Thinking of getting one of those groupon 
Supercar and Sportscar Driving from £30 




To drive 3 laps in a Lamborghini or Ferrari its £39.




Is it worth it?




Just been reading reviews, some good some bad about, waiting times, queues on the track, and not being able to really go over 80mph.

If its at North Weald Andy then it will be a laid out course with cones as there isn't a proper track there. This is where Bob has organised sprintdays in the past.

So is it worth it 3 laps in a supercar for £39?

Yeah tbh I wouldn't bother unless it was a proper track plus the surface at North weald is poor as it goes from Tarmac to concrete

Even though £39 is cheap, you won't get the full experience of the supercar at north weald but for a bit of a laugh I'd say why not.

True, or his cars and they wont let you have that much fun while the are sitting in the passenger seat.

In my experience those thing are always a let down where you spent more time registering, signing forms, getting organised and talking about the cars / driving than actually doing it.

Just my opinion..

I hear there restricted via a map on these sort of days aswell, so you don't get full potential out of the car.

How true this is I don't know?

Its true and the people that sit in are normally bellends who think everyone can not drive. 80% could probably outdrive them. They tell you to slow down or dont rev above a certain rpm. Like you say now its probably done via the map. But like everything the other 20% probably could not handel a push bike let alone a super car
