31st March
written by Todd Harrison

As a little extra gift for my daughter’s 21st birthday I got Veronica an hour with a professional racer car instructor at the Firebird International raceway in Chandler, AZ. She got to drive 3 laps at any speed she liked in a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.

I couldn’t get a top speed off the film footage and she didn’t look down to check either. But it must have been fast enough because the instructor was a bit shaken at the end.  I don’t think he was ready for a girl to drive the Lambo at such speeds. She was the only driver to be allowed out on the raceway without a lead pace car so I’m thinking they really had no expectation she could push that sports car to its limits. She drove great and made the place sound like a real race track on race day for all 3 laps. What an amazing sounding car when it is being pushed.

If you’re in the area you can setup your own race day at: Global Exotic Car Rentals www.globalexoticcarrentals.com or Call 480-719-7377

I cut a video together of the event and tried to keep the footage in real time between two cameras. But I did cut in 3 time repeats for the big straight away down the back of the track just for the added enjoyment.
