Good experience Arrival time was incorrectly posted so we arrived and had to wait two hours for experience to begin
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi there Anna, Thank you kindly for taking a moment to share your experience with us! I am incredibly sorry for any confusion caused by the arrival time and despite this hiccup, I am happy to hear that your time out on the track was a good experience. Our partners do ask you to arrive around 8:00 AM to complete your drivers registration, the drivers meeting and the safety class prior to your time out on the track. Once you have completed your classroom instruction, your instructor will get you out on the track for your session immediately. I truly hope that Dan was able to his Porsche Macan to its limits and really feel its power.  Best, Brianna 
Best time I've had driving my car yet! The staff was friendly and helpful, in all aspects of the experience not just the driving.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hi Dale! Thank you for your wonderful review! I am honored to hear that you had the best drive yet! I know how hard our partners work to ensure you have an unforgettable experience and it truly sounds like it was a great day. Cheers! Kind Regards, Brianna 
Cloud9 provided convenient access to an experience that I otherwise would not have been able to connect with. The registration process was easy and intuitive. Brainerd International Racing School gave me the experience of a lifetime. The staff was extremely positive and friendly. They went out of their way to connect with me and my wife and even took video and emailed it to me. My instructor was so smart and experienced with a plethora of knowledge that he was able to share in a very efficient way. If you like fast cars and have dreamed of racing your car on a track this is the place to do it! Thank you BIR School and Cloud9. -Joe
