I am writing this review at the stage before the event. I purchased it for my partner as a gift. I wanted the Aston Martin because he loves the cars. I have no problem with all that was promised for the experience as it has not happened yet. I have an issue with the Everymanracing company which actually organises it.
I bought the event on a weekend day because the description said that Dunfold circuit only does weekends (due to that it cost me around 20 pounds more compare to a weekday). When it came to the actual booking of the day, first choice I was offered a Friday(!!!). I find that fairly inaccurate and if I´d known that I would have paid less.
Another thing is that I hoped to book a day within 1 month as that is when my partner´s birthday is. Or at least any near date. The first one I was offered was 14th september(!!!). Again if I had known that I would rather buy from someone who can show availability straight away. There was no warning it can take as much as that. And you have no chance of knowing this before you buy. I find that not satisfactory at all.
And thirdly, booking this as a surprise, hoping to make it a surprise I
phoned to book it for him before he actually gets the present but I was asked to send the voucher to the providing company. The voucher my partner has not been given yet and I have no replacement for. It had personal message and everything. I was forced to photocopy it at work which is not great. surely you could create something that the client actually retains for cases like mine. I am sure I would not be the only one. It is a special birthday and there is nothing wrong with making it a surprise.
Oh and one last thing. For the price paid I find quite bad that you have to insure yourself for the driving of the car. I mean for paying of the excess of 2000 pounds in case you crashed one of the cars. I mean, people go there to go mad a little and have fun with the power of the car. Dont tell me that the organising company has not got this fully insured (we are talking about nearly 40 pounds they asked me for!!) Again nothing mentioned when the event was described. I was asked to decide about insuring or not insuring right there on the phone when I was booking. That is quite a lot of money to decide and I was told on the day of the event it will be much more expensive. How is that a choice?!!?
I just hope he will enjoy it and nothing more happens. But I do believe all of this should be included in the description of the event because otherwise you kind of end up discovering it as you go.
