Ever dreamed (or in my case, have a husband that has always dreamed) of driving a beautiful, exotic car 90+mph on a racetrack? Xtreme Xperience is definitely for you. I surprised Ben with an early birthday present (He's turning 30 so it had to be big) of driving the car of his dreams on the track at the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Ben had the BEST time and I even got to join in on the fun.
We arrived at the track and got all checked in with the friendly and helpful Xtreme Xperience team. They then sent us over to a quick 30 minute introduction and safety course. It was great to learn about these cars specifically and how they handle compared to regular cars on the road. We also learned a lot about the track to get a better understanding of the specific route we would be driving. After the class we headed straight to gear up for our drive!
Due to nerves, I opted to ride alongside one of the professional drivers instead of driving the car on my own. In my opinion, this was PERFECT for me, because I went SO much faster than I would have ever gone on my own and it was such a blast. I literally felt like I was on a roller coaster and it was so much fun. We drove the Porsche 911 GT3 and I am trying to convince Ben to get me my own one day (dreams are always good to have, right?).
Ben, the tough guy that he is, drove the Audi R8 V10 and loved every second of it! When you drive the car, you are alongside a professional driver who coaches you through the course. They are there to encourage you to go push it on the straight aways (you can go as fast as you want) and also there for safety incase something were to go wrong. I loved this because I knew Ben was safe the whole time he drove. He said it was crazy to be driving the car of his dreams on the Charlotte Motor Speedway track. Race car driver in the making?
I cannot recommend Xtreme Xperience enough! If you are looking for the perfect gift for the adrenaline junkie or person in your life who has always wanted to drive an exotic car, look no further than Xtreme Xperience! Father's Day is just around the corner and it would be the GREATEST gift for any day! Head here to check out their tour locations and dates to find the closest track to you. Ben Perdue, I'm thinking a trip to Seattle for the September 28-30 event might be in our future!
