A great gift idea for friends, family or work colleagues from just £79!
Our 30 & 60 minute driving experiences offer great value option for getting behind the wheel of some amazing sport cars & supercars, on real roads! We’ll be running selected days for these experiences from various locations in the South West.
We’re offering an alternative to track/airfield based experiences, where you get to try our amazing cars in their intended environment – on the road! We’ll take you on a route of mixed roads so you can see how each car performs on the road, free from crash helmets, and get time to actually know the car rather than a quick blast round some cones on a baron airfield!
Simply purchase a voucher online for the 30 or 60 minute experience of your choice, we’ll send you a personalised e-voucher by email, then use the voucher to book your slot on one of the dates advertised, alternatively if you know what date and time you would like to book, then click on the car under your preferred event date.
For a small additional cost we can also send you a printed voucher in a luxury gift box, if you prefer. Simply select this at the checkout.

What does the experience include?
After booking your slot in advance online, you’ll arrive at the selected venue to be greeted by a member of staff, and go through a quick sign on process, which includes licence checks, ID checks and to sign our T’s & C’s. Details of the day, and required documents will be sent in advance by email.
There will then be a short introduction to the car you are driving and controls you’ll need to know, which will take approx 5-10 minutes. We (driver + member of staff) will then set off on the open road on a pre-planned route around the start venue, where you’ll get approx 20 minutes for 30 minute experiences, and 30-40 minutes for 60 minute experiences, of driving on mixed roads to experience as much from the car as possible.
When we return there we be a short de-brief, sign off and photo opportunity, before the experience ends. This will be approx 5-10 minutes.
