Knockhill Racing Circuit

Yesterday I was lucky enough to have an Ultimate Drivers Day experience at Knockhill, which is just over an hour away. I'm afraid I do not have many photos, but I have great footage on video.
It was a wet drive down, but cleared up quickly and stayed dry until late afternoon. The first drive of the day was in a SEAT Ibiza, learning how to go around the racing circuit. This was followed by a solo drive in single seater mini racing car, it was great fun. Unfortunately by the time you were getting comfortable with driving it, it was time to finish. It was then time for the go-karting. After a quick lunch break it was time for the rally driving on a specially built rally stage. I have to say the rally driving was my favourite part of the day and at the end the instructor went into the driving seat and took you round the course showing just how it should be done.
The whole day was run very smoothly, hardly any hanging around, and I was surprised at just how many people were at the circuit doing one of the many 'experiences' they have on offer. I received mine as a present, so if you are stuck for present ideas, try Knockhill.
