PW is back on track after sports car experience!
A car-loving resident at Heathcotes’ Knollbeck services has realised a long-held dream to ride in a Lamborghini, thanks to the efforts of our support staff!
PW has always been a petrolhead. His favourite film is Fast & Furious and he likes to attend motor shows whenever possible. PW has often expressed his desire to get behind the wheel of a classic sports car and being unable to drive has never dampened that ambition! Staff at Knollbeck put their minds to finding a way for PW to experience the next best thing with a ride in the passenger seat. They researched potential options and found a specialist company, Driving Experiences, that offered the perfect day out for PW.
Driving Experiences offered a range of iconic motors to choose from. PW picked three sports cars, including a Lamborghini and a Porsche, and staff booked him in for a session of burning rubber at Elvington Race Track in York. It proved to be the experience of a lifetime for PW and the occasion lived up to all his expectations.
Jodie Bramhall, Service Manager at Knollbeck, described the day:
“PW loved every minute and the staff have been wonderful in supporting him and helping to make it happen. The driver from Driving Experiences was brilliant all day and I would definitely recommend the company. Special mention must go to one of our Support Workers, Jo Lyons. Because PW needed to be accompanied by someone who could drive, Jo came into the service at 6am on her day off to enable PW to get to York by 8am for his booking. The cars were two-seaters and Jo herself was booked in for one of the drives, but she gave up her spot so that PW could have an extra ride.
“PW had been displaying some negative behaviour in the preceding weeks, but the day at Elvington Race Track turned things around. It changed his mood and enabled us to engage with him, so the effects were very helpful.”
Fantastic work from the support team at Knollbeck – with their help, PW has steered back on track with positive change!
