Why buy from us?
The Ultimate Driving Experience is quite possibly the best driving experience in the UK. With an outstanding selection of cars to drive and ride around in on a proper race circuit makes this experience the ideal gift for any supercar fan.Learn the circuit in the car widely acknowledged to be the best handing, most involving sports car on the market, the Porsche Cayman. Then work your way through four very different but individually brilliant sports cars and supercars. McLaren has set the supercar world alight. The 570S is simply stunning to drive.The bespoke Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430. Inspired by Aston Martin’s rich racing pedigree, the N430 is the most dramatic version of the Aston Martin Vantage ever created.The Ford Mustang is the king of the American muscle cars, with a powerful V8 engine upfront and all the power sent to the rear wheels. This car is the latest version of the Mustang, so now the chassis is up to the job of taming that V8 engine.Moving to the premier league performance, the most famous supercar brand in the world - Ferrari. The Ferrari 458 Spider really delivers. Performance, handling, looks, technology and something that is sometimes overlooked real emotion.After the supercars you will experience two machines that were designed and built for just one reason, to go a fast as possible around a race track within the rules for their particular formula. Starting with a five laps drive in a Martini Formula Renault, a car that will feel like a much more raw experience after driving the supercars. To finish off your experience you will be a passenger for some high-speed laps of Thruxton's famous sweeping and challenging curves and corners. The Peugeot THP Spider Cup Car has a 220 bhp 1.6-litre turbo but at just under 800 kgs it will be the fastest car through any of the corners - two laps will take your breath away.The finale is a three-lap ride with Tiff Needell in a 420 bhp rear-wheel-drive BMW M4. A man more famous now for his TV appearances on BBC Top Gear and now Channel Fives Fifth Gear, Tiff has a hugely impressive CV as an international race driver in all sorts of vehicles from Touring cars through Le Mans sports cars and a short stint in Formula One. No one is better than Tiff at going sideways and the M3 is an ideal car to do it in!
