After being presented with an Aston Martin Track day in July as lucky winner of our Heckington Show James Bond Quiz Howard Keeffe has now reported back to us with his experience.
Completing 3 three laps reaching over 100mph in a Black Aston Martin DBS the damp weather didn’t affect Howard’s experience. Aswarby local Howard said: “The feel of the acceleration and power was fantastic and as a young driver the instructor was very reassuring. The preparation was thorough; riding round the track in a Land Rover too was great. It was scary because others were on the track and of course the rain poured down.”
As a reward for braving the heavy wet track conditions Howard was given the opportunity to sit in the back of a Ford Focus RS and whiz round the track a couple of times at over 130 mph. “It was very thrilling and a memorable experience because only a lucky few get a chance to drive a car like this,” added Howard.
Howard thanked us for this experience and said: “It’s a day I will never forget.”
