In the North




Elvington Airfield near York.

Showcasing arguably the largest run off area of any of the tracks that we operate our experience days. Elvington also boasts one of the longest runways in the UK which has been adapted over the years by plenty of F1 teams for testing. Motoring press also consider Elvington a popular venue. The circuit found itself in the headlines back in September 2006 after a certain incident involving a Top Gear presenter. Originally opened as RAF Elvington, it was used as a station for the Royal Airforce that ran from the start of the Second World War until 1992. The airfield is now owned by Elvington Park Ltd. The adjacent buildings and control tower have been restored and it currently being used as the Yorkshire Air Museum that showcases many rare aircrafts and also a complete Halifax bomber. Apart from Supercar experiences, Elvington also use the track for motorcycle racing. 6th Gear have constructed a challenging but fast circuit which has proved to be a major attraction for nearly 10 years!

In the South




Dunsfold Park (Top Gear Track)

Built by the Canadian Army, and commanded by the Royal Canadian Air Force from 1942-1944 the aerodrome was used for military use. After the war, Dunsfold became one of the largest aerodromes for production and testing of planes including York, Lancastrian, Skymaster and Dove. British Aerospace (the then owners of Dunsfold) announced the closure of the aerodrome for restructuring in June 1999. In 2002, British Aerospaces’ successors (BAE Systems) sold Dunsfold to The Rutland Group, who created Dunsfold Park Ltd. Since then, the venue has been used to film scenes from "Come Fly With Me", "Casino Royale", "Red 2" and "London Has Fallen". The track has also, most famously, been used as the site of Top Gear, the runway is now a test track. The layout of the circuit was designed by Lotus test drivers and is marked on the run way using painted lines and structures such as tyre tracks. There are 2 layouts of the circuit. The figure 8 is used for the filming of Top Gear, however we run on the outer circuit. This layout is designed to give a mix of low and high speed corners plus a range of straights to allow you to enjoy a top of the range Supercar experience. Not only will you be given the opportunity to drive on a variation of the track used for Top Gear, but also you will drive past the famous Boeing 747-200 used in the film Casino Royale. Dunsfold is the perfect track if you are looking for something to do in the South! This venue is classed as a premium circuit therefore incurs a £30.00 upgrade cost (unless stated otherwise on your voucher - not required for junior driving experiences)

CASTLE COMBE CIRCUIT

Castle Combe started off in 1941 as an airfield, home to RAF Castle Combe for 7 years before being decommissioned in 1948. The venue then re-opened as Castle Combe Circuit in 1950 just 18 months after the world famous Silverstone Circuit. The circuit was based on the perimeter of the old airfield and remained unchanged from the day it opened up until 1998 when two chicanes were added to the track for safety reasons. In 1997, prior to the changes to the track, a lap record was set by Nigel Greensall in his Tyrrell 022 – lapping the circuit at 130.93mph. Castle Combe have hosted a wide variety of different motorsport events over the years, with Formula 3 returning to the venue in 2001. However, this was to be short lived as a noise nuisance order was issued in 2005 meaning the venue had to reduce its noise level. With the British Formula 3 Championship and the British GT Championship exceeding these new limitations, it resulted in these events no longer being held at Castle Combe. Today, Castle Combe Circuit still host many different motorsport events ranging from championship racing to Classic car shows. This venue is classed as a premium circuit therefore incurs a £30.00 upgrade cost (unless stated otherwise on your voucher).

Your Guide to a Supercar Driving Experience Day



Rewind about fifteen years or so and there was little in the way of a fast car driving experiences available in the UK. The best supercar driving experience days didn’t even include iconic supercars from manufacturers like Lamborghini or Aston Martin.

6th Gear Experience was founded to change all that – even being the pioneers of junior driving experience days. Aimed purely at children between the ages of 10-16 with a minimum height of 4ft 10 and are now hugely popular with over 4000 juniors being customers of ours annually.

As trends change, certain supercars become more popular than others. For example, when a new James Bond film is released, an Aston Martin experience is always a big draw. The Aston Martin DB9 driving experience makes a fantastic gift for someone special, and since we have the full fleet from this famous British manufacturer, an Aston Martin driving day in general is a fantastic thrill. So what should you look out for when searching for a supercar driving experience day or indeed just a supercar experience?

