Find out if you have what it takes to take on Lime Rock Park behind the wheel of a lightning fast formula car.
Connecticut Formula racing fans will be in seventh heaven with this full day experience that’s designed to immerse you in the world of the formula racing driver. You’ll drive not one but two lightning fast race cars as you discover just how it feels to hurtle around the track just inches from the ground.
Starting with an intensive classroom training session, you’ll follow the same course curriculum used to train legendary drivers such as Jeff Gordon and Michael Andretti as you learn the tricks of the trade from professional racing drivers. Learn the vital skills to get the most from your vehicle before putting them to the test in a series of intense training exercises on a dedicated autocross track, focusing on car control and downshift techniques.
Next up, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for as you roar off the starting grid on Lime Rock Park ready to experience the phenomenal handling and acceleration of a real formula racing car. You’ll enjoy 60 minute sessions - that’s a serious amount of seat time - and guaranteed to leave you feeling every inch the pro formula driver as you take the checkered flag!
