Not just one car at a time on a parking lot, but a group of cars together on a real race track! It is difficult to relay in print the excitement and thrill of driving this purpose-built ribbon of asphalt. This will give you a true taste of what the Pros experience!

If you find the $595 fee to enjoy one of our 2008 Van Diemens to be too stiff for your budget, this is the next best thing! The thrill of driving a real race car on a real race track! Following an introductory briefing, you will be issued your personal racing gear and you're off to pit lane and our outstanding fleet of Reynard Formula 2000 race cars. These purpose-built single seaters are very responsive with an incredible power-to-weight ratio (125 HP for only 1,000 lbs!). Your "Warm-up" lapping session becomes the excited topic of conversation between driving sessions. Drivers then return to the track for a 15-minute lapping session at speeds set by the Instructor's Pace Car. This is our most affordable Formula Car racing course! Come live the dream!
