What an excellant program at a cost lower than other racing programs across the nation. Instructos were outstanding, cars well prepared and the track was a challenge.

This turned out to be one of those "highlight of my life" experiences. I got a package for Christmas and took the drive in August. You are given a crash course on what to expect and do and a ride around the Pocono Raceway in a van with other "students". You then get fitted with a fire suit and helmet and into the car you go. They highly recommended taking the 3 lap ride along first, which I did, and they were right. You get in the passenger seat with one of the instructors and get a real feel for what the cars can do around the track. I was amazed with how they stick to the corners and would have definitely been unprepared for the actual drive. I would have never thought you could drive the cars that fast through the corners. My drive was 8 laps (20 miles) and you are in groups of three with an instructor and 2 students. The speed increases every lap withe the instructor setting the pace. It's not cheap, but I would recommend this experience to anyone.

I bought a 20-mile drive for my husband for a major anniversary and he absolutely loved it. Took him 2 hours to come down of the 'high' of driving himself alone around the track at 155 mph. Awesome! Glad the day we went was cool weatherwise. The company that conducts these rides/drives has everything sorted out and well organized. Safety is a primary concern and you feel secure the entire time. Expensive but very highly recommended for the guy who drives a stick shift.

My father and husband signed up for the ride of their life. Just two laps with an experienced driver but worth every penny. What a rush!
