TWS Race Experience Programs
TWS Race Experience Programs
Are you a racing fan? Are you glued to the TV on race weekends? Maybe you’re a speed addict, or just an adrenaline junkie? Texas World Speedway has your fix with a chance to experience what the pros do on a race track in one of our track-prepared cars!
The TWS Experience Programs are your chance to hit speeds up to 120mph on one of the top road racing courses in the nation. Strap into one of our cars with a TWS instructor and your pulse won’t be the only thing racing! TWS puts you on the track and behind the wheel of a track-prepped 2011 Mustang for laps of thrills. No racing experience is required, TWS provides the instructor, helmet, the car and the race track. You just bring the adrenaline! This program is conducted by experienced racers and high performance driving instructors and has an exceptional safety record.
Your day at the Speedway will begin with a short orientation meeting where your instructor will prepare you for your on-track experience. Once fitted for a helmet, you and your instructor attack the legendary 2.9-mile road course in one of the Mustangs for an unforgettable high speed experience! Three heart-pounding programs are available!
TWS Road Racing Experience
This is the “real deal” for those who want to instantly immerse themselves in the world of road racing! After your orientation and safety briefing, you will hit the track during the TWS Performance Driving School (PDS). Session 1 is a ten minute intro ride in the Mustang, where your instructor will show you how to attack the track turn-by-turn, at speed, with up to 30 other skilled drivers on track. You’ll experience threshold braking, lateral G forces, full acceleration, passing (and being passed) and more as the performance capabilities of the Mustang shine! After your ride-along session, you will take the wheel during a 15-minute Novice PDS session, where your instructor will hop in the right seat and talk you through piloting the car around the course wheel to wheel with other cars! We match you with other Novice drivers and restrict passing zones to ensure your safety, but the “WOW factor” is unmatched! $225 per seat
TWS Ride and Drive
Ride and Drive puts you behind the wheel under controlled conditions, with 1 to 3 identical cars on track. Your instructor will take you out for 3 high-speed laps, showing you not only the layout of the track but also just how much the Scion FR-S can do! After a brief stop on pit road, you will switch to the driver’s seat pushing the Mustangs around the track for another 4 laps, with your instructor coaching you from the right seat. The entire experience will last about 30 minutes during which time you will see, hear and feel what it’s like to race like the pros! This limited program is only offered on weekdays, and select weekend evenings when they track is available. This program is also available for corporate outings and private groups, call for group pricing! $125 per seat
The TWS Ride Along is offered only during TWS Performance Driving School weekends. See what it's like to race in Grand Am, SCCA and others! Strap into the right seat of the Mustang for 5 laps at full speed! A TWS instructor will take you out for hot laps during one run group, with up to 30 other cars on track! If you like bungee jumping, sky-diving and roller coasters but are not sure you’re ready to drive a car in close quarters at 120mph, this package is for you! No orientation required, get in and go! $50 per seat
