On a recent business trip to the UK, visited Silverstone and wanted to experience the track. What better way than driving an Aston Martin Vantage on Silverstone's National circuit? My instructor, Andy provided lots of guidance on the circuit, braking, acceleration, gear selection, turn-ins, etc.. He helped make it a very rewarding experience - thanks Andy! Had some very fun...

Great experience day! I chose the head to head and managed to drive a Ferrari F430 and Aston Martin Vantage through the national circuit! The instructors were great and the whole experience is very well organized.

As a Christmas treat with a difference I thought my husband would like a drive around Silverstone, we weren't sure what car he would be driving, but the experience was more important than the car.

My son did the Formula Silverstone as part of his 21st Birthday. He loved it from start to finish. The one thing he did mention is that he didn't get many clean laps in as there were so many slow cars on the small track and they only allow you to overtake on the 2 straights. However, it never stopped... More

Very well organised, the 20 min briefing was a good way to learn the track and techniques used to handle the car. Decent amount of time in the car and I felt 8 laps gave adequate bang for buck. Friendly and helpful instructor. Don't bother with the in car video. I paid £35 for this upfront beforehand but ended up... More

The instructors were really nice guys, but having done a lot of this type of experience, I can tell you that this one runs like a sausage factory. They're very keen to keep your driving within the realms of not much more than a Sunday Drive in order to be able to file the next bunch of people through 45... More

Did the eight lap experience here and wow! Very friendly staff and well presented pre-drive briefing. The cars clearly speak for themselves - F430 - but the total experience of driving around the iconic Silverstone F1 track was just amazing. If you do this, my best advice is to focus less on achieving a decent speed or lap time (come... More

Got bought this driving experience for Christmas. I picked the Ferrari 430 over the Aston martin v8 vantage. The day was longer than I thought. Driving experience was booked for 12noon, didn't finish up until close to 3pm. The queue for the in car video was ridiculously long, you need to queue prior to getting in the car & pay... More

I drove the Aston Martin Vantage and Ferrari F430, and I have mix feelings about the experience. The guy that did the initial induction seemed friendly enough, but after the briefing it felt like we were rushed. I hardly had enough time to get my seating position setup properly, before we did our laps then get off again. I know... More

We went for the open wheel experience, which feels like a once-in-a-lifetime thrill but remains quite affordable given the quality of the cars, the instruction and the chance to actually lap at speed. While you're only really "racing" or twenty minutes, it's more than enough time to test your nerves, feel what it's like to go flat out into corners... More
