With massive shoes to fill by the the highly successful but departing F430 GT. Ferrari stepped up its game with production of the 458 GT. Starting from scratch, Ferrari outfitted the 458 GT with new brakes, extensive use of carbon fiber and composite parts reducing weight, and the installation of Ferrari’s legendary “E Diff” and adjustable race oriented suspension. Ferrari saw immediate success winning the 24 Hours at Le Mans. Once thought only available to professional drivers, or “gentleman” racers, you can now get behind the wheel of ours on our race track. Do not mistake this car for its younger street built sibling!
STEP 1 – Transportation
At the time of your booking, you can choose to either select our complimentary round trip transportation from Crystals™ at City Center Las Vegas or to make your own arrangements to Dream Racing. If you choose to drive yourself, we are located at the infield of the Superspeedway at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
STEP 2 – Registration
When you arrive at Dream Racing, one of our hostesses will greet you and assist you in the registration process. At this time you’ll be asked to show a valid driver license.
STEP 3 – Classroom Session
After the registration it’s time for an educational video in our theater. This video gives you a quick lesson of the mechanics of the race car you are about to drive. It also explains how to properly handle the Ferrari 458 GT using correct driving techniques, as well as safety procedures. An animated motion graphic illustrates the use of the ideal driving lines for each turn of the track.
STEP 4 – 3D Simulator Session
The next part of your training will take place in our 3D simulators. Each simulator has been built to specification of the actual Racing Ferrari 458 GT. The simulator boasts a roll cage, the same racing seat, steering wheel, paddle shift, pedals and dashboard as the real Ferrari 458 GT. You will train on an exact laser scanned replica of our track, so if you feel a bump in the simulator, the same bump exists out on the track.
STEP 5 – Suit Up
Next, enter into our dressing rooms to get suited up in your professional racing suit and helmet for optimal in-car communication with your instructor.
STEP 6 – First Driving Session
Finally, the moment you’ve been waiting for: get behind the wheel of the racing Ferrari, strap in and start your engine! You’re in control, it’s time to hit the track for your first driving session. 6 laps around the Las Vegas Motor Speedway infield track.
STEP 7 – Demo Lap Session
Your racing instructor will now take the drivers seat to drive you around the track for an additional 2 laps. These laps give you the opportunity to understand the full power of the Ferrari F430 GT as well as help you to understand the proper lines needed around the turns, braking capacity and speed needed to maximize your lap time.
STEP 8 – Second Driving Session
It’s time to buckle up again for your second 7 lap driving session. Let’s put in to practice all the tips you get from your instructor.
STEP 9 – Telemetry Data Analysis
Telemetry data analysis is a powerful instrument used by professional drivers. After our race technician downloads the race data of your driving session, the instructor will analyze and discuss the details with you to find ways to improve your performance on different areas of the track.
STEP 10 – Third Driving Session
Following your data analysis you will get back into the race car for a final 7 lap session. These laps give you the chance to take all of the information provided to you by the telemetry technician to better your lap times. At this point in your experience you will find yourself pushing the race car faster then you ever thought possible.
STEP 11 – Cool off in our Lounge
After the adrenaline subsides, relax and unwind in our Dream Racing Lounge with its open coffee bar, selection of snacks, and wi-fi. If you have purchased the onboard video prior to your driving experience you’ll be able to view it at this time in the lounge.
