I brought a voucher for my sons 21st to do 10 laps around Bruce McLaren park in Taupo driving a Formula One race car, he absolutely loved this and would be keen to do it again, was nervous at the start but full of adrenalin afterwards. The only negative and its not really a negative is I had to pay extra at time of arrival for insurance purposes, would of been helpful to know this in advance.

Recently booked a multi session day with FCR (open wheel car and 2 sessions). Was so much fun, and I could have done that all day if money wasn't a limiting factor. Great coaches, and a super fun car to drive. Definitely worth the time to go and try.

I was shouted the experience by my wife and kids. I was impressed at the friendliness and professionalism of the front office, warmed by the welcome from Andrew when we got to the grid, seriously impressed at the casual competence of Gavin on the familiarisation laps, blown away by the brilliance of Ricky as an instructor, and hooked on the experience of really going for it! I’ll be back!
