I read some of the negative reviews on Yelp and adjusted my expectations as to what this was. Many if the negatives are true: short course in a parking lot, attempts at upsell, very limited time behind the wheel...and yet, I have to say that I couldn't help but enjoy myself. The staff is great, the Porsche is fantastic...it will leave you wanting more, just not in a terribly negative way. I won't do this again, yet feel that everyone should do this once.
Track too short, barely 1/4 mile. no sufficient straightaways to excellerate. drove the porsche, but wasn't allowed to shift even though i told the 'instructor' i was a licensed PCA driver.
I like being in a sports car, but the course really didn’t allow to open the throttle and get that super car feel. Fontana has a mile long track and a long straight away that gives that rush you come to expect with driving such a great car
Cone and the parking lot lines gave me hard to read the course. If there were clear white or yellow line along the course will be much clear to drive and enjoyable. Since instructor did not say anything about free 1 lap practice run. Bit my instructor was very experienced and experience was more then an average. Thank you so much!!!
The experience of driving was wonderful. The main problem was we had to wait 3 1/2 hours to experience it. Very understaffed. The people that were there were very friendly and nice people. My only complaint was the time we had to wait!
It was a good experience for a first time. Now gives me an idea how to venture out to racetrack style
Too long of a wait for 15 minute experience.
The staff was awesome but it ran very late. My son's ride was over an hour late. Keep the day moving, other than that all good.
The drive itself was a riot! The people were great to work with. I would give a 5 star rating, except being that 2 instructors were out sick, I waited over 1.5 hours after my check in time. Being that I got there early, total wait time was almost 2 hours. Also, the GT3 was a GREAT car, but could have used stickier tires. I'm used to driving on Hoosiers on the track, so my expectations are probably a bit higher than the normal driver.
The wait was quite long even there’s reservation.
The track was too short. I wish it was longer.
The cars were great, and the instructor I had was good too, but the track layout was very tame, almost a square shape and quite narrow, it did not have enough variation and space to really get the feel of the car.
Wish course had been more real and not just cones in a parking lot. Also wish cost wasn’t as much- seems overpriced to me. Otherwise staff, drivers and cars were great.
Very happy with the experience. Please note that the driving will be limited to a circuit marked by cones in a parking lot.
The parking lot wasn’t big enough to test drive 3 laps to get the car up to it’s full potential. Wasn’t well organized.
The staff and instructors were extremely knowledge and helpful. Would recommend to anyone who is seeking an adventure. My favorite drive the Porsche
I would love to have had a somewhat longer stretch in order to accelarate a bit more. Other than that, it was very good. Lots of fun! I will recommend it.
