Racing a Ferrari around a world-class race course is something many people dream of but few people experience. Now is your chance to put the pedal to the metal behind the wheel of a Ferrari and make dreams come true!
Your unforgettable day at the track will start with an approximately 20-30 minute classroom session where your professional instructor will go over racing tips, proper driving position, steering techniques, braking, and acceleration with powerful vehicles like the Ferrari, and how to find the optimum racing lines on the course. Once complete, you'll be sent down to the pit to be fitted for your helmet and to prepare yourself for the thrill of a lifetime!
Finally, you will take the driver's seat and have the opportunity to unleash on the course for 3, heart-pumping laps. Your instructor will be in the passenger seat the entire time, giving you real-time feedback and pointers on how to get the most out of both the course and your supercar!
For this Race a Ferrari experience, you will have your choice of either the beloved 458 Italia or its innovative successor, the 488 GTB!
The Ferrari 458 Italia is one of the finest supercars in existence. Setting the standard for all supercars to live up to, this powerful car is capable of hitting speeds of 200+ MPH and going from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.3 seconds. It's a true masterpiece of engineering!
The Ferrari 488 GTB is the completely redeveloped successor to the 458 Italia. In case you didn't think Ferrari could outdo themselves, they did it with this car! Incorporating the newest technologies from Formula 1 and the limited edition LaFerrari, the 488 is faster, sharper, and more refined than any other car in existence. Hitting 60 MPH in just 3 seconds flat and reaching top speeds of 200+ MPH, this thing will satisfy your need for speed for sure!
The Road Course at MSR Houston is just 40 minutes south of Houston in Angleton. The motorsports park in which it's located opened in 2005 and since then has become the premier road course facility in Texas. The road course boasts 1.35 miles of road with a balance of low, medium, and high speed corners. Safety is extremely important at MSR Houston and the track is 40 feet wide with paved run-off areas in all critical breaking and exit zones. It's the perfect location to test your limits!
GrandSport Speedway is just 45 minutes from downtown Houston in Hitchcock. It's been a true staple in Houston's motorsports history as it's been around since the 1960's. It started as a private testing facility for Mecom Racing and has grown into the GrandSport Speedway we know today. The 1.4-mile road course boasts 10 turns and a 1,000-foot straightaway giving you the opportunity to reach speeds over 100 MPH before hitting the brakes for turn one. Test your need for speed and put the pedal to the metal on this iconic track!
