So whats the criteria for this year’s most memorable Christmas present? Adrenalin? Hair-raising? Thrill a second? Perma-grin?
If you want to tick any of the above, how about offering a loved one the chance to strap themselves into one of the best handling cars in the world?
From just £99, you could treat them to an unforgettable experience behind the wheel of the legendary Caterham Seven at one of the carmakers truly unique Slalom, Track or Drift events.
And don’t just think it’s a treat for thrill-seeking boys; 30 per cent of vouchers are sold for female recipients.
Although it has just celebrated its 50th anniversary, the Seven remains the closest thing to a racing car on the road. Stripped to the very basics, the two-seater made famous by cult 1960s TV show, The Prisoner, can accelerate to 60mph in less than 5 seconds, and can embarrass any Ferrari or Porsche on the track.
