Seems ages since the events finished in 2013, but now they are about to begin we’re a much happier bunch here at 6th Gear Experience!
In fact we’ve had two smaller events already this year which were hugely popular and dedicated to truck & junior experiences only. Both were a tremendous success – the weather at York even played ball and we had a beautiful clear day. Same can’t be said though for Bruntingthorpe where a huge downpour and galeforce winds came a little too late in the day to ruin things!
Next week (22nd Feb) sees our first adult event day of the season at Longcross, Surrey. It’s almost sold out but we’ve a few spaces left in a couple of supercars if you’re half thinking about it. The recent flooding hasn’t affected our circuit near Chertsey so it’s defo on come rain or shine!
Our first event at Castle Combe in June is also filling up fast so if you want to get behind the wheel of a supercar at this truly iconic circuit where all the legendary F1 drivers have both practised and raced – then give us a call to avoid being disappointed.
Most of our supercars have now been through both our workshops and body shop. We like to keep our supercars pristine so almost all have had their front ends repainting (stone chips are a common problem on circuits) as well as full engine overhauls. The big Lamborghini LP640 for example has had its awesome V12 lifted out while it’s manual 6 speed ‘box has been sent away for a bit of TLC. The 458′s electrical issues look like they are now sorted and our flagship Ferrari is on belting form right now! The sheer pace of that supercar never fails to amaze me. One worthwhile investment we’ve recently made is in a portable Italian diagnostic machine costing almost £20,000. Able to instantly diagnose faults on every one of our Supercars it can also usually rectify issues instantly. Well worth it when you consider the level of usage our 30 strong fleet gets.
Look forward to seeing you at one of our events soon!
