‪Castle Coombe.. we had a great day doing the 5 supercar experience, instructors were great, organisation was on point, yes they try and upsell but what company doesn't. I was was actually upgraded for free, so no complaints from me.
Castle Coombe is a proper race circuit so you are allowed to drive as fast as your ability allows.
5/5 from me.‬

‪Not at all as advertised & beware their premium 'greedy' rate numbers!‬
أكتوبر 2020
‪Before leaving this review, I sent an email to 6th Gear because I thought it better to make them aware of my experience so that they could comment rather than just review on Tripadvisor or any of the many other review sites. They ignored my email. On October 3, 2020 I went along to the NEC for my supercar thrill. I drove a Lamborghini first (which had the EML lit on the dash) with an instructor who advised that changing down the box whilst driving would blow the engine, so don't change gear! As it happens I didn't have the opportunity. The second car I drove was and Ariel Atom which was great or would have been if I had the chance of getting out of fourth  once there, either up or down which is not easy when you never get out of the car park. Literally. According to the 6th Gear website
"THE NEC HAS AROUND 160 ACRES OF HARD-STANDING LAND...6th GEAR HAVE ACCESS TO SOME OF THIS AND WILL CAREFULLY BE CONSTRUCTING A CHALLENGING YET FAST LAYOUT TO ALLOW YOU TO ENJOY OUR SUPERCARS!" In other words, a car park and 6th Gear's interpretation of carefully constructing a challenging and fast layout means an oval around this car park marked with some miniature traffic cones and don't get skidding the car into the Mother&Child spaces or its a red flag for you! What a complete letdown. Maxed out at 60 mph! Honestly, if you are looking for a supercar thrill, there are lots of alternative providers of track days or similar experiences. Quite frankly, I would choose any other than 6th Gear as they're experience is so bad that any other provider simply has to be better. On a positive note; other than the Lamborghini instructor, the staff on the day were extremely polite and very professional.‬

Robert, I spoke to you on the day about your complaint and you agreed that you hadn't read the booking information correctly ans to what you had purchased. At 6th gear we offer a variety of circuits around the country of which all offer a different driving experience, not a Trackday. The comments you make about the car and it blowing up are totally unfactual.

‪Blown away by a great experieince‬
أكتوبر 2020
‪I've just returned from Castle Combe after experiencing a 6 supercar and fast lap experience with 6th Gear Experience.
What a phenomenal experience from start to finish and my thanks to all of the team at 6th Gear for making it such a memorable experience.
The team were friendly from the moment we arrived, nothing was to much trouble, they were flexible, the instructors were very informative and the cars were absolutely awesome, together with the track itself which provided such a memorable day.
However, the best was saved until last where Andy took me out on a fast lap in the Radical - the supercars were fantastic, but this was absolutely on another level and not an experience to be missed.
I would definitely recommend them and will be booking another experience day soon.‬

الأصدقاء • يوليو 2019
‪I was bought the 6th gear experience for my birthday and attended Bruntingthorpe track, leicestershire today. What an amazing experience. Good variety of supercars with a good amount of time spent in them. Friendly, informative and helpful staff and the icing on the cake was the hotlap with Andy in the Radical SR3. Would definitely recommend... WOW what a day!!‬

‪Great experience, total disappointment from customer services‬

‪Don't go without taking out a mortgage first!
Went for my sons 14th birthday he loved it, but the amount of extras they want you to pay for is extortionate!
My partner wanted to have his go from buyagift, they said they'd take the money and then refund me today, but after calling 6th gear they've fobbed me off and won't do as they promised so I've basically paid for it twice!
I will not use them again‬

A factually incorrect review. On checking your voucher details it was found that you weren't booked in for the experience day. We could have sent you home but didn't and tried to accommodate your by asking you to pay on the day until we could verify your voucher details with Buyagift. This has now been done and your money refunded.

‪Supercar experience‬
العائلة • أبريل 2019
‪My son and I chose to drive the Lamborghini aventador. At 10 years old and a car fanatic , for my son to drive a car for the first time and to drive his dream car is amazing. The staff are brilliant and made him feel confident to open the car up. On my drive I was surprised at how much l was allowed to push the car as friends who have had supercar experiences with other companies complained they hadn’t had the chance to push the car. Booking is easy , on the day everything runs like clockwork , staff are friendly and informative. Refreshments available as well as a recording of your drive and reasonably priced photographs. Thanks guys for an awesome experience.‬

