“I booked an Audi R8 thrill , arrived slightly late...”

Written on: 03/07/2010

I booked an Audi R8 thrill , arrived slightly late which was no problem for the organiser, so I was happy that I was still able to have my experience. The walkthrough was entertaining but did not go through the track details at all (circuit in oxford). Git a couple of laps with the instructor first in a Subaru WRX STi, a great stripped out track car, this first showed that the track was a purpose designed track for people on driving experiences, a very short track of 0.75 miles only, and consisted of 2 short straights and loads of slow tight corners so that rookies can not go fast or gain enough speed to enjoy the car's ability, or from the point of view of Vision Motor Sport, limit any stress their cars. It was not looking good, it got worse when I got into the R8, the car was owned by the instructor and not the company, it was like getting into someone else's pride and joy, you had to drive the car with such delicacy that it was dull, I could have driven my own car around that circuit faster. The worst aspects of the drive where the over estimated brakes zones, because they were so far way, i had to break gently when the instructor said, even lifted of then re-broke at the appropriate zone before turning in, I estimate you were told to brake 3 times the distance of the cars braking ability, it was ridiculous! THE WORST PART OF IT WAS, the fact that the instructor had a power kill button, which he used way be for the car was even near it's limit, and was sometimes used mid corner which was dangerous, I once accelerated slightly to hard out of a corner that I could feel the traction control kicking in, which was fine, just had to back off slightly 'EXCEPT' bang, he hits his little panic button and the car goes wallowing off, we all know to power out of a corner, cutting the power is just dangerous. Don't go to these guys, all of my friends have done experiences elsewhere and had the chance to enjoy the car and a decent circuit, here, with Vision Motor Sport, you can't. Avoid. Matt
