  • Adrenaline at its best. First experience of drag racing and I highly recommend it. Be warned though, not for the faint hearted. Good food options and drinks too. No alcohol so that was great to for families.
  • Fun day out but be sure to take high quality hearing protection!! Also take plenty of sunscreen, hat and comfee chair! Having to wait in a queue for 10 minutes at possibly the only coffee cart only to then find they had run out of pretty much everything and there was a 30 minute wait on the coffee was, well, disappointing... next time I'll take a thermos!
