OK, so I'd like to take a few minutes to say how great this experience was.
First, lets get a few things straight: This is not an opportunity to drive a $220k+ on an open track and pedal-to-the-medal. They tell you this on the site, and also when you arrive (and give you the chance to opt out if you didnt know!). This is an agility challenge on an autocross track.
I have raced autocross (albeit in the distant past) so I knew EXACTLY what to expect.
For those of you who dont know, autocross is small-track, high intensity racing. Its about precision and time, not just speed.
When you arrive you will usually be directed to tents. The day I went it was raining, so the checkin WAS in the entryway of the ladies restroom. Its not like you're standing around toilets or anything, its an entryway that could look like just a room if there wasnt a sign. Trust me, its hardly an issue.
Before you drive you get to learn about the cars and the track. You learn about throttle control, proper cornering,and what you should expect on an autocross track.
You first lap will be with your driving sherpa in control. THIS is a very good thing, you see the track, can see his line, and try to emulate it. YOUR first lap in control will be a low speed lap. Its a new car to most people, and its very easy to lose control! So you take a low speed lap, learn the turns, then its all about improvement. You push the car a little harder your second lap, and your 3rd lap you should be a nice fast turn.
My recommendation: buy the extra 3 laps for $99. My lap 6 was INTENSE. squealing tyres, proper lines, maybe 75% of what the sherpa was able to do.
And to the people that didnt want to tip... SERIOUSLY?!?! are you that cheap that you'll shell out money to drive a car that 1% of us can afford and not tip the driver? Weak and selfish really.
And just so you know: 1) the car will be in automatic, but you will almost NEVER need the second gear. It will keep you from over-revving the engine and you can focus on the cornering. 2) if you go on a day when it is raining DO NOT CANCEL! Its even more fun to try this course when wet. Anyone can drive a supercar on dry pavement.
This was everthing I expected and more. Yes, its only about an hour start to finish, but its one wild ride for an hour! A+ experience!
