This was a graduation gift for my son. We got the 16 lap package and we are so glad we did. He got 4 laps at the end all to himself! He had a blast and it was so great to see him out there fulfilling one of his dreams. Just a couple notes: you may want to bring extra ice cold waters (when he got out of the car he was so hot!). They sell bottled water there but it's $2. each. Also I brought a change of clothes for him. Glad I did, because he was sweating after the ride!

This is a BLAST ! I did not know what to expect but it exceeded all expectations. The pre-race instructions are very clear, and make for a safe yet exciting stint when you hit the track. I went with 2 others and we all had an outstanding time. The track is a tad short, but the cars ARE FAST and provide plenty of thrills.

Could not have been happier with this experience. Would gladly do it again. Highly recommended. You drive the car! No instructor in the car! Communication is via Nascar style radio headsets! All the staff was super friendly and helpful!

Took my son and his fiancé to the Racing School late this fall, and had an absolute blast. The staff were patient professional and helpful. They are clearly focused on providing the maximum amount of fun with a maximum amount of safety. Can't wait to go again. Great bang for the buck.

Great time. Friendly personnel. Even if first time driving on track you're instructor walks you through entire process. Highly recommend the experience.

Although the people were friendly and the racing was great I will never return. Purchase a video of the driving experience for $50 ,to our dismay the hard drive was blank. Called the Company and they told us they were having problems downloading ,they would send a new one. Never received video ask for a refund. Over a month and still no refund!!! Very poor customer service.

From Our Editors

Many people have driver's licenses, but very few know how to drive stock cars, race trucks, and road-course cars. These vehicles are usually the province of professional racers, except at The Racing School. Here, civilians can learn how to drive big-powered vehicles, too. Highlights of the school's high-octane race car experiences include:

  • The instructors: All current or one-time professional race car drivers
  • The gear: It's the stuff of professional racing dreams: A driving suit and helmet
  • The cars: They all have horsepower of 500+, and they've all been professionally raced before.
  • The speed: Instructors encourage visitors to drive at real race speeds.
  • The experience: Though it varies by package, newbies typically take the wheel themselves, zooming laps around pro racetracks such as Waterford Speedbowl, Thompson Speedway and Devil's Bowl VT.
  • The safety record: It's perfect.
  • The memories: When it's over, drivers can take home photos and video footage of their time as a star driver.
