Our ethos is that your 'experience' should begin from the moment you first browse the site and we can deliver this because of:
  • - Unlike other experience companies we don't just sell you a voucher and leave you to call the supplier to book yourself. We manage your entire booking process from A - Z saving you time and money on phone calls.
  • - We have been a booking agent for track days and experience days since 2003 and have built trusted relationships with all of the venues and suppliers. The owner and manager of trackdays.co.uk have both been around since the first launch and their combined knowledge of the industry is passed down to all new members of staff.
  • - We have vetted each venue and supplier and at least one of our team will have experienced the event first hand meaning we can give you honest, non-biased advice about what you are ordering.
  • - You are able to do your entire booking online, but if you do need to call us, our average answer time on our standard rate number is 20 seconds. Even during peak times when the phones are busier, you have the option to chat with us live online or email your enquiry.
  • - Once you have booked a date, we will help to ensure that you get the tickets in time for your event and will liaise with the suppliers on your behalf should you have any enquires.
  • - All of our customers are invited to review our service and the service of the operator running the event. As a returning customer you will be eligible for a trackdays discount code to use on your next purchase.

No cover if the weather is wet. I waited 2 hours for my 6 minute drive. The cars and instructors are both great. The staff are friendly. But Everything else needs a Lot of work!

Booked for a Classic Mini driving experience but did not actually get to to drive a Classic Mini on the day. I was only told very late in the day that it was being used for another experience at the same venue (Italian Job experience) and would not be able to come back to the main 6lap track before daylight is too poor. I wasted 6 hours including travel time to and from venue, and waiting around, with no actual driving experience. I was offered to go out in another car, but I had booked for and wanted a classic Mini experience - there were no other cars on site even close to this, they were all supercars. Other people got to drive the Mini as well as other cars as part of their experience day, but as I was ONLY booked in for and wanted to drive a classic Mini, surely it would have made sense to get me out on the track first whilst others were able to go out in other cars that they *wanted to*. Also, I know it's unavoidable, but was also told later that everything was running late due to some accident or traffic issue on way to/near the venue. I was able to rebook the classic Mini experience at another venue next month where I was told they are NOT holding other events using the car so I am hopefully I will eventually get to drive the car I have booked for. Staff were helpful when I was engaged with them but couldn't shake the feeling that the general organisation is poor. For example, you have staff calling out peopes names to come in to the pit area to wait for their car - 1 had a loud voice so could be hear fine, another couple had megaphones and could be heard but some staff with seemingly very quiet voices were just using a talking volume voice - no way that could be heard over the sound of all the cars and other ambient noise. So I worried at one point I'd missed my name being called out. If the rearranged date doesn't actually give me what has been paid for, I will be seeking a refund. I won't be rebooking a 3rd time (this event was rearranged from November 2021 as the car failed its mechanical inspection). Cant rate the car or instructor... never got a chance with them.

The experience was great fund and the instructor most helpful. However, I had booked for a Classic Mini Thrill which I thought would be in a standard 1960/70 mini. The the experience was booked a premium was paid for Castel Combe on a Saturday - this was very difficult to book. Being more used to a standard mini (having been a driving instructor for over 10 years and spent much of this time in a mini I was a little disappointed.
