Exotic Driving Experience of Orlando did a road trip to New Orleans and brought their 5 exotic supercars to NOLA MOTORSPORTS. Checked out the dates and they were there on my days off so this deal was done.
They offer 5 cars and the price to drive 6 laps on the road track goes up with the value of the car. The cars range in price from $99,000 up to $295,000. The cost to drive the cars range from $169 up to $419.
I choose the middle of the road at $299 for the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. This car will do 0-60 in 3.7 and 0-100 in 6.9, fast enough for me.
The people for Exotic Driving were great especially when I showed up a day late for my drive. Thought I had booked for Wed but some how had booked it for Tues. They had no problem with this and I got my ride in.
After running a lap and using the paddle shifter, we decided that I would be better off in auto mode. I just could not get it right that upshift was rightside and left was down shift and I had enough to worry about driving a $220,000 at 145MPH without worrying if I was shifting right.
The best advise I can give you is to listen to your coach and do exactly what he says especially when he says "BRAKE HARD". You will be braking from 130+MPH in about 50 yrds and making a hard right turn at 60 mph. Braking the right way was definitely the hardest thing for me to get right.
Great fun, will do it again next year and hope I will do better with the paddle shifting.
