Great truck drive and John P was a superb instructor and spent time with me explaining everything both to do and not to do ! Especially as the conditions were not favourable but he made it safe and a great experience- many thanks.

Had the pleasure of driving the car transporter at car chase hero’s….. been a childhood dream for years and Gary made the experience a memorable Moment to never forget!! He was an amazing instructor having years of experience in the game and he was also an all round spot on bloke. He was calm, energetic and thrived for you to do your best. Highly recommend the truck experience and Gary as your instructor, not only will you have an amazing day but you’ll be taught by the best bloke for the job

Told us all the extras to do on the day. Rachael who did an fab job sorting the time slots and making sure it ran smoothly. And to the instructor Gary from Arizona, such a credit to car chases team. From the talks we had and the laughs a true gent! Thank you for giving the opportunity to show off my skills. This should be brought to the Anglesey Circuit.

Amazing day with car heroes. Welcomed by Gail at reception who offered us to extend our Truck experience for an amazing deal, which we did. We were also offered another bmw high speed exp for as little as £10 each!! Gail was full of information and very chatty! We were then greeted by the lovely Rachel who was amazing at helping us get our time slot for the experience. She ensured we were happy at all times! Thanks Rachel you were great! Last but not least my mate Gary from Arizona..... WOW, WOW, WOW what a guy!!! He put me at ease and gave me so much confidence behind the wheel of that truck. Thanks for showing me the way and being an absolute best instructor today! You are a credit to the team!! Will visit this company again, you guys should look in to starting at anglesey circuit. Thanks again to all!!!!

Took a truck driving experience, another one ticked off the bucket list. The car transporter was huge and terrifying. Gary was the instructor, the man is a genius. The whole experience ran like clockwork from the minute we arrived, very well organised. Gary got me into the vehicle and familiarised me with the controls (same as an auto car), in minutes. Off we went, with Gary giving loads of support and generally made the whole experience great fun. Gary you are a true star, and thank you Car Chase Heroes for a really well managed and fun day out. Will see you again.

My dad recently did a truck driving experience at Wattisham Airfield, and my sister and I went along with him. What an experience! The dude Gary who was his instructor made the experience what it was - he made my dad feel so comfortable, had great chat with all of us, let my sister and I come along for the ride, and was so kind and personable. Thanks Gary!

I was gifted this experience and was very nervous before hand. We arrived at the driving area for the Truck early and were greeted by the instructor Gary from Arizona. He was super friendly and chatty, he put me right at ease and talked me through how easy it was to drive the truck. I cannot sing his praises enough, he definitely added to the experience with plenty of laughs and useful tips on driving the truck!

Excellent experience. 5 Stars. The instructor Gary Thornton was superb. Very friendly and professional. Clear and concise instructions made handling the car transporter a pleasure. Lots of time in the vehicle, at the wheel and performing manouveres. Gary had a wealth of experience and was a brilliant teacher. All the staff were friendly and approachable, super focussed on making sure everybody had a great time.

I did a solo truck experience with Gary, it was absolutely pouring with rain the Cornish sunshine was most defiantly not going to make an appearance! I most defiantly felt for Gary the poor chap had just had to deal with a moaning old mare for issues that were absolutely nothing to do with him and not his fault! nevertheless he kept a professional persona and his chin up. Once he had offered her some advice we jumped in the cab and my experience began, he made sure I was happy with everything before we set off, I can honestly say it was the best experience, I have always wanted to drive a truck and potentially in the future gain my HGV License but never thought I could until now! I can’t thank Gary enough he's an absolute legend! and a credit to Car Chase Hero's :) Also thanks to the dude in the Silver Bmw for the lift down the track and back ;)

Drove a car transporter at Abingdon at the weekend. It was a brilliant experience, great fun and Gary my instructor was excellent. Gary was very friendly and very encouraging, making the whole thing great fun. I got to drive and reverse the trailer through various obstacles and little side roads. I was amazed at how easy it was to drive. Thanks Gary, you are a top bloke.

Don't normally write reviews but thought this had to be done. I got the truck driving at sandtoft as a birthday present and had a fantastic experience. The instructor l v garv was a top bloke and made it very relaxed atmosphere , also gave me advice on funding to get my license which im seriously considering. Hopefully the other half will get me the gt40 experience next will definitely be using this company again

Was booked for the truck driving experience,this was an amazing opportunity to drive a car transporter with Khaled the driving instructor who went above and beyond after I had done my original booking and he gave up his time to allow me to do more manoeuvres in the truck. What an amazing guy and credit to the crew! Also drove Corvette c7 which again was a great experience. Highly recommended and will definitely be back!

