It’s Time to Drive Your Dream

Don’t let the massive scale of this venue intimidate you, our track-trained instructors ensure you will make the most of every mile at this legendary track!

Check-In & Classroom Session

Specific check-in instructions (such as arrival time or garage number) is emailed directly to participants before the event. To avoid any issues you may encounter with traffic/parking/etc., we recommend arriving approximately 15-20 minutes before your scheduled arrival time.
Arriving early also gives you extra time to explore the facilities with your guests before the excitement begins. Participants are welcome to bring guests to spectate at any LRA event, so invite the family and friends!
Our classroom session is designed to prepare drivers of any skill level for this 3.4-mile, 20-turn racetrack. We cover everything from basic racing terminology to track-specific advice so that all participants enjoy their track time as fully, and safely, as possible!

Gearing Up for the Grid

After the classroom session, participants head through the massive F1 garage and into the grid.
Here family and friends are able to spectate your Supercar adventure, and even get in on the action for themselves by adding a High Speed Ride Along on-site!
Each participant is fitted with a open-face racing helmet (complimentary rental) for maximum visibility and safety. A chatterbox connects drivers to the professional instructor sitting in the passenger seat, allowing valuable feedback to given during the drive.
Personal, in-car instruction is truly the key to enjoying this Supercar adventure. Our top-notch team has years of experience at Circuit of the Americas, both behind the wheel and as professional instructors. With their expertise, you’ll be sure to master the tricky turns and massive straight-aways in no time!

“It was a Bucket List item to drive on the COTA Track….. This was one of my Best Mother’s Day memories. I really appreciated your instructor’s guidance through the COTA Track. He gave me the confidence to have fun, enjoy the moment, and drive fast and faster.”
