The Car

Carroll Shelby was a legendary American car racer in the late 1950s, but his true skill shined as a gifted car designer who created some of the best performance-based American cars beginning in the mid-'60s. He continued to design until the day he passed away in 2012. In fact, he had been working on the 50th anniversary edition of the Ford Mustang when he died. His car designs are as beautiful as they are powerful and factory stock versions of his cars will blow the doors off most of the competition.

Just like Tobey Marshall, you now have the chance to take to the track in this thrilling car. Liveried just like his car from the 2014 hit film 'Need for Speed', unleash the power for the V8 monster and leave everyone in your wake!

At 3 sisters, Wigan for my father's Day present. Due to problems with Dom's Charger I was offered a drive in the SpeedMustang . As soon as I got in the car I recognised the instructor from somewhere. He really encouraged me to push the car faster each lap and looking at the video he enjoyed it as much as me. Turns out it was the legend Barry Lee. What a great bloke and a mega car. Great day

What can I say……….A fabulous day, having booked to drive 4 classic Fords, I added another car once I arrived and had a great experience. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful, and one of the instructors turned out to be the legend that is Barry Lee, what a day, many thanks and I will see you again.

Just returned from great day out at Tibenham. Initially booked a 3 Mustang package, that got postponed due to Covid so got this new date. Two days before arrival got email saying two of the three not going to be available. Not very pleased, unable to change date as had booked accommodation around it. Was offered an alternative car and went ahead as planned. But this gave me an opportunity to rethink. So on arrival I asked for all the laps in one car. Total of 12 laps in the Speed Mustang 2008 Shelby GT500. Best decision I've made. Two reasons. It gave me the opportunity to get really used to the car and track and secondly it avoided a possible hanging around between 3 separate drives. Was there much of a delay??? I have never moved so quickly ( until the car that is) Booked in at first checkpoint, I was early, but that didn't matter. moved immediately to detailed booking in, insurance etc. I was offered a free sighting lap as well. Went outside to wait with a small crowd. Went to a quiet corner and loaded up the YouTube briefing. Got 10 seconds into it and my name was called. Went to front of crowd waiting and sat down to wait for sighting car. Just got myself onto chair and my name was called again. Got into Subaru car and was driven 1 lap of circuit to prime me. Got back to base and I went back into my little corner to listen to briefing again. But again I got called forward to get into the gt500. This all took less time than time to write this. Slight exaggeration but not much!!! Then experienced 12 laps of great driving. Well I thought so!! Barry Lee was great, really helpful and encouraging. If your a confident fast driver make the most of it, if not Barry will bring the best out of you. If you are not confident, DO NOT worry. The only downsides...... The 12 laps went by in a flash. 3 laps would have been miserably short. The lap distance seemed very short. Hopefully that's just because of the speed I was going!!!! Also perhaps it all went TOO smoothly and fast. I felt like a VIP being rushed through the process. But on the other hand I wouldn't have wanted the waiting around for 3 separate drives. Customers are never happy. Would I do it again? Course I would and expect the same rapid service!!!! Thankyou to all concerned even cancelling 2 of my cars. I think you accidentally gave me a better experience.

We visited for my sons 8th birthday on Sunday 4th October. I just wanted to say thank you for such a brillIant, well organised day. Even with the Covid measures and restrictions everything seemed to run very smoothly and the staff were so friendly (especially with the rubbish weather!). An extra special shout out to the man (apologies I don’t know what his name was) who was coordinating all the cars and for making my other younger son feel special and included too. Archie and Charlie had a great day and are telling everyone about it! Thanks again.

Offered at fantastic price of £5 per lap!! Really great as complimented my choice of the Mustang 350, a real classic! Car was lhd and automatic so not the same driving experience as 350 but great comparison Loved the look and theatrics of 'Baricade' although like Transformers it is the trucks that I love (enjoyed experience in Maximus Prime) But great experience with well organised and pleasant staff, nice instruction
