Amazing! Bought for my fiance and he absolutely loved it! Everyone was super nice and professional. It was fun and the day was really organized too. I def recommend buying the extra laps. I did and was thankful because some other people didn't and regretted it. I defrecommend this to anyone who likes to drive!
For the money its a little pricey for 10 laps, takes a good 3 or 4 to get used to the car, you lose the ability to push if you are good with the other inexperianced drivers on the course, they should at least do 15 laps, they actually did pull slower drive off the track but it was after 5 laps, they should have everyone do a test lap before they put everyone out there together to get a sense of good vs bad drivers. Just a thought. Overall it was fun.
This was an amazing experience! Can't wait to go again!!!
This was an amazing experience to do 10 laps in real stock car. Recommended for auto enthusiast!
I loved it! Everyone was great, class before driving was very informative. Had a lot of fun would recommend this to others, may even do it again myself. I had a blast!
My family and I had a great day at the track. However the waiting was to long. Very disorganized. They said to be there at 11:00. I did not drive until 2:00 pm. My car was very slow compared to other ones #5. The host was wonderful the people were so friendly. It will be a memorable moment in my life.The day could use some improvements.
From begining to end, this was a pleasure. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The cars were 'the real thing'. They race the cars that you drive. Some of them were actual cup cars. Make sure to buy extra laps if you're really interested in driving. The time goes by much too quickly and it takes a few laps to get the feel of it. This is a great gift to give yourself or anyone who thinks they want drive a race car.
The entire process was handled very professionally. The pre-ride information was very detailed, the class was informal but extremely detailed and having the track in front of us helped me clarify the written materials provided. The entire team is very experienced and the radio communication during the driving was very helpful in making the entire day fun and safe.
A gift from my kids, what a great time. It was a super day, I talked my wife into the ride along with a pro, she loved it and wants to drive next time. The staff was great everybody puts a lot of work into making it a special day. My instructor Tom made me feel at ease and safe with the car. It was so worth it. Glad we did it! Thanks to everybody who made this happen for me. Get out there and do it, you wont regret it.
Had a great time, I've worked on race cars for a lot of years but never had a opportunity to drive one. This experience completed my racing career. Thank you!
They were great. This is about the only place that actually lets you 'race' their cars, going as fast as you can and passing. The people are helpful, friendly and interested in you having a good time. Highly recommended.
I purchased this gift as a birthday present for my husband and was completely satisfied! There was a bit of a mixup with our time which was our fault but the staff was extremely professional and were able to accommodate us after. We traveled from long island ny and would return and recommend this xperience to anyone!!! My husband came out with a cheese smile and thas what counted!!!
The whole experience was exceptional! Far exceeded my husband's expectations! Over all A GREAT DAY @ the races!! We will be back!!!
Do it! If you even are considering getting this for your partner, do it. It was my first time driving a race car and it was so much fun. I recommend doing the drive along with a pro before doing it yourself. It was an eye opener to learn what the car could really do. You then take either the same car or a similar car out on the track and have a point of comparison. The drive along was very fun in itself so get that for yourself as well. I would definitely do this again!
Fantastic experience! It surpassed all my expectations, the Staff at Thompson Speedway were great too. Will definitely do it again.
This is as real as it gets. A lot of fun and they really let you open up the throttle unlike most places. AND they encourage passing and racing at your own speed. Great place to race!
If you love driving you will definitely enjoy this experience! I had high expectations and it surpassed even that. A much different experience from street driving one every enthusiast should try at least once. I will be back for more!
Awesome experience, definitely will do it again.
Every one was just great, the only thing should of did 20 laps.
Great driving experience. All was AWESOME!
So Good!! Thrill for a life time!!
This was the best gift ever! Shake & Bake Rickey Bobby!!!
Absolutley fantastic. I bought this experience as a gift for my husband and he loved it. Kelly and his crew were great and made the whole experience very memorable. We will definitely be returning with our son next time. The only poblem we encountered was the heat. It was very hot in October and would recommend driving in the cooler months.
It was great. I was not worried or nervous about a thing. The fact that I had an instructor in the car realy took the edge off. The experience was a gift but when I found out what it cost I thought it very afordable. I have seen other racing experieces that cost a lot more but in these times I like the numbers and the experience at your site. I have refered your site to all my friends and co-workers. Thank You
I really enjoyed myself! My instructor was doing his best to show me how to take the turns and overall just how to be the fastest car on the track. I passed 3 cars! 10 laps seemed like no time at all, I would highly recommend doing at least 20 laps. Everyone was very helpful and it was a very fun experience!
Cars are great. Kelly (the Owner of racing exp) was great, telling us that he wanted us to race hard and pass in the drivers meeting, but Tom, my ride along driver kept putting his hand on the steering wheel and pulling on my leg to slow down. This was my first time in a stock car, so maybe he was doing his job to keep it safe, but it took away from the experience. Kelly (the owner of racing exp) and the drivers in his car were always the fasted car out there leading me to believe that he let his drivers drive and he pushed them. I talked to a driver that had Kelly in his car and he confirmed this. Also if over 6'tall the cars will be a tight fit. I'm 6'5' and was in their tall car and it was to tight to drive comfortably. Helmet radios and being told what to do would be better than having the exp driver grabbing the wheel unless it was a true emergency. Overall it is worth trying it at least once and if you get Kelly as your exp ride along driver it would be worth going back several times.
This experience was exactly what it claimed to be. No holding back, go as fast as you can without going into the wall!! I learned alot and had a blast. I'm definitley going to do it again and more laps next time around, i was just getting warmed up.... The cars were in great shape no issues - this is the real deal.
Thanks for putting this together and the instructors weren't too shabby either!!
The experience was awesome! I would definitely do it again. It was one of the best birthday presents i have had!