‪Brought for our sons birthday so we all tagged along to share the fun, great day, good choice of 10 cars on the day although told there were more but they were away that day. Instructors were good and really let him go for it as confidence built. Definitely a good present so much so I will get the wife one for herself to enjoy for her birthday. Advice take a pic nic and enjoy all that Bruntingthorpe has to offer‬

‪Truck driving experience‬
الأصدقاء • يوليو 2018
‪Visited Saturday 7th July. Would just like to say what a great time I had at Bruntingthope Proving Ground Leics. My partner bought me the Truck Driving experience as I had wanted to drive one for so long. I had a fantastic time and really enjoyed it and Ian the instructor was very helpful, talked me through everything and made sure I was happy with everything before we started. We had a choice of automatic or manual vehicle. I opted for the automatic, the course although small you got to try out a slalom through cones, parking in a bay and then reversing into the same bay. Then a straight run where I reached 50 mph. Although you are in the vehicle for no more than 10 - 15 minutes I loved every minute. (This is the same with any of these experiences and different companies). This is something I would recommend. Would have loved to have driven it round the bigger track but this was not very practical😂. You have the option to purchase the damage waiver £25 and the usb for the incar video.
Many thanks again‬

‪First time at Bruntingthorpe - fantastic!‬
زوجان • يوليو 2018
‪So, originally our drives (my wife & I) were booked at Longcross, which were moved to Castle Combe due to the unforseen circumstances at Longcross (which were not the fault of 6th gears). The improvised re-arrangement of our drives by 6th gear were not too convenient for my wife & I, so I called to discuss & the girl I spoke to (Claire perhaps?) was very polite & helpful & quite quickly got the drives moved to Bruntingthorpe on a more suitable day. There are a lot of negative reviews relating to this & more so the apparent difficulty of obtaining a refund - I personally didn't request a refund so I cant comment on that. All I can say is we were informed about the cancellation by email with a new date, location & times already in place (albeit not suitable) but changing this really wasn't any trouble.

So about the day! Bruntingthorpe is further than Longcross from us but I actually preferred the track. I have done Longcross a couple of times but upon comparison I found I got more out of Bruntingthorpe. Below I am going to list the reasons why this is a 5/5 review (in no particular order):

* Lots of staff - one great thing I found is there were lot's of staff, which meant things ran smoothly & were well organised. We found we were never waiting on staff & they were on the ball. There was a guy there who was obviously in charge but he was really on it, making sure things ran like clockwork.

* Staff were friendly & approachable - the young lad Charlie was so friendly & polite. Nothing seemed like too much trouble. His colleagues were really friendly as well & the girls in reception/booking area were really nice. One girl even recognised my name from the original Longcross booking & she was really polite.

* Instructors - I drove 4 cars so met 4 different instructors. Each very different, each very friendly. Instructors I found were authoritative yes, but restrictive no (if that makes sense?). To give an example, I have read reviews on here saying the instructors didn't let them do X or wouldn't allow them to do Y. OK firstly, these cars are anything from say £100,000 to £300,000 (at a guess) so for the instructors to lay down a couple of polite ground rules is expected & perfectly acceptable but in no way did any of them make me feel like my experience was being hampered or suppressed. I drove properly & respectfully & these guys encouraged me to go faster & corner harder. I just get the feeling that some people go in thinking they are the Stig. If you think you are good enough to to be a racing driver then why are you doing the occasional 6th gear experience? My foot went down, no one told me to slow down (apart from maybe a gentle reminder when a corner was coming up) - what more would I require?

Some of the reviews on here seem unfair. People complaining it was raining on the day? & that is 6th gears fault how? People moaning about extra charges - yes there is a £25 damage excess waiver but that is £25 for as many drives as you are doing, not for every drive. YES I kind of think this should be included in the cost as it's a no brainier but it's not full blown Ryanair. A night out at the cinema or a day out at the theme park are worse for being ripped off & nothing compares to having to buy paint-balls at..well paint-balling. Photo's & USB video's etc. are a tad expensive but this is a business & they do need to make money. I personally don't really feel the need to buy any of that stuff (photo's or videos) as the memory of driving them are more than adequate, hence I am not going to moan that I "had" to pay for them.

The only ONLY thing I would say (& this is feedback, not an outright complaint) is that I think if your on-the-day costs for drives were a bit cheaper, you may get more people booking them while they are there doing their pre-booked drives. I understand that on-the-day bookings are more expensive anywhere you go & of course these drives have to be fitted in around the booked drives so you may not actually want too many people booking them (especially if you are having a busy day like Saturday) but just some feedback nonetheless!

All in all, a good company that I would recommend.
