          I was given a driving experience day as a Birthday present.

          I chose to do it at U-Drive Cars at Upper Heyford who also have a Mustang available:

          https://www.udrivecars.com/experienc...mustang-drive/

          I didn't chose to drive a Mustang as I'd rather drive my own!

          I had a good time but being on an old Airfield the "track" was nothing more than two parallel straights with a turn at each end so didn't take very long to complete and 3 drives in 3 different cars was over in probably less than 20 minutes.

          Looking at this company on Google Maps they do seem to have a few "tracks" but again nothing particularly complex:

          Click image for larger version  Name:	driftlimits.jpg Views:	0 Size:	181.4 KB ID:	1238804

          So the 10 laps will unlikely last long.....

          Also check the small print / terms and conditions / extras.

          On my experience with U Drive Cars there was a 25 surcharge for Saturday bookings and also a 25+5 per extra car Damage Waiver otherwise you were liable for any damage caused by yourself or other drivers on track at the same time as you. I took the afternoon off work to go on a Friday to avoid the surcharge but still ended up having to pay an extra 35 for the damage waiver not because I didn't trust myself but because I didn't trust others on track!

          Then there is the pressurisation to buy photos / videos at exorbitant prices, I think it was something like 25 for photos or 45 for photos + video.

          Looking at the GroupOn link for this experience with Drift Limits it says:

          39 per person surcharge for Sat bookings

          And when you go to their website they also have a similar Collision Damage Waiver:

          https://driftlimits.co.uk/experience...damage-waiver/

          So just consider that if you go on a Saturday and take the CDW its an extra 64 on top of the price and they'll probably try and push you to buy photos/videos etc.

            Thats the price to get you to book.

            They likely make their money by all the added extras as I've highlighted in the post above.

                  A: Buying the "extras" is optional, not compulsory and
                  B: Hiw much would you spend for a night at the pub/ theatre/ whatever - which would only be a memory (unless you photograph yourself?)

                  Ultimately, if you would like to do this, it is cheaper this way. Everything you buy has small print and caveats, so what's new?

                    Sounds like you are getting a little upset.
                    I agreed with you that it seemed like a good price BUT as Mike mentioned it's not as good as it first seems.
                    Only been to the theatre once and I don't drink.

                      Nothing new but just making people aware of the potential extra costs and that whilst 10 laps sounds a lot, looking at the size of the track it will likely last less than 10 minutes.
