What about some Supercar Decimation! Most drivers are seldom granted the opportunity to sit behind the wheel of some of the world's most coveted supercars, so allow them to choose their favourites for a high-speed, exhilarating drive that provides world-class style. Add on a highly recommended high-speed passenger ride at the end of the experience to have one of the professional racers take you round the track at blistering speeds.

Enjoy the view from a gin tasting cruise on a vintage motor yacht, or take on some beer and food festivals - it’s just personal preference.

We’re always happy to receive Group Bookings, meaning that our track day and driving experiences make for a unique 40th birthday celebration or party ideas that a hired room or hall just can’t deliver.

They will be given the keys to a prestige model, such as a Ferrari, McLaren, Lamborghini, Porsche or Aston Martin, and enjoy a high-speed blast around a race circuit accompanied by a professional instructor.

There’s plenty of opportunity to take photographs, so although they won’t be able to take a supercar home, they can take their memories (which is almost as good!).

As well as supercars, you can get behind the wheel with in a single-seater race car – or another 40th birthday idea is the ultimate high-performance machine. These cars aren’t for the faint-hearted, capable of reaching 100mph in under five seconds, and are similar to those driven by F1 legends such as Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen.

Two-wheel fans can also join in the fast-paced action, either by riding their own machine on a track day or with the opportunity to ride a sizzling Yamaha R6. Meanwhile, our tank driving experiences offer something completely different and with some packages there’s even the chance to drive a 56-ton Chieftain Main Battle Tank and crush a saloon car - a truly unique 40th birthday gift.

You’re never too old to learn something new, and that includes learning to fly an airplane. With these experiences you’ll be taught the basics of flying and be given the opportunity to actually fly the plane. What’s more, a flying lesson can count towards gaining a Private Pilot’s Licence.
