April, 2010 – Cars are one of the universal symbols of freedom, the embodiment of man’s ability to break free from the chains of geography and extend his reach to the farthest corners of the Earth. When the rubber hits the asphalt, however, there is one thing that cars can do that almost everyone sat in the seat of a powerful vehicle has dreamt of doing: going really fast. Exelement knows that car lovers marvel at the engineering prowess that creates some of the most brilliant road machines in the world and each and everyone of them also loves to feel the road rushing past them at high speeds. The company has prepared a special package for this year’s Father’s Day and, if your dad thinks himself a car aficionado, a day in the cockpits of some of the most powerful vehicles in the world sure sounds like the perfect gift.
A Hair Raising Experience
Exelement offers the Ferrari vs. Lamborghini challenge in several different venues around the United Kingdom. Each venue offers the same basic activities but has customized extras that make each experience uniquely special and uniquely fun. Here is a list of the places where you can have this extreme experience, along with some of the details for the day’s schedule.
- Prestwold Hall: the day begins with a welcome ceremony followed by an introductory session covering safety and circuit driving techniques. After the briefing, you will have 3 demonstration laps at the side of an instructor in a performance training car. Once the demonstration is over, you will be given the reigns to a Ferrari 360/575, followed by a Lamborghini Gallardo – you will be able to drive each of the cars for four laps around the track, in order to discover for yourself which one truly is the best. You finish the day with a two-lap hatch passenger ride with your instructor, and are then given a personal driving assessment from the driving professionals at the track.
- York, Kenilworth and Oxfordshire: after the warm welcome you will go through the necessary safety measures as well as essential driving techniques that you will use on the track. After the exposition ends you’ll be given the keys of an exotic Ferrari 360 Modena for 4 laps of high speed action. Afterwards, it’s the turn of the Lamborghini Gallardo, which will take you drifting around the bends (like no Aston Martin driving ever could). The day ends with a small ceremony where you are handed a certificate that validates your supercar driving days experience.
