Beginner’s Guide to Racetracks


Thousands of adrenaline junkies and car enthusiasts turn to Xtreme each year for a chance to experience triple digits speeds behind the wheel of a supercar on a racetrack. Want to know something crazy? The majority of them have never spent a single minute on a racetrack, prior to the day of their driving experience.

We’re going to guess that even though we have successfully conducted more than 75,000 Supercar Track Xperiences, you’re still thinking “there’s no way I could do that?” Well, we are here to tell you that you can, and it’s YOUR turn. Besides that… you’re not alone. We put a Pro in the car with you and we’ll tell you how to make it around the track with speed, before you hop in the driver’s seat.

Here’s your comprehensive guide to your first track day

Before you head out to your Xtreme Xperience, we’ve pulled all of our resources together. Don’t worry, if you haven’t booked yet, we didn’t leave anything out. So, if you’re on the fence about an Xtreme Xperience, asking yourself “what’s the catch?” Then we have the perfect blog post for you to read, before you go any further.

What’s The Catch?

  • This blog post goes through every question we’ve ever been asked. Such as…
  • How fast can I go?
  • Do I get to ‘push the car’ to the limit?
  • Are the cars limited?
  • Why is there an instructor in the car?
  • and much much more…

Great! So, now you know the juice is worth the squeeze! It’s time to prove that a 500+hp Supercar and our top-notch instructors are the way to get yourself track experienced. TREAT YO’SELF!

There’s also science to back our claim that you need to be the one that gets out there and gets the job done. Stop trying to live vicariously through someone else… Your happiness depends on it! To grasp what you will be required to focus on, you should know how to prepare yourself mentally, in order to drive a supercar on the track.

Prepare yourself for your first track day

If you do choose to ease your way into a driving experience, we know just how to get you track ready. In fact, no one hits the track without going back to driving school. Despite your skill level, all participants attend a driver’s meeting (classroom session) with one of our Pros. This gives you and your ‘classmates’ an idea of what to expect while you’re out on the track, and how the program will operate. This will always be accompanied with a recommendation for one of our most powerful educational tools – Discovery Laps in our TF Works track prepped Mitsubishi Evo X.

At this point in the Xperience, you will be staring at your supercar selection. Your co-pilot will be ready to help you grab the reins in order to tame the exotic car you’ve only ever dreamt of driving. Adrenaline kicks in, and you will be relying on instincts, gestures, and verbal cues from your instructor to get around the track safely. All the while, your coach from the right seat, will be wondering if you read our Pro-tips on how to navigate the track at speed. (HINT HINT)

We certainly have a few options to help you grow out of that beginner stage, while allowing you to still experience all that our supercars have to offer. Lucky you!
