Once your racecar is ready and your gear properly adjusted, it’s time to climb into the driver’s seat. After a few pit-side photo shots by our on-staff photographer – who will have the photos available for purchase after you’re done – our staff gets you strapped into a vehicle capable of 155 miles per hour (actual top speeds will vary by tack type). You’ll get earpieces to slip under your helmet so that
you can hear your instructor while you’re on track. We ensure that you’re comfortable and correctly restrained in a 5-point harness, and then you’re ready to race!
Racing the Track
Using an in-car radio, the instructor guides you out onto the track. They’ll work with you and the other students on accelerating, braking, passing, and finding your fastest line.
With your loved ones on the sidelines watching you experience the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of a heart-pumping, white-knuckle race car drive, you focus on the track ahead while the roar of the engine drowns out every other thought. When you finally step out of the racecar to the cheers of your family, you feel like a kid again, and nothing can ever erase that memory. Your dreams have been fulfilled, one lap at a time!
Your Day at the Racetrack
When you arrive, first you’ll check in at the registration trailer on pit road. You’ll fill out your registration form and have a chance to purchase a Ride-Along with a Pro, Vehicle Protection Plan and an In-Car Video, if not already included in your driving package.
After registering, you’re off to fitting, where you will suit up in a fire-retardant racing suit over your clothes. You’re also fitted with a properly sized full-face Bell or Simpson helmet.
Once all the guests have arrived and registered, driver orientation begins. A racing school instructor covers the flags used, how to enter and exit the track, finding your line, passing, and more. By the end of this session, you have everything you need to begin a safe driving experience.
Driver Orientation Recap
Now that you are familiar with the proper driving lines and controls of the racecar, the instructor will recap all of the safety features of the racecar. Finally they will then answer any questions you may still have. Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question. We want to make sure you are completely comfortable with all of the information you have learned.
Ride-Along with a Pro (OPTIONAL & highly recommended)
We recommend going for a Ride-Along with a Pro before getting behind the wheel yourself. It will not only help you get comfortable in a racecar, but you’ll have a better understanding of how the car operates and handles, get a feeling for the racing line while at speed, and see firsthand how fast the car can go on the straightaways and especially in the corners. After a Ride-Along, we find that students feel more comfortable and up to speed. You’ll already be ready for it!
