It’s a fact there seem to be more Supercar Driving Experience’s available these days than you can shake a stick at. However it’s a little known fact that behind nearly all of what you see in those nice little boxes at High Street retailers and through online agencies such as Virgin, Red Letter Days and Buy a Gift, is a Midlands based Supercar Driving Experience provider aptly called 6th Gear Experience.
Owning a fleet of 25 top flight supercars and operating out of six UK circuits the company employs around fifty staff and one hundred part time race instructors. With a fleet of seven double decker F1 style race trucks the company transports its supercars to around eighty specific event days a year. In the North 6th Gear operate out of Blyton Park race circuit near Gainsborough and Elvington near York. The Midlands is taken care of by Bruntingthorpe proving ground and Rockingham Speedway, and the South by the famous Castle Combe circuit near Bath and Longcross test Track near Chertsey in Surrey.
6th Gear’s Supercar fleet is an impressive line up and includes the best from Lamborghini such as the Aventador, Ferrari’s benchmark the wonderful 458 Italia and Aston Martin’s classic James Bond DBS. Dial in the best from Porsche & Audi (in the fabulous V10 R8’s), the famous supercharged Ariel Atoms (remember Jeremy Clarkson’s cheeks wobbling in the well known BBC Top Gear sketch) and lots more derivatives from the same stable and its a recipe for a fantastic event day to remember.
Moving onto the event days themselves and there is no doubt the key to a well run and managed event is organisation – something 6th Gear have nailed a long time ago. Facilities on the day include great quality catering, additional services such as in-car videos and professional photographs. Extra drives can also be arranged and paid for on the day and what’s more also enjoyed by the friends and family of the actual customer attending – as long as they bring a full driving license.
The company doesn’t profess to being the cheapest either. There are ‘supercar driving experiences’ (note the inverted comma’s) available on line from around £25 but when the customer turns up and finds a tatty left hand drive Ferrari often more than fifteen years old then its just too late to think again. Cowboys exist in most industries and supercar driving is no exception. Given that 6th Gear Experience have been awarded TripAdvisor’s coveted Certificate of Excellence for the last three years its obvious their huge amount of repeat customers agree. Value for money is key at 6th Gear Experience..
Although 6th Gear retail their Supercar Driving Experience’ through the aforementioned providers the best prices are always to be had directly from their easy to use website at 6thgearexperience.com.
