Now that Jezza Clarkson and chums are limbering up for The Grand Tour season 3, car enthusiasts may find that their accelerator foot is getting twitchy.
Suddenly the reliable family motor seems a little lacklustre and drivers yearn for something a little sportier.
Happily there’s no need for an expensive trip to the showroom.
Today’s Big Deal, courtesy of Supercar Experience Days UK, offers a manageable slice of fantasy with the chance to drive seductive supercars and sleek sports cars.
It’s a taste of life in the fast lane that will appeal to anyone who occasionally wishes the Passat was a Porsche.
Built for speed
Taking place on various dates throughout 2019, these Supercar Experience Days take place at RAF Leuchars Station and Fife Airport in Glenrothes.
At Fife Airport, the runway circuit has some tight turns and a long straight. It makes for a challenging but safe circuit where guests can experience the drive of their lives.
The former RAF base at Leuchars is a massive area for Supercar’s challenging and exciting circuit.
With a hospitality area and roof top viewing balcony showing views over the track – plus the stunning back drop of the nearby town of At Andrews – this is a venue truly not to be missed.
Pick your experience
Today’s Big Deal with Supercar Experience Days UK comes with four options.
Option one is for you to drive three laps in a sports car of your choice. The car on offer is a Porsche Boxster or Lotus Exige.

Supercar Experience Days UK have plenty of fans on Facebook. Recent reviews include the following:
‘Had a brilliant day today at Leuchars Airforce base driving these supercars. Cars were all amazing machines. The set up was excellent… Could park our own cars facing the circuit so spectators (my kids) could watch from our own car if it was poor weather… Staff were great too… helpful and knowledgeable without being overbearing. I’ve done a few of these kind of events and couldn’t fault anything about today. We will definitely book again!’
‘Another fantastic time with Supercars. Great venue at Fife airfield. A big thank you to the team with a special mention to Zoe, Stacey and Scott for making the event special for the boys. I would highly recommend Supercars for that special treat for any petrol head.’
‘Oh my word, what an amazing day. Thank you to everyone that made this such an unforgettable experience… can’t wait till next time.’
Live the dream
Perfect for petrol heads or for anyone with an urge to experience the drive of a lifetime, this Big Deal with Supercar Experience Days UK is an opportunity to experience the thrill of speed before returning to the daily grind of road works on the M8.
