Experience the thrill of racing around the track from the front passenger seat. Suit up, strap in and hold on tight for 3 thrilling laps, driven by one of an experienced race tested coach.
Soar around the track in a Chevrolet Camaro SS, a Ford Mustang GT or Nissan 370Z!

Your driving adventure begins with a classroom session to learn the basics of high-performance driving including finding race the line, breaking and cornering techniques, and much more. 

Next, you’ll get geared up in your racing suit and intercom equipped helmet. You'll climb behind the wheel, get strapped in and prepare for some high-speed fun.

You will be paired with a professional racing driver. They will be with you in the car to coach you in proper racing techniques while you are out on the racetrack.

There are no limits on speed. You are in control! You’ll never look at these cars the same way again.

No racing experience is required.

Mission Raceway Park - One of the key features of the Road Course at Mission Raceway Park is the very fast front straight which leads into corner 1, one of the slowest corners on the track.  Very hard breaking is going to be needed here. It’s features like this that make this car racing track known for being hard on brakes.

Mission Raceway Park is only a short drive Vancouver, British Columbia. The track has grandstands and open-air viewing areas. Bring along family and friends to watch you fulfill your need for speed!
