Dream Racing Las Vegas

Written by 

If you are in the United States near Las Vegas, and at the same time have a passion for sports cars, you may not miss a visit to Las Vegas Motor Speedway just outside the city. At this place there is a good opportunity to drive really fast in your dreamcar (or dream cars) as the company has many different special cars to choose from. Rent My Dream visited the racetrack in July 2015 and test drove a few of the company's Ferraris.

You can visit the company Dream Racing directly on the racetrack, but when booking in advance you can get free transport back and forth between the racetrack and downtown Las Vegas. We had contacted them in good time and reserved our experience. At the agreed time we were picked up together with other participants and had a nice ride to the track. The ride from Las Vegas to Dream Racing was only half an hour. As we approached the racetrack, we could sense that it was a place where there was the ability to run really fast. The course is about 2 km long with 9 challenging curves and an enticing longside, where the cars easily gets over 300 km /h.

Upon arrival, we walked past the rows of parked Ferrari, Lamborghinis, Porsches and other sports cars. We were welcome and were led into a classroom where the day's instructors introduced themself. Driving technique and ideal race curves was shown on the big screen

We had ordered a Ferrari 458 Italia, the Ferrari F430 Scuderia and subsequent hotlaps in a Ferrari 458 GT Race Car for the day. All participants was facing the 40 degree celcius heat, when we walked to the pitlane, where today's cars was parked in advance. People quickly found the car that was ordered, and then there was only to get into helmets and jumpsuits, but due to the heat, all preferred to do only with the helmet.

scuderiaThe first car we took out on the track was a 458 Italia. It felt great to sit in the driver's seat and start the engine's 570 hp to live. The large 4.5 liter V8 started with a roar and we were ready. The instructor in the passenger seat gave the green light and we ran out on the field. For each lap we felt more like home, and the lap time got shorter and shorter, and after a few laps 300 km /h felt not as something special.

Then it was time for "our" Ferrari 430 Scuderia. Here we sat behind the wheel of a car with a 4.3 liter V8 engine with its 510 hp that managed a top speed of 317 km/h and 0-100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds. The car felt great and the curves was easy to take at high speed. The long side suddenly felt very short at the end with over 300 km/h when it ended and we had to brake fast to slow down and steer the car through the next left turn.

If it had been fun to drive the first two cars, it was nothing next to the day's last experience. With one of the instructors behind the wheel, we were taken around at the track in a real Ferrari Race Car with 512 horsepower V8 with 0-100 in 3.6 seconds. Another addictive experience.

gtAfter the driving experience it was time for the distribution of diplomas for today's efforts and then free play in and out of the parked cars. It's not every day you have the chance to crawl around in cars such as Lamborghini Aventador, McLaren MP4-12C, several Ferraies, Porsches and Mercedes SLS SMG.

As previously mentioned, this is an outstanding experience that can be clearly recommended. Although they say that "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas", we always will have this experience with us from the company with some of the world's most expensive fast cars.bane