Well there seems to be a lot of choice out there, but most of the names tend to be third party agencies whilst there are very few companies who actually put on the experience days themselves. 6th Gear Experience is of course one, and having gained the prestigious TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence awards four years running is without doubt the company to turn to when making your choice. Supplying nearly all the major high street retailers and the large internet based agencies, we have carved a reputation in the industry as the best value for money by far. With an up to date modern fleet of supercars we now offer the best driving experience days bar none.

Popular Supercars Right Now

The Audi R8 driving experiences, together with the Ariel Atom driving experience are the most popular supercar experience. Followed closely by our Ferrari 458 experience. The Ferrari 458 driving experience is lauded as being the best modern Ferrari of recent times. Once again since we own and operate a full fleet of Ferrari’s, if you know someone with a passion for this great Italian manufacturer, this gift will make you very popular indeed! Interestingly, one of our increasingly popular sellers is the lorry driving experience. In fact lorry driving experience days are such fun they seem to appeal to all ages! From a 12 year old boy to an 80 year old lady, we’ve been amazed at the sheer uniform appeal of our exclusive lorry driving experience. Ok so you don’t get to go 100mph in a 40 ton truck, but trundling along come rain or shine in a DAF truck with 16 automatic gears is truly enormous fun. It looks like 2024 is already popular with those wishing to undergo the fabulous Lamborghini driving experience. Traditionally, this is one of our top sellers and this is reflected in the fact that kids also seem to want to involve themselves in our junior Lamborghini driving experience. As long as they are at least 5ft they can actually drive a Lamborghini equipped with dual controls and an instructor sat in the passenger seat watching their every move!

Back in the early 2000’s a Ferrari driving experience was far and away the top selling car driving experience. It’s interesting as we have mentioned before, how trends and tastes change over the years. We had a Nissan GTR join our fleet in 2019 which customers went crazy for! Due to the massive popularity and high demand, within 2 months we had added another one to the fleet. The R35 has been an excellent addition to our fleet, with many customers paying extra on the day to drive one.

Supercar driving experiences are also far more widely known because of TV programmes like Top Gear which help drive the driving day experiences market. Just searching driving experience days UK brings up a raft of entries many of which are provided exclusively by 6th Gear. This makes a driving gift a fantastic present, whether for birthdays or Christmas

Typically on a 6th Gear Experience event day, facilities are second to none with great quality catering available, a large marquee to provide cover from that inclement weather we are all used to here in the UK. Other optional extras such as Pay and Drive are available on the day aimed at those who wish to drive extra supercars as well as their pre-booked choices. Friends and family are all welcome and if they bring their driving licence too they can pick a supercar and also partake in a fast car experience too.

There is a difference though between a supercar day and a race day experience.

6th Gear Experience doesn’t really cater for hardened track enthusiasts – we leave this to others. What we do superbly is to provide a supercar track day experience usually as a gift, for someone who is very special.

We get asked often at 6thgearexperience how much a supercar driving experience costs. Of course many of our valued customers will spend as little at £59 or so purchasing a Ferrari experience for a family member for example. Others will go to the extreme and spend £495 or more on what may end up being a full day driving experience. Driving experience days for two are also catered for by 6thgearexperience. Perhaps that someone special in your life fancies an Audi driving experience while you yourself might crave the more traditional Aston Martin driving experience. We can cater for everyone!

At 6th Gear HQ (in Solihull), our friendly call centre staff will endeavour to answer all your queries. They are used to being asked a variety of questions from where exactly are the venues, which Supercars are the best to drive, to how fast are they willing to let me drive. Working hands on with our garage team, our customer service team are more than happy to help any question that you may have!

In the first few years of 6th Gear’s existence, the company operated solely from Elvington which was so popular with customers looking for driving experience days York. It was here in fact that we ran our first driving experience days for kids which at first only included the Ferrari, but then expanded to include more variety of supercars to drive.

We operate from various super UK circuits. Head over to our Locations page to see exactly which tracks we run at. We’ve already covered how a race car experience doesn’t really describe what we do here at 6thgearexperience. What we do exceptionally well is to provide superb supercar drive days for the general public many of whom are simply not experienced in getting behind the wheel of a 200mph supercar.
