“did not even bother going after the poor reviews on here”

Written on: 10/12/2014

I had a red letter day voucher given to me by my workplace, I booked the super 5 car experience for the first week in Dec 2015. I always like to read reviews about any product/services before hand so read all the reviews on here the day before the outing, I was so upset after the reading the reviews as I was really looking forward to the experience it spoilt the rest of that day and in the end I did not even bother going. I have been driving for over 15 years and to have a instructor tell me… Read Full Review

“If driver is over 16 stone don't your waste money!!”

Written on: 06/07/2014 by Kevy1 (1 review written)

My Wife bought me this track day experience as my 50th Birthday gift, yet when I tried to book I was asked what my height and weight was? I told them I was 19st and was then told I couldn't do it in the race or Bmw!!! and only could go on the land rover experience! Yet nothing was explained about these restrictions when she booked it! she wouldn't have wasted almost £200!! they refused a refund so I had to sell for peanuts! Total rip off in my opinion… Read Full Review

“3 supercar experience”

Written on: 22/10/2013

My heart is still thumping. The track is very narrow, and it looks like people are plodding round in procession. How wrong was I? The Chief said he was happy for people to drive fast, that's what the cars are about. But don't lose control. Tyre tracks showed that one person had lost a Ferrari today. I was expecting the cars to be quick, but BLIMEY! I was shocked just how quick, and how tightly they gripped. Ferrari 360 - my first car - the circuit is as tight as a farm track, and it's hard to… Read Full Review

“Complete waste of money!”

Written on: 06/10/2013

A very disappointing experience, due partly to an over-zealous instructor who had far too much input into the drive and was extremely over-critical of my driving ability on the debrief. Additionally, the circuit would be more appropriate for the use of go-karts than performance cars having a very short strait and ridiculously tight bends at which you nearly had to come to a standstill. Clearly designed to restrict speeds and therefore limit wear and tear on their stock. Frankly, I would have… Read Full Review

“Aston and Atom suberb”

Written on: 22/07/2013

My experience drive had been cancelled earlier in the year due to the snow we had in March but this time we got lucky with the weather. The whole experience was good from the booking in, the pre drive briefing and the drives themselves. My first experience was in the Atom and although I'd watched and knew what to expect the initial acceleration onto the track was just awesome. Although things got faster it was easier to adjust to the speeds down the straights and keeping the helmet on at 135mph… Read Full Review

“A waste of money! ”

Written on: 07/07/2013 by MrHerb (1 review written)

I arrived and went in for the briefing, where they state all the health & safety stuff and then talk about the driving experience. The events manager was very professional, and said we should easily be achieving 130mph on the straight! So outside we went to await our 2 laps being driven around in a pro drive wrx subura. We then got told we would be taken round in a.........ford puma as the subura takes too long to strap people in!!!!! I was gutted by this, as I was really looking forward to the… Read Full Review

“Elvington supercar day”

Written on: 28/04/2013

I read reviews about Vision motorsport and it appeared that the supercar track at Oxford is very restrictive. So I booked for Elvington which is laid out on an airfield. i drove the Aston Martin Vantage, Porsche GT3, Audi R8 and the fantastic Lamborghini Gallardo. It was awesome. the instructors let me go once I had done a lap and showed I knew what I was doing, going for the apex etc and breaking before the corner and powering out. They pushed me to floor it and have fun. "Ignore the boards… Read Full Review

“Fantastic day”

Written on: 21/03/2013 by jaswal (1 review written)

I had a brilliant session on the ride and drive experience on 15/03/13. Got to drive the subaru impreza round the track and contrary to other reviews did not find the instruction restrictive but encouraging to do more. After that I was driven around the track in the ariel atom for three laps and couldn't wipe the smile off my face for the rest of the day… Read Full Review

firstly we had the safety briefing then we were split up into groups. my order of the day went- porche gt3, aston martin. lamborghini and ferrari. my experiences are as follows- porche gt3 [name removed] is an awesome instructor, he got the most out of me and the car.he encouraged me to put my foot down. brilliant !!! aston martin v8 vantage the car was dull and heavy, i think the instructor knew this. this was a poor example of probably a great car. it was noisy and i almost asked if a… Read Full Review

