Customers arrive at Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia for registration, a safety briefing, and an overview of their chosen vehicle. After riding around the track as a passenger during a lap in the pace car, visitors settle into the driver’s seat as an instructor sits in the passenger seat to give advice for one or two laps around the raceway. Laps take 5–10 minutes, and the entire experience takes over two hours.
American Racing Experience
The 483-horsepower V8 engine roars in front of you as you shift gears, and the speedometer climbs over 150 miles per hour. Gliding down the straightaway, you grip the wheel of a Ferrari F430. You don't need to buy your own exotic car to experience this adrenaline rush: American Racing Experience connects visitors with a similar emprise on four major raceways across the United States. At scheduled times at the Motorspeedway in Atlanta, Pocono Raceway in Pennsylvania, Summit Point Motorsports Park in West Virginia, and Adams Mortorsports Park in Los Angeles, they brief drivers on the handling and controls of sleek Ferraris and V10 engine-powered, six-speed Lamborghini Gallardos. After preparing visitors for the upcoming track with a lap in a pace car, instructors slip into the passenger seat—letting their guests take the wheel for a driving experience more extreme than some TV show set on an island.
