    Track day in a supercar!

    I have been looking at maybe treating myself to a trackday where you get to do some laps in a supercar ferrari/porsche etc

    Has anybody had this experience? They are like £150-250 so basicly i want to know if they are worth it, and what sort of time you get in the car etc etc. (Driving the car)

    Any help/advice/comments welcome, as i dont want to spend that money to be disapointed

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    I did a rally one at Silverstone a few years ago (Xmas pressie from Sam)... was a good laugh! Teaches you a fair bit about car control in slippery conditions too

    I had an Aston Martin driving day for my 18th, it was at thruxton, and i'd say it was worth it. You get 3 laps taken out in a Mazda3 mps where the instructor drives and teaches you about where to brake etc, then 4 laps in a porsche caymen which you drive with an instructor next to you. Then finally an Aston Martin v8 vantage for 4 laps with the instructor.
    Go for it, you'll definetly remember it, being with all the cars in all.
