Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Despite booked session time, an hour and a quarter wait for a brief experience, seemed quite poorly organised. The Aston “supercar” is a 2008 automatic. Total of 2.8 laps so not feeling great value for money.

Wow!!! what a fantastic day out, the whole experience was mind blowing. A present from my children for my 80th birthday, couldn't have gone better. The Lotus got the adrenaline pumping, then the Lambo for some real speed, followed by the Ferrari and Aston (both with extra laps) and finally the EVO Hot Lap. I too hit 160kph., but no complaints from any of the instructors, they were fabulous all the way. In summing up; Great team, great cars and a great experience. See you all again in five years.

I had a blast. The car was great, and my instructor was awesome - enough free reign that I could stretch it, and some good advice to help me get some better lines. We actually both had a hoot which was super cool Thanks heaps to all of you!

This was a great experience team. As a car photographer and enthusiast, I really enjoyed the experience from start to end. The customer experience was very purposeful and even though I was being handed off between different team members, it felt like one well-thought-out, seamless experience. The team was friendly, helpful, and a pleasure to be around. What a great day!

The cars are amazing and the instructor's are very professional and happy to assist you in the experience. The hot lap we awesome and I could see how much work really goes into driving a race car on a track like Hampton Downs. A very memorable experience. Thanks team.

As usual had a ball - well run and organised. More laps would have been great but the experience is well worth the $$

Thanks 206trevori for the review... great to hear you had a ball and there's always next time for some more laps! We have just added a Lamborghini Tricolore Limited Edition so maybe that's just the excuse ;-) ... all the best Eddie

Hi, I had a fantastic experience yesterday (22/02/2023). Thanx to everyone for the professional approach to making the day super enjoyable. If anything could have gone better, I should have taken the options for more laps and to drive more cars. 😊 Oh well, I’ll wait patiently for Father’s Day this year.
