WHAT OUR CUSTOMER'S SAY

  • "I did the Ferrari F430 driving experience on Thursday (6th July) and I knew that the Ferrari would be fast but didn't think it would be that fast! I really enjoyed my experience & the Knockhill staff & instructors were very nice & found them very helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed driving the Ferrari (I'm a Vettel & Ferrari Formula 1 fan) & what an amazing opportunity. FANTASTIC!!! Loved every minute of it, I would come back & do another experience soon "

  • "I was lucky enough to be given a Ferrari driving experience voucher and what a fun experience it turned out to be. There is a cafe/restaurant to have a bite to eat before the event and I was in a small group of 3. First a safety briefing and helmets fit. I found having glasses it was difficult to get them back on with a good fitting full face helmet and there is a tendency for then to mist up a bit with the helmet on, I did wonder if an open face helmet might be an option for glasses wearers. Friendly relaxed instructors put you at your ease. Next we went out to the track for a series of laps in a Racing Honda Civic with a lot of instruction on lines and driving technique to prepare you for the Ferrari. It's also fun watching the other drivers from the pit wall. Then on to the Ferrari 430 a stunning drive with huge amounts of power again a great patient instructor making it a fantastic experience. This is a FUN FUN FUN experience if you’re reading this and not sure the only thing I can say is just do it you won't regret it."

  • "Family chipped in for my special birthday - 4 laps familiarisation driving a Honda Civic Type R, 2 laps by the Pro driver then 6 laps driving a Ferrari F430 coupe - paddle gearshift. Put this on your bucket list. The car is so brilliantly balanced you might even believe you are a talented driver. And the soundtrack... fantastic. Need I say more… "

  • "I was lucky to have the Ferrari and Honda Type R driving experience as a Christmas present. As a relatively conservative driver this would be a slightly nerve racking experience, however my worries were unfounded. The process was to have five laps experience on the Type R before driving the Ferrari, must say the driving experience was fantastic and the instructors were very patient and informative and my confidence was increasing after every lap and the speeds got faster and faster round the twisty circuit, the feeling was fantastic. The Ferrari was a great drive and very addictive. One regret is that I had a big breakfast prior to the drive and due to the high speed cornering I was lucky not to make a mess of the Ferrari interior. All in all it is great to see how fast a car can go around corners and have so much fun and still feel safe. Thanks to instructor Craig. P.s. The site cafe is very good..."
