The best experience i've had so far. Instructors were awesome. I drove my own car and never was concerned about damage. Super fun track to drive, I'll be back often.

It's a good start to get teens aware of what a car can and cannot do. But, don't expect it to make them expert drivers in one day. The course should've had more crash avoidance exercises with pop up obstacles instead of driving around cones.

What a great professional team at SIM! We did a three day private course that boosted all of our lap times. The coaching and professionalism was outstanding. Highly recommend working with SIM to learn and enjoy a great track at Sonoma.

Gave this as a surprise gift for my husbands 60 th birthday. He enjoyed it immensely. Our son joined him making the day even more memorable. He loved the McLaren cars. Would highly recommend this experience!!

Its been a long time since I've had a self induced adrenaline rush. I've had an ear to ear grin since! Please do yourself a favor and attend the half-day course. It's a great time and wonderful memories.
