Castle Combe Driving Experience

Price: £165 (half day) Drive time: 40 minutes

Although it poured with rain all day, this failed to dampen our enthusiasm for the Castle Combe driving experience. There’s no speed limiter on the cars and you really get the feel of being at a race meeting. The day starts with a safety briefing and passenger laps in a Ford Focus to learn the track. The venue lost points here, as there were three passengers crammed into one car, and you couldn’t see much from the rear seats. Thankfully, it was just us and the instructor for our three laps behind the wheel. The Formula Ford single-seater (below) was a handful in the tricky conditions, but the relaxed atmosphere helped make the day enjoyable. Recommended.
