One group heads out to our 1.5-mi North Circuit for several controlled, high-speed lapping sessions following a lead instructor car. Autobahn’s North Circuit is the perfect place to hug the tight corners, throttle up in the straight-away’s, and really enjoy your high-performance street car in a safe environment.

Heavy acceleration, braking, and tight cornering will be needed to negotiate this coned course, and our instructors will record the times for each attempt. In the second hour the groups switch so each guest gets the chance to enjoy both driving activities.
