I had an absolutely amazing time. The Indy cars are seriously high performance, quick acceleration, handles incrediably. The day went smoothly, the staff made the experience fun and safety was always a concern. The driving instructor was quick to assist you on the track and bring you to the fastest speed possible. I was able to hit 160! I highly recommend the driving experience if you are serious about seeing what real race cars are all about.

Really enjoyed the experience. The facility was first class. I can't stop talking about it. Thanks

I was quite disappointed when I found out that my scheduled time was off by two hours. I got to the track at 12:30 PM for my expected 1PM check in time. After waiting until 6:30PM, I finally got into a car. The supervisor and his crew at the track were very professional.

The experience was fantastic but the wait made me want to leave! In the end I'm glad I did it ONCE but because of the wait would reconsider doing ir again. I'm no Diva but 6 hour wait, no food made it less rewarding!

Unbelievable experience. The instruction, the pit crews, and all the admin staff were superb. The whole event was well organized given the number of people driving that day. Really a 'once in a lifetime' gift. Great job to all.

IT WAS AWESOME. SO MUCH FUN AND WELL ORGANIZED. A TRULY ENJOYABLE DAY THE WHOLE WAY. THANKS FOR THE EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME.

I had and awesome time and experience driving the Indy car!
- Markus Nigg - Batavia, IL, Tuesday, August 11, 2009
Incredible experience. You don't realize how much power these cars have. You really have to trust the car, because they tell you not to lift in the corners and this is very difficult to do. I think the instructors should spend more time on the car itself and how the car will react and what to expect. Overall it was great and I would do it again.
- Jason Fettig - Chicagoland Speedway, Monday, August 03, 2009
Great experience... I recommend it highly. Not having to follow a pace car made experience better as you must set your own line. Thrilling, intense, fun !!! Only bad thing was miscommunication of start time... when arrived 10:30am as told, was informed stock cars were running and Indy Cars would be at 2:00pm.
- Stephen McLaughlin - Nashville Superspeedway, Wednesday, July 22, 2009
Very exhilirating and fun! I was expecting some more instruction and strategy, but all in all, we were given a basic tutorial on what to do. Very thrilling ride, glad I did it, and I'd suggest it to others.
- David Sackar - Joliet, IL, Wednesday, July 01, 2009
It was a great experience but should be a minimum of 10 laps. I think the instruction could be better explained on a big picture of the course with all the lines explained and the path you are supposed to take.
- Bob Nichols - Joliet IL, Tuesday, June 30, 2009
What a cool thing to do. Great gift from my wife. About the only thing on the down side was that it was really hot. But it was Texas in June. Other than that I had a great experience. The driving was outstanding. Felt like the real thing. But then why wouldn't it at 165 mph. No following a pace car. Just listen to the guy in the headset and go as fast as you dare. Do it!!!
- Mark Cowling - Texas Motor Speedway, Tuesday, June 23, 2009
The experience was awesome!!!! The 6 laps are really 4 laps they count the first lap and the lap after the checkered flag. They should tell you that so you know that upfront and don't waste those two laps.
- Jamyl - Miami, Fl, Tuesday, January 20, 2009
I received the Indy Car Experience as a birthday gift. This was the best gift I have ever received in my 60 years. It was GREAT!!! Everything clicked from the school to the driving experience. I managed to rack 150+ mph. I really think I can do better, so I plan to be a repeat customer next year.
- Larry Traughber - Las Vegas, Tuesday, November 18, 2008
Got there early for 8:00 AM appointment. Everyone extremely nice & helpful. Plenty of chairs for my family and others. Instruction & van drive of about 45 minutes. Took my 6 laps and was out of there by 10:00 AM. Great & helpful pit crew. Disappointed to only reach 123 mph because I wore my trifocals which hampered depth perception (had to look through the line between two lenses) so I couldn't 'push' my instructor for fear of getting too close. Will go back again without my glasses.
- Leonard Bernstein - Auto Club Speedway, Tuesday, October 28, 2008
Great experience! The crew was great and kept everything running smoothly. I had a lot of fun racing - wish I could have gone more laps! Definately recommend this to others! This was definately an awesome birthday gift - one I will never forget.
- Daniel Yee - Fontana Speedway, Tuesday, October 28, 2008
Great experience!! The Crew was very professional and kept everything running smoothly. I had so much fun racing - wish I could have gone more laps!! Definately recommend this to others! This was definately an awesome birthday gift - one I will never forget.
Thanks a million!!
- Kevin Rowl - Las Vegas Speedway, Tuesday, October 21, 2008
Had a blast! Wish it was a few more laps around the track due to the fact that I finally got my bearings around the 3rd or 4th lap, but otherwise awesome!
- Alan Grotnes - Atlanta, Wednesday, September 03, 2008
Getting to drive the indy car was awesome I had a great time. The wait was not bad we got there around 1:30 and were done around 4:00. I would reccommend it to all my friends!
- Thomas Doyle - Atlanta GA, Tuesday, September 02, 2008
Although it was a thrill to drive the Indy car I was disappointed about the slow top speed attained (116 mph). I was expecting to get up to the 130-150 mph range.
- Robert Wolfe - Newton, Iowa, Wednesday, August 06, 2008
What a rush! This was a fantastic opportunity and the driving was well worth the wait. My appointment was for 2pm. We did arrive early as requested, and by the time were were completely finished, it was around 4:30. For those worried about the wait, don't be. Bring some chairs & a cooler and make a day out of it. There is a whole lot to see and it is part of the thrill and build up to you being able to take your chance behind the wheel. I will definitely go back for another go-around!
- Kevin McCarron - Kentucky Speedway, Wednesday, July 02, 2008
I thank you very much!
- Angie - SPARTA KENTUCKY, Tuesday, July 01, 2008
The driving was awesome!! The waiting wasn't bad either. We actually got there late (time change)and they let me drive anyway. So, that was cool! I had a great experience and will definitely do it again some day!
- Jamie Willet - Kentucky Speedway, Tuesday, July 01, 2008
The driving was GREAT but a VERY long wait. Waited 5 hours only to be cancelled at 6:00pm for the 2:00pm ride - had to return 8:00am the next day. Should advice to bring chairs/etc for the long waiting period.
- Dave - Chicagoland Speedway, Monday, June 30, 2008
The wait made the whole day bad. They should let people know that they should bring seats for guest. Sitting out in sun sucks especially when your frustrated. The training was like 10 Minutes and off to the races. 10 Minutes of fun (3 hours of waiting, and I was one of the first to drive from my session).
- J. Elms - Chicagoland Speedway, Thursday, June 26, 2008
The experience was awesome, but the wait was brutal. I was in the 11:00 AM class and I was the last drive to go at 3:45. I also was early getting there at 10:00. That makes for a long day / wait at the track. The driving was GREAT, but the wait wasn't.
- Anthony Accolti - Addison, IL, Wednesday, June 25, 2008
The wait was terrible people were there for a 11:00am ride did not get to drive needless to say the afternoon sessions were delayed.Had to come back the next day.The experience was fun but the hours of waiting and reschedule was disappointing I suggest schedule for morning sessions.
