Rated 5 out of 5 by great day HI, had a great time on my front seat ride. I am in a wheelchair and your staff were only to willing to anything to help me, re suiting up and entry ,exit the car. My driver Neville was a really nice guy and really gave the most out of the car making the drive fantastic. I had paid for 6 laps but am pretty sure only got 5 , not to worry was still great, well done red balloon team, regards Mark. 7 May 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by It was a great experience and want to drive next time. I was given this ride as a gift and I enjoyed to greatly. I would recommend that if anyone wanted to go for a drive to first have a ride in the front passenger seat and then after that if you totally enjoyed the experience then do what I am going to do next time have a drive. Great day event. All staff on the day were great. Well done but my biggest thank you goes to my husband for giving me the great gift. Cheers 6 May 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Was disapointing Was disapointed because I had to wait 2 and a half hours for a 5 minute ride. 1 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic fun but tooooo short On check in I was rather bluntly told that I was late and should have been there at 10am. I pointed out to the young lady that I was infact early as my ride was not until 10.45. No apology, just we' ll let you go at that time. The same person was not exactly informative when we were leaving reception to go down to pit lane. From here on all direction was helpful and as for the ride that was just awesome. Amazing power and great thrill particularly over the back part of the circuit. Slow drivers unfortunately slowed one of our laps. 22 April 2013
