Race a Super-Car in Orlando or Daytona Beach

I look good in yellow, don't you think? This Lamborghini  was my ride for the morning.

Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Porsches, oh my.

Wonder what it’s like to crawl behind the wheel of one of these super cars? I’m not talking about just admiring one while it’s parked, either. I’m talking about seeing what it can do, ramping it up to speed on a real race track, screeching around cones and stomping on the brakes.

I got to enjoy this amazing adventure at Walt Disney World Speedway in Orlando. You can enjoy it there and at Daytona International Speedway, too, thanks to the Exotic Driving Experience.

Here’s how it works.

First, you pick your ride from a fleet of Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Aston Martins, Porsches, Audis and Nissans.  After some instruction, you wipe the sweat off your palms and take your new set of wheels out for a spin. You have a professional driver in the passenger seat to help you navigate the course, give you driving tips, and insure you live to see dinner.

My experience was fun, adrenalin-inducing, and definitely different from anything else I’ve ever done.

Insider’s tip: If you want enough brownie points to open a fudge factory, give this experience as a present to the thrill-seeker in your life. Through Dec. 31, 2012, EDE is offering 10 percent off all driving experience reservations.
