WHAT OUR CUSTOMER'S SAY

  • "Good fun, great experience, would recommend. Thank you to all the staff we met."

    D. Stewart September, 2017
  • "I was impressed by the friendliness and professionalism of your staff. This calmed any trepidation that I was not going to make a complete fool of myself. 70th birthday present so I was slower than I once would have been to get my act together. The Civic was exciting and I was definitely left wanting more. I had never been in an E type before and rear wheel drive was a distant memory for me. So it was a different experience to the Honda and the torque out of the hairpin was amazing. Loved the experience and bored people about it for days."

    J. Aitken September, 2017
  • "I bought my boyfriend a Jaguar E-type driving experience for his birthday and he loved it! We travelled up from Liverpool and stayed for a few nights in Edinburgh; we had a lovely trip and finished it off with his driving experience! It was something a bit different and we would definitely recommend it!"

    Emma W. April, 2017
  • "We had a wonderful day and can only thank all staff for making us welcome and making sure our day was enjoyed to the full by all and will be happily remembered and reminisced for a long time. A special mention must be made to Kirsten who organised laps round the track in a Ferrari at very short notice. I appreciate she had no warning but organised this very quickly. I would also like to thank the driver who took me out in the Honda Civic but I have forgotten his name in all the excitement, Craig in the Ferrari and the owner of the E-Type Jaguar, these people should be highlighted as they made our day so memorable and exciting. If I have missed anyone I apologise but we are all still buzzing after Friday. We have done similar track/fun days with other companies but they do not come near to the high standard and professionalism we experienced on Friday and the friendly way we were treated by all staff."
