Get behind the wheel the worlds most exciting supercars including the Ferraris, Lamborghinis, GTR's and more for laps around a professionally-designed autocross track with a focus on speed, and exploring what these amazing machines are all about. You will have an intructor in the passenger seat giving you pointers on how to get the most out of your experience. All vehicles have automatic, or F1-style transmissions with paddle shifters, so no stick-shift experience is required! If you're at least 18 years of age and have a drivers' license, you can easily drive one of these high-performance machines in a day that all of your family and friends will envy forever. Not 18 yet or without a license? You can still experience these cars in a ride-along experience where you will ride in the passenger seat while an instructor takes you around the course for some hot laps!
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
All participents must be 18 years of age and possess a valid drivers' license to get behind the wheel. However, participants under age 18 or without a driver's license can still take part in an instructor-driven ride-along experience.
Can I drive more than one car?
Each voucher is good for one car unless stated otherwise. You may purchase additional laps and vouchers on event-day at a discounted rate if you'd like some more time in the cars, or want to try some different ones.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Our Wells Fargo Center location has plenty of free parking for all participants.
Does the purchase price include all fees and taxes?
Yes, the purchase price of all packages includes all fees. Driving experiences themselves are not a taxable item in any state. If you cannot show proof of the required insurance (See the Event Scheduling page of our website for more information), a policy must be purchased at the event. The policy at the event is $40 and covers up to $10,000 in damage with a zero deductible; and covers the participant for the entire event day.
Should I bring any money with me?
Aside from the insurance stated above; we will have t-shirts, hats, and other apparel available for sale at the event. This is a great way to show-off your experience to everybody! If you'd like more laps in the car, or would like to drive another car, you may purchase additional event vouchers on-site at a discounted rate. We accept cash and credit/debit cards for all laps, insurance, and apparel at the event.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
Bring your friends, family, and a smile! Please do not bring pets.
What should I wear to my event?

Can my friends/family take photos or video of my experience?
Due to insurance reasons, only the participant is allowed past the gates to the vehicle area. We offer professional photos for $15, which are available to you via download on our website following the event. The photographer will take numerous photos of the car itself, of you in front of the car, and of you inside of the car. We also offer in-car HD video of your entire experience for $30. If you purchase the photo & video package, it is $40 combined.
