Bertil Roos Racing Experience 

5 stars

 I thought the experience was absolutely thrilling. If you haven't at least looked at the website to see what it's all about I highly suggest you do and I promise you will be truly enticed and snared. Just from this one experience has me feinding for more track action. You will not be disappointed.

Bertil Roos 1/2 Day F2000 

4 stars

 A great experience. They spend a few hours teaching general racing guidelines and safety rules, then take you out to the track. Only 4/5 stars because there were some issues with a couple of the cars, and another participant and I only drove 12 out of the 20mins for the second session. Still, those 12 minutes were a blast, and its definitely an addicting sport. Nothing like driving closed wheel or on an oval.

A suggestion: break up the two groups by general skill. The handful of us who were comfortable in the cars spent a large portion of our laps sitting behind those who would only go 50-60 mph, waiting for the once-per-lap passing zone

5 stars

 A very well organized school, with very plenty of insightful instruction. They really do seem to want to give you the best opportunity to run the cars to their full capabilities. This includes providing a safe passing zone for quicker drivers to overtake, which other similar schools do not allow. One suggestion, spring for extra money and opt to do the full day course because 2 20 minute sessions is not enough time if you are really into learning race craft.

1/2 Day Racing F2000 @ Pocono Raceway 

4 stars

 I received this gift from my wife on Christmas. I must say that I didn't know what to expect. Well, it past all my ideas and then some. The instructors were friendly and helpful. the class time wasn't much use (to me) a little more track time would be more useful. A third 20 minute track time would have been great. We are planning another trip this year with some friends. GREAT JOB

Formula Racecar Driving 

5 stars

 A most enjoyable day. Well organized and well run. I have raced other vehicles before (Porsche Club) and Nascar stock cars but this was exciting. My only complaint was the vehicles themselves, which are quite crude. No leg space to work the clutch, brake and throttle and a non synchronized transmission. Other than that, it was a hoot.

1/2 Day Racing 

5 stars

 I was expecting to spend 4 hours in the classroom and 10 minutes driving. It was a pleasant surprise with exactly the right amount of classroom to road time. The instructors were friendly, knowledgeable and not pushy about their experience. I would bring a friend and do this again.

Half Day Racing School 

5 stars

 This was an excellent introduction class, and was a lot of fun. The instructors were friendly, but critical, which was great. Two 20 minute sessions go by quick, but they really do turn you loose without much classroom time, and you're free to explore your own limits. I'd consider taking more classes with this school.

Racing 1/2 Day 

4 stars

 Great time! My only constructive critic is this. After your 20 minute driving session you get feed back from field instructors. However the feedback is general overall information for the entire group. The feedback time could be better spent giving a 1 minute review of each driver. That way you know what to specifically work on when you go back on the track for your 2nd 20 minute session.

 A lot of fun, great experience driving mini formula cars. Just wish the cars weren't so 'de-tuned' and we had more time on the track rather than the classroom.

Question: I would like to buy this driving experience as a gift for my grandson's birthday. Is there an age limit?

Answer: Participants must be at least 5' tall and 15 years of age with prior racing experience or 16 years old with no experience and a valid driver's license. Participants under 18 years of age require a parent or legal guardian to sign a release waiver on the date of the reservation.

Question: Are the vehicles automatic or stick shift?

Answer: During the Formula 2000 Racing participants will be strapped into a real 150BHP Formula 2000 stick-shift racecar.

Question: If I make a reservation and the date reserved ends up being cancelled due to bad weather, do I get my credit card reimbursed or is the driver able to just reserve another day? If so, is it pretty easily rescheduled within a timely manner?

Answer: All half and full day driving programs are run rain or shine. If a program is cancelled due to the weather by the Instructor, only students present will receive a credit to take the course again within one year. If participants do not show up for and it is cancelled due to weather, no refund or credit will be give.

Question: How do you ensure the safety of the drivers who are on the track from other participants who may be driving recklessly? Have there ever been any accidents on the track?

Answer: Operating for over 40 years, the Racing School goes to great lengths to ensure the safety of everyone on the track. As a pioneer in the racing industry, Bertil Roos has been training students in the art of motor racing for over a quarter of a century. Their graduates can be found at every level of racing, from the hobbyist to the top levels of professional racing. It is also one of only five schools to be granted full licensing recommendation status for both Regional and National S.C.C.A. Competition Licenses.

Question: I would like to purchase this experience for husbands 50th birthday, can you tell me which days of the week the experiences are run and if they are conducted throughout the year or are they seasonal?

Answer: The Formula Racing Experience is offered on specific dates at specific track locations April thru October at specific locations, subject to availability. Half Day sessions typically begin at 8:00 AM and 1:00 PM.

Question: Is there a professional driver in the passenger seat during the 20 minute drive experience?

Answer: No. The Formula 2000 Race Cars are single seat vehicles. Participants will go through an intensive classroom and on-track instruction period prior to actually driving the Formula 2000 Cars.

Question: I was wondering if I book the full day formula driving experience how the time is broken down. Once you've done the classroom session, do you do the four 20 minute track sessions in a row? How much time is between each session?

Answer: Formula 2000 Racecar Driving classroom session is followed by a demonstration by professional drivers. There will be 18 people total racing split into two groups. Participants will have about 30 minutes between sessions where they will receive driving tips from the pros. Participants in the full day session will also take a break between the morning and afternoon sessions.

Question: I am looking to purchase the full day experience, however when I add it in my shopping cart, it charges 2 charges, one for the half day and one for the full day, is this a mistake?

Answer: No. The Full Day Formula 2000 Racecar Driving is a little more than double the amount of the half day program. The Full Day Program offers twice the amount of driving time as well more detailed instruction and tougher critiquing.

Question: I see that other driving experiences listed require participants to pay for insurance. Is insurance included for the Formula Driving?

Answer: There are no additional fees for insurance and participants in the Formula 2000 Racecar Driving are not liable for damage, they will however need to sign a Liability Release Form.

Question: I received this as a gift from my children for Father's Day. It has been a life long dream of mine to drive a race car. Is there anyway that this experience can be recorded?

Answer: Yes, both Professional Photographs and In-Car Videos are available for purchase on the date of the reservation.

Question: My rather large family would like to purchase this our Dad's 75 birthday. How many guests is he able to bring to the track to watch?

Answer: Participants may bring as many people as they would like to watch them during their Formula Racing Adventure!

Question: My husband is a huge racing fan. I would like to buy this as a Christmas gift for him. How fast do the cars go?

Answer: When properly driven, the cars will accelerate from 0-60MPH in 4.2 seconds, reach 130MPH in the draft, pull up to 2G's in the corners, and stop on a dime. Typically, participants will reach speeds over 100 mph. Keep in mind that the Formula Driving Experience takes place on a speed and challenge course. There are a lot of turns which require both breaking and downshifting throughout the track.
