half day racing school in freaking RADICALS (more after video)

Its at Atlanta Motorsports Park, and this will be my first experience outside of karts on a proper racetrack. And what an experience it’ll be. Just the description has my hyped.


“This half day experience is designed to give you a taste of what it’s like to be a race car driver while enjoying the thrill of driving a Radical SR1 race car. You get to suit up like a pro with full-face helmet and racing suit, and learn the fundamentals of driving a race car. To reinforce our classroom session, and prepare you for the experience of a lifetime, we follow up with live demonstrations and practice laps in our street cars as well as time in high tech racing simulators.

  • Drive a real 182 bhp Radical SR1 race car, 0 to 60 in 3.5 seconds
  • Two 15 minute track sessions in a Radical SR1
  • No prior experience necessary
  • Suit and helmet provided.

You’ll be strapped into a real 182 bhp Radical SR1 racecar, capable of accelerating from 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds and reaching 140mph in the draft. These high precision cars can pull up to 2g’s in the corners and stop on a dime. The reclining seat position, open cockpit provides you with the unique experience and a birds-eye-view of exactly what the pros see when they are battling it out, head-to-head on TV.”

Holy... I’m either gonna have fun or die having fun but it’s definitely going to be an eye opener
