For any other driving licences, such as Arabic or Kanji, you will need to provide an international driving licence as well on the day of the event.

If this is not possible you will be required to purchase our £47 full damage liability waiver and if at any point our instructors feel that you are not capable of driving the vehicles safely your experience will be ended with no refund given.

Automatic licences are acceptable, but will restrict you to driving cars that have an automatic transmission – only a small number of our cars are automatic. If you view our restrictions page, we’ve indicated which cars are manual and which are automatic.

Please note we would strongly advise against booking a multi car experience (one supercar blast/thrill etc) as cars are subject to availability and on the rare occasion there are no/too few automatic cars available for your booking you will be required to pay a rebooking fee and rebook for an alternate date.

We have special experiences for two participants, Blast for Two and Thrill for Two.

These experiences are unique and specially created for two participants, with only one booking required. Please put BOTH driver’s names in, separated by a / or – to clearly identify each driver.

If you have a Drifting or Stunt experience for two, you will need to make two separate bookings for the same session, on the same day using the same voucher code. One booking for each driver.

The expiry date is more of a “book by” date, as long as the booking is submitted on our website at least 3 working days before your voucher expiry date, we should be able to honour your voucher for any available date in our calendar.

Any concerns, contact us as soon as possible.

Anyone can place a booking on our website, despite whether they hold a voucher or not.

The Experience and Venue

How many other drivers will there be at my experience?

The number of other participants in your session can vary depending on which experience you are attending.

There will often be other participants driving on other kinds of experiences from drifting to stunt-driving.

We aim to keep our session numbers low, this provides us more time for each participant and the opportunity to continue additional driving sessions without excessive waiting times.

Saturday bookings are always fully booked.

Can spectators come and watch?

Yes. We have spectator areas inside and out.

Depending on availability, they may have the chance to sit beside one of our instructors for some thrilling hot-laps in a range of cars, or even get involved with some driving of their own!

Please be aware we are predominantly an outdoor venue, there are occasions when the indoor spaces are extremely busy or in use for functions. Please dress appropriately for the weather, warm clothes are often appreciated by spectators.

Can I bring my pets to the venue?

Unfortunately we cannot allow any pets to be brought to the venue.

The track is surrounded by active farmland with working animals including guard dogs who may visit at any time.

As part of our ongoing commitment to the health and safety of all participants, the risk of an animal in the pitlane or on track is not one we can permit; The resulting incident could be catastrophic for animal, vehicle, guest and staff member alike. We must circumvent the possibility of this by asking that you respect our decision in the interest of health and safety.

Service dogs necessary for the participant or guests are welcome.

Are there any Hotels nearby?

Yes, there are many hotels within the area, why not check out the Partnership section of our Driver Club for more information?

We have discounts and special connections with many of them and our partnerships are increasing every month.

What happens if it rains?

All events will go ahead, with the exception of extreme weather conditions, i.e ice / snow.

In severe rainfall, where standing water is left on track, expect delays, or possibly cancellation of the Atom, Single Seater F1000 and GT Race Car experiences.

We have a hospitality unit on site to keep spectators and guests dry and comfortable at all times, but would suggest that wet weather clothing and umbrellas are packed.

A limited number of Complementary Umbrellas can be loaned by visitors while on site, found in and returned to reception.

What facilities do you have on site?

Car parking is free and the hospitality building is accessible via ramp.

Our bathroom facilities are nearby, but are only currently accessible via steps.

The nearest all access bathroom facilities are at the very near by service station.

We have an indoor refreshment café serving hot drinks, cold drinks, basic snacks and packaged sandwiches (subject to availability)



What do I need to wear?

Wear comfortable clothing. We suggest warm layers through spring and winter months and sunscreen and hats for summer.

It is essential you wear flat-soled, slim fitting shoes, particularly on Race Car experiences.

We unfortunately can no longer provide wet weather clothing, we ask you to bring your own if you are in an open vehicle.


Helmets are supplied and required for F1000, Ariel Atom, GT Race Cars and those with Roll Cages (S15, Mustang NASCAR etc).

If you do wear one of our helmets for your experience, a Balaclava is required. If you do not have/bring a balaclava with you, one can be purchased from reception.

You can wear your own helmet as long as it has the relevant Kite Mark, with the exception of Ariel Atom experiences; due to use of an intercom, you must utilise one of our helmets which is fitted with the required equipment to communicate with your instructor.

Supercar and Drift Experiences, helmets are optional.


Drift Limits Branded Balaclavas, Race Gloves, hats, T-shirts, beanies and more can be purchased from our cafe.

What happens if I damage the car?

Drift Limits take participants Health & Safety very seriously, we have designed a circuit and experience format to minimise risk and offer a safe environment in which to drive. The chances of damaging a car should be very low, in any condition.

However, there is an inherent risk in any motorsport activity and we ask participants to be aware of these risks and take appropriate measures to maintain their own safety, by adhering to our conditions and following our instructors guidance.

Should damage be caused to a vehicle as a result of a participants driving, our participants accept to paying excess costs required to make good the damage. Excess varies as to experience booked, from £2,500+VAT for Under 17s experiences to £20,000+VAT for the Jordan EJ12.

If you would like information as to excesses, please contact us

There is an optional damage liability reduction available for most experiences, this can be prepaid via our website when booking or paid on the day of the event before the participant begins their session. This amends the liability to pay for accidental damage caused to vehicles during an experience, so long as the health & safety guidelines and instructor guidance has been followed. There is no damage liability reduction for the Jordan EJ12.
