Loved it!

Awesome! Can't wait to go again! Very friendly, organized and had good instructors! The only thing is in Daytona I was in the car alone and in Vegas I had an instructor with me.

I have done the driving experience twice, once as a gift and once for a team building project. Each time all I wanted was more. 8 laps is just not enough. The staff is great, very informative and helpful to try and make your drive or ride the best it can be. Sure it's expensive, but I think it's worth... More

This has to be one of the most amazing things I've ever done. I did the 8 lap experience and wish I had booked for more. The staff is wonderful and very friendly. If you have any interest in racing at all, this is a must do. You will get a new appreciation for the level of effort it really... More

Fantastic morning out, did the 8 lap rookie experience and took them up on the discounted 3 lap ride along. Can highly recomend both, 8 laps didn't seem much when I booked it but felt longer on the track.

Chance to drive or ride along in a real race car. Thrilling and exciting. They do photos and videos for souvenirs at the end of the ride.

As a passenger, such a thrill! Definitely recommend if you like going 265kmph in a minute! Absolutely amazing! If you're not sure, definitely try it and you'll see but I was laughing the entire time. Staff were excited to have you around the track and they pick up from Harrah's Casino.
