Drive Experiences range from $ 365 to $ 975 depending on car chosen and availability

A group tour of the facility can be done

There is also the Simulator Lab where up to 18 guests per hour can race in heats.

Lastly, the facility has some great dining options and hotel recommendations.

Porsche,  There is No Substitute

Driver Education (DE) is an opportunity to learn to drive on a real racetrack. You typically drive in a run group of similarly skilled drivers and, if you are new to DE, an instructor will be assigned to guide you through the entire process / course. You will acquire the knowledge and develop the skills needed to drive safely at a high rate of speed. The goal is to have safe, high-speed fun. When you participate in a DE, you become a different, better and safer driver. You develop a set of skills and reflexes that are useable in your daily driving on city streets, country roads, and highways.

The Everglades Region is not currently hosting Driver Education events. There is significant cost to rent the racetrack, especially a circuit like Sebring, and a core team of enthusiasts and instructors are needed to put on the event. At this time, Everglades Region does not have the critical mass necessary to host on our own. However, there is potential to co-sponsor a DE event in Florida with another PCA region or car club. Your board will continue to work these opportunities.

The video below gives a quick glimpse of what typically takes place at track events around the country. We hope it will encourage you to join us at the track.

In the interim, interested Everglades Region members are referred to our neighboring PCA regions. Suncoast Region ( http://suncoastpca.org ) and Gold Coast Region ( http://www.goldcoastregion.org ), frequently host DE’s at Sebring and other Florida tracks. In addition, PBOC Motorsports Club ( http://pbocflorida.com/  ) and Chin Motorsports ( http://www.chinmotorsports.com  ) schedule frequent DE events in the region. Full details are available on their respective websites.
