Driver experience at Elvington, York. A Maclaren for spiderman's dad. He enjoyed it, but the spectator facilities weren't great.
Next door is the Yorkshire Air Museum & Allied Air Forces Memorial. Worth a visit even for non-aeroplane fans. Some glorification of war, but also a fitting tribute to everyone who fought and supported the air battles, particularly bomber command. And there is a NAAFI. Great sections on Barnes-Wallace and Neville Schute (Norway, before he wrote books). Didn't get round it all - our attention spans are half our ages.
Geoffrey was surprisingly humble, entertaining and informative. Goodness me the drinks are expensive.
