"Had an incredible day at at Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, California. Drove a Nissan GT-R and a Lamborghini Gallardo under the expert instruction of the staff. Then splurged on a drift ride-along with French Pro Racer Evens Stievenart in a modified Corvette Z06. That was one of the best things I've ever experienced in my life. My wife then went after me and she also came away elated and agreed that was the coolest thing we've ever done. So awesome. Would highly recommend. Can't wait to come back for a Ferrari experience and more drift ride alongs!"
