“it was boring to be truthfull. and very small straights ”

Written on: 27/04/2015 by cf111444 (1 review written)

Well got there and wanted to pay the extra insurance but card machines not working. In the end I paid twice. Then its time for the supposed to be very exciting car driving. Well your not alloud to feel the real response of the cars and if u do give it foot to the floor on the very small straights then you get told one more time if you do that again you won't drive any longer and the instructor will take you around. Plus you will get told every few seconds on the very small 4 lap alowence that… Read Full Review

“Birthday Surprise”

Written on: 12/04/2015 by thepottery (1 review written)

WOW, what an experience from start to finish.... I booked this as a surprise birthday present for my husbands 40th and I can say it was a huge success. From arriving at Longcross Studios we were impressed with the standard of the whole thing. Very well organised, a lot of staff on site who knew exactly what they were doing, with clip boards, walkie talkies to relay information quickly so people were not waiting around too long for their super car experience. You checked in first and were then… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/04/2015 by Kevindjenkins (1 review written)

I can't thank the team enough for my amazing experience today. The day was amazing and every moment from start to finish was top notch. Myself my Wife and son had an amazing day at Longcross Test Track and I'm sure I will find a way to do it again! The whole experience from start to finish was great and every person from the man at the gate to the person on the car park was friendly smiling helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Looking at the photos and Videos I am still smiling from ear to… Read Full Review

“Very Disappointing Day”

Written on: 24/03/2015

Booked a junior driving experience for my 16 year old son at Rockingham with 6th Gear. I was extremely disappointed with the whole thing. Rather than get to drive around Rockingham circuit the 6th Gear team set up a few cones in a car park at the rear of one of the grandstands. You get 15 minutes in supercar going around at snails pace with an instructor...my son was devastated. Then as part of the young drivers experience package you get a 'hot' lap with your instructor.....only the hot lap is… Read Full Review

I purchased a junior track day for my sons birthday, having used buyagift.com previously and was very pleased when used at donnington. However when we arrived yesterday for his Audi R8 experience I was shocked when I was shown a small car park for his experience and lastly forget the hot lap 1 minute around the car park joke. … Read Full Review

“Lambo”

Written on: 07/03/2015 by qnFlanagan304 (1 review written)

When I got into the Lamborghini every was good, until i was instructed to change gear really early which did not let me enjoy the full experience of the cars power. 3rd gear was crunching a lot. I did not enjoy the young lad telling me how to drive even tho I had been driving longer than the kid next to me. also when I accelerated past 80mph he kept saying change up a gear then said slow down but he slowed the car down for me which i thought was bad customer service… Read Full Review

“An experience not to be missed”

Written on: 24/02/2015 by JohnoGlossop (1 review written)

I've been experiencing the 6th Gear driving days for a number of years and the professionalism of the organisation is exceptional. From the initial registration to the moment you enter the cars, the operation runs like clockwork. When you receive the call to take your driving experience, the professional drivers ensure that you are fully conversant with all aspects of the Supercar and encourage you to enjoy the moment. You are taught how to drive these superb machines and gain the maximum… Read Full Review

“Junior Lamborghini Experience Elvington”

Written on: 11/02/2015 by PerlaReid365 (1 review written)

Good value for money. Great venue, well laid out with catering and good views of the cars and track. The Hot lap was in a Ford Focus RS, (was expecting an ST) so that was a real bonus. He was out in the Lamborghini for a decent amount of time and was beaming from ear to ear when he finished. If you can impress a 17 year old that much, its must be worth the money! But to be fair he now claim to have had his first 'driving lesson' in a Supercar! Pity us when his driving licence arrives… Read Full Review

“Extra Charges on the Day - Rip Off”

Written on: 02/12/2014 by neUnderwood234 (1 review written)

We bought the R8 experience for our son as a Birthday Gift. As we live close to the track, getting there and getting booked in was easy although the queue of people was a little off-putting. Worst of all - my son got to the booking in desk and was getting pressure sales to pay £25 to cover possible damage to the car! You are having a laugh! 'Here's your birthday gift son and by the way, you now need to pay £25' The £25 is not refundable should you manage to go around a race track for 15… Read Full Review

“Single Supercar Blast”

Written on: 01/12/2014

I was disappointed with this event as there were 2 others who went with me. You are given a demo run in a car driven by an instructor around the track and then you get to drive 2 laps with an instructor in your chosen car.It would be better if you can drive round the track with an instructor just to get a feel for the car and track followed by 3 laps not 2 this is not enough. Also I disagree with their "No Spin Rule" which states that if your car goes into a spin your session is automatically… Read Full Review

“Not value for money”

Written on: 17/11/2014 by Birdie1972 (1 review written)

My Dad paid £125 for a 15 minute Truck Experience. We live a 45 - 50 minute drive from the venue and arrived nice and early for her time slot. We were expecting a 10 min briefing, and 15 minute experience. My Mum is a 64 year old professional but only every driven small cars. When we arrived the booking in was simple. The weather wasnt great and we were out doors pending our slot (rather cold, as we came unprepared as were we unaware of the settings).. Mum got called quicker than her… Read Full Review

Had a super time driving the Daf truck - a bit awesome but with the very good advice from my instructor very enjoyable - actually managed to reverse and do the chicane without too much trouble - even with members of my family in the truck with me who were much more worried than me!Am I at 80.05 years the oldest driver to have passed with 92/100?! Very enjoyable and thank you. … Read Full Review

“Poorly organised. Longcross proving ground disappointing.”

Written on: 04/10/2014 by Donalds469 (1 review written)

VERY busy on arrival (Saturday) for experience. When signing on, I chose not to take excess premium insurance ~ if looks could kill !! It was not even the smiliest of welcomes up to then. And then the long wait for the demonstration lap ... followed by an even longer wait for the real drive. They just called out the names of the drivers they wanted. No hint or clue as to who might be up next, if you were in the next 5 or 10 or 15 drivers? Hopeless. Drive itself (Lamborghini) was fun BUT ... you… Read Full Review

“junior driving experience”

Written on: 28/09/2014 by zqSchwartz496 (1 review written)

Went today and it was the first time doing anything like this. It was excellent from start to finish. The staff are very friendly and it was all very well managed. My son had this for his 16th birthday and would highly recommend already planning his next drive. The only down side is the expense. You cannot take pics they do it for you and it's £25 for one pic and £35 for one pic and a disc of all the other photo's. There not silly they know what there doing as all kids are going to want the… Read Full Review

Went to Castle Combe on 19 September 2014 for my Ferrari experience and it was fantastic. All the staff from the checking in girls to the driving instructor were amazing and so friendly and helpful. Everybody was so organised and efficient. I will definitely be booking again. Didn't like the extra costs - damage waiver insurance and photos. For the price of the experience I would have thought the insurance would have been included… Read Full Review
