One point two miles. It's not a lot is it? On a motorway, you'd cover that in around a minute with little to no excitement. Try the same distance at speed on someone’s drive, and it’s a very different kettle of fish.

The course at Cholmondeley Power and Speed isn’t carried out on just any old drive, though. There are long straights, tight turns that require huge braking force and plenty of bumps. The biggest one of those comes in the shape of a humpback bridge that virtually guarantees air if you’re travelling reasonably quickly.

It all starts with a small stretch just before the start line on which you can warm your tyres (or showboat). After burning some rubber, you’re faced with a start line that’s slightly downhill. Once you've launched off, you’ve barely time to change up before you’re faced with a narrow bridge that’s outlined with a pair of steel barriers.
