Hi All -

Suggestions needed please - we want to get a "driving experience" present for someone who doesn't have a car - I really enjoyed the Jonathan Palmer day, but that is a bit pricey at £570 - anyone done something great in the racing/rallying field at a reasonable price ?

Cheers, thanks, LJ

loads of them at brands, silverstone, thruxton, oulton park, etc... starting from a mere £100 !

depends where you are based, best value IMHO at Thruxton

go to each circuits web set and check it out....

Thanks Sundeep - I have done all the web research, but was hoping for something a bit more specific than that with personal recommendations -

I know that some days look great but reading the small print you pay £250 for 9 laps and being told not to push it - that is not VFM in my book - so I would rather do 3 hours in a RWD Escort on gravel....

Cheers, LJ

I have done a race day at Brands and thruxton - both were excellent tracks - but i agree, some of the cheaper offers are just that - cheap! In my experience - we had a couple of laps with a pro driving, then some laps in something hottish with instructor sitting alongside, then 10 laps in a formula ford - the ff was rev limited, but at Thruxton, on the back straight 100 mph was easily achieved.

The hottish car when i did this was a MG Maestro ! Things have moved on since then i hear.

For something totallly diffeent - what about the tank driving days ? Just a thought.
