Get behind the wheel the worlds best supercars including, the Ferrari F430 Spider, Nissan GTR, Lamborghini Gallardo, Maserati GranTurismo, Porsche 911 Turbo S, and more for laps around a specifically-designed autocross racetrack, and explore what these amazing machines are all about. You will have an intructor in the passenger seat giving you pointers on how to get the most out of your experience. All vehicles have F1-style transmissions with paddle shifters, so no stick-shift experience is required! If you're at least 18 years of age and have a drivers' license, you can easily drive one of these high-performance machines in a day that all of your family and friends will envy. Not 18 yet or without a license? You can still experience these cars in an instructor ride-along experience.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
All participents must be 18 years of age and possess a valid drivers' license to get behind the wheel. However, participants under age 18* or without a driver's license can still take part in an instructor-driven ride-along experience.
*Must of legal age to ride in the front seat of a vehicle not require a child safety seat.

We supply free parking for all participnts and spectators. Once you arrive at the venue, there will be signs and flags directing you where to park and enter.

The policy at the event is $40 and covers up to $10,000 in damage with a zero deductible; and covers the participant for the entire event day.
Should I bring any money with me?
Aside from the insurance stated above; we will have t-shirts, hats, and other apparel available for sale at the event. This is a great way to show-off your experience to everybody! If you'd like more laps in the car, or would like to drive another car, you may purchase additional event vouchers on-site at a discounted rate. We accept cash and credit/debit cards for all laps, insurance, and apparel at the event.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
Bring your friends, family, and a smile! Please do not bring pets.

Can my friends/family take photos or video of my experience?
Due to insurance reasons, only the participant is allowed past the gates to the vehicle area. We offer professional photos for $15, which are available to you via download on our website following the event.

If you purchase the photo & video package, it is $40 combined.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Yes, as long as the participant brings the unique voucher with them that was emailed when scheduling their event. You do not need to change the name on the reservation prior to the event.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Yes, you will need to bring your Eventbrite email confirmation to the event. This can either be printed, or on a smartphone. You do not need to bring your Groupon, Living Social, Amazon Local, Living Huntington, Rush 49, or other voucher with you.
What is the refund policy?
A refund may only be collected within 24 hours of your purchase. No refunds permitted on day of event. Once event date is scheduled, the voucher may not be exchanged or redeemed for any other dates. If an event is cancelled or postponed due to weather or other unforseen circumstances, you will be allowed to choose another date.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
The driving vouchers are fully transferrable. As long as the new attendee has your email confirmation with them, they can take your spot.
Will all of these vehicles be available on the day of my event?
Vehicle attendance is based on availability. We have four to five vehicles at our events. We do not guarantee that any specific vehicle will be at any event. This is because we cannot forseen any mechanical issues, or other issues that may occur anytime before the morning of the event. These are exotic cars, and not known for their reliability. Often, a vehicle will break-down during an event and not be able to be driven for the remainder of that weekend. No refunds or rescheduling will be issued if your vehicle of choice is not available.
Velocity Driving is for driving enthusiasts. If you enjoy driving, and dream to enjoy the best drivers' cars in the world on the best roads and tracks in the world; then our events are for you. We don't believe that these precision-engineered machines should only be experienced by those fortunate enough to own one. Even renting one of these cars for the day, weekend, or week can cost many thousands of dollars, and you're still just on public roads with speed limits and real danger. What if you could experience these beauties on a closed-course racetrack, in a safe environment, and without the large financial burdon of renting? Imagine being able to feel for yourself the power and handling that, until-now, only magazines could attempt to describe in words. Go full-throttle on some of the best professionally-designed autocross tracks in the world. See, first-hand, what all the hype is about, and be the envy of all your friends.
