Bay Area McLaren Driving Experience


If you’re fascinated by the mechanics and science of driving and the precision of the world’s finest vehicles — but also love testing these cars’ limits (and your skills), take heart! There’s a performance driving center in North America that strikes the ideal balance between serious instruction and action-packed race-car driving experiences: The McLaren Sports car Experience at Sonoma Raceway.

McLaren: 182 F1 Race wins, 12 F1 drivers championships and 8 F1 constructors championships

McLaren has cemented its place in Formula 1 history, and our McLaren Experience packages allow you to explore a variety of models of this superior automobile.


Perhaps you’ve always dreamt of speeding around the track in the McLaren 570 with its 3.8-liter twin turbo V8 pushing you to 124 mph in a staggering 9.5 seconds! Or perhaps, you’ve always heard the call of the 650S with it’s 650 bhp and top speed of 207.


Options are always a good thing, so we do our best to keep a variety of these amazing machines at the ready.


Do you have the courage to unleash the power of the McLaren? Find out by participating in any of the following courses at the McLaren Sports car Experience.

McLaren Experience Introduction:
Full Day; $CLOSED

This introduction to the McLaren line involves classroom time learning baseline skills, then hands-on time at the 2.52-mile Sonoma Raceway course. Test your skills with dynamic car-control exercises and four 30-minute lapping sessions both behind-the-wheel as well as from the right seat with your driving coach. By day’s end, you’ll be a confident McLaren pilot.

McLaren Experience Intermediate: Full Day; $CLOSED

Graduates of the McLaren Experience Introductory course are eligible for this more rigorous intermediate training series. Already familiar with the car’s capabilities, you’ll be challenged to push its limits — and your own. You’ll practice vehicle rotation, trail braking and cornering techniques. Then, you’ll return back to the raceway for even faster lapping sessions.

McLaren Experience Advanced:
Full Day; $CLOSED

If you’ve completed the McLaren Experience Intermediate course, you’re eligible for the intense, immersive McLaren Experience Advanced course. This is your opportunity to master this precision instrument and conquer Sonoma Raceway.

You’ll receive one-on-one instruction, but you’ll take the helm for five open-lapping sessions as your instructor rides right seat or trails in a separate vehicle. Experience what McLaren veterans like Niki Lauda, Emerson Fittipaldi, James Hunt and Lewis Hamilton experienced!

Roads of Sonoma:
$CLOSED for a private car, $CLOSED for a shared car

Explore the best of Sonoma, Napa and the California Bay Area behind the wheel of the McLaren 570s, 570GT, 650s, or any of our stable of McLaren’s waiting for you. This spirited lifestyle drive will take you through the hills, wineries and wooded roads of the California Wine Country or the breathtaking Sonoma coastal shoreline. Stops will be made for scenic photo opportunities as well as a gourmet lunch at a unique destination.
