More-and-more Brits are driving supercars, testing their drifting skills and going off-road as 2019 sees a huge increase in driving experience bookings.

And with more and more dates available, we've seen that bookings more than doubled in 2019 compared to 2018 with people booking directly on to a date.

And it’s not just adults who are testing their driving skills to the limit as bookings for junior driving experiences rose by 56 per cent over the last 12 months compared to 2018.
