What is included in a Co-Pilot Ride Along?
Well… it’s not everyday you get the opportunity to ride around Area 27, so that in itself is a privilege! On top of that, your ticket includes time to meet your driver and admire your chosen sports car, roughly 20 minutes of track time, one VIP reception entry, one drink ticket and a swag bag. There will be a professional photographer on site if you wish to purchase images of your experience. We will provide a fresh balaclava for every co-pilot for underneath your helmet.
What do I wear?
Wear whatever is comfortable. It will be hot! Warning - adrenaline rushes also cause sweating ;)
Will I get car sick?
If you are prone to car sickness - than maybe. The track is fast and windy. Taking video and photographs while in the car also increases the likelihood of queasiness.
What is the minimum age to go for a ride?
16 years old. You must have a guardian sign your waiver.
Can I be a driver?
Unfortunately, unless you are an Area 27 member or a professional sports car driver, you cannot. If you are serious about wanting to drive, check out Academy 27.
Can I bring my own helmet?
Yes! We encourage you to bring your own helmet if you have one! We will be providing fresh balaclava, but we are sure you might prefer your own helmet too.
Can I bring a partner to the reception?
Yes, but he/she will have to buy their own ticket. We recommend getting those tickets online NOW - as they will likely sell out.
Do I have to go for the whole ride?
The ride is up to your discretion. If you have had enough after 10 mins, please let your driver know and you can come in early.
What should I bring to the track?
Hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, cash, lawn chair or beach blanket, binoculars, and a camera!
Can I pay to enter at the gate?
Yes, we will be accepting cash at the gate for those who have not bought a ticket in advance. We highly recommend purchasing a reception ticket in advance as they will sell out.
Besides Co-pilot ride-alongs, what is happening at Area 27 that day?
The paddock will be filled with tons of businesses showcasing their products. Picture a “Car and Toy show” We will have RV’s, Boats, Water sport machines, Harley Davidsons, and a variety of Automobiles on site. In addition there will be music, food trucks vendors and more!!
Can I bring my family and children to this event? How much do they cost?
Yes! This is a family friendly event. Children under the age of 10 are free. Unfortunately the reception is an adult only event.
Does my VIP Reception ticket include general admission to the day time festivities?
Yes. If you have bought a VIP reception ticket, that also includes your admission to Area 27 all day. Things kick off at 10:30 a.m.
Can I leave Area 27 and come back later?
Yes, all entrants are given a wrist band, as long as you keep that on, you are allowed to come and go.
