The hot tub pod was great, most things are provided, including towels, gowns and slippers. The pods are in a lovely area secluded from main roads, they are far enough away from the neighbouring pods to be a little more private. The only downside i...More

Small, tight track. No room to overtake. Lap timer doesn't work properly, misses laps regularly ruining the 'Grand Prix' experience that we paid extra for. Staff are uninterested, take too long to rescue drivers or fix track. Avoid.
