What It’s Like Driving A Porsche 911 On A Race Track
I was supposed to go to Las Vegas back in March and the Covid ruined that trip. In preparation for it, my significant other had purchased a gift certificate for me to Exotics Racing.
The gift was meant for me to go on a ride with an actual race car driver but I decided to upgrade it to driving the car myself with the racer in the passenger seat. For my track experience, I chose the Porsche 911 GT3.2. I used to have a Porsche 924 Turbo and while that was just a poor man's Porsche, I have always appreciated the brand. If you're not a Porsche guy, don't fret, there are plenty of other exotics to choose from.
5 laps was just under $300 with tax and it was money well spent. There is a short orientation class prior to driving and then they take you on two track exploration laps in a Porsche Cayenne to get the lay of the land. After that they put you in the car and make sure you are in the optimal riding position. Teo, the racer from Italy, then took shotgun and gave a brief rundown of the car. A few minutes later we were blasting onto the track with Teo instructing me the whole way on how to get the most out of the car.
It took me about 3 laps to get comfortable and next time I will be doing more than 5. It was an absolute blast, and I highly recommend it if you make it to Vegas. We also spent a few extra bucks and went along with a driver in the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. That was worth the money as well. We had about $500 wrapped into it all with tipping the drivers and enjoyed every second of it!
