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

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.

My wife and I had a great time on the track. Did not know that the cars are manual gear stick shifts.

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

One of the best moments of my life!!! Didn't want it to end! The instructors were very patient and just as excited as most of the students! Would definitely do it again!!

The team was exceptional. The one on one experience was amazing. Everyone was truely a professional. Chalk one up for my bucket list. Definately worth doing again....and again...and again.... if you could afford it.

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.
- Dr Barry Wills - Rydal, PA, Wednesday, September 02, 2009
It was very informative as well as exciting. I would highly recomend doing it at least once.
- Steven Lackey - Pocono, Friday, July 03, 2009
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.

This was by far the best one I have done. Very professional and hands on. Highly recommended!!
- Peter Delacy - Pocono PA, Monday, September 15, 2008
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.
- Chuck Lembo - Pocono Raceway, Wednesday, September 03, 2008
The instructors were terrific and the experience was all I thought it would be and more. Everyone was very helpful. pleasant and very safety conscious.
- Daniel Tarantino - Poconos, Tuesday, August 26, 2008
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.
- Spencer Gordon - Poconos Raceway, Tuesday, July 08, 2008
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.
- Richard Nardone - Englewood, NJ, Monday, July 07, 2008
It was a blast. I went thinking I was a good driver, and found that there was a lot to learn. The cars, instruction, and the track were excellent. I heartily recommend the experience.

Question: Are the vehicles automatic or stick shift?
Answer: Thank you for contacting Xperience Days. During the Formula 2000 Racing Half Day Xperience, you'll be strapped into a real 150 bhp Formula 2000 stick shift racecar. 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.
