  • Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines — and put the pedal to the metal from the driver's seat of the Formula 2000 race car driving experience! No speed limit or oncoming traffic exists. Just a car loaded with horsepower and begging you unleash it on the track!

    You'll be learning from a driving school founded by a Formula One professional, with over 30 years of experience providing Formula 2000 race car driving experiences.

    Your big day starts with an introductory classroom session, where you'll learn how to safely drive a race car.  Find out what it takes to most efficiently handle a powerful Formula 2000 vehicle, so you can get the most out of your track time. Professional instructors will train you on specs about the race car itself, as well as skills and techniques required for your race car driving experience.

    Once training wraps up, it will be time for you to drive a race car that's capable of going from zero to 60 MPH in only 4.2 seconds, and reaching speeds of up to 130 MPH. All thanks to its 150 BHP.

    Finish up your classroom orientation with a live racing demonstration, then complete a practice run in a Volvo Sedan. This nicely-paced demo lap will give you a great feel for the lay of the track's land, so that you're more than ready to hop into the cockpit of your Formula 2000 car!

    Finally it's time to burn some rubber of your own! Suit up in the same race car driving gear worn by Formula 2000 pros. Once your racing suit and full-face helmet are securely fastened, strap into the driver's seat and prepare to peel out of pit road!

    Racing Options

    • Half-Day Program: Two 20-minute racing sessions or 30 laps of racing
    • Full-Day Program: Four 20-minute racing sessions or 60 laps of racing

Both courses are used, but only one operates for each program date. The Thunderbolt Raceway features 2.25 miles of asphalt, 12 challenging turns and a half-mile straightaway.
