Wrap up because it's very open and very windy. There was no big hard sell although we did end up spending more than we expected! Get the demo lap (£10) to make the most of your actual driving laps. We had a lovely day out spending a voucher we recuebed for Christmas

Hi Stacey and thank you for bothering to write a few positive words. We always advise customers to wrap up as it really is cold in York even when the sun shines. Hope to see you back soon. Simon George More

I went for a 4 car, double the distance and wow! After the demo lap ( well worth it) I drove the Audi R8, Ariel atom, Lamborghini & Ferrari , then a hot lap. My advice is ... do it! Great cars and the most helpful and friendly instructors you could wish for. As you build confidence they encourage you... More

Myself and a friend were recently at this track venue with 6th Gear and had 3 treble supercar rides. We had one of the most amazing days out due to the stunning choice of well maintained performance cars to take round a nicely thought out circuit. All members of the 6th Gear staff went out of their way to be... More

Driving an Aston Martin has long been a dream of mine, and when family bought me an experience day for a significant birthday, I was over the moon. Booking was a simple experience, download and activate the voucher, and a quick phone call to the very helpful operator and it was all done. The day arrived, and despite setting off... More

Thanks for your comprehensive review Ian. I suppose any amount of laps is never enough! And as for the mirrors the instructor has to have full use of them since he/she needs a constant clear view of other supercars which may want to overtake. If they do they is a pre-arranged set process by which this is done to avoid... More

The instructor I had (Nigel) was great, really calm and clear. I took an Aston Martin round 4 laps and had a terrific time. I've never driven a car like that before and would really recommend it. I then had a "hot lap" in another Aston, driven by Alan who was phenomenally talented behind the wheel and seemed to enjoy... More

A really balanced review and I take your points on board. I think in most public facing business' the upselling is just about mandatory and in this fiercely competitive day and age is all too common - take airlines for example. However it can be annoying I agree if people feel it overdone. I'm glad it didn't put a downer... More

How often do you get to drive a Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera and an Aston Martin V8 Vantage and then get driven by former racing champions in the thrilling Radical SR3 and the legendary Ferrari 458 to demonstrate just what these cars can do in the hands of an expert? For me it was a once in a... More

Bought for me as a birthday present. VERY dissatisfied with the deal. Just like waiting at a bus stop. In the car, out of the car. Having had the Lotus drive at their factory I was perhaps spoilt but I found the thing impersonal and uninspiring. All they wanted was to get more money from you for photographs that were... More

As some may have spotted I originally replied to this review to which our customer responded to our office via email suggesting I had been rude and arrogant in my reply to his points.
