  • $49 for a three-lap high-speed ride-along experience (a $99 value).
  • $199 for a 10-minute Taste of Racing Formula Car experience (a $399 value). Drivers must be able to drive a manual transmission and may opt to add damage protection that caps financial liability at $1,000 for an extra fee ($60).

Formula Racing Experience engages adrenaline glands with real-life rubber-burning packages, sending speed demons around Autobahn Country Club's paved road course. With the high-speed ride along, need for speeders can hop aboard a race-prepared streetcar and share three laps' worth of in-the-action views with a professional driver. The Taste of Racing Formula Car experience allows participants to don a fire suit and helmet and tear around the track's turns, just as a professional racer or ambitious after-hours janitor would. After 45 minutes of classroom instruction familiarizes soon-to-be drivers with the course’s corners, students get to take the wheel for 10 invigorating minutes, leaving their hair mussed, their eyes bulged, and their torsos coated in corporate sponsorships.

Gave this to my son as a Christmas gift, looked interesting so I got one for myself. If you love racing and want to drive fast this is the thing to do. Everyone @ New Hampshire Speedway was great. I will definitely do this again.
