“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

“my birthday trucking experience”

Written on: 26/10/2014

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

“Ferrari Thrill”

Written on: 24/09/2014 by Dclarke589 (1 review written)

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

“fantastic day out at castle combe”

Written on: 21/09/2014 by TTQ225 (1 review written)

When to Castle Combe on 19/9/14 for this experience. Arrived on time got checked in and had sighting lap in Focus RS, shown lines and where to be on track. 1st drive in 997 was 13.30 which was pretty much in time & 2nd drive in R8 was at 13.50, a bit earlier than booked. Both cars fantastic to drive & excellent instructors sat in with you. Up graded hot lap from Focus to lambo gallarda so i could see how it should be done ! All in all fantastic experience and will be doing again. Next time… Read Full Review

“Treble Supercar Drive”

Written on: 24/08/2014 by martise (1 review written)

What a fantastic day!! Got to drive three brilliant cars - Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari F430, and an Ariel Atom, and even got good value photos of each drive, plus an in-car video of every lap from every car (definitely worth paying the extra for!). I cannot praise this company highly enough, from the initial booking over the phone to the experience on the day they have been nothing but friendly and helpful. We felt completely taken care of and felt like we were in the hands of… Read Full Review

“Absloute awsome experience”

Written on: 24/08/2014 by 198Fanning (1 review written)

Fantastic, lived my childhood dream to drive a Porsche... It packed some punch... Wow. My son was very happy too with his Aston db9 + Ariel atom thrill. The only negative was the cost of photos £25 for one is shocking! Would of bought a few if they were £10 each. But brilliant day other than that. … Read Full Review

“Supercar Passenger Experience, Elvington, York”

Written on: 20/07/2014 by BattyHybrid (1 review written)

19/7/14. LIKED. The booking procedures and staff were excellent, and easy. Booking in on the day was fairly straight forward for all three of us for different cars. We all enjoyed our experience and the drivers were all excellent, professional and friendly. Got lucky with the weather ;-) DISLIKES: We all booked in at the same time and were given track times the same for our 4 laps. Unfortunately we all went out at different times which was very disappointing. One which was over an hour later… Read Full Review

“Fantastic truck experience”

Written on: 19/07/2014 by Mrsmetez (1 review written)

Received this experience from my husband for my 40th! Have always wanted to drive a truck, it was my dream. Was so excited I could have cried! Staff we're very helpful from start to finish, was so glad I bought the memory stick to look back on it. my instructor was absolutely fab, and made my driving this truck perfect! (Was especially helpful at helping me humiliate the man next to me in the lorry as I reversed perfect 1st time unlike him!) A victory pull on the horn made my day! Thank you… Read Full Review

“On the whole a great experience”

Written on: 10/07/2014 by montyzigi (1 review written)

I was bought an Aston Martin DBS drive as a gift and I booked into Bruntingthorpe last weekend (05/07/14). Good points: all contact with 6th Gear both on the phone before hand and at the track was a pleasure. All the staff were very pleasant, helpful and professional and I suspect that those at the track had already had a long day by the time I arrived at 3.30pm. The organisation on the day seemed to go like clockwork. My drive happened when they said it would and I did not have to wait long… Read Full Review

“Best 13th Birthday present ever!”

Written on: 30/06/2014 by Scottthomastia (1 review written)

Bought the Junior experience for my sons 13th birthday. How many people in the world can say the first car they drove in their lives was a Ferrari 360.......he can! He loved every minute of it and also really enjoyed his hot lap in the Lamborghini Gallardo! The staff were fantastic and really friendly. Just make sure you take your wallet - you can't really do this experience without purchasing the memory stick @ £35 (so he can relive the experience over and over!) and the 12"x8" photo and CD… Read Full Review

“Drive your dream car with 6th Gear”

Written on: 29/06/2014 by Scubajase (3 reviews written)

Went to long cross drove the Ferrari 458 for 3 laps loved it , drove the Audi R8 for 3 laps loved it !!! Then I did a lap as a passenger in the Radical SR3 race car , that machine is a monster!!! I would highly recommend trying the 6th gear experience to anyone with any interest in cars . The staff are very well trained, the driving instructors are top draw , they encourage you to put the pedal to the metal when it's safe but not too pushy. Get yourself down there have fun, just don't… Read Full Review

“A fantastic day all round”

Written on: 29/06/2014 by scottjanaway (2 reviews written)

A birthday treat from my wife turns into a fantastic day. The sky was blue with some great sunshine and amazing cars to see and drive. No problem with parking and you walk right into the venue to which you can't miss the sight of all the cars, to be fair you would want to drive all of them. Maybe next time, my car booked for me was the Aston Martin DBS, why wouldn't it be, its a dream car for any man. It was an amazing drive with a good instructor, I got 3 laps which is great. Then after I… Read Full Review

“Brilliant day out”

Written on: 28/06/2014 by Pjw1975 (1 review written)

One of the best days out I've had for a long time. Cars of choice were Aston Martin vantage, audi r8 and I did choose the Porsche turbo, unfortunately this was out of order so had the Lamborghini instead. In my mind the vantage was the best, very fast and very smooth handling. The event was run very well and the instructors were execelent, noteably the person whom instructed on the Aston. The one thing I think could have been better prepped was the announcement of people's names whom… Read Full Review
