Having seen all the negative feedback in this review page, I feel obliged to balance the reviews with something positive as I have just returned from the experience today!
I booked the GroupOn 2 hour Allstars Driving Academy intro to drifting. I've done other track days (single seaters, M3, supercars, rallycross), and this seemed like a good way of improving car control skills at limits you're not encouraged to enjoy on track!
Having done several experiences at numerous tracks, I am comfortable that these things can sometimes be a bit rough and ready, and rely on the people attending to listen carefully and be where they need to be when they need to be there. If they don't, things can over-run. I was "lucky" - booked at 9am (so no previous session to delay us) and 4 cars + 1 reserve for the 24 of us. They processed each of our sessions very well - I was grinning from ear to ear after the first donut with the instructor and feel completely adrenaline exhausted now!
Yesterday I read these reviews and was really worried but happy to ignore them and make the best of it. I needn't have worried. Thanks to Caan (apols if mispelt) and his team for a truly unique experience - I'm sorry if machinery and scheduling have let other people down. It is not dangerous and seatbelts really aren't necessary (but provided) - Brands Hatch would not endorse it if it was.
Great fun for £60 on GroupOn - would consider it worthwhile at full price. As with all race experiences, MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR TIME IN THE CAR AND LISTEN INTENTLY!!! :-)
