Using the experiences gained during years as a professional racecar driver and builder, Competition 101 Racing School founder Stuart Lycett trains the next generation of podium finishers during one-on-one racing lessons. Whether behind the wheel of stock cars, Trans Am T2 sports cars, sprint cars, or open-wheel cars, pupils soak in on-track experience on dirt tracks, short ovals, speedways, or road circuits while radios and on-board video cameras record every turn for scrutiny during future feedback sessions.
In addition to their introductory class, instructors also offer one-, two-, and three-day school programs. After the three-day program, studious speedsters may complete their training by competing in a sanctioned race event in front of paying spectators and a real checkered flag. Stuart and his crew also welcome interns willing to work for six months in exchange for a free three-day racing school program.
Even for regular visitors to Battle City Laser Tag, it's hard to get stuck in a rut. At their outdoor facility, the staff here oversee several different games, including traditional options such as Capture the Flag, and Search and Destroy, as well as mission-based games, such as Defend the Gate, all of which are more fun than using the laser guns to play limbo. As an alternative to light-based play, guests strap on the yellow vests of water tag and chase each other armed with markers that shoot streams up to 35-feet long. The staff will also put together a mobile unit for laser or water tag parties at celebrants' homes.
