What about Insurance?

The centres contracted with us hold public liability insurance. We also hold contingency liability cover.

Some operators require customers to complete an indemnity/damage waiver form prior to taking the experience. This may state the driver is liable for a fixed amount of costs should they damage the vehicle whilst driving. Most operators are able to provide additional insurance to cover this at a small additional fee, payable on site. The purchase of this is optional and is in addition to the public liability insurance held by all venues. The full details of any indemnity or damage waiver and additional insurance will be provided by the activity operator. WonderDays is unable to advise or comment on the content or suitability of any such waiver or additional insurance.

How it Works

All you have to do is pay for the experience you wish to purchase and we’ll send a voucher and booking information to you or directly to the recipient, then you just need to check the info and book your experience.

For each supercar experience that you purchase, you will be allocated three miles per car. For example, if you purchase the triple supercar experience you will be allocated 9 miles in total. How long you are physically on the track really depends on how fast you want to drive!

Please be aware that all driving experiences are completely outdoors and open to the elements. It's always worth packing a coat or umbrella even if the forecast looks sunny as airfields and circuits tend to be very windy!

Drivers should wear sensible shoes or trainers for driving and comfy trousers. Legs must be fully covered if you're driving the Shelby Cobra or Mustang GT350 as these cars have side exit exhausts that get very warm!

Do all cars run in the rain?

Yes, events are run in all weathers unless it is deemed so extreme that it is unsafe to be on the track.

Do I have to drive quickly?

Not at all, the trainers will help you enjoy the drive however you would like to.
