Girlfriend of the year

Bought this experience deal for my partners 21st. When I first told him about it he was full of nerves, though once we got there, the staff were so friendly and helpful that those nerves soon turned into excitement. My partner had the time of his life and is already talking about going back with a few of his mates!

Hi Simona Thanks for the feedback, will pass onto the staff. Glad we could turn his nerves into excitement and look forward to seeing you back again soon. Maybe try the Single Seater race car next time. Thanks, Andrew @ Formula Challenge.

Everyone Should Do This

The whole experience was fantastic with staff who were so great. The course was great, the instructor was top notch and the car was fun to drive. There is only one disappointment that the Leaderboard still, after a month has not been updated with my placing so my mates still don't believe my time. Craig did reply to my e mail stating that they were having problems with the page, but apart from that, the experience is something everyone should do.