Had a great time today at Tockwith driving the car transporter. Good fun reversing into a bay and slaloming the cones! Thanks to Khaled for his relaxed and helpful style. The general organisation of the event is very professional and I would definitely recommend it. I will definitely go again.

Absolutely fantastic experience. Everyone involved was friendly and made for the best time. Truck instructor deserves a special shout out, really nice chap. Only negative, not enough signage.

From when I was a young girl in school I always wanted to be able to drive a lorry. Finally got my wish for Christmas 2021, due to illness and recovery, I managed to book it for 31st July at Abingdon, Oxford. It did not disappoint. Had booking for 1.30pm, arrived at 1.10pm, managed to get through the registration pretty quick, not much queue for the truck so was in the cab 2pm for my introduction with Garry, what a lovely friendly guy who took the time to explain about the controls and what he wanted me to do when driving. 20 minutes went by so fast, really enjoyed my time driving, manoeuvring, reversing and parking, was even more pleased when he marked me 99 out of 100, if I ever fancy a career change, lorry driving is a definite maybe

Had a wonderful experience driving the big Volvo truck at Abingdon airfield on 30th August 2021. The only problem was the lack of distance to drive it hence only 4 stars. This was explained that it was because Tom Cruise was filming at the far end and didn't want anyone encroaching near the film set. I would like to point out that Danny my instructor was absolutely ace. Thank you.

This experience was a gift from my husband which was fantastic. All staff, from the time of arriving to leaving were professional and friendly. I never thought at my age I'd drive a truck but I did - a big thank you to Malcolm, the instructor for his patient & friendly approach.

This was a fantastic 70th birthday present from my family. I had never driven anything larger than a 7-seater petrol car before, so I was a little nervous about driving such a large truck! My instructor at Abingdon, Neil, was very reassuring and confidence-inspiring and under his guidance I had a wonderful 20 minutes experiencing what it is like to be behind the wheel of an HGV. Ok, so the facilities at the airfield were basic, and timings were not accurate, but most people were there to enjoy themselves, the staff were helpful, and the atmosphere was great. Thank you.

WOW! What an experience!! I bought the Duo experience for my mother for her Christmas gift. We had a great time on the duo experience, I believe we had an instructor called Sean, lovely Irish man, as our tutor, he was patient, and a good laugh. There was a small delay in getting us into the truck, and the guys couldn't apologise enough. I would recommend these guys to anyone!

Wow, myself , my friend & her hubby all done this for our 50th, a present from my hubby....from start to finish the day could not of been better. Everyone was so friendly & proffesional. The instructor , a young Irish chap ( can't remember his name) was so nice with a great sense of humour... The venue was very well organised..I paid on the day for the hubby to do a high speed drive in the lotus as well, which he loved, and we finished the day by doing 2 laps of the circuit ..which , again was very funny...and the driver, again made it more fun with his sense of humour. We will be returning and would recommend to everyone.. The only thing I will say , is pay the extra £5 so whoever your with can sit in the cab with you as you do go right across the other side of the airfield..my hubby videoed me driving inside the cab and the instructor let him hop out and video me doing the reversing...money well spent...

Was given this experience as a Birthday gift. always wanted to get behind the wheel of a large truck. This did not disappoint I had the time of my life I didn't want to end, It was great and gave a look at the world of a truck driver. A huge thank you to my Instructor Paul had a lot to think about , and will look at truckers differently . so I recommend all to go and try this beast.

What a fantastic day my hubby and I had at Caerwent yesterday. Thank you for a wonderfully personal and friendly experience ... every member of your staff was helpful, courteous, friendly and had plenty of time for everyone. I drove the large Juggernaut with Jeff .... he was absolutely brilliant!! My hubby drove the classic Cobra and had an amazing drive around the track. Then I finished my drive as a passenger in the Atom ... what an experience that was!!! Thank you all for a brilliant day .... and I can highly recommend Car Chase Heroes to everyone.... what a fantastic bunch of people you all are. Thank you xx

