Brilliant day, but be aware of long waiting times

My husband got the Aston Martin driving experience as a birthday gift and we booked the day at Rockingham race tracks. We were a little surprised about the long wait, we were told to be there at 13.30 for a 14.00 start. Turned out that there was a briefing at 14.30 which took about 10-15 minutes. After that you had to wait in a queue for the chosen car. We queued for almost 1,5 hours before he got to do the drive. Some queues were even longer. The drive was fantastic and very enjoyable, and the car was beautiful. After that drive we then had to wait in another queue for the passenger thrill ride. That was about a 45 minutes wait. Because the weather was decent it didn't matter so much, but the long waiting times did make it a much longer afternoon. For customers who chose an experience with a number of different cars, be aware that you will be there for most of the day. Someone I spoke to had arrived at 10am and was on his fourth car at 4pm. He decided to do an extra lap in that car rather that wait for his fifth car. Overall a great day and fantastic experience. The cars on offer were absolutely first class, all the major supercars and they looked stunning. The thrill ride was a proper white-knuckle ride, a brilliant experience. I hope they can do something about the long waiting times and long queues. I didn't know that you could just turn up on the day and pay for the drives there and then, hence the long queues. Perhaps people who pre-book and pre-pay could get priority in the queues.
What would you improve for next time? Either do something about the long waiting times such as get people to pre-book time slots (like I thought we had done). If that is impossible, then make clear to the customers in advance so they know what to expect on the day. Nowhere was the format of the day described, so when we had booked a 2pm start we thought that was his time slot. Or get people who have pre-booked/pre-paid priority in the queues.

Great day, massive selection of cars and experiences.
What would you improve for next time? The chance to buy the video up to the end of experience. I didn't know that you only have one chance to buy the video after you exit the car.

Location: Stafford Age: 55-64 Bought For Wife Occasion: Birthday
Allow plenty of time for your experience. I was booked in for 09.30 but upon arrival the times arranged for me were up to an 11.30 completion. I would recommend the passenger ride first (mine was in a Mitsubishi) to get an eye for the line and braking points. I had four laps in the Aston. The instruction was pitched at the correct level. I had chance to get a feel for the course before being encouraged to give it more. This is not a track day, it's a driving experience.
What would you improve for next time? More laps. Four laps at Stafford goes in a few minutes.

Great for a gift but costs add up.

We bought the Aston Martin Driving Thrill with Passenger Ride for my Dad's 60th which he really enjoyed. Due to availability we paid an extra £10 for the DBS, where my Dad got slick black Aston... nice! but I think wasn't too confident in driving a 100K supercar! After the Aston drive - he came back from the Passenger Thrill totally dazed...the driver really gave it some! The price on-line does not include insurance for the day, which we paid extra for before the drive and we bought our Dad a commemoratory photo. So be aware the cost of all this adds up. Overall the people of 6th Gear Experience where organised, although it took a little longer to bring the car around, but that could be due to the number of people attending supercar experiences. However, the number of cars on the track didn't seem to hinder your drive. Great!
What would you improve for next time? Include more services in the cost actually paid on-line, then at least the full price is know, for example, the insurance 'optional' cost, as people who don't feel greatly confident often purchase this extra. Lower prices for; photos, videos and refreshments you could buy on the day at the venues would be nice as a the cost of the experience voucher is already high. Also, giving the ability for people accompanying the driver to get a bit closer to the cars to allow them to take their own photos.

Location: prestwold hall Age: 45-54 Bought For Daughter Occasion: Birthday
In my opinion I should not have had to pay this as there should have been sufficient insurance for the drive without feeling the need for extra insurance in case you damage anything,this extra money could have been spent on extra laps or something .it went from a driving blast to a insurance trick( probably not the right words but just my opinion)
What would you improve for next time? Insurance ?

Aston driving experience

Aston fan
Location: essex Age: 35-44 Bought For Husband Occasion: Christmas
I loved the fact that I was able to drive an Aston martin which was why this was purchased for me as I had always wanted to, so that was the thrill. However, I took my day at north weald airfield. The driving track is small and set out by cones. There is isn't really enough space to really get up much speed and there are too many other supercars being driven around the small track at one time, so have to keep slowing down for other vehicles. Staff were all brilliant and clearly enjoy their jobs but this would not be an appropriate choice for an adrenaline junkie who really wanted to get up speed.
What would you improve for next time? a bigger driving track and fewer cars on track when doing experience, preferably to be the only one at any one time especially as it doesn't take long to do laps
