Just signed up for the 1pm on Sat.
"Will the FR-S I drive at the event be an Automatic or Manual? The FR-S on tour will be 6-speed automatic transmission versions. We realize that FR-S enthusiasts may naturally prefer to drive the manual version - however, due to logistics, product availability, and insurance concerns, we can only offer the automatic version in our Ride and Drive format. We are confident the paddle-shift equipped automatics will still allow you to experience the precise performance and engineering of the Scion FR-S. Should you wish to experience a 6-spd manual after your FR-S First Ride experience, we encourage you to contact your local Scion dealership."
i have a sneaking suspicion the age limit has to do with their liability insurance.
edit: knew.... I don't think I know any 16 year olds that actually drive....
Thanks for posting this!

I went on Saturday. There was an autocross course about a minute long. We all got multiple runs.
I was really excited for this car. After driving it, not so much.
The steering is really light without much feedback. It might just have been the auto trans, but the engine felt a little weak to me, even compared to a Honda K20. I even prefer Mazda's 2.0 in the Miata to this engine.
Body control is good overall, but you can feel the front bias and the car's natural state is mild understeer. the S2000 feels way more neutral.
They showed us the noise pipe (gimmicky) and gave us free FR-S hats! Good times.
