    That's a nice bucket list item.

    I always wanted to drive a Ferrari.

    Since it says "race" it means there are other cars on the track at the same time trying to go faster than you, correct? If not, it should say "drive" a Ferrari.

    That's why I wrote "drive" in the title/description!

    to be fair, if you get the right "instructor" (sitting passenger with his own brake pedal). You can go pretty much as fast as you want.
    2 of instructors at Exotic Racing are Trackhq regulars.... make sure you tip them well.....
    if you are unlucky, you will get an instructor braking for you.......

    pucsicsal - The fastest unit of speed measurement is not the speed of light, it is the speed of flatout. Hence the BRZs limit.

    Thanks, but a little low: 25% of face value?

    Actually, A LOT of trackhq posters are/were instructors at Exotics.

    It takes literally no track experience whatsoever to be an instructor at EXR.



    OP, contact their customer service and ask them to exchange it for a car you would want to drive (or anything within the $400 range)? Might be better than trying to sell it at a discount.

    Believe it or not, I really don't have any interest in driving one of those cars, (maybe a Miura SV!).
    I'm moving in a couple months and would rather use the money for that.....
