Looking for something a little more inspiring than a bunch of flowers this Valentine’s Day? Why not swap the cost of florals and chocs for a supercar blast around an iconic UK race track?
Don’t think you’ll pay supercar prices, either, with research from TrackDays.co.uk revealing a hi-octane experience will cost around the same as traditional Valentine Day gifts.
With men spending an average of 50 per cent more on gifts than their partners, could it be time to invest wisely by bagging a gift that’ll actually be remembered.
Models on offer fromTrackDays.co.uk include McLaren, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Ferrari and Porsche. All available at more than 40 circuits across the UK.
There’s also a selection of supercar rides for two, for those who just can’t bare to be apart. These include a 100mph+ experiences at the awesome Rockingham oval.
