Identical MINI John Cooper Works Hardtops are provided for each driver.

No previous racing or performance driving experience is required. 2-time Indy 500 runner-up, Scott Goodyear, will conduct the drivers meeting and provide instruction via in-car radio during a low speed orientation lap of the course. You will then get three timed lapping sessions with breaks in between to debrief with your teammates. Scott will be available for additional coaching during the breaks. Upon completion of the timed laps, he will then take to the course to do a few timed laps of his own so that you can directly compare your laps times to those a high level, professional race car driver! Individual and team standings are calculated and displayed in real time during the event. Participation takes approximately two hours. Standings are also accessible on your smart phone so that you can keep track of both individual and team standings throughout the day. At the end of the day, the winning team is the one with the lowest cumulative time when adding together each of the three drivers' fastest laps.
