This is your opportunity to get behind the wheel on a recreation of a certified British classic, the Jaguar E-Type II. Produced between 1968-'71, the E-Type II is the more mature, and arguably more reliable version of its predecessor, but still looks every bit the part. It's a must-drive for any true classic car enthusiast.With the Jaguar E-Type II Blast driving experience, you'll receive up to 3 miles of driving in the recreation E-Type II, accompanied by an instructor every step of the way. Their job isn't just to keep you safe, they'll be pointing out the racing line and showing you where the apexes are. As well as telling you when to brake and when to really put your foot down.

Enjoyed every minute one of my top ten wish list .. very impressed with the volume of people you delt with the range of cars were amazing

This experience was booked for me by my daughter and she had to pay a premium for the E type which was only available at certain venues,on the day the e type overheated and was not available which was very disappointing but understandable.What was very annoying was the fact no type of alternative action, other than picking another car was offered.
The possibility of re-booking, or a discount on the day would have been a nice gesture.
On a different front , the day was a very hot one and the facilites offered, particularly for spectators , were terrible, ie no shaded cover very little in way of refreshments, no seating , inadequate viewing areas.
I am in no way a petrol head and the day was supposed to be an enjoyable experience for both myself and my family and although I did enjoy the drive in an alternative car, it was not what my daughter had paid for and the biggest disappointment was hers.
