Passenger Experience Testimonial

We asked Dorset-based author Jo Kemp to write a testimonial on her Calum Lockie passenger experience…

I can do this! It’s only a car (that I won’t be driving) and it’ll be no more than 20 minutes or so around a racetrack. Granted… there are one or two sharp bends but it’s a circular racetrack and anyway, I’ll be in the experienced hands of Calum Lockie. 

Easy-peasy I thought as I was trussed into the passenger seat then it slowly dawned on me that this was very, very REAL. This was no ordinary car. This was a mean souped-up Porsche 911 and Calum wasn’t going to take any prisoners. He didn’t.


Ultimate Passenger Experience

A G-force, adrenaline filled, white knuckle terror of a passenger experience. Being driven at high speed around one of the legendary UK race circuits, without any ability to hit the breaks.

Several laps at breathless speeds with champion racing driver/instructor Calum Lockie.

Passenger experience with Calum Lockie and Author Jo Kemp Goldtrack Days

Hanging on for grim death we achieved a staggering 155mph during what was one of the most exciting, exhilarating and terrifying bucket list experiences of a lifetime.

Honestly, this is something we all need to do. Never mind fairground rides and the like.  This was the speed that was REAL and in the hands of someone whose experience is REAL, and I will never ever watch motor racing or a car chase again without reliving the total thrill of that 20 minutes around a windswept hill known as Thruxton.
