    Had a GREAT time! The staff was very professional and helpful. All the equipment was in great shape and the car ran really well. Got bit by the racing bug, and will being going back for more.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hello Elio,  We have the racing bug too! Especially when it comes to Formula 2000 Racing. So happy to hear that you had a great time, hopefully we'll see you back soon!
    What an amazing experience!! The members of the staff were extremely good, very helpful and super friendly. I highly recommend it. I'm probably going to do the 3-day school at some point.
    I participated in a half-day session at the Formula 2000 Racing program at Pocono Raceway, and I had a blast. The cars are quick enough but not too powerful to get you into trouble. The grip is good but I did end up spinning twice on a camber to off-camber turn transition. The banked oval back "straight" allowed us to really open up the cars in 4th gear. Transmissions aren't that difficult to get used to, as long as you've been driving manual trans for a while and heel-toeing. Staff/Instructors were very friendly and knowledgeable and really let everyone go as fast as their comfort level. I've had experience in open-cockpit, open-wheeled vehicles before (not go karts) and have been following many racing series for a while now. So my learning curve was probably quicker than most. My only gripe was the large amount of people that drove rather slow. In both 20 minute sessions, I maybe got in 3 clean laps each heat. But the half-day course really is a beginner's course, so I can't complain that much. Those working the track tried as much as they could to get the faster drivers out in front to have clean laps. Overall, I had a great time and experience. Cloud 9 Living was pretty seamless in their booking process and getting me all the required information quickly and clearly. Would definitely use them again in the future.
    Awesome track day, instructors were clear and helpful
    Cloud 9 Living and the racing school have provided me with one of the best experiences of my entire life. I look forward to enjoying another track day experience with you again as soon as possible.
    I had a great time in the F2000 cars. The organization putting this program together is the Top Gun for this activity. I had a great day.
    It was a tremendous experience. I loved driving the Indy car and was impressed with the professionalism and sincerity of the driving school.
    Our two 20-minute track sessions were a blast! The car is quite fast and it corners flat as a pancake -- I called it a go-kart on steroids. The instructors and all the employees were super-nice and knowledgeable. However, if I had one criticism, it would be that there should be less time spent on instruction and more time spent on the track. Sure, I realize they want us to be safe and they want us to be able to go around the track as quickly as possible. But let's be realistic... nobody in this class is going to be a professional race car driver. We're taking this class to have fun and to gain some knowledge about how to drive fast safely. Those goals could have been accomplished with a lot less time spent in the classroom. Still, it was a great experience that I'd highly recommend to anyone - man or woman - who gets a thrill from driving fast.
    Overall, my experience was spectacular. The feeling of driving the Formula vehicle was incredible. Instructors were very helpful in learning the ropes of race driving. The track was really fun and the experience is something I will potentially return to in the near future. My only issue would be the cost. $550 for about 40 minutes of real driving time is a bit steep. I fully understand that the machines are not cheap and maintenance is costly. But I have purchased similar adventure packages, such as Tandem Skydiving and Introductory Flight Lessons and both were below the $300 mark. (Skydiving even came with an edited video and still photography.) I would LOVE to return for more road time but at $550 for instruction/drive time (and $100 for video/photography), it proves to be the ONLY thing preventing me from booking more days. Overall I'm very pleased with my experience.
    Great experience! Would recommend to friends and family.
    The 1/2 Formula 2000 experience at Bertil Roos Racing was so much fun!! Everything was super-organized, staff was friendly and accommodating. Every aspect of the day ran as planned, smoothly and safely. We would definitely book with them again and recommend Bertil Roos Racing to anyone.
    Great staff! Extremely friendly and most of all patient. Thanks for a great day!
    My son gave me this as a father's day gift. He went with me. I've always wanted to do this and really had a blast. Two complaints, one minor. In the information the school sent it said that guests might be able to go around the track with an instructor. But when I got there and asked they said there probably wouldn't have been time. The students went around in a sedan with an instructor and two of the cars had room for one more person, wish I'd asked if he could have done that? I found the cars hard to downshift. I've been driving stick shifts for 53 years and have had a couple of cars with non synchronized first gears. I couldn't downshift correctly in the time allowed, so I just went around in 3rd gear. I think they should have allowed us maybe one practice lap to learn the shifting. Other than that it was great. I've been following racing for 60 plus years and it's a lot harder than it looks. I've recommended it to a neighbor.
    I had awesome time on the race track.I just wish that preparation school was much shorten than it was.I spent more then 3 hours on listening instructions and only 40 minutes on race track.overall i'm very happy with my expierence and I will recomand that to my friends.
    Could not have enjoyed the experience more. The instructors were unbelievably helpful and friendly - they must do this every day yet they made all us feel like we were their first. Incredible enthusiasm and excitement from them made the day feel very special. The cars were well prepared and equiped and it was simply a blast! It was way better than I had dared to hope. I am tempted to go back and do it again, it was that good. The people just made the day for us - and that is very rare thing today. Thanks to everyone involved.
    It was really fun. Not just driving around the track but really the feel of racing. The instructors were very knowledgeable and provided great tips and feedback to help you improve. Two sessions provided ample time in the race car.
    To whom it may concern...loved the ordeal but the fact that personell at the track found excuses to slow me down and black flag me 4 times seren't really appreciated...I grew up in italy where we breathe racing....I at 46 race tag karts in englishtown and in many other tracks.....my children are also quite experienced...if it wasn't of my passion in racing my 3 buddies that we're with me would have not gotten together....On very 1st lap they black flag me because they said I am not a formula1 driver(very inproper to say) on 3rd lap they said on second lap because I came back out of pit and came to racing line which wasn't true...on 5th lap they said I was riding and burning their clutch and on 7th lap again they said I came out of pit and onto racing line....I don't think I got 6 laps on 1st session..every time I come up to traffic these guys pull me in...loved thecars experience in your cars but did not really enjoy enlugh time in them.....your instructors very informative but my experience inside the cars too short. (2 sessions out 15laps for 580)
    Only one word to say phenomenal
    Cloud 9 is a class act! I have recommended it to others and they have used it.
    The Bertil Roos instructor staff at Pocono Raceway was extremely understanding of my amateur status and went out of their way to keep me comfortable with the whole experience.
    It was an awesome experience, even with all the fog and rain. I cannot wait to go back or try some other experiences from the website. The best gift ever! Thanks baby!!!! I love you!
    A great half day of instruction and driving. Well organized. Friendly people. Nice venue, including surrounding area.
    This was the best time of my life by far. I will do this again.
    I received a Cloud9 gift certificate from my wife for a half-day Formula 2000 track experience with the Bertil Roos Racing School in PA. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from a half day, but it turned out to be an outstanding experience, both from the instruction and prep time prior to driving and then the driving experience itself. The instructors were experienced and knowledgeable and the instruction material, delivered well in advance of race day, was well-written and informative. Driving itself was an outstanding experience and, coupled with feedback from the Bertil Roos staff, made the experience a memorable one and one which I intend to repeat to put into practice what I learned this first time round.
    fantastic!
