The experience begins with a team of seasoned instructors briefing you on safety procedures, racing theory, and everything you need to know to get your lap times down and your speeds up. They’ll explain how to enter and exit the track, flags used, passing, finding the line, and much more.

Then its time to feed the need for speed and climb into the driver’s seat. A crew member will make sure you are secured into your 5-point racing harness and your one-way radio is connected to your helmet. They will be giving you guidance via the one-way radio on driving safely as you get your speed up to a mind-blowing level. You will be able to hear the instructor the entire time you are on the track.

It’s just you alone in the car putting your driving skills to the ultimate test!
