“Track day disappointment ”

Written on: 23/10/2016 by Speedfreek (1 review written)

My Son and I purchased a track day from 6thgear at Castle coobe circuit which we went on 21October 2016 . We were really up for on the day as the weather was fantastic , but that was about all that was .
We were to be there at 08:45 to be ready for our first drive to be at 09:30 .
We were heavily pressurised into taking out insurance at a cost of £25:00 each as the guy at the desk stressed that there was in excess of 20 cars out on the track and the risk of damage was far higher for which we would be liable foe £5,000 .
He wasn't far wrong , it was so busy with ques of people waiting to be called , all seemed to be very disorganised and hap-hazard .
We got to drive our desired cars but not in the order that they were in on the list .
The real annoyance was that there were so many cars on the track at any one time that many were just cruising around so if you were a fast driver like me , you were often held up by slower traffic I front , which when you have only three laps it's not what you want , ( I drove at 40 miles an hour on the motorway to the venue !!)
6thgear had booked so many people on the day that it was detrimental to the enjoyment of the customer , I heard other people speaking of this too .
Photographs were for sale at £25:00 which we thought was excessive .

Some good cars at the track and the Instructors were all very helpful .
To Summerise , Not worth the cost , at least not on this particular day , although probably would be on a quieter day .
