But If you’ve ever had the desire to not only take a ride in a real-life racing Ferrari, but have the chance to drive it at max speed down a wide-open road, the Dream Racing Experience allows you to live out your wildest Formula 1 fantasies at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

When you arrive, it’s refreshing to find that the staff is as knowledgeable as they are friendly, which really enhances your day at the track. No matter your skill level, they’ll have you feeling comfortable as ultra-realistic simulator sessions are included with all Dream Racing packages. These 3D training sessions of the track are so authentic, you’ll have trouble deciphering what’s real and what’s not. Once the simulator session is complete you’re ready to test your new found racing skills on the actual track. With top speeds that approach 200mph, we recommend trying the professional race cars versus the street cars, but no mater which ride you ultimately decide to take for a spin on the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, by the time you’re done, you’ll be feeling like you just unleashed your inner Mario Andretti.

Prices are dependent on the type of car you choose, and you can race five laps in a Porshe Cayman GTS for a little under $200, but if you are looking for something more exotic, five laps in a Lamborghini Huracan will set you back about $400. If you’re a true racing enthusiast, Dream Racing lets you go “Full Throttle,” which gives you 40 adrenaline-packed laps (or the equivalent of a half day at the track) for a cool $4,000. If racing isn’t your thing, you can do a ride-along with a professional driver, or there’s even the option of doing a Drifting Ride Along, which is perfect for anyone who’s always been curious to know what it would feel like to be one of the characters from “The Fast & Furious”.

With the Dream Racing experience, you no longer have to fantasize about being a professional race car driver, because after a day at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, you’ll feel like you’re ready to take on the tour.
