The Huracan + GT3 combo package sounds like a winner.

I did 4 cars at exotic racing... started with the GTR since I wanted to learn the track with an easier car...
I did not like the GTR,

But I enjoyed the Porsche, McLaren but adored the Ferrari.

Very well run event.

I like that they adapt quickly to your track experience. Since I had a lot of said experience, the instructor took one lap to realize he did not need to tell me where his "safe" braking points were.

Had a blast. He also did.

Glad you enjoyed it, i did not

The rules they had were just stupid
  1. GTR had engine light on
  2. car was set on the ECO mods ( ECO mode on a track !!)
  3. traction control fully on
  4. I was not allowed to use first or second gear, had to use third gear to accelerate which made my 335 faster than the GTR

Did they make you drive full auto, and told you not to hit redline too?

No they made sure it is manual because they did not want to use 1st and second gear.
I actually stopped the early ( lap number 5 , had it booked for 8 laps) and just left without saying a word.

Care to elaborate?

We took my best bud to do this for his bachelor party. He had a great time (GT-R and 458, took place in 2012). It's on my list to do at some point.

ive watched alot of videos of the cars and the instructors never tell them to slow down or tell them to not drive in a certain gear.

If you are looking for the experience of being in a super car and drive one for a short amount of time then yes do it.

I had access to a lot of GTRs and it was not my first time driving one. I wanted to try it on the track so i can push the car to the limit and see how it drives.
But as i stated earlier the rules they had, made the experience very lame.

do you think the reason they did not allow 1st or 2nd gear in the gtr was because they assume most people cant handle that?

im going to be renting an aventador which is even faster, i really would hope they dont screw me like that

I have no idea. They do know me and are familiar with our company so they knew i have experience handling fast cars.

Have been to Exotics several times.

http://www.exoticsracing.com/driving-experience

My favourite cars are F430 Scud, 458, Gallardo and McClaren MP-4C.

My overall favourite is the F430 Scud. Beautiful to drive.
