Simraceway Performance Driving Center - Review
Adrenaline junkies will get a kick out of this one. The Simraceway Performance Driving Center not only teaches you to enhance your driving skills, but also allows you your dream run with the McLaren 570. If you want something simpler, you can go kart at breakneck speeds on the school’s track which is the longest in California. Formula 3 enthusiasts can race in the center’s flagship F3 racing series. Beginners can opt for the training courses. For all-round training, there is a mechanics training program offered by this institute. Whatever be the reason for you to get behind wheels, the SPDC offers you more in return. But at the same time, it makes sure that you are a responsible rider.

Simraceway Performance Driving Center, Sonoma Reviews
I took the Performance Driving Program Stage 1 and had a great time! Our instructor Andrew was very good in communicating the fundamentals of performance driving and I left the program a much better driver than when I entered. It is more expensive than other driving programs and clubs but I felt that the quality of instruction was worth it. I'm looking forward to doing the Stage 2 program if I can find the time to do it. EDIT 03/113/18: I went back over the weekend to participate in Performance Driving Program, Stage 2 and it was amazing! I continued to build upon skills learned in PD 1 but in a much more detailed and technical fashion. My instructor was Jeff and he understood a lot of in-depth racecraft that he imparted on my classmate and I. Lucky for us there were only 2 members that day and we had the track to ourselves! That particular day had it all, Fog in the morning, Rain during the mid-day and finally sun in the afternoon. Those mixed conditions led to a large learning curve of the different racing lines. Challenging for sure but rewarding when you got it right. Part of the mystique of Sonoma is it's technical nature and nature did not let us down either. Our classroom was the swanky Turn 1 Club lounge. What a treat! A visual treat to any kind of gearhead or car enthusiast. Filled with luxurious seating, TV visual aids and other cool training gear I felt that I had to come back for a pro race. Let's wrap this up shall we? In short, if you're a motorsport or driving enthusiast definitely sign up for a class. If you don't like for whatever reason at least you will have learned some valuable skills that can be applied to many driving environments.
Great race track. Tons of fun.
$177 for a broke chain... First time racers with no experience. Very fun - the cars were faster than expected and the track was in good shape. Was told to show up anytime but really only allowed to race from 2-6 if you're a newbie. If you're a first time racer but an experienced driver, you can get around the track at a good pace. 3 stars because my 14 year old was with me and had a bit of a time. Went two sessions without an issue and then the 3rd was given a different car (only because it was shuffled around) that he felt handled differently. I can't deny that he may have been pushing a little harder than the first laps but he's not one to usually push the limits. Even as an experienced driver, I had moments when getting used to the kart. I witnessed no out of control movements from him before hand but the girl at the desk said she witnessed 'hard braking'. Maybe. Ended up skidding off track on the first lap and hit the tire barrier. The cart would not go any more so he was out for the race. Turns out the chain came off. Reported as broken - no argument here. Issue came when we were charged $71 for a new chain and $100 labor for a stated one hours work. Enjoyed the time but not impressed with the end game. Would have went back but no chance now, fearing another chain break and a high bill.
This placw is so amazing in so many ways... I love every minute of my experience!
Amazing staff, incredible cars, challenging track, and I don't even have a bucket list, if you do, this needs to be added to yours.
