Northampton Stock Car Racing Championship

Really good fun, especially if you're with friends or in a group. The staff are brilliant and make sure you really enjoy your experience, especially Mark the MD who should be on stage. I highly recommend it, even if you go on your own because you soon make friends with the others in your group and it's a great experience racing these little stock cars. The other things they do to fill the day are all designed around having a laugh as well as testing your driving skills.

My son was the one doing the activities and thoroughly enjoyed it.. As spectators my husband and I enjoyed it.

Northampton Stock Car Racing Championship

Regarding the stock car event, I won the first race from the back of the grid. I won the second race from the back of the grid. In the final, again from the back of the grid, I just moved into first place on the last lap, the race was stopped due to two cars becoming tangled on a bend and the starter made the worst decision since the OJ Simpson trial jury and awarded the race to the guy who caused the stoppage. Nobody in the crowd could believe the misguided result! My dad paid over £200 for my day at Northampton, not to mention over £40 in diesel from our home in Stockport. In motor sport I know sometimes they go back to the lap before but in a short lap format It's ridiculous! However, I didn't let this spoil my day and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Please could you send the trophy to my address because the guy awarded the race was too embarrassed to claim it!!!!

Northampton Stock Car Racing Championship

From the moment I arrived I was greeted by friendly and enthusiastic staff. Once in the briefing room we split into teams to maximise the experience time. The briefing was excellent, it was informative and funny with some great comedy from the instructor. Safety was important but did not come at the expense of fun and you really do get a chance to release all those petrol head ambitions. The highlight was the stock car racing. You raced against men and women just like you in a real race. I can not thank them enough for one of the very best experiences I have ever had. 10/10

We all had a very good day it was very well organised and good value for money, I would definately recommend it to family and friends. Food was very good and we had an unlimited supply of drinks which was very good. My son who did the experience really enjoyed it thanks to all who made it a great day out.

Northampton Stock Car Racing Championship

This is not just a stock car experience it's an action packed full on day. To be able to get behind the wheel of the f2 stock cars that I've been watching for so many years was the pinnacle of my day only think I say is that you don't get long enough in them.. You also get to do do the del boy challenge which is hilarious then on to the nag drag trying to keep your ball on your professional challenge flying around in an old volvo banger as fast as you can...on the the push me pull you...felt some what strange as you crab the cab through cones...the staff are so friendly and are their helping and having a laugh all through the day making it a day...would highly recommend this to any one

Northampton Stock Car Racing Championship in Coventry

I attended the Ultimate Stock Car event on 09.05.15, having done a few experience days now I have to say this was by far the best and most organised. From arrival to departure everything was taken care off, the events were great fun, all of the staff were excellent - knowledgeable, friendly and passionate about what they do, and everyone went home with smiles on their faces. I would definitely recommend this experience if you like your speed, adrenaline, and cars.

Northampton Stock Car Racing Championship in Northampton

Very good day with not much hanging about despite the number of different activities. Enthusiasm and helpfulness of the staff helped the day even better. Would have preferred more time in the actual stock cars but did not really detract from the overall experience

- Gordon, 23/10/2013

Northampton Stock Car Racing Championship in Northampton

I bought this package as a birthday gift for my wife, she had a great day and would recommend it to others. The staff were very welcoming and were very accommodating, great apple pie and Black Forest gateaux and even let dogs on the premises providing they obviously stay on leads.

- Alan, 25/08/2013

Northampton Stock Car Racing Championship in Northampton

The Staff were excellent and really friendly! However, maybe a little less time at the beginning spent talking because we just wanted to get in the cars!

- andy, 06/12/2011

Very good value for money, most laps I've ever had on one of these days. Track and cars a bit basic but WHAT FUN and great staff

Northampton Stock Car Racing Championship in Northampton

Brilliant day. Best fun you can have with clothes on. Del Boy challenge was superb. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

- Graham, 11/07/2011

Northampton Stock Car Racing Championship in Northampton

An excellent day overall. Very friendly and knowledgable staff. Some of the cars were a bit battle-worn and damaged - you had to get the right F2 to be competitive! I could have done the F2's all day! The banger was excellent, as was the reliant robin, and the push-me-pull-you car was very interesting. The viewing on the in-field was more interesting than I thought it would be, and the movie would have been good for newcomers to the sport. Overall good value for money, and a real thrill. When can I go again???

