Fantastic experience, let the revhead out. I did the 8 laps and like other reviews it was pretty positive experience, very helpful staff with lots of experience for the rookie driver. Not overly expensive, prepare for an adrenalin rush as you do get to go pretty fast. Smells like the real thing, sounds like the real thing, and handles like... More

I signed up to drive the Ferrari F430 Scuderia with the impression that I would have a "sport car driving experience" but that could be nowhere near the truth. I understand the importance of safety and protecting people, staff, and company assets but this company is unprofessional and to be blunt, it is a pure rip off. The staff member... More

I bought my husband the package to drive the 458 Italia Ferrari for his birthday. Even though he was the driver, I was included in the admission to the training video, and I got to go right into the pit with him for pictures and to keep him company while he waited for his turn. They try to involved everyone... More

This was a last minute choice and I am glad we decided to do this. The Crew Chief, Rus, made the orientation enjoyable. After 8 laps, I had to sign on for 10 more ($200). Top speed is about 130, or 140 if you just ride along in the passenger's seat. Amazingly, the video and pictures of the experience costs... More

We got this experience for my father in law who thoroughly loved it. From the brief which isn't too long and boring to waiting for pick up. He was excited the whole time. The safety and briefing is to the highest standard which made us feel better. When he spun off and roared his way around the track we could... More

Did the 8-lap stock car package over Thanksgiving in Orlando. Great experience. I was a rookie on the track, but they walk you through each step of the way. After 20-30 minutes of basic instruction (mostly video) and tips on track layout, you head outside to the track for a couple pictures, a helmet fitting, and then you're ready to... More

My husband & I went to the Richard Petty Driving Experience in Orlando and it was just amazing! Hubby got to drive a Lamborgini; and I got to do a ride with one of their professional drivers. The folks there are very nice and accommodating (hubby is an AK amputee) and they did not rush him or tell him 'no'.... More

We had a great time here we both done the 3 lap drive around, all the staff make it a great experience, helpful, polite & informative, but 150mph just ain't fast enough haahaa. What a great experience, gave us a good insight into what a Nascar driver experiences, which was great as we went to watch the Ford 400 at... More

Took part in the drive along experience last week and it was fabulous. Something all the family would do again if they had the chance. They also cater for younger children and my grandson aged 7 took part in a junior drive along which he thoroughly enjoyed. The racetrack is right next to Magic Kingdom and they run a shuttle...
