Newest Review: ... for to try and find the corners, it was impossible to approach the corners correctly even with guidance from the instructor alongside - after 4 laps I had probably only managed one enjoyable corner and this was only at about 50% of what the car could take it at, purely down to the abismal track marking. From the start of the last lap the car was running out of fuel so every time I accelerated ... more

6th Gear Experience - Ariel Atom - Elvington Airfield - York Overall a very poor driving experience - lovely sunny day, but very windy. Atom was very quick but you couldn't really experience it due to the circuit being marked out with very small cones on an otherwise featureless airfield. All of the Braking Point boards had blown over so you had just the less than 300mm high cones to look for to try and find the corners, it was impossible to approach the corners correctly even with guidance from the instructor alongside - after 4 laps I had probably only managed one enjoyable corner and this was only at about 50% of what the car could take it at, purely ...

6th gear is not worth it. Stay away. there are two main issues: 1) the experience. 6th gear targets people who want to have a cruise in a sports car not a track experience. They do not push you or help you to have fun. they keep you thousand of miles away from your own limit. the worst of the experience was that 2 out of my 3 laps were done behind other car (including a demonstrator car who laps very slowly). i was not refunded and did not get my money back. I could have had the same experience on those two laps with my normal BMW. the instructor also doesn't allow you to do the optimal trajectory as there are some fast demonstrator lap and that uses the right part of ...

Having been to a 6th Gear Event earlier in the year I booked a return visit in October. I was very impressed with the organisation, the staff and the cars! The selection of Supercars there on the day was amazing. I found the staff helpful and knowledgeable in the booking process and on the day there were lots of friendly staff.I drove a Lamborghini on my first visit and a Ferrari in October. Both were fantastic and the instructors put me at ease and encouraged me to get the best out of my drive.I am just hoping to get an Aston Martin voucher for Christmas now!!!

I do not usually write reviews but felt that some of these posted here were so different from my experience that a sense of balance is called for. The ONLY negative for me was the cold weather, which is hardly 6th gear's fault, and at least there was somewhere warm to shelter. I had two splendid drives in a DBS and a Murcielago and reached almost 130 mph in both. The organisation was slick and the instructors encouraging and calm. Everyone I came across was polite and helpful. No hesitation in recommending.

i had a junior driving experience in may and it was absolutely amazing!!! I drove an Aston Martin DB9 and although on paper it doesnt sound that quick, it was, i tell you it was very quick! I was a bit nervous at first but it was worth every single penny!! If you are looking at a junior driving experience, dont hesitate, its worth it! John Brady
