“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

Bought the Atom experience for my dad for Fathers Day. We booked for Elvington and had a brilliant day, the staff were great and was deffinatly value for money. Was a bit dissapointed that I couldn't buy a ride in the Radical though, mainly because the driver of it was rather good looking ;)… 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

“Ariel Atom gig certainly not a Clarkson Experience”

Written on: 16/06/2014 by alvisprizzlee (1 review written)

Signed in did'nt expect a major sell job on insurance waiver. Pretty Girl banging on about cone and mirror damage. £3+ per minute .Huge Rip off .Did'nt get a decent drive of the car because of all the Cones calming the track,hence the cone insurance. Over in a flash ,a complete waste of money .Go Karting instead on a good track ,a much bigger thrill . Did'nt see one car driven in anger, only the Boss man hot lap driving in a Yellow track car. Plus point was the fanatastic organisation . Well… Read Full Review

“Porsche 997 turbo and R8 V8”

Written on: 15/06/2014 by Sh010272 (1 review written)

14th June Elvington. Firstly what fantastic customer service. From the guys and girls at check in to the instructors top quality friendly unassuming. Next the cars... Perfectly presented. The drives... I had 4 laps in each and was given just enough instruction to get the most from the cars. I drove both cars as fast and hard as I could have hoped. I was encouraged by the instructors without intrusion I.e they let me enjoy the vehicle. In summary... The R8 is a great car and I have now… Read Full Review

Thank you so much for the most fantastic time :0) This was our son's 13th birthday gift (Oct'13) & it was so worth the wait!! Oh my goodness, he loved it!!! He drove the Lamborghini & Ferrari....

“DISAPPOINTING MANAGEMENT CUSTOMER SERVICE”

Written on: 03/03/2014 by krissr (1 review written)

Booked for my sons birthday, after an hour and a half drive to our location we arrived, no issues checking in, paid £35 for a memory stick as my sons grandad (who was too poorly to come) wanted to see the experience. My son went went in with a driver and did the 3 laps, absolutely loved it! We were very excited to see the video footage! Used the machine onsite as we were adevised to check memory stick before we left. The footage was upside down, we were told the camera inside the vehicle had… Read Full Review

“Excellent all round.”

Written on: 23/02/2014 by olivialewis (1 review written)

While visiting the Longcross Proving Ground yesterday my husband and I were impressed by the high standard of the venue. Greeting us on arrival a smiling, enthusiastic lady checked our documents and directed us to the registration point. Here a team of glamorous assistants checked his documents and driving licence. The food & drink outlet was well-managed and the toilet facilities were very clean. We were transferred by a pleasant guy to the track where we met instructor, Ceila and the huge… Read Full Review

Brilliant day this weekend, couldn't have asked for a better experience. Staff made the experience all the more enjoyable - extremely helpful, professional and service with a smile! Cars were good too - even though Audi R8 not available on the day had a great time in the Porsche and Ferrari. My son came with me and was so taken he booked up on the day and had a session as well. We both had such a good time we have booked up again for next year - can't wait, Lamborghinis here we come!… Read Full Review

“A Great Experience for my son but a few tweaks needed”

Written on: 05/11/2013 by Hla1969 (1 review written)

We booked this for my 11 year olds birthday and it was a fabulous experience for him to drive a super car at his age. The instructor was friendly and made him feel at ease and he had a good 20 minutes if driving time reaching speeds of approx 80 mph on his last drive which he thought was amazing. A few little tweaks could have been made for instance the car we booked had broken down but we were not told this at the time of registration it was only when his name was called to get into a… Read Full Review
