With Father’s Day on the horizon, a son could make his race fan father very happy with a gift of a VIP Day with former Formula One driver Christian Fittipaldi at the Exotic Driving Experience (EDE) on the Walt Disney World Speedway. Exotic Driving Experience, which opened in January, offers customers the chance to climb behind the wheel and drive exotic supercars on a real racetrack.
The Disney Blog had the honor of completing a ride-along with Fittipaldi at the wheel and it was quite the experience. Today, EDE announced a new offering, VIP Day with Christian Fittipaldi. Here’s a video of our ride along with Fittipaldi at the wheel.
EDE has partnered with the renowned international driver to offer an exclusive exotic car driving program this summer. Limited to only 24 participants, this is truly the ultimate driving event for supercar enthusiasts.
Fittipaldi, a native of Brazil, is among the few drivers in the world to have competed in every major series including Formula One, IndyCar and NASCAR and in the world’s biggest races including the Indy 500, Monaco Grand Prix, 24 Hours of LeMans and the Daytona 500.
VIP Day with Christian Fittipaldi includes four 8-lap driving experiences for each participant, putting them behind the wheel of some of the world’s most exotic, high performance driving machines, including: Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini Gallardo, Porsche 997S and Audi R8.
Participants will have the opportunity to discuss exotic cars and driving tips with Fittipaldi and they’ll sit shotgun for a high speed Thrill Ride with him as he familiarizes them with the speeds and switchbacks of The Exotics Course at Walt Disney World® Speedway.
“Exotic Driving Experience is an attraction that lets you experience the performance of some of the world’s finest driving machines,” says Mike Bartelli, Chief Marketing Officer of Petty Holdings, LLC, owner and operator of EDE. “This new exclusive program will let customers truly become VIPs for a day, driving cars most of us can only dream of, while receiving feedback from a world-class driver.”
This VIP exotic car experience is $1,999 per participant and will take place on June 8, 2012. Other program elements include breakfast or lunch, souvenir plaque, in-car video with driving statistics and souvenir EDE merchandise autographed by Fittipaldi.
