Champagne Wishes and Ferrari Dreams: Xtreme Xperience at NOLA Motorsports Park

22:35 July 11, 2016

Want a little thrill in your life? Love living on the edge? Think taking a race car for a spin sounds like a super cool thing to do? We do too. So the Where Y’at team took a field trip out to Avondale on the Westbank to check out the NOLA Motorsports Park’s Xtreme Xperience. At NOLA Motorsports, you will have the chance to get behind the wheel of a Ferrari, a Porsche, a Lamborghini or a Nissan GT-R and drive at breakneck speeds on a race track, with the added security of a pre-drive safety video and under the supervision of a skilled instructor. Not sure you dare to drive a supercar just yet? You can opt for a ride-along instead, which will satisfy your need for speed while leaving the control in the hands of an experienced driver. My driver had us cruising at 142 miles per hour. At speeds like that, this isn't for the faint of heart or the weak of stomach.

There are two race tracks to choose from and a variety of packages, so there’s something for thrill-seekers of all ages and all levels of bravery. NOLA Motorsports also offers apparel for sale, as well as photo options and in-car video so you can relive your full-throttle moments and embarrassing exclamations for all eternity. Zoom.
