“Unorganised and poor value ”

Written on: 10/04/2017 by anTodd1952 (1 review written)

Bought my son Lamborghini driving experience, very disappointed. Total chaos- originally booked rockingham but this got cancelled 2 days before due date and changed to a month later in leics. No explanation given and lied thru their teeth to say they tried email and call earlier to cancel (they did not). On arrival we were met by a bunch of kids running the venue with not much idea of anything. Got angry when I tried to come closer to take pics and asked to step back otherwise photographer… Read Full Review

Written on: 07/03/2017 by tzMurphy-Alt1971 (1 review written)

What a waste of a morning. Awful weather- not their fault- but hopeless organisation. Hanging around in wet. Useless staff not giving information. Waste of time and money… Read Full Review

“Ariel Atom 300 thrill, Rockingham.”

Written on: 25/11/2015 by Emeryx15 (1 review written)

Booked to go to Rockingham in a party of 4 people to do the Ariel Atom 300 thrill. As an overall summary we were all absolutely disgusted with the whole day from start to finish. When we arrived to sign is, we were greeted by a team of rude, blunt and condescending 6th gear female employees who had no interest in customer communication or satisfaction. They were rude, extremely poor communicators and it seemed they were more concerned about getting us signed as quickly as possible with no… Read Full Review

“DON'T BOTHER WITH THIS COMPANY”

Written on: 16/09/2015 by anDoyle431 (1 review written)

Got a voucher to use with this company & after spending two weeks sending both emails & calling to make a booking I just gave up!! They seem to not want the business. If they can't be bothered to contact you to take a booking & make money from you then I can't believe they would be any good in any other matter. LEAVE WELL ALONE… Read Full Review

“it was boring to be truthfull. and very small straights ”

Written on: 27/04/2015 by cf111444 (1 review written)

Well got there and wanted to pay the extra insurance but card machines not working. In the end I paid twice. Then its time for the supposed to be very exciting car driving. Well your not alloud to feel the real response of the cars and if u do give it foot to the floor on the very small straights then you get told one more time if you do that again you won't drive any longer and the instructor will take you around. Plus you will get told every few seconds on the very small 4 lap alowence that… Read Full Review

“Very Disappointing Day”

Written on: 24/03/2015

Booked a junior driving experience for my 16 year old son at Rockingham with 6th Gear. I was extremely disappointed with the whole thing. Rather than get to drive around Rockingham circuit the 6th Gear team set up a few cones in a car park at the rear of one of the grandstands. You get 15 minutes in supercar going around at snails pace with an instructor...my son was devastated. Then as part of the young drivers experience package you get a 'hot' lap with your instructor.....only the hot lap is… Read Full Review

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.

Written on: 03/12/2014

The cancellation cover is not expensive in comparison to loosing your experience. cancellation cover is available for all sorts - from hotel bookings to flights. If you chose not to have the cover you cannot then slate a company for something that is not their fault. I take out cancellation cover where possible to avoid looking like an idiot and loosing all my money

“Disorganised and usless”

Written on: 18/09/2013 by Ysannee (2 reviews written)

Earlier this year, my boyfriend and I spent the day at the 6th gear experience. I watched and he drove. It was very disorganised. He also bought from the desk a USB to record his driving experience, but on one of the drives, the power cable fell out and didn't record anything. The instructor said there was nothing he could do. I was appalled at the fact he bought that USB for the main reason of recording his drives, which he didn't get to do. After complaining about his drive not being… Read Full Review

We paid for are nephew to have a so called driving experience. He had to pay £25 insurance on the day, A lot to a student. Loads of hanging about. Then 5 min in a car (wow).

“6th Gear Experience- Audi R8 "thrill" at Longcross, Surrey”

Written on: 26/04/2013 by Lucasdude (1 review written)

This was a gift from my brother for my birthday last September. I wanted to wait until the weather was more predictable. Regardless, it rained anyway! Here is the itinery as it happened. 8.45am arrive and sign in. 8.55am 1 lap very slowly in a Range Rover with an instructor driving and 3 others. (approx. 5mins) 9.10am 2 laps with an instructor. (approx. 7mins) That's it. There were other people driving other cars at the same time, and you can only overtake if the car in front allows. Most… Read Full Review

“BOOK THIS AT YOUR PERIL..........”

Arrived at my track day at 1.01pm, left at 1.39pm-induction and experience completed!Duped into the £25 (extra insurance). Left feeling very hard done by; far to many cars on heavily coned and confusing track. Having raced various tracks before Elvington was by far the worst (if you could call a coned aerodrome a race track!)£35 for a photo just sumed the day up, staff very polite apart from pressured into the £25 for insurance… Read Full Review

“Driving was terrible”

Written on: 06/04/2013 by Gsxrbill (1 review written)

Really disappointed, was not a proper track, wasn't aloud to adjust my seat to feel 100%, the straight had a Slalom on it to prevent you from reaching any type of exciting speed, the Lamborghini had to be left in 4th gear not allowing you to drop a few gears and feel the real power. £25 insurance fee is a rip off that should of been included on the package… Read Full Review
