^ Was going to join a buddy for that when I realized it was a bad deal for me considering my wife gifted me a 4 lap track time on 4 diff supercars in NJ for only $99. That was through groupon in NJ/Philly :-)

From their page, it looks like they use the Jefferson Circuit instead of Main. Those will be some very, very short laps with not a lot of room to showcase the power of these cars. I would confirm which track they plan to use first.

Well, that changes things. It will only take a couple of minutes to go around.

Damn quick way to blow money, not worth it in my book. I'll stick with my little old Porsche.

$100 to park a lambo, sounds like paying to be a valet guy

Seems like a lot of money to pay for a few minutes of seat time.

i think there are better packages where you spend almost half a day for around $700. This one is a ripoff

I invested in the Indy car promo, I jumped the gun without reading the fine print so I got stuck paying for pretty much- I think- 10 minutes of track time. Oh well, I guess the investment went more towards the fact that I will be able to say I drove an indy car.

There's nothing wrong with Jefferson, not as long as Summit Main, but 2 straightaways to get the car up to good speed

Nice find....but I would rather do the Gotham Dream Car Tour: http://www.gothamdreamcars.com/dream-car-tour.htm. I almost did this last year, but my plans fell through. I can definitely do it this year though. Not trying to , but if anyone is interested, let me know.

Here is one of the tours for 2011: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLVBs5fhDV4

Jefferson Circuit? That will keep things boring. Not to mention I am almost certain they will use a pace car.
