Experience the game changing McLaren sports and super
series sports cars, now at Simraceway Performance

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 the driver-centric McLaren 570 is a game-changing sports car. It:

  • is the only car in its class featuring a carbon-fiber chassis,
  • boasts best-in-class power-to-weight ratio, and
  • has standard-issue carbon ceramic brakes.
The McLaren 570 is equally at home on the open road as the track. We recommend testing its full capabilities on the track: its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 propels it from standstill to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds and 124 mph in 9.5 seconds! This beast tops out at a staggering 204 mph. Do you have the courage to unleash it? Find out by participating in any of the following courses at the McLaren Sports car Experience.
McLaren 570 Introduction:
Full Day; $1,995

This introduction to the McLaren 570 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. By day’s end, you’ll be a confident 570 pilot

McLaren 570 Intermediate: Full Day; $2,195
($3,495 If Purchased With McLaren 570 Introduction)

Graduates of the McLaren 570 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 to the track for four 30-minute lapping sessions.

McLaren 570 Advanced:
Full Day; $2,995

If you’ve completed the McLaren 570 Intermediate course, you’re eligible for the intense, immersive McLaren 570 Advanced course. This 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!
