Birthday's coming up soon and I'm looking to drive a few exotics around Fontana Speedway.
anyone have good or bad experiences with this?
i'm looking into driving a GTR and possibly a GT3. Is this a good experience?
Thanks in advance.

Extreme Experience uses a "Pace" car that you can't pass. Definitely blows. I had to drop back/gap myself just to get one section of track w/o the limitation. Never did get one full lap at speed.
The other thing to watch out for is the lap count. Extreme Experience touts "3 laps". Before signing up I emailed them to ask if that was an out-lap, one flying lap, and then an in-lap, or 3 flying laps. I was told the latter, but sure enough it was an out-lap, two flying laps, and an in-lap. The lady who answered my email was there and when I asked about it she said, "I wasn't sure what you meant by a flying lap".
Extreme Experience also scolded me for even touching a corner curb. I wasn't sure if they were just paranoid about suspension/tire damage or worried about losing control/pushing the boundaries too far. They also charge money for dropping a wheel off-track.
Don't be surprised if the list of available cars/what you signed up for isn't there that day due to mechanical issues. I wanted to drive a GT-R, McLaren, and an R8 (all cars I might conceivably buy). No R8 on the initial list, so I swapped in a Porsche GT3. Email beforehand says the McLaren is broken so they moved me into a Lambo. When I get there, the R8 is running so I wound up doing 2 sessions in the GT-R and 2 in the R8. They would not let me run 2 sessions back-to-back w/o stopping. I guess they need the idle time in the pit lane to cool things off.
For me as an "experience" it was OK, but as far as truly finding out what the cars can do, it really isn't worth it.
I did wind up buying a GT-R
