No but all the people i know who have done them say pick a special car, but not one of the hyper cars if you actually want to go at a decent speed.

Friend did one in a aston dbr I think and he was told not to go above 50-60mph...

I drove a gallardo 5-6 years ago on an airfield type track. It was ok but they didnt like you to push the car.

I have a choice of tracks to go on, Stratford (Shakey?) being the closest, I think if I got in one, and they said don't go above 60 I'd get out and drive my own car home! lol

I thought they had a bit of a track at the top end? The PDF I got mentions Stratford upon Avon and I presumed Shakey?

Who is the experience with? treatme.net (also known as driveme.net)? If it's them it'll probably be Seighford Driving Centre, Staffordshire.

I did an experience day with them a while back and chose to drive an Evo which was great fun. The Ferrari etc didn't appeal to me. And they were really slow! Probably because most people were too worried about crashing them Razz The only other car that appealed was the Lotus. That was pretty rapid.

I did one at Shakey, all it was, was a bunch of cones on an empty runway...

Drove an Aston DB9 convertible (boring, surprisingly!) which they didnt like me going down through the gears as I braked

And drove a Ferrari F355 which I so, so want still!

I did one at bruntingthorpe, drove

scooby wrx blob eye - loads of grip and boost is nice

996 911 - lovley car wouldnt mind one as a daily driver

elise - loved it was loads of fun

Ferrari 360 - This was the one i was looking forward to, i love ferrari but the instructor with me was a axe wound, he wouldnt let me boot it, kept telling me smoother is faster, i said yeah but i just want to hear it Smile

Gallardo - was a nice drive and so easy, my mum could drive it! 147 down the back straight

TVR Tuscan - was a beast, cant imagine it being easy to drive fast in the wet. Best instructor of the lot made the day for me realy
