Formula Drivetech fulfills childhood dreams of being a bona fide racecar driver by buckling grown-up gearheads into a variety of acceleratory vehicles for blistering journeys around the track. The Intro to Road Racing experience caters to those yearning for an asphalt-treading solo excursion, commencing with a firesuit and helmet fitting before ejecting revved up novices into the vehicular classroom for a 45-minute orientation. From there, lead-footed speedsters accompany their zen-like instructor on an SUV odyssey around the racetrack in order to experience the straightaways, bends, and metaphorical road forks firsthand before driving. Like the end of every teen movie, the grand finale grants each motorized student keys to the car kingdom, propelling them on a 15-minute, scorching orbit around the course in a Formula Ford with no one else in the vehicle except their grandmother's voice urging them to go faster.
