We watched other people do this experience while we were on the 90 minute tour, kids as young as about 8 years old really enjoyed every one of the 8 laps they did at speeds of well over 100mph!! I would have had a go if I had known I could have booked it online too!

Daytona International Speedway was a cool tour with cool tour guides. Meet new people, see new things, learn new things.

Any car fan can appreciate and enjoy a day at the track with this Richard Petty Driving Experience. You need not be a trained driver to get the thrill of the racetrack at Daytona International. This is a great experience!

This was an anniversary present for my husband for our 1st anniversary. That was 9 years ago and he still talks about it! He had a blast.

What a pure adrenaline rush this was! I never took my foot off the gas and my middle 4 laps were 145mph each. If rain hadn't of been threatening I'd have laid down another $$$$ for and extra 6 laps

Excellent experience. We went for the 3 lap ride along option where the professional driver drove round at about 170mph. Great to drive right up next to the top crash barrier. Staff looked after you and the most worrying thing for people seemed to be how to climb into the seat. Quite expensive, particularly if you are doing one of... More

Wow! I ride motorcycles and can ride fast but the experience in one of these cars is totally awesome! You don't really understand the speed until you're shoehorned and tightly harnessed into one and travelling at speed (relatively slow for these guys) around the banked curves feeling the G-forces and hoping that the tyres don't let go of the grip...

This was a gift for my husband and it was not disappointing at all. We loved watching the entire thing from getting him suited up and climbing through the window to speeding around the track. I know it's something none of us will forget - and he did it a year after open heart surgery!
