Great experience

Purchased this for my hubby as he's always wanted to do this. The guys were great and really helpful and we'd definitely do it again maybe myself next time.

Mind blowing experience

Must do for any formula 1 enthusiast. It's actually pretty easy to drive these cars as they are power limited. Still u can reach 0-100 in 3.4s. Will definitely do it again
