LOCATION: Wampum, PA
Spend a day behind the wheel of a fast and furious Formula 2000 racing car for the high speed driving experience of a lifetime. If you've ever dreamed of taking the checkered flag - this is your chance to make that dream come true. Stop dreaming and start driving!
From the moment you arrive at BeaveRun Motorsports Complex, you'll feel every inch the motor racing driver. You'll begin with a highly detailed classroom based instruction session where you'll learn all the theory required to handle both the car and track. Seasoned professional race car drivers will take you through proper high speed racing techniques and familiarize you with the powerful Formula 2000 racing cars. Then it's into the super fast street cars where you'll put into practice all you've learned as you power your way around the track seeking out the perfect racing line.
Finally the moment you've waited for - it's race time! In full race gear, you'll slide behind the wheel of the powerful dream machine and feel those engines roar! You'll enjoy four 20 minute races against fellow drivers in a wheel to wheel high speed duel to the checkered flag. This is an all action, high octane, thrill-a-minute experience that real racing fans will adore.
You'll be strapped into a real 150 bhp Formula 2000 racecar, capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds and reaching 130mph in the draft. These high precision cars can pull up to 2g's in the corners and stop on a dime.
The reclining seat position, open cockpit, and Indy-style body work provides you with the unique experience and a birds-eye-view of exactly what the pros see when they are battling it out, head-to-head on TV. Wide tires and front and rear wings make sure you are firmly glued to the track as you rocket around searing lap of the track.
Driving experiences are available on pre-scheduled dates throughout the year. To secure your chosen dates it is recommended that you book well in advance.
Upon arrival, you'll get dressed in the same style of racing suit worn by the pros, and fitted for the full-face helmet you will be using for the day. You will then move on and participate in classroom instruction on what it takes to control a racecar on the track when driving at the limit.
To add tangible credibility to the classroom session, and prepare you for the experience of a lifetime, we follow up with live demonstrations and practice in our street cars. The last bit of preparation involves a short introduction to the racecars, review of the safety flags, and a short discussion about racing etiquette.
Then...it's off to the races! This experience consists of four 20-minute track sessions for more than 60 laps on the track!
