Discover the thrill of formula racing

Live your dream of being a professional formula racing driver as you put pedal to metal in two different race prepped cars on Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. This is your chance to feel the white knuckle thrill of powering round a championship track, just inches off the ground as you experience the unique acceleration and handling of these incredible open wheel, race cars.

On this unforgettable day trackside, you’ll be learning the tricks of the trade from seasoned racing pros and following the same course curriculum used to train some of motorsport’s greatest drivers including Jeff Gordon and Michael Andretti. You’ll then get the chance to put your skills to the test behind the wheel of two different formula cars including a Mazda MX-5 Cup race car.

Your day begins with a comprehensive classroom briefing from real racing professionals where you'll learn the skills you need to get the most from your vehicles. Next up, it’s time to put your knowledge to the test in a series of intense exercises on a purpose built track where you’ll practice car control skills and downshift techniques.

Finish your adventure with the moment you’ve been waiting for as you roar off the starting grid in a heartbeat and follow in the tire marks of your racing heroes. You’ll enjoy 2 timed sessions behind the wheel of two different formula racing cars and put every bit of your training to the test as you see the world through the eyes of a formula racing driver
