Why buy from us?
Ferraris are the thoroughbred power horses of the supercar world, and these beautifully designed and powerfully engineered models are much desired by motoring enthusiasts of all ages thanks to their long lasting legacy. With our Ultimate Ferrari History Driving Experience, you’ll get the opportunity to get behind the wheel of four of their most celebrated cars for a package that Ferrari fans will love.

And we offer this experience at a variety of great race and track locations across the UK, so you're sure to find one near you.

One of the more "fragile" of the Ferrari's had broken but I got to drive an AC Cobra instead so I wasn't exactly disappointed! The Ferrari California was in great demand so rather than wait (I was in a family party) I took a Lamborghini Huracan drive instead - again - not disappointed! The Ferrari I really wanted (458 Italia) was just wonderful. The instructors are quite "kind" in their marking and comments.

To be honest, it felt like organised chaos at the time. So many people waiting for their drive, lots of cars in use!!! But the staff and instructors are exceptional, which just makes the experience so worth while. I'm hooked and can't wait to do another experience. Loved it 😀

Positives: a short stint behind the wheel of some very cool cars for all ages, in a very accessible environment. Most of the staff are lovely, very understanding and encouraging from what I could see. The guys looking after the 458 and 348 on 23rd July in particular were great and really enthusiastic.
Negatives: be aware this is NOT a track day. There are little kids driving the cars and no helmets are required. 750 drivers were there the day I went! Seems to be a money printing factory, which is fair enough. However....
It is NOT the Top Gear circuit as implied, but 1/3 of it and then a coned chicane to return to the start. The cars are absolutely ruined - all but one had engine warning lights, filthy inside, broken trim everywhere, smashed windscreens (McLaren). smashed mirrors (Superlegga), and duct taped lights (Gallardo) - a sad thing to see as a car lover but I guess to be expected with 400 drivers each day. Be prepared for a lot of waiting around.
They run an Aston DB5 kit car but I got the impression nobody there knew it was a fake and they also described it as an Aston. The 911 GT3 is a Carerra with stickers. So, yeah....
Overall....a decent experience for the little ones or those mildly into cars. I got to give the 458 some welly and that was a fabulous experience with a nice instructor. If you're a bit more serious, try one of the Thruxton driving experience days, with professional track instruction from a racing driver.

I thoroughly enjoyed a well organised afternoon. My own experience was excellent in that I only had short intervals between each drive.