Now in my early 60s, I had always wanted to drive a large lorry and was over the moon when my wife bought me this as a gift for Christmas. Having opted for the duo truck package (Optimus and the modern cab with trailer) I was not at all disappointed. Optimus wasn't easy to drive (manual non-synchro gearbox and a very heavy clutch) but was great fun. The Volvo unit with attached trailer was much easier and comfortable and I was rather chuffed to have not knocked any cones over during the various tasks given by the instructor, e.g. reversing, manoeuvring through tight spaces, weaving etc. The 20 minutes allocated to each truck doesn't sound like long, but it was enough. The venue was the only thing that let the experience down as the facilities were very bare and basic - though we were advised of this ahead of the event - with everything being in the open; not ideal on a very cold morning. The staff were terrific - friendly, polite and enthusiastic - and the whole event was well organised, though it did seem to take a while to get started (we were there for an 08:30 start) as the vehicles (including the cars) had to be warmed up - couldn't they have done this before the punters arrived? In all, a great experience and a well organised event.

Had a brilliant experience driving the truck with the expert instructor Neil. Would recommend to anyone wanting to just have a go at something a little bit different. Not my usual Sunday activity put purchased as a 60th birthday present and loved it. Thank you to everyone that was involved in making today a memorable one, from the cup of tea in the cafe to Neil in the cab, just great.

what a fantastic day from start to finish, the guys on the truck driving experience were brilliant. Special thanks go to DOBBY for his banter and background music I would highly recommend the day to anyone . many many thanks

I opted to drive the truck as a test to see if I would like to get my hgv license. Dobby, my instructor was absolutely amazing. I explained the reasoning behind me doing the experience, and he put me through my paces - slalom between cones, reversing and blind reversing! I must have done well as he scored me 96 out of 100! He was very good and very happy with my driving! I’m now looking to upgrade my license when I can afford it, or convince my employer to train me! Thank you Car Chase Heroes and especially thank you to Dobby

What an amazing experience! From start to finish the customer service we received was brilliant. We were able to have a great laugh with the boss at Abingdon as well as the guy that took us out in the truck. The actually experience was a superb but the service we received was second to none. Now get the double decker bus in and we will be back in a shot! Thank you for a great day all Naomi

I was given a truck driving experience by my husband for Christmas. I am in my 70's and I enjoyed every minute of it, mainly because of Adam, my instructor. He was patient, kind and very knowledgeable and made me feel a real sense of achievement.

I booked the truck experience for my hubby as an xmas present which he finally got today - was an awesome pressie & whilst I was there I went as a passenger in the Ariel Atom - That is hands down the best thing I've done - it beats any roller coaster ride you can ever go on & the only problem is because it goes so fast it's over in a flash - was awesome though & would recommend it to anyone for both truck & car experience :D

Hi Guy's, just wanted to say what a great experience the Truck driving was at Abingdon this weekend. Never driven anything so big before (only 7.5 ton or car & trailer) and to be let loose on a 12.7ltr Volvo Truck with 40' trailer was fantastic, once the instructor realised I kind of knew the basics and could reverse o.k. we went through the whole course a few times even inventing new manoeuvres to complete. Instructor was brilliant and I was very pleased with the "perfecto!" mark he gave me, cheers. Anyone doing this experience, I would recommend taking the extra 20 minutes and make it really worthwhile. 10/10*

I visited the Throckmorton circuit today to drive the truck, what a great day and experience.The staff were brilliant and patient.Ian was my guide around the course and was great.My nephew and niece also had a go in the atom and really loved it.

Go for it!!! I bought my husband the truck drive for a birthday prezzie so was hoping it would be good. It was everything you want...fab staff, great vehicles and excellent time driving. There are drinks and hot sandwiches available for a good price too incase you book the early slot like we did. It was well worth it there. I did actually ask if there was any spaces for my young son to have a go in the lightning mcQueen car and they gor him straight on. I have no criticisms about this place at all and would definitely recommend it to you. *****

Had a great time driving your truck at the Abingdon site, Martin was a great instructor. Only thing that spoilt it was the waiting as no one really new who was next in line to go more communication needed . Great experience and would recommend 100%. Many thanks.

The time slots were a joke. 5 people all booked for 10:30 (one of them was me) and it was 12:00 before I got my turn. Luckily the instructor,Martin, was brilliant and was able to get me into the spirit with his great guidance and instruction. Fascinating experience aside of the poorly organised time slots.

Had a fantastic time. Your trainer is a credit to your company, very friendly and knowledgeable. Would definitely do it again.
