"I had a great time with racing the Audi R8 V10. My instructor was great and definitely enhanced my experience. I received one extra lap for being active duty military member. My past experience in the Ferrari F430 was really fun, but my instructor was less enhancing of the experience. I thought he was very knowledgeable and professional, but just felt the experience was different."

"I gave this gift as a gift to my father for Christmas, and it was a great bonding experience. I am looking forward to booking many more! I probably wouldn't book this specific experience again because since the location was in Fontana (from San Diego) so it was a longer commute than actual experience, but we knew that going into it."
