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. Next, enjoy a high speed passenger ride in a saloon car. 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 to £40 additional charge. Please note there is no obligation to purchase this optional waiver.
My son loved his day & special memories were made we all had a lovely day & staff were very helpful
A birthday gift for my 15 year old son... absolutely loved it great experience for him..... the track was a bit small and the time went quick but really enjoyed it.. took a few photos myself....
To watch my 14 year old son drive a Lamborghini Gallardo is a moment i'll never forget.It was a dream come true for him,the facility,experience and choice of cars available at the track were excelllent and the staff are fantastic they really make the experience perfect for your child and i thought it was great value when you watch and see how happy the junior drivers are.
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.
We booked this experience for our 12 year old son as a Christmas present last year, he had the time of his life! His instructor was brilliant and very quickly put him at ease, which we could tell because he started on his first lap fairly slow and got quicker each time, loving the fact that he was able to overtake others! He loved it so much, he has changed his Christmas list for this year which now includes another drive. This is a top present for boys and girls,who all came off the track with huge grins on their faces!
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!
The staff were friendly and professional cars were amazing facilities at the event were great the food in the Diner was lovely. Great day, great experience
I have never seen a bigger smile on my sons face before.
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!!!!!
We really struggled to think of a gift for our 12 year old this Christmas. He's sporty but not into football. He isn't into Playstation or X box either. In desperation I looked at tickets to see Top Gear - forget it: too young and a ridiculous waiting list. Closest thing to looking at the best cars though, driving one!! I couldn't believe it when I found a company that would actually allow a 12 year old behind the wheel of a Lamborghini. His face when he climbed out of the yellow soft top was worth it all. The staff did their very best to put all the nervous kids at their ease and the instructor was the right side of cool. A great day for all the family to come along and watch. He's planning his next visit already...
We did this for Christmas for our 14 year old son. He was overwhelmed by the gift and even more overwhelmed on the day. It was well organised and very enjoyable and worth every penny to see his enjoyment from the experience. Would definitely use Red Letter Days again.
Best day of my life and great memories to remember! Hopefully do another one soon but in a different car.
My twelve year old had an experience most adults would love to do. Although he didn't drive with the instructor in the Fiesta, he did have about ten minutes in the super car which he loved!! A little bit longer would have been better, as their confidence grows with each lap completed. Now my eleven year old daughter can't wait for her birthday to have the same experience!
Description is inaccurate tho! On the booking it says he gets a lesson in a fiesta or similar. That didn't happen. It was a short 'sales' briefing then the 10 mins in the Lamborghini. The staff were very good with him and he thoroughly enjoyed driving the Lamborghini - the first car he has ever driven.
Great experience, would have liked it to be for longer! And possibly on the main track insead of around cones on smaller area. Altogether a good experience, my 14 year son loved it!!
My Son really enjoyed his Lamborghini driving experience. Not bad for a 12 year old to be able to say his first taste of driving was in such a fabulous car.
Excellent afternoon, great cars and very helpful and reassuring staff. Nothing was too much trouble, I'm now ready to book another event, but this time I'm including myself. We even met Tim, a Police officer from Road Wars who was a racing instructor taking all the kids around the track, his hair is always perfect even when returning back after a blast around the track! The American diner is good value for money, the drinks are well priced and you dont feel you have been ripped off for a couple of drinks, again the staff were friendly and even though it was our first time at this event we were able to have a laugh and a chat with them. The trackside photo is reasonably priced for such an event with the staff not rushing you to pick your photo, they then adjust it for the best picture possible. Overall a great afternoon that I can recommend to all.
