"This experience was insane."

"The on-track preparations, registration, briefing etc, were efficient and without any delays. This was my second V8 experience and it was so much better. Sandown is a blast! What a great track and great cars. Can't wait to book it again, but more laps next time. Awesome!!!"

"I highly recommend this experience even if you aren't a petrol head."

"I congratulate V8 racing experience on the professionalism of the day, from the information received beforehand and the kind, warm welcome at the registration to the genuinely informative driver's briefing! The driving of a V8 around Sandown Raceway is one thing, but the option to get a framed photo and a personalised video on USB made a great experience into a lasting one! My thanks and a big well done to the driving coach who was thoughtful, insightful and encouraging, and to the staff on and around the track - nothing was too much trouble!"

"I had the best time doing the hot laps and reaching speeds of up to 130kms around corners. It felt like the car was going to spin out but I had complete trust in the driver and knew it was a safe experience. I had an awesome day and I highly recommend it."
