I can sum up my day at the formula racing driving experience in three words "it was amazing".

It was one of the best days of my life so far. It far exceeded my expectations and I had an absolutely amazing time learning to drive the formula Renault.

The team and their facilities are second to none, their response to working around my busy schedule to arrange the days (and change them a few times) was great.

Yes I would do it again and I am now seriously contemplating taking up this sport as a hobby.

The experience was most pleasant, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves: the team was very professional and friendly, the kit was very clean, Rodolfo and Philippe were both excellent tutors. We love the attention to detail and the nice little touches, i.e., name of driver on car, the photo taking session at the end etc.

We would definitely go back/recommend friends.
