This is all good information. How much $ is the drift car to add, give or take? Do I need to reserve my car(s) of choice, or voice that when I show up? Also, does the drift require reservations. The "rolling track" concept is a concern. I'm sure the visibility out of a Lambo isn't great.

Great advice! id do more of a driver oriented car. what is the fun of sitting in a computer? the GTR might as well drive for you.

The drift ride was $99 when I did it.

I had to specify which car I wanted before hand, but we had a package cause there were 5 of us so we had transportation to and from our hotel + our drives. The drift is a first come first serve, so you just state you want a ride and they'll put you in the list.

The pro driver with you has your back so you only look forward, he tells you when you are ready to merge and watches your backside so you don't have to. I was nervous about that as well but it worked well and went smoothly.

Did the car driving this weekend and it was great. Drove the Mercedes 300sls AMG (Gullwing) first and had a little trouble w/ turn 1, 4 out of 5 laps and that slowed me down a bit. Drove the Lamborginni Galardo and there was a warning light that came on on my first lap, so we pulled in and they upgraged me to the Galardo Superlagerro so that was cool besides getting in another model. Then did the drift in an Audi R-8. I was pretty fast in the Superllagerro and almost spun out at one point. Was far from super fast being a novice at the track, but let's just say nobody passed me, I was doing the passing. A little frustrating having slower traffic taking your lap times down. I had my best lap going and then a Ferrari got im my way. Great time and highly reccomend it.
