Speed Freak

Burn rubber at Exotics Racing School


Strap into a Ferrari for your own Fast and Furious adventure.

Hightail it to the Exotics Racing School at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, where you can choose from more than 30 Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, and Aston Martins as you speed down their new 1.4-mile racetrack.

After a technical briefing and “discovery lap” as a passenger, you'll be ready to pedal to the metal, with the help of a professional instructor.

Designed by French stuntman Romain Thievin (who played Matt Damon's stunt double in The Bourne Identity), the 1,800-foot track features long straightaways and 11 hairpin turns.

Don't be afraid to push these cars to the limit: that $440,000 Lamborghini you're driving tops out at 217 miles an hour, and you'll hit speeds of up to 130 mph on the track.

Can't decide which car to race? Drive a combination of up to 14 cars or, for the really adventurous, ask about their private stunt-driving course in a souped-up Mini Cooper.

No word on if Charlize Theron's stuntwoman from The Italian Job runs this portion, but here's hoping.
