“Not allowed to change gear”

Written on: 07/05/2016 by Callicott (1 review written)

Just got baxk from castle Combe race track where i got to sit in a 300bhp Ariel atom. Got told to change up through the gears until in 6th gear at about 40mph.....not very accelerating :-(
The instructor told me not to change gear at all as it had enough power. Frankly i found this very boring and not what i would call "driving" the car.
At one point i went to feather the accelerator coming out of a corner in a nice line with no issues and noticed he was squeezing the second brake pedal he had on his side.
All in all, i dont think this could be classed as driving the car. It might as well been an automatic!
