Black Friday is upon us, but it’s not just products you can cash in on, it’s experiences too! Here are some of the best Black Friday experience day deals we could find.
Some things cost a lot of money, and some things could get you into a lot of trouble. But often, that’s where the fun lies, especially if you combine the two. Fortunately, experience days exist to give us a taste of driving our dream cars, or seeing if we could get away from the police – all without having to pay the extortionate dealer prices, or risking a night in one of His Majesty’s finest prison cells.
So, we’ve collated several of the best Black Friday experience day deals around, each designed to bring a bit of joy into the lives of petrolheads. Let’s get straight into it, shall we?
Best Black Friday experience day deals
Drifting experience – save 73%
£256£69, get the deal here.
If you’re into cars, drifting is one of those things that you’d probably love to have a go at. But, at the end of the day, it’s a skill that you need to learn over time, and most of us don’t have the time or private space to give it a proper go. It’s even more difficult if you don’t have the right sort of car, either. Fortunately, nowadays you can book experience days like this one where you’ll be given the keys to something old and rear-wheel drive, and then be taught by a pro how to slide it in a controlled manner.
This particular deal is for a half-day experience, featuring a tutoring session, followed by four attempts of the full drift course. Then you can tag along for some passenger rides to get another kick of adrenaline.
Single Seater Race Car experience – save 69%
£159£49, get the deal here.
Ever wanted to know what it’s like to drive a purpose-built single seater racecar? Well, this experience day will give you some track driving tutoring, followed by 6 miles of the Prestwold Driving Centre circuit behind the wheel of one of these junior formula cars, dressed up in F1 liveries of course.
Goodwood Triple Supercar experience – save 55%
£297£135, get the deal here.
Goodwood is one of the most historic, and arguably iconic, racing circuits in the world – let alone the UK. This experience day will see you get to experience the real track first-hand, behind the wheel of three different supercars. The selection to choose from includes models from Ariel, Aston Martin, Audi, Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Nissan, and Porsche.
Police Pursuit experience – save 45%
£218£119, get the deal here.
Come on, we’ve all thought about it. How handy do your reckon you’d be at losing the cops in a chase? Well, there’s one way to find out for certain, without having to do it for real. This experience day involves trying to shake a professionally-driven Dodge Charger while driving what the company describes as a ‘Pro Series’ car. The example image supplied shows a Porsche Boxster, but we imagine they probably have a pool of similarly powerful vehicles, all a little meatier than the Mazda MX-5 NBs used in the entry level experience. Either way, 10 minutes of tuition followed by a 15-minute game of cat and mouse sounds like a whole lot of fun to me.
Junior Supercar experience – save 41%
£74£44, get the deal here.
With Christmas just around the corner, perhaps there’s a young petrolhead in your family that you think deserves a cool treat. Junior supercar experiences are the perfect answer to that conundrum. A professional instructor will guide children aged 11-16 around the track in their pick of supercars, for up to three miles of seat time. As an introduction to the world of cars, there aren’t many better ways to start…
