Review of the experience:

The whole process of booking in, paying, and activating the experience was very easy. There was an element of choice as to the time slot and the activity, meaning that even though we didn’t have the option to choose the type of Aston Martin, the time slot was flexible. The email and text message confirmation kept to the details of the schedule.

The location of the activity was very easy to find. It was only a few minutes’ walk from the Ferrari World theme park and entirely adequate for the purpose it served.

On arrival at the venue we were welcomed by a polite and professional team. The area where the activity took place was well-maintained, clean, and calm.

It was a surprise that the technical training session was before driving the Aston Martin. In the actual driving activity, the instructor began by explaining the controls and started to show how to improve one’s own driving technique. It might have been more effective to have explained the controls before the training session. The instructor was very professional, reliable, and friendly, narrating fantastically, but it would would have been better to have an additional instructor to explain the safety features during the driving. Our instructor forgot to apply the hand brake during the actual driving activity, which was very dangerous and needs to be mentioned.

The Aston Martin was very comfortable to sit in, the controls very practical, and the engine very powerful. The sound it makes was fantastic, though a bit too loud and the smell of petrol too strong for many people. The driving experience was fantastic, fast, exciting, and full of adrenaline.

When the moment came to stop the engine, all that could be heard was the wind and the tyres, and the most prominent smell was that of dust. This may have been because the track had been built in the desert, but this was not announced at any time by the staff.

We were a bit surprised to find out that there was no mention of how we should get back to our parking place, or any suggestions as to where one could find an alternative route if we were to be left stranded. There were no landmarks in the area to help us navigate our way back to the parking place.

The staff were all courteous and polite throughout the experience. The facilities were excellent, easily accessible, very clean and well-maintained.

Verdict:

The whole experience was very well-planned with fantastic facilities and talented instructors. As this was the first experience for many of us in the group, all of us were very excited to have driven a very expensive car on a race track and have been awed by the possibilities. That being said, this has been one of the favourite experiences of 2017 for the EOTB Challenge family. Thanks to the giving nature of the Aston Martin employees the whole group were offered a second round of driving, making this the best deal for us. The experience itself was thrilling and enjoyable. The car was very fast which makes it more thrilling. Our driving instructor talked a lot, before even taking us out on the track, meaning that we knew exactly what to do during the driving part of the experience. We were offered the best seats from the starting line, meaning that we could take the best shots of the car on the track. The instructors also allowed us to stop during the driving session, and the petrol vapours didn’t make things any easier. All of this meant that the whole experience was very safe, despite being very thrilling.
