Shift, turn, down shift, now slam on the accelerator! It doesn’t matter who you are, it’s a fun day when you can race a nearly $300,000 Ferrari around a professional racetrack as a seasoned driving expert guides you on how to not let that jerk in the yellow Lamborghini pass you. Unless of course, you’re the jerk in the yellow Lamborghini, then you’ll want to pass that asshole in the Ferrari.
If you are a car enthusiast even to the smallest degree, you are going to have an absolute blast at Exotics Racing. Located at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, you’ll have your choice of an impressive garage of supercars ranging from Porsches, Ferraris, McLarens, Lamborghinis, to even some James Bondesque Aston Martins (minus the weaponry, we think).
You start the day with a quick classroom training taught by a professional driver who gives you the basics of when to take it slow, where to slam on the gas, and the ideal speeds to take corners without spinning out your absurdly expensive ride. Afterwards, you’ll hop into a 505HP Corvette Z-06 for the ride of your life as a gentleman with no apparent fear of dying drives you around the track at professionally blistering speeds. Be sure to buckle up tight because you’ll be sideways drifting through every corner. Saving the best for last, you wait for your car to pull up, and off you go.
HOW MUCH IT COSTS:
5 Lap packages range from $199 to $299 depending on the car, with each additional lap costing $50. Alternatively, you may choose combo packages that put you behind the wheels of a range of exotic cars. For those who don’t care to drive, drifting ride alongs are only $99.
First time drivers really don’t find their comfort zone in the first few laps, so it is a good investment to pay for an extra lap or two.
HOW TO GET TO EXOTICS RACING:
Exotics Racing is located at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway off of Interstate 15. If you don’t have access to your own transportation, arrange for a by-the-hour limousine when you make your reservation, or simply rent a car for the day.
