I have for sale, 1 x Ferrari driving experience pack.
I got this last year for my birthday, but due to new work commitments (owning my own lorry), I am unable to use it.
Included in the pack are :

1) Information cards with everything you need to know about the
experience.

2) The voucher. (Including original purchase receipt for verification).

3) Full details of insurances included.

This experience is issued by Red Letter Days and the expiry date is 29/02/04.

There are 2 circuits at which this can be used.

1) Thruxton Circuit, Andover, Hampshire.

2) Prestwold Hall, Loughborough, Leicester.

Cars available to drive are :
Ferrari 328, 360 and a fire engine
at Prestwold Hall.

Ferrari 355, a single seater and an MG ZS at Thruxton.
Plus training laps at both venues in a 'hot hatch'.

This cost my missus £249.

I am open to SENSIBLE offers.

I did this one a couple of years ago at Prestwold Hall. Absolutely *FANTASTIC* day. Highly recommended. Great fun driving a Mk1 Golf GTi at the limit (instructor was much more laid back than the one in the Ferrari <lol>).

Not enough time in the Ferraris though - but then, what would be? The F355 (was there at the time) was fan-bloody-tastic, but not quite a match for my CLK :)

I've actually done three of these, so not too interested at the mo, sorry Grav :)

(Damn Smilies ain't working :-( for me)

I really wanted this for my missus for Xmas last year - but shes too short at 5'2" :(

She ended up with the Audi TT / single seater session at Brands :(

Good luck mate - these days are a lot of money - but worth every penny!

Is there a height limit then?

I've always toyed with the idea of getting one for Mrs Kinky.

Just looked at the height requirements and all it says is:
"Maximum height is 6'5" at Prestwold Hall and 6'3" at Thruxton".
Doesn't say anything about minimum height.
Max weight = 18 stone.:eek:

If £100 is considered sensible, then consider it an offer.

If it's not considered sensible, then think of this posting as a BTT.

Was hoping for a bit more, so I'll give it a week.
If I have no better offer, it's yours if you still want it then.;)

I was thinking of doing this earlier, but couldn't find a suitable category for it. There is only 1 other one listed.

Well it was a while ago I bought the ticket but I finally got round to doing it!
I had a seriously good time :D :bannana:
I got a few laps in an MG road car with the instructor driving, a few laps with me driving followed by one lap of assessment (77%).
Then on to the good stuff; four laps in the F355 :D :D
Six laps in a 2ltr single seater (rev limiter at 4500rpm - 100mph)
One lap in the MG with the instructor driving flat out.
All in all a great day, many thanks to Greame ;)
Photos...
Some mean cars available at Thruxton. The Lambo was yours for £100 (well, yours for three laps anyway!)
Add to this Subaru WRX, Elise, Boxter S...nice!
