NASCAR kids and race-car loving teens will feel right at home during a session with Formula Experiences this spring. At the Virginia International Raceway & Resort, guests can observe, ride along and even drive actual 2018 racecars around the track.
The motor-heads in your family can stay at the resort while playing FIA pro and experience the power behind the wheel — just like a Formula One and IndyCar racecar driver.
Make it a weekend trip staying in a luxury villa, conveniently located within earshot of the racetrack for an elevated racing experience. If you want to be closer to the action, opt for a pit lane room along the raceway — either way, your family will be completely immersed in the racing world from start to finish.
Formula Experiences offer memorable family trips and bonding with heart-pounding speed the kids won’t soon forget, and time spent with comfort food in the relaxing Virginia countryside. With easy access to the track and pro-driving guidance, hit the road by day and enjoy gourmet southern fare by night. Check out the full list of experiences and choose the most thrilling options for your family.
If the kids need more speed, join them to go-kart race or on the motocross track. If the racecars, go-karts and dirt bikes aren’t exactly your speed, unwind with a spa treatment at the resort.
If you just want to call shotgun on this one, book a ride along and experience up to
140 mph speeds around the track. Book a ride by day or opt for a unique, one-of-a-kind night ride. If you have driven before and know your way around the track, there is a more advanced option for you. Check out the various sessions here and see which best fits your family, skill level and interests.
