A:

Hi Karen, Most of our cars are standard shift, however we do have a couple of semi-automatic for people who need that style car. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

The write-up in the Groupon says that the rider gets to "sit shotgun alongside Rusty". However, the website indicates that a professional instructor would be driving, but not necessarily Rusty himself. Does Groupon guarantee that it would be Rusty driving? That's kind of misleading if not.

A:

Hi Isabelle, I just reread the copy and in a few spots it mentions a pro driver, but you are right in one spot it does say with Rusty. The professional driver is correct, as Rusty could never be at all of our events. I will bring this to someone's attention and have it fixed going forward. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

Hi there, Just wondering does the 2 hour session where the person drives the car themselves, do you provide the car or are they able to bring their own car? My husband has a 2005 Ford Mustang GT that I know he would love to race, so just wondering if that is an option? Thanks!

A:

Hi Peggy, Yes for the 10 lap driving experience, he will be driving himself. For safety reasons we would never put a street car on a racetrack, additionally our cars are probably 50% faster than any street car. I hate it when our cars wreck, but they do their job and protect the driver. I'm not sure the same could be said of a street car. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

Thank you Mark, RWRE, & Groupon! Your customer service is excellent! One other question... My father is visually impaired and will need assistance climbing into the window of the vehicle. He will be able to do it, but likely unable by himself. Can we (my mother, husband, and I) assist him in getting into/out of the vehicle (or are there any restrictions preventing us from doing so)? Also, could we bring a step-stool of sorts (or is something similar provided) to assist him in getting into/out of the car window given that it is 35 inches up from the ground (my father is a senior, and although he is mobile, I cannot imagine him being able to pull his legs/body up a height of 35 inches without a support device to raise him off the ground and bring him closer to the window entrance)? Thanks again! Can't wait to purchase this Groupon!

Hi Nikki, Thanks, I think I speak for everyone at RWRE when I tell you it truly is a labor of love. How many people can be involved with helping someone fulfill a dream? It brings us a great deal of satisfaction. On to your question, we have a stool and we have a pit crew which is familiar with the car that will help him in. You can be by his side at every step for some support, from past experience we feel that having the crew help him is safest and easier for everyone due to their familiarity with the car, seat, buckles, etc. See you at the track!! Thanks, Mark @ RWRE

Q:

If I buy one as a gift for my father (the ride along option, not the option where he drives a car himself), can I go with him and enter the track for free? Or do I need to purchase the $49 pass as well? I am not interested in riding in the car, but my father is visually impaired and will need someone to stay with him from the start to the end of the experience (with the exception of the actual experience doing laps around the track).

A:

Hi Nikki, You can certainly join him, friends, family, camera and video camera are all encouraged and admission is complimentary. Thanks, Mark @ RWRE
