    Very exciting. Once in a life time thrill. Would have liked more info on the actual car, it's performance, the driver, etc. It felt rushed.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hello Arthur,  This definitely sounds like it was a memorable experience! The ride along is a great opportunity to experience full speeds and is very thrilling. I am sorry to hear that the experience may have felt rushed due to this.  If you'd like to learn more or take the drivers seat, please feel free to reach out! We would love to assist you in booking that experience! Cheers,  Kasia 
    It was a wonderful experience -- from the friendliness of the guard at the gate, to the assistants at the check-in counter, to the crew helping with the gear, physical instructions, etc. The adventure is well-worth repeating and recommended. One suggestion: more posted signs from the main road to the entrance of the racing area.
    It was a blast!
    Very fun! The 3 laps are very short and go by. really quick but a great experience anyway. If it were 4 or 5 laps it would be perfect.
