Overview

This is your chance to get behind the wheel of an Aston Martin and channel your inner James Bond! With its gorgeous styling, luxurious interior and one of the best engine sounds you will hear, it is no wonder that this car is a staple in the 007 franchise.

After you have registered and received your welcome, you will then be given a briefing from your professional racing instructor. After which, you will get behind the wheel of the stunning V8 Vantage Martin for up to three laps/miles of the track.

The person driving the car will be required to sign a disclaimer accepting liability in the event of damage to the vehicle. The driver will be given an option to purchase damage waiver cover when booking to minimise their financial exposure should there be an accident. Drivers are under no obligation to purchase this optional waiver. Full details are available at the time of booking.

Please note, the Blyton, Dunsfold and Castle Combe locations are available for an upgrade fee.

Just a couple of extra minutes on the in car briefing could really enhance the experience. Explaining the circuit, what the different coloured cones mean about braking points turn in and apex points would make the few laps you have more satisfying. On my drive you were just getting the hang of the above as this was only explained on your drive and then it was all over. Also having a minute or two to understand and enjoy the amazing car you are sitting in would make big difference to the experience. I understand they have to get people through efficiently but it does feel very rushed. Having said that it was fun and memorable and the instructor was friendly and helpful.

While the idea of it is nice, the reality was different. It was bought for me in January 18 and I eventually managed to get it booked in Late November. Emails not being replied to, dates not released yet, try again next month etc. Then the extra money that i daren't tell the person who spent a relatively large sum of money on my gift. Extra £25 For the location, extra £25 for £5,000 insurance waiver. Once there, the selling starts, sitting laps, fast lap, vdo, photos, extra laps, other cars... They warn you too that you may have to wait around in the cold for up to three hours, so bring a chair.. Eventually I drove my Aston Martin around the track for two laps. You can't 'race' it as so many others that are quicker or slower are on the track too. The 'experience' itself was over in minutes. Sort of fun, but with the travelling, hotel (my choice, i know) etc, the 'event' was such an anti climax. Lots of others there were excited and had booked plenty of different cars so please take my review as just a recipient of a gift.

Tilly - Customer Support - 19/12/2018

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave your feedback. Having looked into this for you I can see your first contact with ourselves was not in fact until July of this year and we responded to you within a day of your first email. I can also see we then booked you in for your experience in August. The supplier Car Chase Heroes tours the country and so only has select dates at each location and this is why your booking was made for November. The track you selected was a premium circuit and hence the supplement fee, set in place by the supplier and not something we can erase. Never the less, I would like to thank you for your feedback and I will pass it on in order to help us improve our services.

Overall disappointed.

Activity Superstore - Customer Support - 07/08/2018

Hello, thank you for taking the time to submit your review. I am so sorry to learn of your disappointment and I will certainly pass on your comments to the track in question. We would like to know a bit more about your experience as what you describe certainly does not sound like the customer service we expect from our experience providers, so if you could email reviews@activitysuperstore.com it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
