The Simraceway Performance Driving School affords thrill-seekers the chance to conjure their inner race car driver by putting them behind the wheel of a cutting-edge Audi or a Formula 3 car on the Sonoma Raceway. Participants also learn tricks of the track from instructors. Those who have a need for speed can sign up for lessons that range from an introduction to go-kart driving to improving your performance car control skills.

Visitors – many of them car enthusiasts – enjoyed the thrill of pushing the vehicles to their limits. They also gushed about the knowledgeable driving instructors.

The different experiences start at $295 for the 2.5-hour Audi Autocross Challenge and Introduction to Karting program, and they're all hosted at the Sonoma Raceway, south of Sonoma Plaza. There are other experiences that increase in difficulty level and price. You have to book your experience in advance, and the hours of operation vary based on your booking. For more information, visit the school's website.
