A Dumfries businessman is giving people the chance to drive quarter-of-a-million-pound supercars, by opening a driving experience centre near Carlisle.

The professional driving instructors running the experience days say they can actually improve your driving.

You will get the cars up to quite a speed but you will be in the car with one of our instructors. It really isn't an opportunity to come and hammer the car, it's an opportunity to experience the car and be instructed in a safe way to drive."

– Andy Gordon, Supercar instructor
