Driving experience packages - November 11, 2013, 10:56 AM

My family is trying to get my Dad a driving experience package for Christmas. I'm not really familiar with what's out there.

What do you guys recommend? What should we avoid?

A Ferrari day or Indy day would be cool, anything less than $1500.

That rotobox or whatever that pops up on Living Social. I'd pass. It sounds good in theory, until you look at the restrictions.

What type of motorsport does he like? If he likes rally racing at all, might I suggest a rally school?

Team O'neil | Train, Race, Win

When I was rallycrossing, a lot of the fast guys and actual rally racers spoke nothing but good things about team o'neil.

Porsche Precision High Performance Course. I think this is held at Skip Barber.

https://www.porschedriving.com/Preci...ng-Course.aspx

BMW Performance Driving School. This should be at BMW's personal track in Charleston, SC.
BMW Performance Driving School - BMW North America

If open wheel is what you want, Skip Barber, Derek Daly, and Andretti all have 1-Day driver academies.

There's an Ariel Atom experience at VIR that I've always wanted to try.
