What Can I Expect

Mixing up the big tyres with the slicks on this Supercar vs Truck Challenge! This inspired combination will see you driving both a full sized HGV truck and a glamorous supercar at your choice of different driving grounds across the UK.

Of course, both drives are completely different. The truck is big, bulky and a real challenge to get to grips with, as you sit high above the road in your proper trucker's seat. Then there's the supercar that's incredibly low to the ground (be prepared for being just centimetres from the tarmac!) and very, very fast, so it'll be interesting to see which vehicle you'll prefer, in a kind of motoring equivalent of a hare and tortoise style encounter!

This unique chunky truck versus funky supercar challenge experience is available at various venues, all of which are top-notch driving centres, well away from the congestion of the public roads. Which is perhaps just as well, as you'll be in a truck towering over all the other cars without an HGV licence (and don't worry, it's not needed for this challenge as you'll be driving the truck on private roads).

You will be driving one of the automatic DAF trucks used as a car transporter, on the perimeter roads around the circuit, whilst the spin out in the supercar will take place on the actual track. Both different zones of play, but both utterly brilliant in their own way. Which sports car you want to drive is up to you and there's a fine selection to choose from, including the Ariel Atom, the Porsche 997, Lamborghini Gallardo and more.

Your truck challenge session will see you enjoying 15 minutes of truckin' with a fully qualified HGV instructor next to you in the cab and three laps around the smooth tarmac of the race track in the supercar you've chosen. Just don't forgot your Yorkie bar for the truck and those swanky sunglasses for the supercar bit!

I went on the 6th gear driving experience on saturday the 5th nov. Driving the car i loved and the photos were great. However i felt very rushed when i came to driving the truck. This is what i was most looking forward too. I was the last to drive and it was running 30 so miuntes late. By the time it was my turned the guys were packing away and i felt i was not given a proper truck experience. I was even rushed when it came to choosing my photo as they were trying to pack away. I was left very down hearted.

Very good experience - particularly the chance to drive and reverse an HGV. Very good instructors. We booked double experiences so we had plenty of time driving. Just be prepared clothing wise - it rained all the time we were there and although there was shelter, make sure you are prepared for rain.

Overall experience was fantastic - it exceeded my anticipation! Only niggle was a slightly rude and abrupt who 'supervised' me during my super at experience - he seemed to have left his sense of humour at home, which was a shame.

Fantastic day out. Would recommend this for anyone. Very professional polite and easy to talk to company. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. One of the best days out I have ever had

This was a present, so in terms of value for money, I have no idea! In terms of enjoyment....it was FAB! I don't think I will be swapping jobs any time sooner to be a trucker, but I may need to find somebody super rich to provide me with a Supercar!! Drove the Ferrari f430, and I loved it! The instructors were all really friendly and put you at ease! Great time had, just wish it had lasted longer!!
