Not much is more exciting than the visceral experience of the roaring and rumbling of high horsepower racing cars. One thing that is more exciting? Getting behind the wheel yourself and feeling the thrill of controlling a powerful machine.
With a Pocono Raceway Driving Experience, you have the chance to experience the vibrations in your hands as you grip the steering wheel and race over the track. See below for some different ways that you can make a Pocono Raceway Driving Experience happen!
The Pocono Raceway Driving Experience
Have you ever wanted to zoom down a racetrack in a stock car? With a Pocono Raceway Driving Experience, you can! There are a few different companies that rent out high power stock cars to drive the iconic Tricky Triangle. Fly down the same track that professionals in the IndyCar Series and NASCAR have raced on in your very own racecar with these experiences!
Stock Car Racing Experience
With a Stock Car Racing Experience at the Poconos Raceway, you can choose from several different adventures. Go for a classic stock car experience, bring your own sports car, or pick a Poconos Raceway exotic car experience and drive an exotic car along the challenging 2.5 miles of track.
If you want to race with friends, consider trying Team Prokart Racing! This activity brings go-karts to the Poconos Raceway to create a high-octane experience. Your heart will be sure to race, as the karts that are just one inch above the ground reach speeds of up to 50 MPH. Karts, racing suits, helmets, trophies are all provided so you’ll have everything you need for a thrilling day.
Dream Drive Exotics
Choose from a three, five, or seven-lap autocross experience through Dream Drive Exotics. You can also opt to go on a ride along, in which you sit back and enjoy the ride as a passenger as someone else drives the car. The cars available from Dream Drive Exotics include Lamborghinis, Ferraris, a McLaren, an Audi, and a Maserati.
The Formula Experience
Drive anywhere between 3 and 70 laps with a Pocono Raceway Formula Experience. As with the above company, you can choose to either drive the car yourself or ride along (though you can only book 3 laps with a ride along). The car available for the formula experience is a Nemesis SC99, and the ride along car is a Mazda Miata.
