Thoroughly enjoyed the establishment, great selection of cars with a winning history, lots of information and a good set up inside and out. The track looked great! will try the rides on offer next time, make sure you have the time to fully enjoy. Cafe and souvenirs also available. Did not engage with the staff at front counter.