- Dan, 04/07/2011

This was a fantastic day, which was very well organised and great fun. It's something I never thought I'd be able to do - race Superstox for real. I'd highly recommend the day. If you want race action on an oval circuit, give it a go! My family were also able to watch throughout the day.

- Lee, 07/10/2009
The Stockcar Racing Championship Day is one of our firm favourites here at Extreme Element and has been one of the best sellers for the past four years. We caught up with Mark from Motor Racing Live, the company that supplies the Stockcar Experience as well as some of the other top experiences on our site!

Hi Mark, thanks for talking to us today. So how and when did you get started in Stock Car Racing?
Stockcar racing has been in my family for 40 years – my father started selling newspapers at Hednesford Hills Raceway, and eventually went on to become the co-owner of the track. I have been watching Stockcar racing for 30 years and became managing director of one of the main promoters of the sport fifteen years ago.

What other aspects of stock car racing are you involved with?
I started off as a race commentator which is still my favourite job. After selling our three tracks 5 years ago, we now focus on running experience days.

What is your favourite part of your job?
Our experience days are fairly extreme – and very different from most car experiences. We give participants the chance to really race in real racing cars! And with trophies, commentators, marshals etc. We try and give people the ultimate motorsport experience. I like doing something that no other company does.

What makes Stock Car Racing so different from other forms of racing?
Stockcar racing is the most intense motorsport around. It is awesome for spectators – you can see all of the action, all of the time. There are more overtaking moves in one lap than in a whole season in most other motor racing formulas. The sport survives because of the huge spectator appeal - with average crowds at an event topping 3000! The cars are powerful, aggressive and very exciting to drive.

What made you set up a stock car experience?
Stockcar racing is a ghetto motorsport – in that it has a cult following, but isn’t widely known about. We wanted to open up the sport to a broader range of people. We also felt that, after karting, there really wasn’t anywhere that people could go to race bigger, faster and more exciting cars. We wanted to create a real motor racing experience that could be a step on from karting.

How long have you been offering experiences?
We started out first experience 10 years ago (Stockcar Championship Race Day), launched Extreme Dodgems 6 years ago and since then have created Auto Stunt School, Wacky Racers and Star in a Car – over the years more than 40,000 people have taken part.

What is the biggest event you have held at Motor Racing Live?
We created an event call “Civil War” – the biggest Banger Demolition Derby in the World – two armies (North and South), 160 cars, 1 left moving at the end! It is in its 12 year now and attracts 10,000 people to Hednesford Raceway every January to watch – madness!

What makes your experiences so great?
I think we offer events that no one else would ever dare to do!
In Wacky Racers you get to travel on open roads in a Street-Legal bed!
In Star in a Car you get to compete to win £1000 on a race track.
In Auto Stunt School we will teach you the most extreme things you can do in a car, and in the Stockcar Raceday and Extreme Dodgems you get to race real racing cars, through Heats and Finals, for massive trophies!!

Why do you think stock car racing makes a unique gift?
A Stockcar racing experience if perfect for anyone who loves cars, and is looking for something that is a bit different and memorable. Our experiences are usually full days, include lunch and offer something very different from the run-of-the-mill car experiences.

What can customers expect from a day at your centre?
Most of our experiences offer many different events during the course of the day. So expect 5 or 6 different challenges alongside the racing.
Groups sizes are small (usually 6 per group) and we are totally dedicated to making sure you have the best time ever!

What sort of people takes part in the Stock Car experiences?
Most days attract a broad range of ages and abilities – there is absolutely no need to have had any racing experience – and we often have winners who have never done anything other than drive their road car. You just need to be prepared to have a lot of fun!

Are there any additions you hope to make in the coming years?
We are always coming up with new events and experiences – and at the moment have just launched our tree house experience in Wales - which is a big change from Motorsport.
We are also working on a top secret new experience for Christmas 2012 - watch out for it on the Extreme Element web site!

That's great, thanks Mark - we will be looking forward to finding out about the new experience! If you would like to book on to any of Motor Racing Lives' experiences, check them out below or on our site!
