    Was awesome. Definitely need to do the lead car ride along if it’s your first time. Glad I did. Should be required.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    This is awesome! The lead car ride is a great way to get familiar with the track and the feel of the car, not to mention with a professional race car driver behind the wheel! Thank you for sharing about your experience. Cheers, Kasia.
    Great time. Advise taking the ride along in the lead car first to get used to the track. You will go faster if you do.
    It was a fantastic experience! The instructor was awesome, and the car was truly insane. I can't wait to do this again!
    I had a great time driving a great car. Three laps isn't much time to get used to the track, but the initial EVO ride helped some. Being able to feel and hear the effects of full throttle in the GT3 was worth the 400 mile round trip drive.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Robert, Thank you for writing in! I’m so glad to hear that you had a great time driving the Porsche 911 GT3! A lot of our professional drivers say that the Porsche is one of their favorite cars to drive. The 3 laps can go by pretty quickly, especially when you’re hitting speeds over 100 MPH. But that is really great you were able to experience the thrill ride as well. It almost feels just like a roller coaster, and it’s a great way to get a feel for the track before you drive yourself! Hopefully you didn’t take those top speeds to the road on your drive back home! Let us know when you’re ready for your next experience! Cheers, Val
    Amazing experience!!! Created memories that will last a lifetime!
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Leah, Wow, what an awesome way to spend the day! I am so thrilled to hear that you had such a great time racing the Porsche. Some of our instructors say that it is their favorite car to drive! It is so nice that you were able to spend such a great day with Thomas. I know you two will talk about it for years to come. Let us know when you are ready to get back out on the track! Cheers, Valerie
    The experience was great! The instructors and crew were very friendly and courteous. Would like to have felt the full power of the vehicle with a straightaway. Overall I really enjoyed myself. Thanks.
