About The Experience

Get answers to common questions about participating in a SPEEDVEGAS experience.

None! This experience is open to everyone.

There are no specific weight or height restrictions for participation in the SPEEDVEGAS experiences. However, most of our exotic cars have limited headroom and are fitted with factory-provided racing seats, which provide lateral support. It is our experience that drivers over 280 lbs or 6'5" or taller may be uncomfortable. We advise that if you fall into this category it is better to call us before booking an event.

In addition:

  • Drivers need to be at least 18 years old.
  • Drivers must hold a valid driving license in the country of their residence.
  • Drivers must be able to drive the cars without the aid of special equipment.

No. All of the cars in this experience have an "automatic mode" where the clutch and gear selection is handled by a computer. You can also choose the F1-style paddles to operate gear changes. Some also use "sequential manual gearboxes," or triptronic shifters. This new E-Gear technology is found in many new high performance cars (including some FormulaOne cars), and is a manual gearbox where the clutch and gear selection is handled by a computer when you pull the gear change paddle.

Sport casual is ideal. The pedals on some of the cars are close together, so open-toed shoes (such as flip-flops and heels) are not permitted. When you arrive, we will provide a helmet for you at no additional cost. Cameras may not be mounted outside the cars, or used by you while you are driving. Lockers are available at the SPEEDVEGAS facility to store your belongings.

Sure! You may bring family or friends to watch your experience. Our second-story viewing terraces provide a terrific vantage point of the entire complex, and refreshments are available in the cafe.

Your guests won't be able to ride along with you on the track, since a SPEEDVEGAS coach will be riding in the passenger seat during the driving portion of your experience.

Our cafe´ offers a selection of light fare and drinks that can be enjoyed inside, or outdoors on the viewing terraces. For larger events, our on-site catering facilities offer a wide array of options to meet food & beverage needs for groups of any size.

In addition, the M Casino is located just two miles from SPEEDVEGAS on Las Vegas Boulevard, and offers thirteen fine dining, casual dining, and bar options.

Drivers must be at least 18 years old, and must hold a valid driving license in the country of their residence. Passengers of any age may ride along, as long as they weigh more than 60lbs (20kg), are older than 6, and are able to ride without the aid of special equipment such as booster seats.

We include free pickup and drop-off at most major hotels on the Las Vegas strip. Complimentary shuttles run approximately every 30 minutes. Simply stop by the host desk after your experience to arrange details.

Helmets are required for all participants during the driving experience. A helmet will be provided to you to use at no additional cost.

We recommend allowing at least two hours for your entire experience. However, please allow an additional time if you plan to drive more than 10 laps or more than 2 vehicles.

At SPEEDVEGAS, we count laps a little bit differently. Here's what you need to know:

  • The first lap begins when you exit the starting lineup/pit lane onto the track. When the car passes the starting grid on the front straight, your second lap will begin. Your final lap will end when you pass the starting grid.
  • After completing your laps, you'll continue around the track, exiting at the pit lane. This helps us cool the car down before returning to your starting position.
  • This means that you will travel down the front straight for 5 times during a 5 lap experience. During a 5 lap experience, you'll drive a total of 9 miles (14.5km).

Making Reservations

Get answers to common questions about making your SPEEDVEGAS experience reservation.

Walkups are warmly welcomed on a first-available basis. However, we recommend that you reserve your vehicle and timeslot, as many sessions sell out in advance.

We stand behind our experience. If there is a problem, we'll work with you to fix the issue. If we can't solve the problem, we'll refund you. You can transfer your booking to another driver at any time. You may also reschedule your reservation to a future date prior to your scheduled event.

Insurance is included in the experience at no additional cost.

Drivers must be at least 18 years old, and must have valid driving license in the country of their residence. Passengers of any age may ride along, as long as they weigh more than 60 lbs (27kg) and are older than 6.

No security deposit is required.

Awesome time!!

"Awesome time!! I keep watching the video so i do better next time. The whole staff was great. Planning to go back in September for my brother's 21st birthday. If you like speed and cars, I highly recommend SPEEDVEGAS!! The only down side was the Vette was in the shop so i drove the Porsche, still a fun car but I am looking forward on getting behind the wheel on the Corvette."

Great Experience!

"Fantastic experience! If I ever get back to Vegas I would do it again...and again. The emphasis on safety was very apparent and comforting. Todd was so patient and calm that I never felt nervous which enhanced the drive for me. It is a story that I regale my friends with for quite a while. Everyone associated with the track and business was very accommodating."

Pentelope Rassey

Great Staff & Coach

"Behind the wheel it seems like you are really moving through the turns, but the wife said it looked really slow from the viewing platform, and she is right. I guess I have watched too much NASCAR on TV. I have a better appreciation of what it would be like to run at Indy or on a NASCAR track for a full race...pretty intense. Very professional organization, and great staff & coach."

Mike Downes

Ready for the Autobahn!

"I experienced the Italian Faceoff (Ferrari 458 Italia and Lamborghini Huracán). Both cars were fantastic. The instructor will give you tips as you drive, building up your confidence. The Ferrari felt more approachable, like you wouldn't mind driving it to the grocery store. The Lamborghini screams take me to the autobahn and floor it. Thank you SPEEDVEGAS!"

Gabrielle Lucas

Friendly & Encouraging

"It turned out to be a better experience than I thought and what really stood out was the friendliness of the staff. Jay was my classroom instructor. He explained everything that was about to happen which made the experience relaxing. He’s very friendly and pays attention to customer concerns. Stephan was my coach and he was very friendly and encouraging on the track."

Stephan Denning

Treated like a driver

"I really enjoyed myself at SPEEDVEGAS. I came in for my birthday and was treated like a racecar driver. LOL. The customer service is awesome as well. Really nice people, really nice experience."

William Elton

Will change your life

"There is no good reason to miss this experience 10 minutes south of the strip. My coach was Chris and he knew his stuff. If you are even mildly interested in cars, performance and even sports cars, this may very well change your freakin' life. You will leave shaking. I had to hold back tears at one point. God bless America!"

Justin Morely
Sweden

Super Positive

"Fantastic place! Everyone was super friendly and organized. The track is longer than the others in the area, with a bigger straightaway and less hairpin turns. This lets you really get more speed. The instructors are super positive and of course know what they are doing."
