When it comes to driving events, Miles Ahead has done it all. In partnership with BMW Group's MINI brand, our company started at the world famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway, conducting a variety of driver training programs. Over the years, and with an elite instructor team comprised of Indy 500 drivers, we've designed and executed performance driver training programs, advanced teen driver training, fleet driver safety training, exclusive VIP incentive trip experiences, scenic drives, fundraising events, and corporate team building events.
We are now solely focused on bringing the adrenaline-pumping excitement of open wheel racing to fundraising and company team building events. We come directly to your location with a fleet of state-of-the-art, lithium ion battery powered racing karts and set up a race course in your own parking lot (or nearby venue if your parking lot isn't suitable or available).
Nonprofit organizations are anxious to provide their patrons with fresh, exciting, and engaging fundraising events. Silent auctions, golf outings, and walks for charity all have their place, but if you really want to amp up the excitement of your next fundraising event, try Fundracing!
Individuals and company teams compete against one another in the same event on a timed autocross course in our state-of-the-art, electric powered racing karts. Drivers sign up their own sponsors, whose contributions go to your organization. Miles Ahead handles online registration, online processing of the participants' sponsor donations, and virtually all aspects of event administration and execution. We deliver a highly memorable, turn-key fundraising event that your organization's supporters will eagerly anticipate each year.
Our racing events consist of time trial runs, one kart at a time, through a challenging autocross course. Because we do this instead of wheel-to-wheel racing, we are not obligated to use bigger, heavier karts with wrap-around bumpers typically found at public karting facilities.
You will be stunned at the performance of our Italian-built, Top Kart, 15 horsepower, electric-powered racing karts, which are capable of achieving a top speed of over 50 mph and generating 1.5 Gs of cornering force, all as you sit just an inch off the ground. Advanced lithium ion batteries, developed by Legacy EV, ensure that the action never has to stop for recharging. Despite the intense driving experience, our events are environmentally friendly and quiet enough to allow casual, trackside conversations.
Nothing gets the adrenaline pumping quite like a timed run through an autocross course with co-workers cheering you on. Miles Ahead brings all the driving fun right to your company's parking lot. Your group will never forget their thrilling runs against the clock and the camaraderie created by friendly competition, away from the stresses of the day-to-day grind. You can form teams to have a spirited competition between different departments within your company and even include teams with customers and vendors. At the end of the day, everyone will come away with a renewed spirit of enthusiasm and commitment to your company.
Having concluded a ten-year partnership with MINI, we transitioned to electric powered racing karts for our fundracing and team building events in 2022. Speeding through an autocross course, an inch off the ground, is an unforgettable thrill!
In 2020, we recognized the challenge that nonprofit organizations had conducting their own fundraising events and that they were constantly seeking unique experiences for their patrons. We now serve this important market with our fundracing events.
2019 was the third consecutive year we conducted the MINI Challenge Performance Driving Event for MINI USA. Drivers new to the MINI brand tested their driving skills in each MINI John Cooper Works vehicle on a timed autocross course.
In 2018, we created and conducted the BMW X-perience program. Featuring BMW's X1, X2 and X3 sports activity vehicles, the program was a combined road & autocross driving experience that originated at BMW dealerships.
Our MINI Performance Motoring School at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway provided motoring enthusiasts the chance to drive a high performance MINI at the world's most famous race track.
Miles Ahead instructors are among the most accomplished racers in the world. 4-time Indy 500 competitor (4th place in 2010) Alex Lloyd, is shown instructing students at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
In 2013, Miles Ahead became the first company in the 100+ year history of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to be granted permission to conduct performance driving training on its famed grounds.
Our Teen Driving Intensive at Indianapolis Motor Speedway provided thousands of young drivers advanced car control instruction by professional race car drivers in a safe environment.
Miles Ahead's first program was the Teen Driving Intensive at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in November of 2011. Our instructor team was comprised of several Indy 500 drivers, a tradition that continues.
Miles Ahead was co-founded in early 2011 by 7-time Indy 500 and 4-time 24 Hours of Le Mans driver, Stephan Gregoire (right) and motorsports marketing entrepreneur, Ted Woerner (left).
