Want to drive a supercar?


Car enthusiasts have the chance to get behind the wheel of the world's top exotic supercars at Hampton Downs race track, thanks to an online experience company

FreemanX has just announced the new concept which will allow drivers to get behind the wheel of five different supercars, including the V12 Lamborghini Murcielago – a first in the Southern Hemisphere.

Eddie Freeman of FreemanX says the ‘Supercar Driving Experience’ gives everyone the chance to drive cars most of us can only dream of and makes a perfect gift.

“You would be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t want to drive one of these cars. It’s a mind-blowing adrenaline rush,” says Freeman. “Our mission is to offer these experiences at an affordable price so it’s within reach of the vast majority of New Zealanders.”

A comparable experience in Australia to drive the Lamborghini Gallardo costs over NZD$1000, the Gallardo is one option in the FreemanX supercar experience and will be offered at NZD$299 until 2010. Completing the line up is the Ferrari 360, a Lotus Exige and the Bentley Continental GT Speed.

“What we are offering is more than a spin around the track in the passenger’s seat,” says Freeman. “This is a driving experience – the chance to actually sit behind the wheel, smell the leather and feel close to 600 horsepower at your feet. Few people can say they have felt the sheer excitement of driving one of the world’s best supercars and we are in the business of turning these dreams into reality.”

The supercar driving experience will involve three laps of the new Hampton Downs race track with a skilled in-car driving coach who will guide the driver through technique, control and cornering lines. The package is finished with a hot lap in a Mini challenge race car to top off the experience and peak the adrenaline levels.
