|The three of us after our thrill rides|
While we were in Las Vegas, I had the e-ticket ride of my life! We went to Exotics Racing, an attraction that allows you to drive an exotic sports car (think Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, etc.) around a 1.2 mile track.
Drivers are given a brief group instruction, and then taken for 1 lap in a BMW X5 to familiarize them with the track. Before they know it, they’re on the track in the sports car of their choice, along with a professional instructor who provides guidance the entire time. A typical package includes 5 laps on the track, which has 7 turns and an 1,800 foot straight away, where drivers can reach speeds of more than 100 mph.
Kevin drove an Aston Martin and Sean drove a Lamborghini Gallardo, and both loved the experience. Being the chicken that I am, I opted for a 2 lap ride-along with a professional drift driver in a Corvette. We topped more than 110 mph, and it was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life!
