    It is recommended, but not required. You will have to shift from low to high gear.
    How will the program be structured?
    Following a one-hour pre-drive orientation/training session with the driving school's Crew Chief and professional instructors, you'll drive a real Indy-style race car on a Super Speedway for a timed session. Total drive-time will depend on the lap-length program purchased. For this experience, there is no lead car utilized and and no instructor in the car with you!

    Yes. If you come up on a slower race car, track personnel will assist you around the slower portion(s) of the group, using techniques and instructions covered in your pre-drive orientation session.
    Can I choose my own racecar?
    No. Unfortunately, the driving school cannot guarantee which exact cars will be at the track on a given date, nor can they promise the specific car a participant will be assigned to for his/her drive. Each participant is assigned to a car with careful consideration, based on individual height and weight.
    What is the policy on rain-outs?
    If your experience is canceled due to inclement weather, the driving school will contact you and either immediately reschedule you for another available date, or issue you a gift card that you can use to later reschedule at your convenience. A refund will not be issued due to rain-outs.

    Hi Herm,  What a gift! Happy to hear you appreciated the Andretti Team as much as we do!  Cheers!
    “I bought this Indy car experience for my husband for our 20th anniversary. He used to race cars with the SCCA, so I thought this would be fun for him. He loved it! He would have liked to go even faster, but that's typical for him.... he likes speed! All the people with the racing team were great, very nice, super friendly. The above is what he said the whole way home, too -- he loved it!”
    “Driving at 177 miles an hour around a super-speedway - the whole thing was surreal and phenomenal. This was a once in a lifetime experience and it was as good as I could have possibly dreamed. Many, many thanks to my family for this unbelievable gift! ”

    “Actually did the king experience, but it was cut short due to inclement weather. Can't wait for another time to reschedule”
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Chris,  Sorry to hear that mother-nature didn't cooperate this time! Can't wait to hear about your next drive!   
    “The guys were great!! They made the experience even more fun. Communication while driving was great also. I would recommend this experience to anyone. Awesome! Picture and video pick up took way too long, use credit cards. Did not get my 3 lap ride with a driver. Should have been scheduled before driving the Indy Race Car Experience.”
