What if I want to book a group?
We are able to book groups of 6 and up. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 401-543-3278
How fast will I be able to go?
Our number 1 question, it really varies by the track you choose and if you choose a car upgrade. At a big track like Michigan with an upgrade to our Extreme car you will hit speeds North of 150MPH. At a short track like Bristol speeds are closer to 100MPH, HOWEVER the sensation of speed at Bristol is higher than that of Michigan. It’s all relative, and short tracks provide a big adrenaline rush but 1.5 miles and over provide the highest top speeds.
Do I need any prior racing experience?
Absolutely not! In fact, it will be the first time doing the experience for over 90 percent of the drivers in your class! Don’t be concerned, our classroom instruction has been developed for years. We will have you up to speed, driving the correct line FAST on your day at the track. If you have really want to know how the Pro’s do it, consider taking a ride along first. It is a huge help!
How long is the event?
The event last will last 2-3 hours for driving experiences and 1-2 hours for ride-alongs. For either event you should show up 30 minutes prior to your scheduled time. Ride-alongs only are done within the hour you are scheduled for. Customers who have a ride along and a driving experienced booked will do their ride-alongs first.
Customers with driving experience – arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled time for registration. At your scheduled time you will head into the safety class which will last up to 45 minutes. Then you will head out to the track and get suited up. You will do your driving experience within the following hour of your schedule time. EX: Scheduled for 10am, arrive at 9:30am for registration. Head to safety class at 10am. Head out to the track and get suited up at 10:45am. On track driving between 11am & 12pm.
**We always suggest to plan for an extra hour do to any on track delays.
What happens if it rains?
We will make every effort to get your experience in however if not each participant will be given the option to reschedule on a new track date or be issued a rain certificate to be used within 1 year from the date it was issued.
