Question: I bought the three supercar drive as a gift and I wanted to purchase the insurance for them.

On Thursday (4th of June), one of our colleagues received an exciting phone call from one of our top super car driving centres - Supercar Drive Days. Due to a shortage of staff, the next day, at one of their scheduled events, they requested his assistance at the Aldershot track. This entailed a full day in the beautiful sunshine, driving incredible, colourful supercars (mostly convertibles too!)...how awful for him!
If you're a petrol head and car enthusiast then I have no doubt you'll appreciate the following gallery of truly amazing vehicles that you can expect to drive with one of our Experience Days! The centre will also provide an on board video capture through USB interface, and photographs to perfectly commemorate the full driving experience.
Expect expert tuition and the finest and fastest supercars in the world. The cars available include the Aston Martin DB9, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Lamborghini Gallardo, Ferrari 360, Ferrari 430, Nissan GTR and the BMW M3 V8 track car.
