What can I say from the moment we arrived to the moment we left all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We had paid for the junior experience which my 12 year old boy left beaming from ear to ear, I upgraded the hot ride lap for an additional £15.00 which was well worth it as he came out... More

There was great weather over the weekend at Longcross which always helps in the enjoyment factor. I've said it many times but thanks for the positive comments about our staff which I always pass on. The hot ride is something else and always makes a great day even better! Simon George More

I feel I must share my recent experience when attending an ARIEL ATOM THRILL at Rockingham Speedway earlier this month. In brief the weather was the issue & the company procedures (or lack of them) to know when a value for money experience can still be delivered to the paying public!. It was raining excessively before, during & after the... More

Thank you for your review. As I have mentioned before (to which you alluded) as a company we simply cannot cancel an outdoor event at such short notice because of rain. This is England and unfortunately the weather can be unpredictable. Rain does not cause safety issues, it just means that on track the speeds have to be less (just... More

I decided to buy my boyfriend a track experience for his birthday, it was super easy to buy online and everything we needed was either on email or mailed to us in the post. We arrived when our forms told us to and the team where super professional and the whole thing ran like clockwork. We got his form checked... More

My girlfriend was driving - she had time in both the Audi R8 and the Aston Martin. Had an amazing session with fantastic, very experienced drivers. She did not have her full driving licence but the organisers were quick to remedy any problem. And to top it all off, the director was kind enough to let me sit in the... More

We arrived at 6th Gear and I was full of trepidation, at first I felt very nervous, but also very excited about the prospect of driving a super car around the track. However, from the ladies in the office to the greeters at the track side soon my nerves disappeared as everyone was so friendly and reassuring. Soon my name... More

I visited elvington track 5 years ago and only just come across their review page. I have never done a track day before so I was really nervous about it.

I was a little unsure about visiting because of the slightly mixed reviews but I thought I would give it a go. Overall I was very disappointed , the food was distinctly average - I ordered the fish and chips and had to wait a frankly unbelievable 40mins. When it eventually arrived the chips were only lukewarm and I was... More

With respect, before taking the trouble to write a poor review perhaps it would be sensible to check you are writing a review of the correct company!! We don't and never have at 6th Gear Experience served fish & chips, neither do we sell mushy peas. Our ketchup is genuine Heinz and the bottles are placed where a customer can... More

Not value for money! No briefing given to my 12 old just 5 laps on a 400m stretch. Not a track more like car park coned off! No need to get there so early just a ploy to stand around to buy instant coffee for 2.50 at the burger van. That said the toilets were very clean and warm.

Thank you for your review and I'm glad you enjoyed the warmth of the toilets. To be honest I always feel rather bemused when parents complain that their children aren't allowed to drive a supercar at high speed on the adult circuit (which I understand you did). I don't think I have any kids myself but if I had, would... More

Our sons gave my husband his driving experience as a birthday gift. The insurance charge £25.00 is a rip off. It's all very well to say it's optional - but who wants to take the gamble of making a small diving error - maybe hit a cone and be whacked with a huge bill for fixing one of these lovely... More
