Pro Formula Experience

What's it like to be strapped into a professional formula race car like this... going down our back straight and through our well-known turn nine at full throttle? Only two ways to find out.

The Pro Formula Racing Experience at BeaveRun.

If you've ever watched the Indy 500 you've seen the excitement of open-wheel Formula Car Racing. Now, as you suit up and climb into our 1050 lb., 250 hp professional race car capable of speeds over 165 mph, you can experience first-hand the same excitement and adrenaline rush that popular pro formula racers get.

Your three hour experience starts out with a safety discussion followed by familiarization laps in a special BeaveRun Mazda 6 with a professional in-car race instructor who shows you the fastest line and best techniques to get around our 1.6 mile North Track. Next, you and your racing coach get in a Spec Miata race car for full-speed laps (in the triple digits) that warms you up for the big event. It all culminates with the dream drive - 4 laps in an actual Star Mazda race car managed by John Walko Racing - winners of the 2006 Star Mazda Team Championship! The Star Mazda Series helped launch the careers of many of today's open wheel racing stars.

Be ready for a thrill that can't be matched. This is the same car that holds the overall lap record at BeaveRun. How close can you come to that record? Strap yourself in and find out!

In car data acquisition technology and video cam provide a report and record of your performance which is reviewed with you once you catch your breath and enjoy refreshments with your coach. Take home your results, a photo of you and the car, and an in-car video!
