The Indy Racing Experience puts you in a real IndyCar Series Car. These cars have been retrofitted for two passengers. Depending on which experience you choose, you can either sit behind a professional driver or take part in the driving program that puts you behind the wheel.

INDY RACING EXPERIENCE DRIVING PROGRAM:
PRICE: 399 plus tax
You follow a lead car making 1 warm up lap, 6 laps at speed and 1 cool down lap. You determine the speed you're comfortable with as you race the course.
The Indy Racing Experience will take place daily at 4:00pm until sundown. Participants need to arrive by 3:00pm for classroom instruction and to fill out the required paperwork.
When you arrive and have signed the waivers, you'll be fitted in a full fire suit, helmet, gloves and fire shoes. (Dress comfortably and please bring socks.)
From here you'll go through an orientation and a classroom session. You'll learn how the car works and every effort will be made to ensure that you're comfortable both in and out of the car.
There will be a special sitting area where guests can watch you drive and take photos/video of your experience.
Following the experience, a picture will be taken of you in your fire suit next to the car. It will be posted in the photo gallery of the official website Indy Racing Experience where you can view and print it.
When using Disney transportation, take the Richard Petty Driving Experience Shuttle from the Ticket and Transportation Center which picks up next to the Magic Kingdom Kennel.
Please note that all programs are subject to close if the weather is inclement. Call ahead to verify that the track is open.