“Good time at Vision Motorsport”

Written on: 11/03/2013

I think that the previous reviews posted here are unfair. I found the driving day really good fun. The day started with a brief then we were put in groups to take turns in a Ferrari, Porche, Lambo and Aston. There are breaking signs and cones which I thought were useful. I did not find the rules restrictive, you were able to floor the cars and put them through their paces. I found the instructors professional and friendly. The cars were well used but nothing to take away from the enjoyment… Read Full Review

“do not visit this dump ”

Written on: 25/07/2012 by coaldust01 (1 review written)

Ok where to start. Your not allowed to accelerate past about 2k in first gear when pulling out on to the tiny track. They keep you in third gear in the corners so coming out of the corners you are basically at idle then you accelerate and they tell you to change gear before the v8 and v10 engines start getting into there stride. Bear in mind the ferrari and lambo rev to 9 or 10K they will ask you to change at about 5k. You have to brake a studid distance before the corners aswell. and the… Read Full Review

“Rally Day”

Written on: 29/03/2012 by Martin_Parker (1 review written)

I have just done my fourth full rally day in 3 years with Vision and what a great day it was. Great equipment, great track, great people - just do it, you won't regret it. Whether you're in the Subarus or the Pumas - you'll have a blast. Hand brake turns, 4 wheel slides, over-steer, under-steer you do the lot but don't let the jargon put you off these guys tailor their tuition to your level and I can guarantee that you'll know far more about car handling by the end of the day… Read Full Review

“Avoid Vison Motorsport in Oxfordshire”

Written on: 18/06/2011

Agree with the above. I paid £235 for a half day in a Ferrari 360, Audi R8, Subaru, GT3 and Aston Martin. The Ferrari kept on crunching in third gear and was squealing so loudly on braking it was overwhelming. Quite often you were not allowed to go more than 50% up the rev range before you were told to change gear. You were not allowed to go beyond 2k revs in first gear when starting out. The brake zone markers were miles out - so became useless. Only 2 short straights - in 3 of the cars… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/03/2011

Enjoyed my hours at Vision did the Aston Martin vs Lamborghini Gallardo test. The test run with the instructor driving was in a Ford Puma which was disappointing would have preferred a more exotic car. The Aston Martin went very well, all the gears worked. although there were braking signs we ignored those. the Lamborghini was a joy to drive and you could floor the accelerator on the straight. for a car enthusiast it was very enjoyable perhaps not for a would be racing driver… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/11/2010 by just me being honest (1 review written)

Did porche 911 thrill experience. Well what can I say keep your money in your pocket. The car was a bag of poo. 1st gear didnt even work. The circuit would be more suited to go carts or mini motos. Its tiny less than a mile long. Each lap takes less than 2 minutes. I did 8 laps so 16 minutes total for £130...Wasnt allowed to give the car any stick, the braking markers are sooo way out. I was told to break at the point of these markers but had to come off the brakes or would have actually… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/08/2010

Save your cash! Had a GT3 driving session. The briefing and refreshment room was quite good but that's about it. You turn up, get briefed but warned if you lose the car once, then it's game over. The track is something out of toy town, very narrow, short straight and tight bends. You are not allowed to really get use to the car and at the end of the session the instructor told me that I should try the rally session as you learn about driving and my GT3 session isn't value fir money!!!

Written on: 12/08/2010

My treat was to be the Aston Martin Thrill from Vision Motorsport at Great Tew.
The initial briefing was short and to the point and most of the time was spent by our instructor killing wasps with his Blackberry!
Two laps in the Subaru WRX STi followed, which were quite enjoyable and gave a good idea of the circuit. The circuit was disappointing as there were two quite short straights and lots of twisty stuff - no sweeping bends to allow the cars to stretch their legs. As noted in another… Read Full Review

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… Read Full Review
