FAQS

Are all cars available?

Yes, but all cars are not available on all days. Cars need maintenance and some have other racing commitments so always check your desired car is available on your chosen date.

Are the cars insured?

Yes, but there is a £5,000 damage excess that is payable by the driver if the vehicle they are driving is damaged in any way whilst they are behind the wheel. You can self-insure yourself against this excess payment with an optional £25 damage waiver (available in extras or on the day). This is a non-refundable payment. If you do not decide to take the insurance we do have to take credit card details on arrival. These details are destroyed at the end of an event if no damage is caused and no charges will be made. Please ensure you bring a credit card on the day if you are opting out of the damage waiver. This must be a card with a minimum £5000 limit. The damage waiver protects the driver against the £5,000 insurance excess. Please note that there will be other drivers out on track at the same time as you. 

Are there always instructors in the cars?

Yes, other than the Racing Driver package as we can’t be with you in the Champ car!

Are your cars the real ones?

No, our cars are very close to the originals used in the Films but, with the exception of General Lee, they are replicas of the movie cars. The GT40 is a replica built by Superperformance not a real Ford GT40.

Can I bring guests?

You are welcome to bring friends and relatives to share your experience. Also we normally have space for them to get involved with a High Speed Passenger Ride or experience of their own if they fancy it on the day.

Can I drive without a licence?

Yes, drivers can be as young as 10 years old, providing they can reach the pedals with the padding we provide. All of our instructors are ARDS qualified and Police checked.

Cars you can drive without a licence are listed below:

Lightening McQueen

Supra

Skyline

Mustang GT

Aston Martin

Audi R8

Bumblebee (Camaro ZL1)

Can I drive your cars on the road?

Some of our cars are available for weekend / event hire. Please get in contact for details.

Can I upgrade my package / voucher?

Yes, please contact us with your requirements.

 

NO! We will never hold drivers back like many other experience companies do, the only time drivers will be slowed down is if they are driving outside of their ability or in a dangerous manner.

Do all cars run in the rain?

Yes, we run our events in all weathers unless it is deemed so extreme that is unsafe to be on track. 

Do cars have traction control?

Some do, some don’t. A lot of our muscle / race cars don’t so you need to be careful with the throttle in some of the monsters!

Do I have to drive quickly?

Not at all, our instructors will help you enjoy the drive however you would like to.

How fast can I go?

As fast as you like! Our expert racing instructors will help show you the fastest, safest way around the circuit. It is worth noting though that some of these cars are 50 years old and cannot be driven in the same manner as modern super cars.

What tracks are available?

At the moment we run at Blyton Park in North Lincoln, Abingdon in Oxford, Bicester in Oxford, Tockwith in York, Bentwaters near Ipswich, Perranporth in Newquay, and Cotsworld AIrfield in Cirencester.We are looking to expand to other circuits shortly. Blyton Park is £10 extra on a weekend day from 2017, payable at the time of booking.

At all of our locations, each lap is approximately 1 mile long for our driving experiences. 

Please note that Lorry/Truck experiences are not avalable at our Bicester location.

Once a voucher has been used or date booked a cash refund will not be available, in the event of a car or event becoming unavailable due to no fault of the customer then a suitable replacement or date will be offered.
