York Supercar Driving

This weekend (14th, June) I went to Elvington Airfield in York to drive an Aston Martin and a Ferrari. This was a Christmas present but I couldn't book until this weekend.

We stayed overnight at a nice hotel near York and went to York Dungeons on Saturday morning.

In the afternoon, I had two ten minute drives in a supercar. I was a bit nervous but soon got the hang of driving, thanks to some good instruction. It was great speeding down the straights. I'd now like a lap in a radical car like the Aerial Atom.

I was surprised to learn that I was driving at the place where Richard Hammond off Top Gear was nearly killed.
