 MALLALA - 16th October 2011
Hi all at V8Race. My name is Peter Penfold.

I had the ABSOLUTE PLEASURE of experiencing V8race today at Mallala Raceway. I felt compelled to send this email to dearly thank each and every staff member from the lady who signed me in right up to the gentlemen who helped me out of my race suit today.

Considering the vast amount of people you guys had to get through for the day, each and every person along the full day were just so courteous and friendly, it just added to what was a most fantastic day. My in car coach, Scott, was just fantastic.

My wife and kids had saved for a darn long time to see me spoilt today as a fathers day gift and what it day it was.

Thank you once again for such a memory and the staff who helped make that memory stick in your customers minds for a darn long time.

 MALLALA - 16th October 2011
The only thing that one can say is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME. There were 3 of us that did the experience together and here we are 24 hours later, still raving about our experience. The setup was professional, well organised and everyone that assisted us from the initial check in, drivers briefing, to the suit and helmet crew, to the lady photographer, and the sales staff when collecting our photos were friendly, jovial, corteous and just plain great. I had the opportunity of having Craig Williams as my coach when I was behind the wheel, who was the consumate professional, very personable and at all times was calm, reassuring and helped me to get the best out of myself behind the wheel. We also had a number of guests that attended who are now also interested in doing such an event. I have told everyone about this great experience and will continue to do so for some time, most probablY up until the next time I do this, because i certainly will be booking in for another V8 Drive. If you ever need an ambassador for FreemanX just call me. Congratulations to you all for such a wonderful time, and thank you for making my V8 drive so much more than special. My daughter also had the front seat ride in the V8 Drive and her opinion reflects mine, and while she is on her L's now she is looking forward to the opportunity one day of doing a V8 drive. Once again sincerest thanks for one of the best days of my life.

 EASTERN CREEK - 8th July 2009
The V8 race day experience was a birthday present for my partner Mat, and i can honestly say it was the just such an AWESOME experience for him .It will be a day we will be talking about for ever and a day. We were so excited to be able to see John Bowe. I was just in awe with the whole experience. All the staff should be highly commended, from the moment we were greeted at the gate to the moment we left to head home we felt that each and every staff member went out of their way to ensure we were safe and having the best day possible. Thank you for making our day memorable. 

 EASTERN CREEK - 7th July 2009
Thank you very much for helping me to realize a long standing dream I've had for as long as I can remember. A big thank you to the people at the V8 race who run a very friendly and professional outfit. This is definitely the BEST FUN I'VE EVER HAD SITTING DOWN. The coach I had sitting beside me in the car, made me feel very comfortable in the drivers seat by providing me with confident and sound advice on how to enjoy my experience to the fullest and actually egged me on to push harder, thanks Darryl. A very worthwhile experience I won't forget. Thanks again. 

The team at V8Race were VERY PROFESSIONAL and communicated very clearly with all the drivers & punters. The drive was delayed by rain however the staff were very professional, upbeat and positive on the day. Great experience, thank you - its a shame the experience was over quickly!. Cheers

Had a wonderful day,I WAS IMPRESSED by the professionalism of all your staff and would have no hesitation in recommending this experience to friends. Thanks again.

The experience of driving the V8 around Eastern Creek was great. The instructor was fantastic and was extremely clear and helpful in his instructions on how to drive around the track... I am planning on do this experience again later in the year, but this time opting for a longer stint as the 5 laps go way to fast. Thanks again and hope to see you all soon. 10 OUT OF 10

I had a fantastic time, it was very well organised, the SAFETY was their priority and all the staff were very nice and friendly. My coach was great!! (his name is Mick) i couldn't of ask for any thing more. It was awsome and i can't wait to go back and do it again. 


BRILLIANT - best birthday present ever!
I had organised the event for my brother in laws 50th and he was gobsmacked when he received the voucher. He couldn't believe it and the expectations were massive and the race day experience actual exceeded his expectations. Unbelievable!

The staff were very accommodating, the instructor was very friendly, great customer service.
On top of that he organised for the event to be captured on DVD and he now also has the opportunity to relive the event when ever he wants to.All round a great day thoroughly enjoyed it and was an absolute highlight. He said it was the best birthday present ever.

 One of the BEST DAYS of my life


FABULOUS - I had a great time. The driver was truly exceptional and i wish i could have done another 6 laps after gaining the confidence in the car. Thanks so much for the opportunity i would definitely do it again and recommend it to others.

 FANTASTIC. Great experience. My wife and I are now saving for 10 laps each....

Had a great day, my husband THOROUGHLY ENJOYED the whole experience and would recommend it other people. It was a better time than expected
