You see yourself behind the wheel of a super sleek and beautiful exotic car that is one of the most powerful, high performance sports vehicles in the world. With your feet on the gas and miles of winding racetrack ahead of you, you’re free to fly. And then you wake up.

Fittipaldi Exotic Driving is in Houston at MSR Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth at Texas Motor Speedway and Austin at Driveway Austin. For more information or reservations, visit drivefittipaldi.com.

Fast Lane for Father

Fittipaldi Exotic Driving is offering an Ultimate Fittipaldi Experience for fathers, June 23-24 (Thursday and Friday after Father's Day). The exclusive first-class experience at Texas Motor Speedway features pro-racer Christian Fittipaldi. For more information or to reserve a spot, call (281) 584-6618.

Also, through June 19, FED is offering a 20 percent discount on all driving experiences with the code DRIVE20. Also, gift certificates purchased in this time will reflect a 20 percent discount when a driving experience is booked.

But, it doesn’t have to be a dream. Champion race car driver Christian Fittipaldi and supercar expert Bill Scott teamed up to open Fittipaldi Exotic Driving with year-round tracks in Austin, Fort Worth and Houston. By selling the experience – 6 laps in your choice of vehicle – FED is making fast-car dreams come true. So put on a racing suit and helmet (provided) and hold on!

There's also the option of a Race Ride, where you experience the speed and performance of a race car in the hands of a professional driver. Both are thrilling.

“Some people only daydream of handling an exotic supercar worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. To them, it’s a bucket list item,” says co-owner Fittipaldi. “Through FED, we are making dreams into reality.”

Scott brings nearly 20 years of direct experience with racing and exotic cars. He spent years with Petty Enterprises, a leading NASCAR team, and nearly a decade as an executive with Richard Petty Driving Experience and Exotic Driving Experience.

Fittipaldi is recognized as a leader in the racing world. He is the current two-time defending champion of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar series and has competed in the IndyCar series, CART series, Formula 1 and NASCAR.

The experience begins with classroom instruction detailing the supercar, safety instructions, the course, paddle shifting and communication with the in-car driving instructor. After this introduction, drivers get to know the car they've selected as well as their instructor. Now's a great time for photos with the car.
