EXOTIC RACING FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the Exotic Car Racing?
An exotic car driving experience like no other. You'll have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of an exotic car and drive it for several laps around our specially-designed autocross course.
How long is the track? How long am I driving?
Our autocross courses vary but are generally about a mile long. Between registration, vehicle selection, training, driving, and photo pick-up, you can expect to be at the event for approximately 1 hour. The actual driving time on the course will depend on your speed (aprox 5 min).
Do I need to know how to drive stick?
Not at all. All of the vehicles used on the Exotic Car Racing are equipped with "tiptronic"-style semi-automatic transmissions ('F1' in the Ferraris and 'e-Gear' in the Lamborghinis), so you'll be able to race like a pro no matter what.
Do I need any special type of insurance to participate?
No special insurance is required. You are required to have full coverage personal insurance (comprehensive, collision, and liability) on a personal vehicle in order to participate as a driver.
DREAM CAR TOUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is a staff member in the car with me while I drive?
No. We put you behind the wheel and your passenger rides along with you.
Can I bring a friend to ride along with me? Can I bring my whole family?
Absolutely! In fact, passengers can ride along with you free of charge, so bring whoever you'd like. But please do limit yourself to one guest. Most of the cars are two-seaters.
Can my friend follow along in his/her own car?
We don't suggest this. We drive on public roads so obviously we can't prevent anyone from trying to tag along, however because of the nature of the event (lots of turns and road changes) and because we have radios and your friend does not, it's very difficult for people to follow along.
Do I have to follow the group? Can I drive my own route?
You can drive in any order you want provided you don’t pass the lead car and don’t fall behind the tail car. Often, there will be up to a mile between the lead and tail cars, so there’s plenty of freedom on the road. We do require that you remain with the group, and we do not permit drivers to go explore by themselves.
How fast do I get to drive?
Because the Dream Car Tour takes place on public highways and local roads, we drive as you would every day on the street – safely with the flow of traffic. On larger highways, that flow can be a nice brisk pace, while on twisty back roads, we’ll take a pace that makes sure you enjoy the back-and-forth turns.
Our goal is to give you the true "exotic car owner" experience – we want you to know what it’s like to drive these cars as if they were your own. We're not out to tease you with great cars that only go 40mph.
Safety is our number one priority on the Dream Car Tour and we emphasize it constantly.
Do I have to know how to drive stick?
No. All of the vehicles on the Dream Car Tour are either fully automatic or semi-automatic (F1-style “paddle shifters”).
How do I drive a “paddle shift” transmission? Is it hard? Will you teach me?
F1-style paddle shift transmissions are the latest innovation in high performance vehicles. Adopted from the transmission of the world’s fastest professional race cars, it blends the performance and efficiency of a manual transmission with the ease and speed of an automatic.
It takes about 10 minutes for a normal driver to get accustomed to driving a paddle-shift vehicle. We provide full instruction before we depart, and in no time you’ll be driving and shifting like a pro!
Does my own insurance cover me in the Dream Car Tour?
Yes. In all 50 states, if you carry full-coverage insurance (that means Liability, Comp, and Collision) your insurance will automatically carry over and cover you when you rent a car from us – regardless of what you drive or what you rent.
