Q:

I just purchased a ride on November 16/17, for my 7 year old son. Since you will be doing the driving do I still need the insurance and 7500 credit card? Also how do I pick a time and how do I reserve the Lamborghini?

Brenda W.  asked on  Jun 26, 2013

A:

No need for insurance and for credit card! Follow instructions on voucher or go to: www.motorsportlab.genbook.com and find your spot!

Q:

I was reading reviews and I'm thinking of purchasing the groupon, but I saw someone mention if you get the 6 lap course, that comes with the insurance. Is that true? And what if you don't have a credit card with that high of a limit since debit isn't allowed? How much is the insurance if it is not included?

julie k.  asked on  Jun 24, 2013

A:

This is not true. Insurance is optional as always. We recommend using someone else's credit card. In some instances, we would have the person purchase all the insurance options, if they don't have a credit card. That way, there's some coverage. Please contact hello@motorsportlab.com for any questions.

I have a 7 year old son who is crazy about cars. Obviously we can't go for a ride, but are there any oppourtunities to get a good look at the cars?

Actually you can! We have people purchase Groupons all the time and we take their young kids out all the time!

Patrick C.  asked on  Jun 25, 2013

A:

It doesn't matter...it can be "gifted" even if it's in your name. Thanks!

Q:

Are you going to add more dates, since according to the calendar on the website... ALL November and December dates for this deal are no longer available?? I want to purchase this deal for my husband's 40th birthday, but I also want to know what is the maximum speed that he would even be able to go in the Lamborghini? It sounds that he'll be maneuvering through cones... Will there be any opportunity to have fun with straight speed and cornering? If so, about how much of the course involves any speed and fun handling around corners? And again, what would be the max speed he'd even get to in the Lamborghini? If I purchase the 6 lap course, how long will he be actually driving? Further, I know he'd want to drive the Lambo, so is there a guarantee that I could reserve that car for him? Lastly, there is no option to speak to a live person or even leave a message at the contact listed: (508) 954-8048. Apparently, the mailbox is full. Please advise, as this deal is almost up! Thank you.

Hi. Groupon has the wrong number -- it's 617-383-7655. Try that or eMail us at hello@motorsportlab.com. This isn't a speed experience, it's more agility with teaching how to corner and come out with speed. Our experiences come with 20-30 minutes of training and for 6 laps -- I would estimate about 10 minutes depending how fast he's going. As for guaranteeing the Lambo, we can't guarantee it-- I know there's lots of availability right now, so book soon. As for why you don't see it -- are you selecting the Florida Location?

Q:

I'm buying this for my son who is 6'7" and approximately 300-350 lbs., will he be able to do this? I purchased the 6 lap experience. Can my son and grandson who is 20 split the time? From what I'm reading, the track is in St. Pete., correct?

Sharon K.  asked on  Jun 24, 2013

A:

He's going to be too tall -- sorry. You can't split the time -- it's 1 per person. Yes, it's in St Pete.

Q:

I want to get the 3 lap gift for my 21 year old son. When you say it is on an "agility course " does that mean you basically drive in and out of pylons in a parking lot doing 20 to 40 mph or does the driver get an opportunity to get the car up to 80/90 mph on some type of road course?

gary g.  asked on  Jun 22, 2013

A:

Yes, it's an autocross course based on pylon cones that we create on a driving pad. This isn't a speed experience where the goal is to go fast all the time. Rather, it's more focused on turning/cornering and learning the fundamentals of racing with some straightaways to get speed coming our of turns. If you and your son are looking to simply "gun it" and go "pedal-to-the-medal", this isn't that type of experience. Hope that helps!

Q:

Hello! I have been waiting for this Groupon to come out - thank you!! My son is 15 on is a Ferrari NUT - can I purchase this for him and he gets to drive with a driver? Or can I purchase it for both my son and husband and they ride together in the same car? Not sure on the second question since it's a two seater, and I am pretty sure your driver goes in the car with them, just wanted to be sure!

nicole s.  asked on  Jun 21, 2013

A:

Thanks! Glad to hear it! Yes, correct -- all students are accompanied by our instructors. Yes, your son can ride with an instructor, but cannot ride with your husband.
