    Your unforgettable day at the track will start with an approximately 20-30 minute classroom session where your professional instructor will go over racing tips, proper driving position, steering techniques, braking and acceleration with powerful vehicles like the Ferrari, and how to find the optimum racing lines on the course. Once complete, you'll be sent down to the pit to be fitted for your helmet and to prepare yourself for the thrill of a lifetime!

    Finally, you will take the driver's seat and have the opportunity to unleash on the course for 3 or 6, heart-pumping laps. Your instructor will be in the passenger seat the entire time, giving you real-time feedback and pointers on how to get the most out of both the course and your supercar!

    The Ferrari 458 Italia is one of the finest supercars in existence. Setting the standard for all supercars to live up to, this powerful car is capable of hitting speeds of 200+ MPH and going from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.3 seconds. It's a true masterpiece of engineering!

    Pittsburgh Intl Race Complex: The only track of its kind in the area, this is a world-class racing, training, and testing facility. The brand-new South Course is a 1.2-mile road course. You will be treated to 8 exciting turns and not one, but two 1,300 foot straightaways, giving you plenty of time to unleash your need for speed!

    Pocono Raceway: This Raceway is well known amongst the racing community hosting a variety of NASCAR and INDY Car events throughout the year. Established in 1968, Pocono has held some of NASCAR and INDY Car's first races and continues to race the Tricky Triangle to this day. This 1.37-mile course boasts 15 hairpin turns and a 1,900 foot straightaway for you to enjoy with this powerful supercar!

    It was my second driving experience.I attended one last year it was great. If it was buy one get one I would do another.
    My wife gave me a "Drive a Ferrari" experience booked through Cloud 9 Living. What a blast! Most everything went smoothly, they were very aware of spectator comfort and took care of everything. Driving the car was out of this world! The only problem was that part of the booking did not transfer from Cloud 9 Living. They found the problem and fixed it, but we still didn't get quite what she had paid for. Still a great experience!
    Overall event was extremely well organized and lots of fun.....beautiful weather helped a lot, too! Very good pre-drive session. Instructor in the car was very animated and a huge plus for the drive. Maybe I missed the ability to add extras like photos and videos during booking, but it would be nice to take care of all the paperwork in advance... if this can be done, my bad. Would definitely consider doing again.
    We purchased this experience for my college son. We had to select a time slot so we thought he'd have his own time on the track but he was very disappointed when he had to share the track and everyone. Plus only go as fast as the lead driver who was slow. Also, he is 6'4 and did not fit in the Ferrari. They had to put him in the Porsche soand we were not offered a refund for that difference however my son decided to purchase a second ride and they did allow him to be first and gave him a discount. He totally enjoyed his second ride and the instructors told him he had the fastest time if the weekend. Just be sure to explain to future customers that they are not in the track alone.
    I thought it was an awesome experience and I love the video I bought of my drive, that was priced good!
