Our visit to 6th Gear's Elvington track day on 12th November 2016 was a very wet cold day, however this did not impact on the incredible day we had, if anything it made it more interesting to have to adapt each car to the conditions. We arrived early and registered and took out insurance to cover us, we were lucky... More

Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review. I'm especially grateful for your comments about our staff who work really hard and often get soaked to the skin as you found first hand! But I do hope you will return sometime and drive one of our other supercars. Simon George More

Well what a day, how fantastic it was to see my husband grin from ear to ear from his tutor lap to his 2 Lambo drives. He was thrilled with this gift and having travelled all the way from Suffolk just to drive the Aventador, I'm so happy his gift was a success. If I had one wish it would... More

Had a Lamborghini Aventador experience booked and arrived to find a very efficient check in process and wasn't long before I was out for a hot lap in the Focus RS with one of the fastest drivers I've been in the car with.. and he was 74 years old but an ex pro racer. I enjoyed the Lamborghini drive so... More

My wife brought me an Arial Atom Experience with a hot lap after for my Birthday. From the initial first call the service was great, it was up to me when I go. Once we arrived we booked in with a friendly smile and everything was explained in a nice clear manner, including the choice to upgrade my hot lap... More

Having for many years wanted to take part in a driving experience, when a friend had a present booked for Elvington on 27th August I joined him and decided to book on the day, which was very expensive, but I thought it could act as a taster. I booked to drive a Ferrari (I had to go for the more... More

I'm genuinely sorry you feel your experience with us was a 'waste of money'. With respect what you forgot to mention is the day in question was beset by heavy rain making it obviously slower going on the track. I've said before I absolutely understand that rotten weather can disappoint customers who've been waiting a long time. I always brace... More

This is an expensive day out but it is around the 'going rate' for supercar driving experiences. Therefore, if you are going to spend the money then spending it with 6th Gear is a good place. The joining instructions are clear and set out expectations very well. Set your Sat Nav up for Elvington Air Museum and you should get... More

This is the kind or review which I personally really appreciate. I, my co-director and all our staff will always listen to constructive criticism to make our operation better. You make some valid points. Your point about the supercars being lined up on the seam is a good one. In fact before 8.45am they are lined up to the inch... More

Bought this experience for my father in law's 60th birthday - he went on Saturday and absolutely loved it - despite the rain. All the instructors were friendly and polite.

I've taken a couple of days to look into this before responding. With respect I cannot remember having had a customer complain that their 'hot' ride was in the Focus RS and not a supercar, simply because on our website our brochures and all our literature it clearly states that the 'hot ride' is in a high speed saloon car....
