Made a 16 year old very happy

I purchased this for my son's 16th birthday he was a bit nervous but the guys in Leicester made him feel at ease and before long was taking his position in the driving seat. Really good value for money and so was the 50-60 photographs he also received. Would consider something like this for a hen party if any of my daughters ever get married.

A brilliantly enjoyable day! All went smoothly as clockwork. Staff made me feel welcome and the tuition was excellent. A generous amount of time was allowed at the controls and the associated museum was the icing on the cake; some great historical exhibits. make sure you take advantage of the available photographs taken during your experience; I came away with over a hundred digital images on c.d. which provides the perfect memento of a very satisfying day out. Recommended and a sincere "thank you" to all the Armourgeddon staff!
