Have you ever wanted to compare a Ferrari to a Lamborghini or Porsche? All-wheel-drive versus rear-wheel drive? Twin turbo vs. naturally aspirated? Mid-engine vs. rear-engine? This is your chance to live your dream of being a Top Gear presenter and test drive three of the world’s best exotic supercars in this head-to-head, apples-to-apples comparison.

Located only 20 minutes from the French Quarter, our Xtreme Driving Experience offers you the opportunity to DRIVE or RIDE in a selection of the world’s best exotic supercars like the Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4, and Porsche 911 GT3 for an adrenaline-pumping experience on NOLA Motorsports Park’s world-class 1.8 mile racetrack. Forget about exotic car rentals, on the track, you can reach speeds over 140 mph at the fastest exotic driving experience in America!

We've added a Jackson Hole Summer Adventure.

Discover the beauty and history of Jackson Hole - an authentic Western town surrounded by breathtaking mountains and beauty. Jackson Hole, Wyoming, refers to the large valley that includes Grand Teton National Park as well as the town of Jackson and was named for trapper Davey Jackson who favored hunting in the area in the 1800s. Grand Teton National Park - named the Travel Channel's #1 park for wildlife, is just minutes from downtown Jackson and 60 minutes from Yellowstone - the first National Park. Jackson Hole also includes the Bridger-Teton National Forest and many wilderness areas.

We've Added Porsche Sport Driving School!

Scott Ruprecht - Friday, October 13, 2017


We cut a deal with The Porsche Sport Driving School. We can now offer their 1 and 2-day High Performance Driving course to our nonprofit clients for their fundraisers. This adrenaline pumping driving is on an autocross track!

This intensive one-day program begins with a brief classroom session discussing basic vehicle dynamics and the driving line. Participants then begin a series of rotations through the Skid Pad, Performance Driving Techniques, Autocross and track driving sessions. After lunch, participants get another turn on the autocross track during the Autocross Challenge, the Skid Pad and the 911 Turbo Launch Control, and spend the rest of their day lapping the race circuit. While some schools focus on classroom training in an effort to limit vehicle use, at PSDS we believe that you should learn from behind the wheel.

During your one-day Precision course you will be driving the following:

718 Boxster S

Cayman S

Carrera GTS

911 Turbo S

Panamera Turbo
