it was as advertised a three hour event, but will end up to be only 5 minutes on track. Plus had to add another $54 after the discount which wiped out the special discount. Now find out the event won't occur for 4 more months. I won't fall for this again. Plus now I am inundated by Groupon "deals". Im unsubscribing

I would give 4.5 stars for the experience but I took off a star for groupon because there was nothing in the fine print that stated I would be charged extra for the "driving" fee when I scheduled. I ended up paying $44 more dollars when I scheduled so I did not ultimately save any money by using Groupon on this. The experience was great for my husband with two caveats. Five minutes track time only equaled about 4 laps. He felt that by the time he actually got the hang of it, it was time to stop and would have enjoyed 5 laps instead of 5 minutes. It would be nice if you could purchase that way. The experience was awesome nonetheless and he was stoked afterwards. He said the cars drove like a dream and he wished he had opened it up a little more. He only got to 130 top speed because his radio crackled a bit making hearing the spotter difficult at times. He would definitely do this again though if he found a good deal on it. The process at Charlotte Motor Speedway went very smoothly and the staff was awesome!

They finally offered a voucher after 2.5 hours of waiting. The class finished and the cards weren't working. They weren't giving timelines and initially weren't giving vouchers but finally, they gave a voucher

Don't be expecting to drive to cars limits , they have defined to not cross 5000...and pedal is bent. But for those who think 150 is fast enough its once in life time.

Mario Andretti Racing Experience

Mario Andretti Racing Experience’s team of driving instructors specializes in racing-themed Cinderella stories: at whichever world-famous speedway they’re visiting, they give civilians the chance to act like a world-champion driver for a few hours. That means sitting in the roll cage of an Indy-style racecar, similar to those Mario drove, and putting the pedal to the medal. Unlike other racing experiences, there’s no lead car to follow here and no cows crossing the road. In other words, no speed limit. The instructors still offer guidance though, coaching those riding solo over a two-way car radio, and speed-chauffeuring racing enthusiasts around the track on ride-alongs.
