Overview
Why buy from us?
Fans of the popular motoring TV show Top Gear always look forward to the ‘Star In A Reasonably Priced Car' segment of the show, where celebrities ranging from Jimmy Carr to Olly Murs have proved their speed credentials. Now's your chance to give them all a run for their money with our exclusive Top Gear Star in a Car Challenge experience. You'll take to the site of Top Gear's famous test track at Dunsfold Park in Surrey, where you'll begin your day with three miles in a super speedy Ariel Atom just as Jeremy Clarkson did on the show (albeit with a helmet). Then it's over to the Off Road course, where an expert instructor will teach you how to drive an Off Road Segway. The very same Segway will also be driven by you to take over to the 4x4 course, where you'll drive a Land Rover 4x4. Finally, you'll take to the wheel of our Reasonably Priced Car (a Kia Cee'd) for five laps of approximately 10 minutes against the clock. Can you beat Matt LeBlanc's record leaderboard time of 1:42:10 that he scored on the show? Our Top Gear Star in a Car challenge is a great gift idea for Father's Day if your dad's a fan of the show, with a special offer of 30%.

Your experience day commences with:

  • Welcome introduction and sign in with our team to collect your itinerary
  • Drivers briefing with an experienced and qualified instructor

After which, your experience will include (not necessarily in this order):

  • Drive of the Ariel Atom for 3 miles around the track
  • Tutorial of driving an Off Road Segway, which you will drive over to the 4x4 course
  • Drive of a Land Rover 4x4 around the 4x4 course
  • Drive in our Reasonably Priced Car, the Kia Cee'd for around 5 laps (10 minutes max). You will be timed, and the best lap will be put up on the leaderboard
  • All drivers will receive a certificate of their day as well as their score cards and automatic membership to our VIP club.

Please allow to be at the venue for the entire morning or afternoon.

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 eligable for a trackdays discount code to use on your next purchase.
