Exotic Driving Experience Opens at Disney
A new exotic driving experience is set to open at the Walt Disney World Speedway this week. Beginning January 16, guests have the opportunity to take a high speed whirl in some of the world’s most exotic and expensive vehicles.
From the $300,000 Ferrari (0 to 60 in 3 seconds) to the $100,000 Porsche 997S, you can choose a luxury vehicle and take a 6 lap trip around the famed raceway. You can choose your car in advance, and view the different vehicles online. Each vehicle has a different package cost–the Ferrari will set you back $389, while the Audi R8 or the Porsche are priced out at $199.
You’ll have some training before you get behind the wheel, and a professional driver will accompany you and offer advice from the passenger seat. The standard drive package is one mile, or six laps of the track, but additional lap packages are available.
Drivers need to be 18 years or older to participate; the track also offers a ride along package, with a starting age of 14. If you want to participate, you’ll need to book your ride in advance, and show up at the Walt Disney World Speedway on the day of your package. A helmet will be provided, and you’ll need to wear long pants and close-toed shoes (sneakers are fine). You should bring your driver’s license and any corrective lenses or glasses you need to drive.
Expect to spend a few hours at the track, with time spent before and after your ride. There are stands and viewing areas for the other members of your party, and photography packages are available on site as well.
The new exotic driving experience is a companion to the existing Richard Petty racing experience, and should be on the wish list for both racing fans and car enthusiasts.
