    Everyone dreams of getting behind the wheel of a Ferrari at some point in their lives. This is your chance to not only drive a Ferrari but to race one!

    Your day at the track will start with a technical briefing where your professional instructor will go over racing tips, proper driving position, steering techniques, braking and acceleration with powerful vehicles like the Ferrari. You will also learn how to find the optimum racing lines on the course.

    Next, you'll be taken on 2 discovery laps riding as a passenger in a Porsche Cayenne with a racing instructor at the wheel showing you how to optimize your laps on the track.

    Then you'll get behind the wheel of your Ferrari and unleash on the Auto Club Speedway Exotics Road Course.

    Auto Club Speedway Exotics Road Course: The Exotics Road Course is located at the Auto Club Speedway, a track where on any given weekend you may find many of the world's fastest drivers. This 1.2-mile course is fast, fun, and exciting! With 8 turns and a 1,600-foot high-speed straightaway, this is the perfect track to experience the acceleration and maximum G forces of a Ferrari.

    Ferrari F430 F1: Push the limits of a 490 horsepower V8 Ferrari F430 F1 that goes 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds.

    Ferrari 458 Italia: Race Ferrari's newest and hottest sports car, the 570 horsepower 458 Italia is powered by a high revving 4.5L V8 and can go 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds.

    Ferrari 488 GTB: The successor to the 458 Italia, the 488 GTB is now the fastest car on the track. With 670 HP it can reach speeds up to 205 mph and can go from 0-60 in just 3 seconds flat. With all that power and it's 3.9L V8 twin-turbocharged engine, it's an absolute blast to drive!

    Ferrari / Lamborghini Combo packages: For those of you who want it all, select one of our Ferrari & Lamborghini combo packages and drive both the Ferrari F430 F1 and the Lamborghini Gallardo LP550.

    What a great birthday present! The driving experience was amazing. The cars are incredible. The wait time was longer than expected. (We waited about 2 1/2 hours after the training class to actually drive.) In general, a really fun experience!
    The driving experience brought me back to the glory days and my Boss 302! The need for speed.
    great time although it was a bit crowded and everything was a bit late
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Hi Steven, Thank you for taking the time to write in. Overall, I am glad to hear that you had a great time racing the Ferrari! Had you ever done something like this before? I'm so sorry to read that the day was running a bit behind. I hope it did not delay any plans that you may have made for the remainder of your day. Sometimes, the day can be a bit delayed due to mechanical issues or to cool off the cars, which is the nature of the industry. Again, I am sorry that the delay did happen on your watch. Let us know when you and Patrick are ready for your next adventure! Cheers, Val
    Great instructor... helped me really learn how to handle the car and race track experience. His input made all the difference in having just a fun ride and having an adrenaline-pumping experience.
    It was unbelievable.
    The experience for me was exciting and a thrill for sure. We live in Ocean Shores, WA and on the drive to Fontana I was thinking about the experience with anticipation. This was my first time ever to do this, and I will be 80 on my next birthday. My husband got the 10 laps for me for a birthday present. When I do it again, I will go 140MPH. There is a bit of a learning curve the first time you do it. And it makes you want to do it again, and then you won't be afraid or unknowing of what will happen. I truly enjoyed this event and everyone was helpful and friendly.
    Great time. My instructor, Eric, helped make it awesome. Quite a thrill.
    From the time we arrived until we left, everyone was friendly and helpful.
    Everyone was very friendly and the driving experience was awesome.
    Had a blast, everyone I met was really friendly and helpful.
    The whole experience was very relaxing, surreal and the driving experience was amazing.
    Had a great time cars were awesome
    It was so much fun!!! The experience was amazing!
