The Aston Martin experience was my 50th birthday present from my wife and I know that it was the best birthday present I could have wished for. The Aston Martin has always been my favourite car and actually driving one was a dream that came true. I would like to ask you to thank Graham for the very professional and personal approach that he managed to give to the experience. He managed to set me at ease before and during the driving of the Aston Martin. It was very helpful to have the tuition (thanks Alistair) in the SEAT in order to get used to the circuit. I very much recommend the experience to my friends and colleagues and I know that at some point I will be back for more!!
Thanks very much for a lovely day’s driving at Knockhill. Having worked in retail all my days I am a stickler for staff being pleasant and friendly to customers, and would like to tell you that you are no1 for this, never before have I been somewhere where this has been the case.
Just had a great morning at Knockhill Racing Circuit Weather was typically Scottish, but that just made the driving more fun :) Thanks to the team at Knockhill for all their hard work. Thoroughly recommend it to everyone :)
