The Richard Petty Driving Experience at Walt Disney World Resort allows guests to drive a real professional race car around the track to experience the joy of racing. Of course, different packages are offered for different experiences & price levels.
On June 14th, two new Piston Cup cars will be added to the line up…. #28 Aiken Axler & #80 Sage VanDerSpin from the “Cars” movie. The full-size custom character cars will be available for the Junior Ride-Along Program. For $59 children ages children ages 6-13 will be able to take a 3 lap ride with a professional race instructor. Kids must be 48 inches tall.
The cars have custom designed racing seats for those smaller bodies. The Joie of Seating (owner/operator Randy LaJoie, 2 time NASCAR champion) has taken special care to ensure the safety of the children. The seats utilitize built-in shoulder & head protection as well as the same type of five-point safety harness used by professional drivers.
