Had an absolutely fantastic time, due to all the staff. Booked in very quickly by extremely helpful girl on reception. Went off to the 'battle bus' to have helmet fitted, the guys there were great, very... More

I paid for this myself as it was a personal dream of mine. The whole Silverstone Complex and Staff is are fab. Quick briefing about how to drive and navigate around the circuit followed by 10 laps behind a car showing you the racing line. After that was 20 mins of full on fun (obeying the rules obviously). If you... More

The “Hypersonic Experience” was really cool. Firstly, it’s not an F1 car, but probably as close as you’ll ever get to ride in a car with similar characteristics and speed. This goes 150 mph, whereas F1 cars can reach speeds of up to 200 mph; however it’s still incredibly fast, especially sitting so close to floor. Overall, I was impressed... More

My boyfriend wanted me to give him another single seater experience for his birthday as we went two years ago and he really enjoyed it. It is good value for money -- better value than just sitting in a fast car for a couple of laps while someone else drives! They have 10 minutes on the track with a safety... More
