driving a few of the luxury cars which was 5 stars. (In addition to a few passenger rides).
cars: Excellent
staff: Excellent

The experience and website pictures implied the drifting experience would be driving round a track. Instead all it was was being taught donuts around a cone
