Talking kinda off topic....but not really

I know this isnt E90 related but I would think if you are on this site you are in some way a car fanatic and you will appreciate the experience.

I recently got back from Vegas and I had the opportunity to book a time with a company called Exotics Racing. The time I booked was for 5 laps in an Audi R8 V10, and 5 laps in a Ferrari 458 Italia.....and let me tell you boys and girls it was 20 mins of pure AWESOME!!!

These guys have a multitude of exotic cars to choose from and lap packages that range from 2 to 20+ laps. Dont get me wrong it's not cheap, but lets put it this way....we are on a site about modifying an already fairly pricey car, most should have a little extra pocket change for some fun.

458 Italia
Gallardo
Superleggera
Murcielago lp 700 aventador
F430 F1 and Scud
and the list goes on....

This was my first experience ever on a road course track. I have done 1/4 miles but nothing like this. The instructors were fantastic in helping you to gain confidence around the track and really made the whole thing even better. I got the video package, here is the link to videos of my 2 drives. I warn you now....my facial expression in the Italia might cause you to LOL and require you to watch the video twice!!





Here is the link to the site

www.exoticsracing.com

Well guys enjoy the videos and if any of you decide to go let me know how it turns out although I already know!!

Also 1 quick tidbit of info....at the beginning of the R8 video you will see 2 F430's go past me the second one is the buddy I went with. He had about a 45 or so second head start....on the 4th lap you watch me pass him!!! HAHAHAHAHA

Was this your first time on track?
I was wondering if you have previous track experience can you just tell him to be quiet and just drive your way. Or would there be other companies to just rent you track exotics?

Yup my first time on a track, they ask you about previous experience and that of course will effect how much direction they give you but even with experience i'm sure their track knowledge would help
