participants Price for 1 Participant

Get out of the stands and on to the track with the BIR Performance Driving School and learn to drive a racecar at Minnesota's historic Brainerd International Raceway. Put the pedal to the metal and take the ride of your life as the engine roars and you reach top speeds during a twenty-five minute session of on-track racing.

The fun of this Racing Experience Gift begins when you arrive at the track. Once checked-in you will start with a classroom orientation, followed by instruction on how to drive a car on the racetrack. After the classroom portion of the lesson is complete, you will take a driving tour of the track with your Instructor. Following the driver’s orientation, you will put on your driving suit, helmet and gloves and hit the track! Next, it’s time to get into the Spec Ford Racecar, you will be buckled into the race car and start your engine!

Throughout the driving experience, you will be racing behind the pace car to the finish line. This unique Ford Spec Driving Adventure is your chance to be a racecar driver for a day and makes the perfect gift for every racing fan!

Question: I'd like to give my buddy the racing experience in Brainerd for his birthday but I'm not sure if he knows how to drive stick. Are any of the Spec Cars automatic?

Answer: No, Spec Cars are all 5 speed manual transmission and designed not to be modified. This may be the motivation he needs to learn! However, if your friend doesn't want to learn to drive a manual transmission he can always race his own car at the Brainerd International Raceway by purchasing him the "Race Your Own Car At BIR Raceway" experience.

Question: I'm interested in the BIR Spec Car racing in Minnesota. If I choose to do more than one 25 minute session are they all on the same day? What if I want to go more than one day.

Answer: All of the sessions will be on the same day. You begin with safety and orientation class in the morning followed by on track instruction and then your sessions will start. You may have up to 2.5 hours of driving if you choose the option for 6 session! If you'd like to go on more than one day you must purchase a separate certificate for the other days. Please remember that the safety and orientation and track instruction for each day that you participate is mandatory.

Question: Your website says this performance racecar driving lesson is in a Ford Spec Car. What exactly is a Ford Spec Car?

Answer: Spec Cars, or Spec Racers, are a concept designed in the early 80's by Sports Car Club of America. They are a high performance, closed wheel, open cockpit vehicle designed for racetracks. The "Spec" comes from the fact that all have exact same specifications. They are actually designed with tamper-proof seals that don't allow them to be modified without detection so every racer starts with an equal race car.

Question: How fast can I go at BIR?

Answer: That's up to you. The Spec Cars can reach speeds up to 135mph.

Question: Do we get to run at BIR by ourselves or will there be other participants on the track with me?

Answer: There will be approximately 10 to 15 people on the track with you.

Question: My friend is visiting from Australia and has a valid Australian driver's license and drives in the US. Can he participate in the BIR Performance Driving Experience?

Answer: Unfortunately only valid US driver's licenses are accepted.
