Great fun, nerve wracking and thrilling experience. James the instructor was very professional and reassuring. Although I'm never going to make a champion we really enjoyed it. Managed to hit clays in all of the disciplines. 50 shots for £50. It soon goes, but we...More

Small, tight track. No room to overtake. Lap timer doesn't work properly, misses laps regularly ruining the 'Grand Prix' experience that we paid extra for. Staff are uninterested, take too long to rescue drivers or fix track. Avoid.
