    its not too much more than a skip babrber weekend even, honestly. i guess it all depends on what the teach you about the car and the seat time you get with it.

    If it wasnt speed limited and the seat time wasnt ridiculously short, I'd give it a shot. My dad did the Nascar experience at Pocono, you're limited to 160 I think. He said he could've went a LOT faster, he was going thru the turns almost topping out and then had a short burst on the straight. He said if they offered an advanced ride or something he'd do it again, otherwise he said it wasnt anything to brag about. 160 seems fast now but when you get out on that big banked track he said it feels like you arent even moving.

    Word, espcially when they arn't even all that expensive in the first place. You can own one for something like $60k.
