You may not know it, but Sleep Train Amphitheatre in San Diego isn’t just a music venue. It’s also home to Xtreme Adventures’ (XA) next autocross event which puts everyday people in the driver’s seat of exotic sports cars to test your skills on their race course.
First, you’ll pick your preferred date and time for the Exotic Car Drive event. Currently they are offering two dates in SD, either Saturday, January 18 or Sunday, January 19. On your driving day, you’ll get to learn about the car and receive a personal 1-on-1 coaching sessions from their professional instructors.
Following a safety briefing and a course overview, you’ll have the chance to jump into a Ferrari or Lamborghini and take to the asphalt. But don’t get too excited because the first lap has to be taken at 10 mph, safety first!
Once your Ryan Gosling driving gloves are on (you know you own them), it’s time to get the party started. However, passengers aren’t allowed because the seat will be filled with one of their instructors; so your friends will need to be in the viewing area to watch your performance. And since you’ll need evidence to show those who weren’t able to see your need for speed, XA will send you back home with photographs of your adventure.
If a few hours aren’t enough, you can also choose to rent an exotic car for a day, weekend or more which will be delivered right to your door. Or choose to take your team out for a corporate event and reserve private and day-long sessions for groups of five to 200. Reservations begin at $249 for a five-lap Exotic Car Drive experience.
