Okay my fellow race crazies... this is one thing you got to do. Get some friends together and go racing (do it for adult birthday party instead of hanging at a bar). Way fun! Dreams of F1 and dueling with Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton, etc....More

Took my son here for 11th birthday. The tracks were fun. The kids had a great time. Worth the price for racing.
