Made famous by Hollywood superstars and premiership footballers, the Lamborghini Gallardo is a car fanatic's dream, and now you can drive one! First have a safety briefing with a qualified motor racing instructor, explaining how to drive on the track and pointing out all the twists, bends and straights. Then comes the best bit: strap into the driving seat for 10 minutes driving the amazing Lamborghini Gallardo around the track. Finish with presentation of a certificate to take home as a special memento and show family and friends.
Selected weekdays and occasional weekend dates. Dates fill very quickly, so please allow several weeks advance booking notice.
Minimum height is 4'10'', maximum is 6'4''. Maximum weight is 18 stone. Minimum age is 11, maximum is 17 and all participants must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. No previous driving experience required.
Driving may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (e.g. ice or heavy rain) which would make driving at speed dangerous. Contact is made if the experience is cancelled for any reason.
Driving time is 10 minutes. Expect to be at the circuit for between an hour and an hour and a half, including briefing and driving laps. Please arrive 45 minutes in advance of the booked time to ensure a prompt start.
Briefings are shared with the group. During demo laps there are up to three people in the car. Driving time is held on a one-to-one basis with an instructor. A large number of people take part at weekends.
Parents or guardians must remain on-site during the whole experience. Children must be closely supervised at all times. Other spectators are also welcome. Dogs are not allowed. There's an American-style diner with a view of some of the circuit.
Wear trousers, a long-sleeved shirt and flat-soled shoes. A helmet is provided.
The Lamborghini has a paddle shift on the steering wheel to change gear - perfect for beginner drivers. All instructors are Association of Racing Drivers Schools (ARDS) qualified. When booking expect to be offered the choice of buying a collision damage waiver at £20/£30 additional charge. Please note there is no obligation to purchase this optional waiver.
The look on my sons face when he saw the supercar he was going to be driving in was worth the money alone. We paid for the in car video and pictures and although the pictures weren't very good, we were offered a partial refund and a free high speed lap in a car with someone dressed as The Stig which put an even bigger smile on my sons face. After driving 150 miles back home, we realised that we didn't receive the in car video we paid for but again the staff (namely Shannon) bent over backwards and moved mountains to find the missing video and promptly post it to us. A true testament to their customer service skills. So even though the odd things didn't quite go to plan, the service received ensured my sons birthday treat wasn't spoilt in any way and I would highly recommend this driving experience to all.
On a freezing cold early Feb morning we went along to the track for our two boys (11 & 15) to drive Lamborghini's. They really enjoyed it although it all seemed to be over too quick we still have the photo's and video to remember it by. They both thought they had driven really fast but when we played the video it showed they had both only reached 50 miles an hour, but its an experience they will both remember for a long time.
Booked this for my 13 year son Adam for his birthday. Had to change the date as he broke his collarbone but RLD were very helpful about rebooking, minimum fuss. Adam had done driving experiences with Mercedes including 4x4 so he was able to really make the most of his time in the Lambo - up to 70mph on the straight! Loved every second of his 12 minutes in the car. All staff and instructor were lovely, obviously know their stuff and kept a very busy track running smoothly. Adam was so made up afterwards it was worth the journey. Recommend you get the in car film as well as the photos (£45 for the two), didnt think this was extortionate for a once in a lifetime thing. Only trouble now is how do I improve on that for his 14th??
This was purchased for my sons 13th birthday. He thought it was the best thing he had ever done. He can not wait to go back and do another driving experience.
I bought this experience for my brother's 16th birthday which he absolutely loved!! The vehicle was automatic which helps these unexperienced young drivers and the instructor who was in the lamborghini was really friendly! My only wish was that he had longer then 10 minutes driving time but overall a great experience!
My son totally enjoyed the experience and has been full of it ever since. His instructor was fantastic & made him feel at ease. The photographs will be something that he treasures forever!! If you're stuck for gift ideas for a 12 year old boy, this is the perfect solution!!!!!
Just like it to be a wee big longer driving time
Fabulous day. The instructors were very friendly and helped to make my day so enjoyable. I was the only girl doing it but a i didn't feel left out.
Being only 13 this was my first opportunity to drive, but to drive a Lamborghini was awesome
My daughter Phoebe was able to drive this car and she enjoyed it so much she immediately wanted to book again.
It was a birthday present for our 16 year old son. His favourite car is a Lamborghini and to get to drive one at 127mph was a dream come true for him. Even the ride in the Hummer to get to know the circuit was great. Thoroughly recommended.
A very well organised experience that our 13 year old will remember for years to come.
The look on my 15 year old son's face when he opened his Red Letter was topped only by the look on his face after the most invigorating experience of his life. I watched, as the yellow Lamborghini prowled its way into view. The slick outline of its fairing and manicured bonnet looked even more spectacular as it caressed each corner. The exhilarating passion manifesting behind the wheel, had to be my son. His life-long dream to drive a super-car had finally come true as he roared past me, his eyes fixed on the long stretch ahead with a brilliant smile cemented to his face as he reached a top speed of 110 miles an hour. It was then, when I saw him jump out of this spectacular car, with a grin from ear to ear, that I realised this was the best present I could have given him. A friendly welcome from the staff and the expertise of a professional instructor were faultless, not to forget the drive itself, an experience that should be shared by everyone!
The day was fantastic!! It was welll organised and well worth the money. Would definitely recommend!!!
We picked this as a 13th birthday present for our son, he was a bit apprehensive but so excited, once we arrived and he saw all the cars he couldnt wait. He said it was the best thing he had ever done and wants to do it again! The instructors were really thorough and encouraging. I would recommend getting the memory stick which films the in car experience, great to watch it all from the drivers perspective afterwards.
Everyone is friendly and know what they are doing, that's why the day is so good. No matter how fast you go you'll wish you went faster!
Absolutely brilliant! My son (or his 12th Birthday present) had the most amazing time - he said it was the best day of his life! We know it was great because he actually couldn't speak when he got out of the Lamborghini!
We had booked our son to drive a Lambourghini. We found all the staff were wonderful as my son was a little nervous at first. They all took their time and had many words to reassure him. They were all very professional and friendly. He finally got in and had a few laps round the circuit at high speed, which he thought was 'awesome' and 'cool'. We will be back! Many Thanks.
My son received a Junior Lambigini Drive for Christmas and we booked it for the begining of Jan just after his 14th Birthday, so didn't have long to wait for the day. We arrived around 2pm (he was booked in for 2.30pm) and was promptly taken through to a room and was shown a video on saftey and what the driving experience entailed, this lasted 10/15 mins then my son was taken around the track in a car with an instructor and two other children who was on the driving experience as well and was told how to drive around the track. When this had finished we thought that he would have been then going around in a fiesta for the practice laps as stated in the Red Letter Day infomation BUT that has now stoped and they all go straight into their choice of cars. My son managed to reach a top speed of 100mph in the Lamborgini, not bad for a 14 year old first time driving. He was out for 20/30 min altogether. His words when he got out of the car was WHEN CAN I DO THIS AGAIN? That said it all.
We arrived 1hr before our timeslot, there were so many people but we were welcomed like we were the only ones there. There had been a accident on the motorway and a few people had turned up late and time slots had to be adjusted, I must say It did not effect us in any way, the staff were professional, happy to help and extremely patient, as parents there was always something to watch and time flew! Good cafe which was reasonably priced and clean toilets. Theres nothing more entertaining as a parent to watch your child fly round in a sports car, what a day!!! Money well spent, he cant stop talking about it, the best present ever apparently!! Many many thanks.
