What Prior Experience Do I Need?
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.
- 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.
Do I need to know how to drive a manual?
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 (paddle shifters) 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.
What should I wear?
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.
Can I bring a passenger or guest?
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.
Are food and drinks available?
We have vending machines on location with snacks, beverages and coffee. 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.
Are there any age restrictions?
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.
Is transportation provided?
Do I need a helmet?
Helmets are required for all participants during the driving experience. A helmet will be provided to you to use at no additional cost. Unfortunately due to safety protocol, you may not use your own.
How long does the experience take?
Your reservation time is your DRIVE time so you must arrive at least 40 minutes prior to your reservation time to have time for check in and briefing. A lap is about 1 1/2 minutes long so depending on how many cars you do and how many laps per car your time can range from 1-2 hours. However, please allow additional time if you plan to drive more than 10 laps or more than 2 vehicles.
How are laps counted?
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).
Do I need to make a reservation?
Reservations are highly recommended as many time slots sell out in advance, but walkups are warmly welcomed on a first-available basis.
What should I know before making an online reservation by myself?
There is a 15 minute briefing that occurs every 30 minutes, your reservation time is your drive time. (Example: booking a 1:00pm will be your drive time, meaning your briefing will occur at 12:30pm, you should then arrive by 12:15pm to have time to do your waivers). Missing your briefing may delay your experience. Make your reservation under the name of who will be driving or having the ride-along. Your card will be required to reserve but you will not be charged until your reservation day. There is a 10% service fee that will be combined to your total at checkout. Need help? Give us a call at 702-874-8888 and we will quickly get everything set up for you!
What is the reservation arrival time?
You must arrive early for your appointment to check in, pay and have your briefing class. Briefing classes are every 30 minutes top and bottom of the hour. You must complete your briefing before your scheduled time to drive. Not arriving for the proper briefing class may result in not being able to drive the car that you have booked for.
Is a security deposit required?
