So at the start of this month I fulfilled one of the wishes on my bucketlist and it was amazing! Genuinely one of the best days of my life. I really want to do it again!
I was treated to a day at Ingliston and my voucher untitled me to drive 2 of the supercars. I had my hopes pinned on driving a Lamborghini Gallardo and either a BMW i8 or an Aston Martin. I really couldn't decide which to go for.... I adore BMWs but I always wanted to drive an Aston Martin to feel like James Bond! The bf flipped a coin because I couldn't decide and the BMW won. I am so glad it did.
Both cars were outstanding to drive. A far cry from Bruce the Astra! Don't get me wrong, I love my Bruce boy but the supercars were something else entirely.
I drove the BMW i8 first and I could have driven it all day. I did 3 laps around the track and it felt like I was driving on clouds. It is a hybrid car and can run purely on electricity or petrol but I hardly felt a difference between the two. I did 2 laps running on electricity and 1 lap using the engine. I wish I could have taken it home. It was so quiet and smooth to drive. It was so fast!! I'd be on the road non stop if I had a car like that. It was easily my favourite of the two cars.
After the BMW I moved onto the Lambo. I loved that too! I thought it was a little heavier to drive than the BMW but it was still amazing. I would have gladly taken it off their hands! In a little coincidence, its orange colour matched my nails. Was it a sign from above that it was made for me? I think it was. I loved the yellow colour more (yellow is my favourite colour) but it was taken off the track before I got a chance to drive it. You should have heard the noise it made when I put my foot down! It was magical.
After driving my two amazing cars I got a passenger ride in an Ariel Atom. Those are wee rockets! Its great zooming about in them, I'd love to have driven one but I wouldn't have done it justice.
After my amazing day we went for dinner and I was floating on air. I am so glad I got the chance to cross this off my bucketlist. Definitely a day to remember!
