Retirement Gift Ideas
If you’ve got a much loved colleague, boss or family friend who’s about to embark on their Retirement, at Driving Experience we can help make it the start of a relaxing, enjoyable time ahead, as they step away from the professional rat race and begin a new chapter in their life.
After countless years spent on the professional treadmill, now’s the prime opportunity to treat them to one of our driving experience days as a unique Retirement Gift.
Rest assured that, if they’re not quite ready to succumb to the charms of slippers and a comfy chair, these will be right up their street. And who knows? Not only will it create some magical memories to look back on, but could even spark a new interest or passion for them to pursue.
Classic Cars for Retirement
Retirement could be a fantastic opportunity for them to develop an interest in the joys of classic cars that ruled the roads during some golden ages of motoring. We have a fantastic selection of packages in both Blast (3 mile) and Thrill (6 mile) options at many of our driving experience locations and venues.
One of the best places to book a Classic Car driving experience is Bicester Heritage Centre in Oxfordshire, the only venue left in the UK to experience driving them at a centre of historical motoring significance.
They can take to the wheel of a Jaguar E-Type, an AC Cobra, an Aston Martin Vantage amongst many others on their 1.3 mile long track, or even enjoy them all together as part of our Combined packages which lets them drive up to six vintage cars of their choice.
Plus the centre’s original buildings have all been carefully restored by the team there, and are still used today for vintage car restoration, which they’ll get to have a tour of when a classic car driving package is purchased there.
Perhaps there was a childhood dream of being a racing driver that went untapped as life, family and career took its course? Their newly cleared schedule will allow them a chance to realise that particular dream, with our range of Racing Car driving days, in both Single and Dual Seater cars, custom prepared with the race track in mind.
Our Westfield Driving Experiences can be enjoyed in Blast or Thrill options, and even for two people to enjoy, as they get to take on a classic Westfield Sport 1600 kit sports car for six or twelve exhilarating laps.
For a day that can be enjoyed with the family, the iconic home of British motorsport at Silverstone Circuit have just launched their brand new Silverstone Experience exhibition. This is a totally immersive day out, which, starting from £20, will take them through over 70 years of motorsporting history to absorb and interact with.
Going Into Battle
If your soon-to-be retiree has always had a keen eye for history, particularly for World War II, they can experience some of the vehicles that led our country to victory during combat, with our range of Tank Driving and Military Vehicle packages.
At Southfields Farm in Leicestershire, they can get to drive a fifteen turreted FV432 tank - which we dare say is a good way to unleash all that pent up office fuelled frustration they’ve built up over the years!
Their experience package will also include passes for them and two guests to enjoy the on site museum, which has more great military vehicles of the period on display for them to explore.
Unique Retirement Presents
Even though retirement marks the end of their professional life, it doesn’t mean the end of life full stop. Driving Experience’s unique range of retirement presents will show just how valued and missed they will be as they leave the office for the last time, and embark on exciting new adventures that they can really enjoy to the full.
And with our open gift vouchers, additional gift wrap and personalised options are available when you purchase which can make it a memorable keepsake they can take with them through the rest of their life.
