Has anyone attended a "Full Throttle Test Drive" event yet? If so, let us know what you thought of it in the comments area.
(from a Chrysler Group press release)
Have you ever wanted to be a professional test driver? Going fast on a tight course and squealing the tires in the turns, just like on TV? Or maybe you've always wanted to take a 4x4 on an off-road adventure over logs and through rivers? Dallas/Fort Worth-area residents will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to try out all of these things in a controlled setting when Chrysler Group's "Full Throttle Test Drive Event" comes to Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas, on Saturday, Nov. 18 and Sunday, Nov. 19.
Consumers are being invited to test drive the full line of 2007 Chrysler, Jeep(R) and Dodge products, including the all-new Chrysler Sebring, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and Dodge Nitro, on three specially designed test tracks. One track will showcase the ride and handling of the Chrysler Group's passenger cars and a second track will feature the off-road capability of sport-utility vehicles like the Jeep Wrangler, Grand Cherokee and Commander.
The third track will be dedicated to demonstrating the power and performance of the Chrysler Group's SRT product line. Professional test drivers will take consumers on the ride of a lifetime in the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, Chrysler Crossfire SRT6 and Dodge Viper SRT10. Thrill rides will be available each day at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.
All event attendees will receive a $400 consumer rebate certificate to be used toward the purchase of an eligible Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge vehicle. As an added bonus, one lucky event attendee also has the chance to win a brand new Chrysler Crossfire Coupe.
"The 'Full Throttle Test Drive Event' is not your ordinary driving event. It is more like a celebration of all the great Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge vehicles in our product portfolio," said Michael Milad, Director - Southwest Business Center, DaimlerChrysler Corp. "The tour brings all three of the Chrysler Group brands together for the public to experience in an experiential way through thrilling test drive courses."
The weekend event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day and is free of charge. Food and drinks will be available. Consumers interested in attending the "Full Throttle Test Drive Event" are encouraged to pre-register for a general arrival time on Saturday or Sunday by calling 888-809-7088 or visiting http://www.ridedrivewin.com/pr , however pre-registration is not required to attend. Drivers must be 18 years or older with a valid driver's license to participate in the ride-and-drive activities.

Re: Grand Prairie, Texas: Next Stop for Full Throttle Tes...
I posted a comment in the Houston Full Throttle section.
I really enjoyed the event and basically just went to test-drive the Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited. I loved it. You can basically test drive all of the vehicles as much as you want around coned-tracks. They give you two tickets to drive the SRT vehicles and you can be pretty rough with them. It was a great experience that solidified my decision to buy a diesel Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited when they arrive.
Be aware that the off-road track in Houston was nothing more than some speed bumps and tires cut in half. Maybe this stop will be different.
