“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

“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

“Great experience superb cars”

Written on: 10/08/2013 by SteveD1963 (1 review written)

My wife bought me this as a birthday gift. I picked the Aston Martin v8 and the atom. We arrived early for check in which was very quick and then went out to the track. First is a lap in a range rover to show you where the track goes and where to brake and turn in. This is actually very helpful for when you get in the quick cars. First drive was the Aston Martin which was at the time booked. A quick chat with the instructor and your off. First couple of laps he was showing you where to brake… Read Full Review

“Track day blast”

Written on: 18/10/2012 by Andy-G (1 review written)

Arrived to a reather cold Blyton circuit on saturday and my only real critism is.. IF IT HAD.. been raining or colder there were no real facilities to keep people from the worst of the elements Was impressed with number of staff on hand (incl catering truck) and their professionalism; well organised & structured so not a lot of hanging about.. The car of choice (in this instance an ariel atom...put in on your "bucket-list"..) was a total hoot..!!! and the instructor allowed me to "express… Read Full Review

“A Great Day's Activity”

Written on: 04/10/2012

The 5 of us would made up our group were unanimous in saying it was a great day at Elvington on 29th. Sept. with 6th. gear Experience. The organisation was efficient and friendly, with plenty of staff on duty to answer any query and get us into the appropriate vehicle with very little, if any, delay. The instructors were extremely good, at the same time making sure of safety but allowing us to put our foot down when required. Good viewing area for spectators, friends etc. Those who came with us… Read Full Review

“Excellent staff and good selection of cars”

Written on: 01/10/2012 by glenc (315 reviews written)

I went to the Longcross track for a 40th birthday gift to drive 3 cars. I was impressed with how well run it was and also how friendly and pleasant the staff were. There's quite a bit of waiting inbetween cars, but I dont think this can really be avoided as you have to wait for your turn on the track. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because I found it very hard to get a 'flying' lap on the course as there were such varied drivers out there. So, just as you start getting up to… Read Full Review

oh he let you use the gears, great! How do you expect to drive a manual car without them. This review does not sound very believable, like it's been put there to take the emphasis off of the negative ones.

Positives: -greeted on entry, everything explained. -managed to get a free upgrade (not sure why!) -friendly and helpful staff -driving experience was amazing, & instructor was good too. Negatives: - Booking your day is just the start, they offer every 'extra' imaginable to squeeze as much cash out of you as possible! - My voucher was for a weekday experience, when calling to book, I had to pay an extra £25 to use my experience on a weekend, even though they don't open on weekdays! my… Read Full Review

“Great day out”

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

After the poor summer to have gone out on the first proper day of decent weather was an absolute Godsend. Orientation lap in a Focus, three fast laps in each of the Porsche and Atom, followed up with a hot lap in the Radical (well worth the £15 upgrade). Super day out. Everything is very well organised (my only minor gripe is that they could do with megaphones to call out names - they were running exceptionally early, and from the cafe area I was unable to hear my name being called at all, so… Read Full Review

“Great Trucking Experience”

Written on: 05/05/2012 by JonRook (1 review written)

As an initial introduction to driving an HGV, this experience was brilliant. Dominic, the instructor, was cool and calm and gave just the right amount of advice, leaving me to make decisions and find out what the truck did on my own. I was able to take things at my own pace and didn't feel under any pressure - unlike on the fast car experiences which sometimes leave you feeling a little deflated and as though you haven't made the most of the opportunity. With the amount of power available, I… Read Full Review

“One happy boy”

Written on: 03/05/2012

This was my 14 year old's Christmas present and he wasn't disappointed. He was more than happy with his 10 minute drive in the Lamborghini but because of another car on the track at the same time he wasn't able to get a clear run. Maybe a good thing:-) I felt that another 5 minutes would have been more appropriate for the money. His highlight was the hot lap in the Ford. The grin was stitched on for ages afterwards. The driving time could have been increased a little, but the afternoon as a… Read Full Review

“Junior Driving Experience”

Written on: 23/04/2012 by rachelt0312 (1 review written)

We booked this as a birthday present for my friend's Son's 13th Birthday and were all really excited. We were impressed with how professional the set up was and the cars all looked amazing! The staff were all very helpful and friendly and everything was very well planned and thought out. My only small negatives about the day were that the driving experience was supposed to be 10 minutes (which isn't really long enough and makes it feel like a bit less value than we thought)but we only got… Read Full Review

“A Teen's Dream”

Written on: 22/04/2012 by stfc0112 (1 review written)

I bought the teen track attack for my nephew which included him driving a Ferrari and a hot lap driven by a pro in an Aston Martin. The whole experience was fantastic and he had a great day. The location we chose was Surrey and the setup there was fantastic, staff were all very friendly and helpful. As this was the teen driving we were driven by minibus to a separate track where the teens driving experience takes place. My only disappointment about this setup was there were no real… Read Full Review

“Great car experience”

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

The date itself was a brilliant and sunny so just the perfect weather conditions for a track day experience! Choose the Lambo Gallardo and missus chose the R8. From the moment we got there to the time we left the whole event was managed very well and really smoothly, credit to the staff there. All the staff were really friendly and knew what they are talking about, from just talking about the day to what the car could do. Firstly it wasinto the gangster mobile range rover to be given a quick… Read Full Review

“Fantastic day!”

Written on: 28/07/2011 by robhuntly (1 review written)

“……Had a great day at Longcross, Chobham on the 23rd July driving a nice selection of cars but the one that truly stood out was the Ferrari 458 Italia, that is something else. Would be good to see the new Noble added to your fleet! I own a M12 GTO 3R and not much compares to it (other than that old 458 you have!) Keep me posted on your stock and events and well done to all your staff, what a great professional set up.,….” No complaints what so ever other than an extra lap would have… Read Full Review

“Was an excelent day. I had a Ariel Atom driving...”

Written on: 11/04/2011

Was an excelent day. I had a Ariel Atom driving experience bought as a present. We had a 11.45 time slot but arrived early and were allowed to drive straight away no hanging about like other events I had been on.

The car was excelent, track reasonably challenging. Added to by the fact that the intercom to the driver failed on the first lap so all instructions were provided by hand signals!!!

The video option is a nice reminder of the day showing your laps. The only thing I would say is the… Read Full Review
