"A brilliant day all the teaching/coaching was done behind the wheel. It was great fun you could go seriously quick with encouragement from your instructor. The high speed run with the instructor topped off the day for me!! Im saving from my next visit."

"Got the handbrake turn perfect into first and fully sideways on the way out, worth the visit just for that!!"
