“Outstanding quality of experience, cars, tuition and hospitality.”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

This is a first class day and anyone who is interested in driving would enjoy it hugely. The Porsches available are from the whole range but the experience is tailored to individual needs. My instructor, Graham, was great and really helped me get the best out of the Boxster S. A challenging variety of courses including skid pans were on offer. The food and hospitality were great and if taking a spectator there is a very comfortable viewing area. Really good - now just to save the pennies for my new Porsche.

“Incredible time”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

My wife bought me a Porsche Experience for my birthday - I couldn't thank her more. Every interaction with the Centre was a pleasure and my requests were handled in a very professional manner.

You know how you buy a computer and always think you're only using a few of the functions - I can say the same for owning a Porsche (C4 & 997 Turbo) and always felt I wasn't using them to their full potential. A morning with a professional instructor helped me to find out about the cars potential and my limits! Don't compare this to other 'driving days' - their are no arrogant F1 hopefuls teaching here keen to show you just how bad you are. All of the instructors are very, very experienced - Richard Attwood was one of the instructors today. They are there to help and pass on knowledge and tips.

I had a great morning and I'm already planning my next visit.

Dropped in on off chance being in the area. They were very accommodating - 90 minutes in Panamera - can't stop grinning, the instructor was brilliant and the car stunning! Just need £100k to buy 500 Bhp monster with ceramic brakes.
