I am looking for a driving experience day - the problem is that it must be in an Automatic car...
(either off road or track) and preferably in S England 
Any suggestions welcome.....

    A skid pan at Castle Coombe - years since I did it but scary - bald tyres and oil surfaces don't go together well -  don't know about automatic

    Never pay on an estimated bill

    Thanks - I did one of those (in a Vauxhall Viva (remember them ?) at Goodwood - 35 years ago
    I am really looking for a thrill inducing driving experience and it MUST be in an automatic vehicle !

    Supercar days will be fine. Ferrari, Aston and Lambo are all clutchless paddles that you can drive on an automatic licence.
    This space for hire.

    I did the one where you drive one of the last "real" General Lee cars used in the original Dukes Of Hazzard series.
    That was automatic.
    Because I'd paid for that they open up all the other cars to a tenner a lap.
    Ariel Atom was great as a passenger.
    Car Chase Heroes they were called.
    I went to Blyton Park but there were other venues available.

    I do have a full licence - but have only driven automatics for the last 20 years !
