It was great and will be back on the next trip. Unfortunately, the route description was not so good and without asking, we would never have found it. Included in the price was a video about one lap. But this video was not inclusive. It cost about 50 euros extra. Still a great experience

A truly unforgettable experience !!!!!!

Thank you to all the team at the F3000 experience day. From the initial meet and greet the whole event ran like clockwork! Once you put that race suit on and walk outside to view the circuit and the pit lane you feel an amazing sense of excitement. Watching the cars being prepared starts to switch you into driving mode. A comprehensive briefing gives you the tips and safety measures to enable you to get the best drive possible (if you listen that is)! If you don’t listen and ask questions you may not have the best experience as mistakes cost you time. The team ensure that you are seeded to enable you to drive to the best of your ability! Instruction, first class and once the team are happy with your performance... OFF you go. I was able to drive my whole session without being swapped over and with only two of us behind the instructor we got up to optimum speed and made full use of the braking points and racing line. Only one issue, I did not want to get out of the car ! Ace !
