I have car insurance. Am I covered for the Xperience?
No, the mandatory insurance we require is specific to driving on a race track at our event.
Do I need to make a reservation or can I choose my car the day of the event?
You will need to make a reservation via our website for the day, car, and time you prefer. Certain cars book faster than others, all are subject to availability.
The car I want to drive is booked, but I purchased a voucher, can you squeeze me in?
Unfortunately, no. All purchases through Xtreme Xperience and deal sites advertise four cars that are subject to availability and require reservation. Please check cars and schedules before making your purchase.
What time should I arrive at the track?
You must arrive 40 minutes prior to your drive time. We ask that you arrive early in order to get checked in and attend your instructional course which will take place 30 minutes before your scheduled drive time. If you miss your instructional course, you will have to wait until the next class an hour later. The drive time you scheduled means you will drive within that hour, not precisely at the booking time.
About the Event & Cars
How long is the orientation, and what does it consist of?
Orientation is approx 20-25 minutes long. Think: Real Supercars. Real Racetracks. Real Instruction. During orientation you will receive information from a professional instructor about the racetrack, racing fundamentals, the vehicles you will drive or ride, and safety.
How many laps will I drive?
Each Driving Xperience consists of three laps. You can sign up for multiple drive to experience multiple cars and/or more laps.
Are all the vehicles manual or automatic?
All Xtreme Xperience vehicles are equipped with automatic transmissions which may be driven in a semi-automatic paddle shift mode.
What do I need to bring with me to the event?
Drivers must bring a valid driver’s license and wear closed-toed shoes. If you purchased a deal voucher please print a copy and bring it with you to registration.
What are the video and photograph options?
Professional photo and video packages will be available for cash or credit at the event. For video, you can purchase an SD card to record your in-car “Xperience” on an HD Go- Pro Hero camera.
Can spectators attend?
Yes, spectators are more than welcome to come. Your friends and family members can watch and enjoy the “Xperience” with you, from a safe, designated viewing area.
How fast will I go?
The speed you will reach depends on the track and the driver’s ability. In a straight line, on an open runway, these cars will all go 200 mph. They also all go 0-60 mph in around 4 seconds (passenger cars will do that in around 10 seconds). At our race tracks, we have relatively long straightaways which should get you going around 100 mph at full speed before needing to brake into a turn. Our Xperience is about really experiencing the the cars on a road course-style racetrack, which includes the straight line speed as well as cornering at speeds MUCH higher that anyone would ever experience on the street (40-80 mph through turns).
