Car Chase Heroes - Abingdon, Oxfordshire
Sophie from Customer Service, September 2019
I took my partner to the Abingdon track on Saturday and what a day he had! Lee originally booked in for the Nissan GTR and paid to upgrade to drive the Dodge Hellcat however when we arrived at the track unfortunately the GTR had broken down. However the Car Chase Heroes staff were very helpful, they apologised for the fault which was obviously wasn’t their fault and offered Lee other available cars that still had time slots available and he needed up choosing the Audi R8.
Once the cars had been re booked we headed over to the briefing where Alan explained all the safety as well as the dos and don’ts on the track and in the car. After that we met Wez the general manager and he took us out in the VW Golf for a sight lap. This was very helpful for any driver who hadn’t been on the track before as he showed us all of the breaking and speed up points and also how to signal faster drivers to overtake you.
Then Lee only had to wait a short while before entering the pit to drive his first car which was the Dodge Hellcat which he found out was a left hand drive which he had never experience before. He said this was a very powerful car, it just took some practice getting used to the gear stick with his right hand. Next, he drove the Audi R8 was a paddle shift automatic car which Lee had driven before and enjoyed, but did say when he changed gears it took a seconds longer for the car to speed up.
Lastly, Lee had a high speed passenger ride in a BMW 3 series and I paid a small fee to join him. I was very scared before getting in the car however the instructor made sure we were all strapped in and made a joke that he had been called many names for driving so fast! It was extremely enjoyable being drifted around the track at a fast speed. I would definitely do this again!
Bring extra pennies with you on the day so you can either buy extra laps, upgrade to any of the premium cars or to have a sight lap around the track.
