Certain transport and destination experiences just go together perfectly – much like Aston and Martin: gondola rides in Venice, yellow cabs in New York, tuk-tuks in Bangkok and, of course, caning supercars (responsibly, naturally) in Los Angeles. Forgetting the speed limit isn’t usually advice you should follow, but here in the vista of California, with a backdrop of the world-famous Auto Club Speedway, it’s a way of life.
This thrilling petrol-head experience is your ticket to hop in your dream car for 2 hours of pedal-to-the-metal bliss. Once you’ve pulled yourself away from goggling at the surroundings (and the incredible motors on display – we’ll get to that), you’ll go through some one-to-one coaching and instruction by a professional racing instructor. All the gear is provided, and once you’re all kitted out, they’ll take you through a 30-minute safety orientation that’ll put you through your paces and make sure you’ll be able to push your chosen car to its limits. You’ll cover proper driving position, steering techniques, car specifications (power, gearbox, braking and accelerating) and they’ll teach you proper racing lines. These guys love speed as much as you, so don’t worry, it’s all exciting stuff.
Whoa! Hold your horsepower there, racers. We’re not quite ready to jump in the driver’s seat just yet. Trust us, it’s worth the wait. It’s time to jump into a Porsche Cayenne GTS for a 2-lap test drive in the passenger seat first so you can get used to the conditions of the track, as well as the sight of the world flying past.
And now (finally!), it’s time to take your choice of supercar out for some hot laps with your experienced co-pilot encouraging you throughout. It’s a blast. In fact, the only problem is choosing which automotive work of art to drive. Will it be the Lamborghini Gallardo lp560, Ferrari F548 GT, McLaren 570s, Nissan GTR, Aston Martin Vantage…
Speed is the name of the game on this track, so hit the gas and feel the rush, accelerating up to 130 miles per hour around the circuit. The Auto Club Speedway is built for high-speed races, and has hosted the likes of Nascar and races from the National Hot Road Association. You’re in good company here, so put in those fastest laps to end up in pole position on the podium.
