Are the Cars Automatic?
All of our cars are automatic. In order to provide the most favorable experience, all of the vehicles have an automatic transmission. This will allow faster, more accurate acceleration through corners and sprints.
Am I the Driver or Passenger?
If you purchased a Ride Along, you are a passenger. If you purchased a Driving Experience, you are the driver. An instructor will sit in the passenger seat for guidance, safety, and insurance purposes, but you will have complete control of the vehicle.
What is the minimum age to drive?
You must be at least 18 years old with a valid drivers license.
Are Spectators allowed?
YES. Family and friends are more than welcome! Note: Access to see the course is limited due to safety regulations.
Will my current insurance cover me at an event?
Please see our insurance disclosure below.
What time should I arrive for my event?
You should arrive at the event location 20 minutes prior to the time you scheduled on the registration page. This will give you plenty of time to chat with our staff, sign up, and get ready for the time of your life.
How long does the experience take?
Depending on how many laps, the entire time you will be at the location can be 30 minutes to 1 ½ hours.
How long is the track?
The event isn’t on a “track”. It is actually an autocross style course. This is set up with cones and geared for more agility driving.
Is Dream Drive Exotics hands on driving experience dangerous?
CHALLENGING? INTENSE? THRILLING? Yes, we are all those things and more.
However, we hold safety to the highest standard and do not create any courses that will truly put you in danger of serious injury or death. Circuit-1 is meant to be an experience that you will get to tell your grandchildren about someday.
Who can participate?
Anyone at least 18 years of age with a valid driver’s license.
What is Autocross?
AUTOCROSS is a form of motorsports that emphasizes safe competition and active participation. An autocross is a timed competition in which drivers navigate one at a time through a defined course on either a sealed or an unsealed surface. Autocross differs from road racing and oval racing in that generally there is only one car on the track, racing against the clock rather than other cars. As an entry-level motorsport it provides a stepping stone for drivers looking to move into other more competitive and possibly expensive forms of racing (such as rallying and circuit racing).
Autocross courses are typically one to two kilometres long and tend to place demands on car handling and driver skill rather than on engine power and outright speed. Courses may be temporary and marked by traffic cones or be permanent tracks with approval by a motorsport body.
Events typically have many classes that allow almost any vehicle, from economy sedans to purpose-built racing cars, to compete. Due to the nature of a typical track, speeds can be slower when compared to other forms of motorsports, usually not exceeding highway speeds, but the activity level (measured in discrete turns per minute) can be higher than even formula one due to the large number of elements packed into each course.
Are Dates Guaranteed?
All dates are subject to change. Occasionally situations will arise that will cause a date change. If a date should be changed we will notify all customers affected within 24 hrs or next business day. Replacement dates will be posted online ASAP.
Can I Reschedule?
Rescheduling is permitted if your selected date is 30 days or more away. Once you are within 30 days of your experience there is a $50 rescheduling fee to select a new date.
How do I redeem my Voucher?

Can I transfer my registration to someone else?
Yes as long as the other individual meets all the requirements of the program. We do ask that you make that change two weeks in advance of your date.
What’s included in the registration fee?
In addition to laps included in your package, you will receive instruction from a professional driver who will be in the vehicle with you.
