    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.
    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.
    My Formula 2000 Racing was amazing. The people at the racing school were very informative and helped me to get the most out of my experience. I left the track with a great big smile on my face. Thanks so much for the experience. I won't soon forget it.
    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.
