FAQs

Q. Do I need a driving licence?

A. With the exception of the Junior Drive Experiences (who need to produce a proof of age), all participants must hold a full, valid driving licence with no serious convictions. You must also be able to drive a manual transmission car. If you do not have a licence a voucher can still be purchased and you can be driven around any of our circuits by a qualified professional Instructors/Race Drivers.

Q. How long will I be at the venue for?

A. Typically we ask each customer to allow an hour and a half at the venue for a drive in one Supercar and a further 45 minutes per extra Supercar chosen to drive.

In the confirmation pack sent out to each driver before an event, it explains how we do require each customer to arrive a minimum of 45 minutes before their drive to allow for registration and safety briefing. It is very important that you arrive at your allotted time promptly as we will be briefing groups of customers every 30 minutes.

Q. What happens on the day?

A. When you get to the venue follow the signage to the car park and the signage to the Registration centre. On arrival at our Registration area we will welcome you and ask to see your driving licence. You will be asked to sign an event indemnity form with all your details including address and next of kin details.

After registration you will introduce you to our safety and welcoming Instructor for a briefing. On the day we recommend a sighting lap which will typically be in a BMW M3 . The Briefing Instructor will arrange this for you. It will save you “wasting” one of your Supercar drives trying to learn the circuit from scratch.

Q. Can I drive more cars on the day?

A. Providing we have availability, there is always an opportunity to purchase extra drives on the day but please be aware, to guarantee a drive in a specific car you’ll need to book in advance through this website or call us on 01332 411223. If you bring family and friends they can also participate. Please ask a member of staff or visit the sales desk on site.

Hotlaps are also available to participants and their guests in our ariel Atoms, and we also have family drift laps in our BMW M3, awesome fun!

Q. Can I bring friends with me?

A. Yes you are welcome to bring as many guests as you like.

Guests can also participate in a Supercar Driving Experience or be driven at high speed around the circuit by one of our Instructors – known as a ‘Hot Lap’. This can be paid for and arranged on the day of the event or can be purchased directly via our call centre. We have card facilities at every event. If you are a guest and would like to drive then please do not forget to bring along your driving licence.

Q. What happens if I damage a supercar while driving.

A. You are liable for the first £5000 of any damage you cause which is beyond the normal wear and tear to the vehicle.

There is an option to purchase a Collision Damage Insurance Waiver which will insure you against this, however, if the damage is a direct result of your reckless, negligent or deliberate action then you will remain liable for all of the damage to the vehicle regardless of whether you have the Collision Damage Insurance Waiver or not. The cost of this waiver is £30.00. All vehicles have in-car footage and can be viewed by the management at any time on the day of your drive as required by our insurers.

Q. What happens if there is bad weather?

A. The weather should not affect any of the driving days, but if extreme weather persists (e.g. snow, fog or ice) the day may have to be cancelled for your own safety. You will be given as much notice as possible and will be offered another date. We text and email and will try and call the customer in most cases. Please check for updates via your text and emails. Where we have your mobile number we will call you. Please ensure that you provide us with a correct and current contact telephone number at the time of booking.
